Fortress Interlocks' new eGard system for machinery access and control includes an ergonomic, easy-fit handle and actuator unit. Designed for both hinged and sliding doors, like the rest of eGard system it can be installed on machinery guarding in minutes without the need for additional brackets. The handle can also be used with an eGard head unit as a simple and easy-fit latching door handle.
The handle provides a huge saving in terms of cost and time of design and fabrication for OEM manufacturers, machinery guarding suppliers and end users. Installing gate switches and control units on machinery guarding can be costly and time intensive, often requiring measuring, drilling, and the design and fabrication of brackets and door handles.
The eGard system and handle mount simply on extruded aluminium (which many machine guards are manufactured from). No drilling or brackets are required. The handle has only two fixings and is simple to align and attach. It connects using standard M5 screws which fit the spring-loaded T-nuts supplied with the extruded aluminium. It is made from glass reinforced PBT providing exceptional toughness and durability.
