  • Causa
    The kwiktrak gate stopper may fail and allow the ceiling lift to pass through to the end of the track and fall to the floor.
  • Acción
    Arjo Inc. USA sent recall letters to the direct accounts on 10/30/06, informing them that if the ceiling lift is moved too fast or too forcefully into a closed gate, the gate stopper can be damaged, causing its function to fail. One consequence can be that the gate may remain open, allowing the ceiling lift to pass through to the end of the track. The letters requested the customer to visually inspect their Kwiktrak Gate installation used with their Maxisky-600 Ceiling Lift to determine if there are any signs of impact or burr marks on the closed gate stopper. Illustrations of a damaged and normal gate stopper were included. The customers were requested to stop use of the Kwiktrak track system if any signs of impact or burr marks are found, and contact the Arjo Quality Department at 1-800-323-1245, ext. 6140 for special instructions. If no signs of damage were found, the customers were reminded to make sure that they manually drive the ceiling lift in a gentler manner to prevent damage to the gate stopper, making sure that all personnel using the ceiling lifts are properly trained. The accounts were informed that Arjo personnel will contact them in the next few weeks to install an improved system that will eliminate the risks of failure.
