The design of the VG Compact is a hybrid of the VG-4 and VG-5 safety gears. The linkage mechanism from the VG-5 has been fitted into a VG-4 sized frame. The brake can be fitted with either of the spring stacks from the VG-5. One spring stack is used for a safety gear acting in the “down” direction and the other when the safety gear is inverted acts as an “upward acting brake”.
- Bolted construction involving no welding
- Reduced weight of 7.3KG
- Anodised silver for a hardwearing,long lasting finish
- Tried and tested mechanics
With its reduced weight the safety gear is easy to install as it can be managed by a single engineer. Its reduced dimensions also make it ideal for shallow pit depths which have in the past caused problems.
