This protected utility model was developed by our technicians to significantly ensure and increase the safety of paternosters.
In retail areas safety is a very important aspect. No gear-wheels, which would constitute a source of danger, are used with SIKU® in the lower section of the paternosters.
Unlike conventional vertical paternosters, in which open gear-wheels are used at the bottom, with SIKU® the chains are positively steered in a continous guide of synthetic hard material. Thus the risk of injuries is minimized. In additon a falling out of the roll material during a chain crack is also prevented.
Have a look at what happens with and without SIKU®. Tested by TÜV (German technical QC authority).
