  • Action
    Arjo Inc. USA sent Urgent Field Safety Notice letters dated 8/1/08 to the direct accounts on 8/1/08, informing them that there is a remote possibility that the gate system could malfunction. The result of this malfunction is that the gate locks could open even though the corresponding tracks are not properly aligned. This could result in the lift/cassette falling off the track system, possibly resulting in serious personal injuries and or property damage. The letters requested the customer to immediately implement special operating instructions in their facility to ensure great care is used when the gate system is operated. All personnel must be made aware that the tracks need to be properly aligned before using the gate. Illustrations of an unaligned gate system with an open lock and properly aligned tracks and gate system with open locks were included. Any questions the customers may have were directed to the Arjo Quality Department at 1-800-323-1245, ext. 6125. The accounts were informed that Arjo personnel will contact them in September 2008 to install a permanent add-on improvement to prevent the occurrence of a malfunction.
