Fortress Interlocks has unveiled tGard, described as a new approach to controlling access to hazardous machinery and equipment.
The compact, metal-bodied safety system enables the configuration of safety products such as electrical safety gate switches (with or without guard locking), mechanical trapped key interlocks and electrical operator controls, either as separate devices or integrated into one device.
Fortress Interlocks offers tGard as a customised product, as standard. Features include safety switches (solenoid and non-solenoid), personnel keys, emergency release, push buttons, estops, indicator lamps and a choice of operating handles for both hinged and sliding guard doors. These elements are selected and then assembled into a housing, suitable for mounting onto machine guarding.
tGard can be mounted directly onto a flat surface, doors or extruded aluminium profiles without the need for mounting plates or brackets. It is IP65 as standard and has been designed to be fully compliant with the new machinery safety standards.
