ASO Safety Edges

Safety contact edges are employed to guard closing edges at possible crushing or shearing points.

They are used in gates, machines and handling facilities to protect people and equipment. If you are unsure or want more details on our safety edges, do not hesitate to contact us.

Sliding Gate Safety Edges

Scenario One example

SCENARIO 1

In this scenario we see a typical barred sliding gate moving through a stationary frame where the motor and control electronics are housed. To protect this design we require safety edges to be installed on the leading, closing & opening edges (up to a height of 2.5 Metres where required).

In addition to protect against shearing in the stationary frame we require safety edges to be installed on both sides of the frame (and in both opening & closing directions). Additional edges may be required to protect at the motor case or other shearing points depending on the design of the gate.

Scenario Two example

SCENARIO 2

In this scenario we have a sliding gate that has been finger meshed, boarded or in-filled to prevent shearing as the gate passes through the stationary frame. The mesh in-fill used must be fine enough to prevent trapping of body parts (30mm x 30mm) and the gap between the gate itself and the frame as it passes through must be less than 100mm to comply with regulations.

To protect this design we require safety edges to be installed on the leading closing & opening edges (up to a height of 2.5M where required). Additional edges may be required to protect at the motor case or other shearing points depending on the design of the gate.

Scenario Three example

SCENARIO 3

In this scenario we see a typical barred sliding gate moving through a stationary frame behind a wall. To protect this design we require safety edges to be installed on the leading closing & opening edges (upto a height of 2.5M where required). In addition to protect against shearing on the stationary frame we require safety edges to be installed on both sides of the frame (and in both opening & closing directions).

In addition we require a safety edge to be installed on the outside wall to prevent shearing in the closing direction. Additional edges may be required to protect at the motor case or other shearing points depending
on the design of the gate.

Swing gates may also need safety edges. For more details on our safety systems and quote on prices, please call us on 01202 717191 or email us.
