Redwood Plastics and Rubber Launches SwitchSafe™ as the Ultimate Sawmill Safety Solution
An innovative solution that enables employers to enhance their safety protocols to decrease injuries, while saving time.

Vancouver, BC – Redwood Plastics and Rubber, a manufacturer/distributor of performance plastics and rubber, announced today a revolutionary new product for the sawmill industry; SwitchSafeTM – the ultimate sawmill safety solution.

Since its inception in 1971, Redwood Plastics and Rubber has worked directly with customers to find solutions for a variety of problems, including shock, abrasion, noise, wear, and friction. Redwood Plastics and Rubber molds machines, fabricates, and distributes a wide range of high quality, custom components.

SwitchSafeTM, a chip n’ saw (CNS) or chipping canter knife tool is specifically designed to save employees time and saves their hands from injury.

“Replacing knives on a chip n’ saw shaft can be a difficult and time-consuming job,” says Angela Rodenburgh, Vice President of Sales & Marketing of Redwood Plastics and Rubber. “Rotating the shaft to replace the extremely sharp blades that cut through gloves and hands can make it a dangerous job as well. With the SwitchSafeTM CNS Knife Tool, however, users can switch out chip n’ saw knives quickly and easily without injury.”

The SwitchSafeTM is designed with a host of beneficial features, including:

  • Comes complete with magnets on lanyards to secure the tool to the machinery frame to prevent it from falling
  • Includes an innovative “wedge” attachment to block the v-belt from turning and moving the shaft
  • High impact strength
  • Highly durable
  • Lightweight design
  • And more!
