The Isolator Bar Lockout Kit (IBL-KIT) is designed to be able to lock out nearly all shapes and sizes of isolator bars.
The IBL-KIT comes with the RED High Vis handle lockout, various sized inserts, as well as extension pieces, and will, therefore, fit most lengths, sizes and thickness of bar/handle. Also great for group isolation processes with two built-in 7mm padlock holes allowing the application of several padlocks and/or hasps.
This product is made from impact and chemically resistant ABS material.
An isolator bar lockout is a safety device designed to prevent accidental activation of an energised switch where energisation may harm workers or equipment. It might typically be used to prevent access to an internal isolator switch when an electrical cabinet door for a motor control centre is open during maintenance activities.
