The new tGard range from Fortress Interlocks is a novel approach to controlling access to hazardous machinery and equipment. The compact, metal-bodied safety system enables the custom configuration of multiple safety products, including electrical safety gate switches, mechanical trapped key interlocks and electrical operator controls, for optimum safety. TGard systems can either be configured as separate devices or integrated into one device, and are wholly customized to the needs of the end user. The range of tGard components includes safety switches (solenoid and non-solenoid), personnel keys, emergency release, push buttons, e-stops, indicator lamps and a choice of operating handles for both hinged and sliding guard doors. The required elements are user selected and then assembled into a robust housing, resulting in an exact configuration specific to the user’s application.
