During dramatic impact test on the Fortress Interlocks amGardpro interlock fitted to a Troax St30 mesh door, during which the mesh door and interlock were subjected to a powerful impact of 1600 joule, the door was slightly deformed by the impact but no parts came loose and it was held firmly in place by the interlock. The interlock was also fully functional after the test.
Fortress and Troax recently combined forces to create a new perimeter guarding system to protect workers from dangerous machinery. By utilising a unique new bracket which fits Fortress interlocks to Troax perimeter guarding panels and gates, it enables the safeguarding of virtually any machinery installation.
