Gates Lift Systems Safety Policy

Do not use Gates belts, pulleys or sprockets in applications that depend solely upon the belt to raise/lower, support or sustain a mass without an independent safety backup system.  For applications requiring special "Lift" or "Proof" type chains with minimum tensile strength or certified/test tensile strength requirements, be advised that because Gates belts have different drive design procedures from metal chains, the tensile strength of a belt when compared to the tensile strength of a chain should only be part of the design process.  Diligent analysis with the customer's participation should be used when considering any such application.

For any additional questions feel free to look through our other blog topics or contact us at ptpasupport@gates.com or 303-744-5800.
