Energy source lockout labelling equipment Maintenance and repair of electrical equipment requires all power sources to be isolated to prevent accidents. The Cirlock Lockout ID energy source lockout labelling system simplifies the process of matching all energy sources to plants and machinery. The system contains pre-printed colour-coded and numbered (one to 100) adhesive labels for eight different types of energy for placement on switches and valves, together with matching labels and a chart for placement on machinery and equipment. A lockout labelling starter kit also enables companies to identify and label energy sources correctly.

These include large valves, steering wheels on vehicles and a number of circuit breakers or fuse holders. The devices are available with 1m or 2m cables as standard, and with a steel wire cable or a plastic cable for applications where metal cannot be used such as electrical cabinets. Additional cables can be supplied in lengths of 6m or 15m, making these devices suitable for locking out multiple points with one lock. Each device accommodates up to four padlocks.
