Castell locks in the safety

Castell Safety International has developed a robust X-type key exchange unit that aims to minimise potential food traps. The exchange unit is designed to be both ergonomic and durable, with a fully welded enclosure offering increased rigidity.


Newly designed locks, relocated to be rear-mounted, mean the unit has no visible fixing holes, so that opportunities for dirt or food to be trapped are reduced, making it suitable for environments such as the food and beverage industries.


When designing the exchange unit, Castell's engineers reviewed the enclosure colour and the new one was chosen to match the standard colour for electrical enclosures.


The new unit is fully compatible with previous FS lock types and has identical dimensions to Castell's X-type exchange unit, allowing it to be retrofitted to existing interlocking systems.
