Door-locking mechanism ensures washer-extractor safety, says company

SYRACUSE, N.Y. — G. A. Braun was recently awarded a U.S. Patent for its Industrial Washer Door Locking Mechanism and System that is used on its Advantage Tilting Side Loader® Washer/Extractor, the company reports. 

Braun says it was the first company to feature this technology, displaying it at the 2015 Clean Show in Atlanta. Only G. A. Braun-authorized purchasers are permitted to use this patented technology.

“We are very excited about this new product, and the award of this patent,” says Joe Gudenburr, president. “Our team has worked very hard to make certain that we addressed the desires of our clients, and in so doing provided them with a solution that is unmatched for safety, and reliability.” 

The solution is a Class/Category 3 rated/monitored safety solution, which ensures that end users can’t operate the machine in an unsafe condition due to a failure to properly latch and secure the cylinder doors, according to the company. 

The machine was showcased at the recent Clean Show in Las Vegas and received high marks for durability, ease of use and safety from the operators in attendance, Braun says. These comments echo the feedback that has been received by those who have placed this unit into their facilities.

Braun notes that there is an additional operational and safety patent pending on this new machine as well.

Previously, the company had been awarded a patent for its Manual SafeLoad System®.
