About 4B

About 4B Australia

4B Australia was founded in 2011 as a subsidiary of 4B Braime, an international market leader in the field of bucket elevator and conveyor components and electronic monitoring equipment.

4B Australia's mother company, 4B Braime, looks back on a 130 year history and has been a pioneer of the material handling industry, introducing the first seamless steel elevator bucket back in 1909. 4B Braime's material handling division has led the field in elevator bucket design and manufacture by supplying the highest quality components. 4B's electronic division specializes in level controls, electric sensors and safety control systems that prevent costly downtime and reduce the risks of explosions in hazardous areas.

The 4B Group

4B has one of the world’s largest range of bucket elevator components. A leader in elevator bucket and bolt design and manufacturing, 4B also supplies the highest quality elevator belting and offers its own range of drop forged conveyor chains, suitable for the toughest applications.

4B’s electronic division specializes in level controls, electric sensors and safety control systeems that mitigate the risk of explosions in hazardous areas. With an extensive range of ATEX/IECEx/CSA-approved hazard monitoring systems, misalignment switches, bearing temperature monitors and level indicators, 4B can offer anything from a replacement sensor to a fully integrated hazard monitoring system that can be operated either as a stand-alone system or connected to a PLC or 4B’s cloud-based Hazardmon system.

4B has always been known for the quality of their engineering support, which in turn is based on research and ongoing product testing. 4B offer their customers a Free Design Service, whether to trouble shoot an existing problem, increase the capacity of an existing machine, or assist in the detailed design of new equipment. We feel that our additional services are just as important as our products themselves. 

A subsidiary of The Braime Group, one of the largest suppliers of material handling components in the world, 4B looks back on more than 130 years of experience. With subsidiaries in Europe, America, Asia and Australia and a worldwide network of distributors, 4B can provide you with practical solutions for all applications at any location.

The 4B Braime Group - 130 Years of Engineering Excellence

The 4B Braime Group, a British PLC listed on the London Stock Exchange, has just celebrated its 130th anniversary this year. The company has been a pioneer of the material handling industry, introducing the first pressed seamless steel elevator bucket back in 1909 and since then leading the field in elevator bucket design. Innovation has always been at the heart of the group's ethos, and maintaining their tradition of making better products by Engineering Design, 4B has contributed many innovative products and solutions to the material handling industry, including: the Starco elevator bucket (the world’s first low profile elevator bucket using centrifugal discharge on a parabolic elevator head which revolutionized the way bucket elevators work until today), the Bolt ‘n’ Go chain system (a revolutionary assembly method for drop forged chains using bolt-on flights instead of welding), the Watchdog Elite bucket elevator monitoring system (the world's first hazard monitoring system that could monitor a complete bucket elevator or conveyor system), and most recently Hazardmon, a cloud-based hard monitoring solution.

The 4B group is committed to keep up its investment in innovation and looks forward to a bright future.

17. 4B Trademarks and Registered Trademarks

When referencing 4B trademarks and registered trademarks, always include the proper notation after the name and logo. (® for Registered Trademarks and ™ for Trademarks) Failure to do so may dilute our trademark protection. In text it is only necessary to annotate the first instance of the trademark in a given document or piece. After the first instance you may drop the ® or ™ after the word. When using logos, always include the ® or ™ in every instance. Logos may only be used under license from 4B.

The trademarks, logos, service marks and trade names (collectively the "Trademarks") displayed on 4B websites or on content available through 4B websites are registered and unregistered Trademarks of 4B and others and may not be used in connection with products and/or services that are not related to, associated with, or sponsored by their rights holders that are likely to cause customer confusion, or in any manner that disparages or discredits their rights holders. All Trademarks not owned by 4B that appear on the website or on or through the website's services, if any, are the property of their respective owners. Nothing contained on 4B websites should be construed as granting, by implication, estoppel, or otherwise, any license or right to use any Trademark displayed on the website without the written permission of 4B or the third party that may own the applicable Trademark. Your misuse of the Trademarks displayed on the website or on or through any of the website's services is strictly prohibited.

19. Global Availability

Information 4B publishes on the World Wide Web may contain references or cross references to 4B products, programs and services that are not announced or available in your country. Such references do not imply that 4B intends to announce or make available such products, programs, or services in your country. Please consult your local 4B business contact for information regarding the products, programs, and services that may be available to you.
 

20. Indemnification

You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless the 4B Parties from and against any and all claims, liabilities, damages, losses, costs, expenses, or fees (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) that such parties may incur as a result of or arising from your (or anyone using your account’s) violation of these Terms. 4B reserves the right to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you and, in such case, you agree to cooperate with 4B’s defense of such claim.
 

21. General 

These terms, together with any additional terms to which you agree when using particular elements of the 4B websites, constitute the entire and exclusive and final statement of the agreement between you and 4B with respect to the subject matter hereof, superseding any prior agreements or negotiations between you and 4B with respect to such subject matter. The 4B Parties are third party beneficiaries with respect to the provisions in these terms that reference them. The failure of 4B to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of these terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, you nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the intentions of 4B and you as reflected in the provision, and that the other provisions of these terms remain in full force and effect. The section titles in these terms are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. These terms shall remain in full force and effect notwithstanding any termination of your use of the 4B websites. These terms will be interpreted without application of any strict construction in favor of or against you or 4B. These terms, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by 4B without restriction.
 

22. Modifications to these Terms

4B may, in its sole and absolute discretion, change these terms from time to time. 4B will post notice of such changes on the applicable Site. If you object to any such changes, your sole recourse shall be to cease using the 4B websites. Continued use of the 4B websites following notice of any such changes shall indicate your acknowledgement of such changes and agreement to be bound by the terms and conditions of such changes. Certain provisions of these terms may be superseded by expressly-designated legal notices or terms located on particular pages of the 4B websites and, in such circumstances, the expressly-designated legal notice or term shall be deemed to be incorporated into these terms and to supersede the provision(s) of these terms that are designated as being superseded.
