The only ex-proof fork with wear indicator
According to EN 1755 forks in explosion-protected areas need to be renewed as soon as soon as the cladding thickness drops below 1 mm.
As it was not previously possible to determine the wear limit visibly, regular or daily measurement was necessary. However, these examinations were time-consuming and required special tools and expertise. This is the essential benefit of DuplEx claddings.
The fork is cladded using 2 different materials:
1 mm inner cladding on the underside of fork + 4 mm outer cladding of the complete fork blade
By using materials of different colours (brass and stainless steel), wear can be immediately determined at a glance:
A real plus in terms of safety and comfort.
