Improved handrail design redefines underground safety


Bend-tech offers Sandvik safety handrails to suit a wide range of loader and truck models.

Bend-tech’s handrails are designed to ensure fall protection and enhanced safety for personnel during maintenance, and are built to withstand the harshest underground mining environments.

Built with Bend-tech’s patented single action stainless steel hinge system, handrails can easily be folded up during maintenance and down during operation, prolonging the integrity of the handrails and corrosion resistance.

Bend-tech offer direct original equipment manufacturer (OEM) replacement handrails which also include a number of design enhancements, such as the kick-hinge system and additional kick plates which make maintenance and use of the handrails safer and easier.

In addition, Bend-tech also offer custom designed handrails which can be retrofitted to the machine to increase safety and reduce handrail damage. This offering is best showcased in our TH663 low-folding handrail set.

Handrail features include:

  • Heavy wall steel pipe build
  • Patented single action stainless steel hinge system for superior safety compliance and corrosion resistance
  • Hi-spec surface treatment finish in Sandvik green over a primary zinc coating for enhanced protection
  • Designed and built to withstand the harshest underground mining environments
  • Provides complete safety when working at height
