Colson’s 4 Series Stainless Steel Brake has been expressly designed for the most demanding and corrosive manufacturing environments and material handling challenges.

“Once again, we have been able to engineer a solution to meet the demands of our customers,” said Brian Crain, product manager for Colson. “This new Top Lock, stainless steel brake series will withstand the demands of today’s harshest applications.”

Tested at Colson’s own world-class engineering lab, the 4 Series Stainless Steel Top Lock Brake withstands corrosion, acidic, chemical and solvent solutions, steam, and salt-spray exposures.

The polished stainless steel brakes can easily service even the toughest industrial applications including, food handling centers such as meat, fish, and poultry processing sites; dairies; hospitals, and all manner of wash down, and testing and laboratory venues.
