Customisable access control
08 November 2014
tGard from Fortress Interlocks offers a new approach to controlling access to hazardous machinery and equipment.
The compact, metal-bodied safety system enables the configuration of various safety products – including 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. It is defined by a range of tGard elements, including 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 simply selected and then assembled into a robust housing, suitable for mounting onto machine guarding, providing the user with an exact configuration specific to the application.
