The potential hazards emanating from shear and pinch edges in machinery and plant construction facilities are many and various.
Typically dangerous areas are lifting tables and work platforms, automatically operated doors at workstations or protective hoods on presses and punches.
In many cases the closing edge involved is not straight, but follows the contour of the machine. Gelbau uses prefabricated corner connectors with specified angular dimensions or tailor-made custom connectors to solve this problem. Therefore, one-part, corner-switching solutions can be easily created.
Besides the standard EPDM material, the safety switching strips are also available in highly durable and resistant NBR. These characteristics, together with the products’ high quality and sensitive switching capabilities, have convinced many prestigious manufacturers to use Gelbau’s safety switching strips in series production.
