Seatbelts for forklifts, mining, quarrying, construction, earthmoving, forestry and agriculture.
Available in 2" 50mm and 3" 75mm models.
Springbelt-Flex protects both employees and employers.

Building on the revolutionary Springbelt concept we have developed the Springbelt-Flex as a comfortable, easy to use industrial seatbelt by introducing a fully functional, ISO9001 compliant ALR, (Automatically Locking Retractor), all designed and developed in Australia.

Ensuring that your employees wear a correctly fastened seatbelt is most probably one of the most significant changes you, as an employer, can make to any safety program involving forklift truck or mobile plant in a short period of time. Safety is the legal responsibility of the employer.

Designed for use on forklifts, mobile plant and agricultural equipment Springbelt-Flex is a restraint device crash tested to 50kph that sits over the operators lap like a protective halo.

Fitting a Springbelt-Flex is a matter of life and death

Whether itís because they canít be bothered, find them unnecessary or they wrongly think itís safer to try and jump free in an emergency, the fact is that many operators donít fasten their seat belts, often with tragic results.

Thatís why we felt compelled to develop a more practical alternative. Itís called the Springbelt-Flex, because as you can see, it springs up when unbuckled making it a real nuisance and uncomfortable to operate the machine or mobile plant.

Then when itís buckled, it holds the operator firmly, comfortably and safely in his seat. A universal fitting kit makes it easy to install Springbelt-Flex in all common types of mobile machinery.

1.   A real nuisance when unbuckled 
2.   Comfortable and safe when buckled 
3.   Easy to install 
4.   Fits all common types of mobile machinery 
5.   Can also be fitted with ignition lock-out features 

Why a Springbelt and not a normal seatbelt?  Click here to view why...

A normal seatbelt if correctly fastened will lock a drivers hips in a forward position, which is comfortable for operators travelling forward however a forklift operator in particular will spend approximately half his time travelling in reverse and the other half in a forward direction.

Springbelt-Flex allows the operators the freedom of movement they require while at the same time keeping them safely restrained in the vehicle in the event of an accident.

Springbelt-Flex springs up when unbuckled

 We already have seat belts on our equipment. 
If operators are not wearing the belts provided and this cannot be enforced then what good are the belts when an accident occurs?

If there is an incident where the driver expects a tip over is going to occur Springbelt-Flex will keep the driver inside the cabin, where statistics prove there is a greater chance of surviving.

Springbelt-Flex can be locked into a position so that it springs erect and becomes a nuisance to the operator if he is not wearing it while positioned in the drivers seat.

Springbelt-Flex will overcome the major objections from drivers that it is too uncomfortable to wear their safety belts while performing their duties in a expedient manner.

The bottom line where seat belts are concerned...

World-wide, forklift tip-overs and roll-overs account for about 25 percent of all serious forklift related injuries.

Safety is the legal responsibility of the employer. 

The employer is liable for inadequate safety.

Springbelt-Flex fits all common types of mobile machinery and on average would take less that 30 minutes to install and be immediately operational.

ISO-6683 is the Australian Standard for aftermarket replacement seat belts and will conform with any vehicle.

 

 

Springbelt-Flex complies International Standards ISO-6683, SAE-J386 and FMVSS-302 for the market in the USA.

Springbelt-Flex can be used with all industrial vehicles, mining and earth moving plant as well as agricultural vehicles such as tractors or harvesters.

Optional extras are electrically switching buckles.
This allows management to perform LOCKOUT functions on the vehicle.

If the
Springbelt-Flex is wired into the vehicles ignition the driver will not be able to start the vehicle until he has his seatbelt correctly fastened.
If the electronic transmission is locked-out,  forward / reverse gears are denied to the driver UNTIL he / she   fasten their belt in the correct manner.

Electronic transmissions are a common feature on most industrial vehicles and plant manufactured in the last 15 years.

Available in 50mm HI-VISIBILITY webbing or in a 75mm black webbing version the Springbelt-Flex  will accommodate the largest of drivers in comfort and safety.
