KWS Manufacturing

Safety Bolts

Safety is a primary concern for all employers, especially in manufacturing facilities. Bulk material handling equipment with rotating components present risk of injury to workers. Every person working in a manufacturing environment must be trained in safe practices by their employer. Even with safety training, there is still a chance for an accident to occur. KWS provides solutions to minimize risk of injury with the use of safety bolts for conveyor covers.

With over 45 years’ experience in the bulk material handling industry, KWS is at the forefront of safe equipment design. KWS safety bolts satisfy the requirements of both OSHA and MSHA (Mine Safety & Health Administration). While standard cover bolts require a tool to remove, KWS safety bolts require a specific tool for access by only trained maintenance personnel.

Features & Benefits – Safety Bolts

KWS Safety Bolt Has Special Head That Requires Special Tool for Removal


Variety of Construction Materials: KWS safety bolts are provided in either zinc plated carbon steel or 18-8 stainless steel.

Universal Implementation: Screw clamps are a common method of fixing a conveyor cover in place but allow for the cover to be easily removed. KWS provides safety bolts even on assembled conveyors utilizing screw clamps.


Efficient Installation: Two KWS safety bolts are installed on every cover in opposite corners to prevent access to moving components. Locating the safety bolts on opposite corners maximizes the safety benefit without delaying access to the equipment by trained maintenance personnel.

Safe Operation: KWS safety bolts require a specific tool for removal, restricting access to only trained maintenance personnel. KWS ships the special tools with each assembled conveyor, enclosed in a packet with additional safety and operation information.
