Dead man's brake
The VARIOfit® dead man’s brake provides a further braking system. The design is typically VARIOfit®: high quality, smooth and user-friendly. The design was chosen so that the Bowden cable is integrated in the pushbar and all parts of the brake system are inside the truck or trolley contours. As a result, there are no protruding parts that could interfere with the operator when using the truck or trolley. The truck or trolley is always braked and secured against rolling away unintentionally until the pushbar is depressed and the dead man’s brake is thus released. On releasing the pushbar, the dead man’s brake is activated automatically and the truck or trolley is braked safely again. The additional handle beneath the pushbar allows an ergonomic movement of the trucks when the brake is released.
