Braun Receives Safety Patent


SYRACUSE, NY — Braun recently received a patent for their Manual SafeLoad System® which is its second safety solution patent. The Manual SafeLoad was designed to support the loading of washers in a manual wash aisle operating environment. This system removes the potential for serious injury to the operator from pushing bags into a moving washer cylinder.

“Laundry operators and suppliers are working together to improve wash floor safety,” says Braun President Joe Gudenburr. We take safety very seriously, and have imbedded it into the design and operational criteria for all of our products.”
