When do we need to use a door with safety switch instead of a removable panel?

 

Guard fencing and stationary machine housings are the most reliable safeguards offering protection from mechanical hazards such as crushing, shearing, and entanglement.

 

However, they need to be removed for maintenance work and troubleshooting. In some applications machine guards may even need to be opened frequently to make adjustments during operation or to insert parts. In such cases, standards require using a movable guard (door) with interlocking, guard locking or a trapped key. What are the rules? And what is the right solution for your application?

There are numerous ways of controlling access to hazardous areas. Choose what is best for your application, based on careful risk assessment.

We will sort it out!
