Machine guarding

Why machine guarding?

Machine fencing offers maximum safety and complies with the latest Machinery Directive.

Troax mesh wall systems are modular and can, with the use of standard products, be customised to your demands. A modular installation will shorten the delivery time and ensures a good price-quality ratio. It is also possible to have your safety fencing installed by USP and have it fitted with the safety components you desire.

Professional installation

In case you do not have time to assemble the fencing yourself, we will be happy to offer you our assembly service.

Our experienced technicians will visit you on a day of your choice and place the shielding according to the installation drawing. Minor adjustments can be carried out by our technicians (if sufficient material is available).

Doors are built up and aligned, posts will be firmly anchored and, if you have also chosen our Safe Locks or Fortress Interlocks safety switches with mounting brackets, then these will be placed on the doors directly, by our technicians.

Panels of mesh, sheet metal and polycarbonate

Panels are available in different versions; from the mesh panels, ST20 and ST30 that require a safe distance of at least 120mm, to the PC panel that provides a good view on the area and hat can be positioned close to the installation.

There is also the ST full sheet panel that meets the requirements regarding protection against weld spatters, dust and liquids. This panel can also be placed close near the machine.

In case of outdoor installation or usage in wet environments, all Troax parts can be hot-dip galvanised.

Mounting brackets for the fast mounting of door switches

Use the official Troax mounting brackets for the assembly of all types of Fortress Interlocks safety switches and interlocks.

The mounting kit ensures a robust and ergonomic mounting of door switches on all Troax door types. As a result, alignment of these door locks will never again be a problem.

The kit is delivered directly ex-factory with your machine guarding and, if you have chosen for our assembly service, placed directly on the door.

Unique Safety Products also supplies mounting plates for Axelent machine guarding

SafeLock universal locking system for doors

Designed as an addition to safety guards and safety switches, the Safe Lock provides increased reliability and durability.

The Troax Safe Lock system can be placed on any door type and can be combined with a wide range of safety switches, including Fortress Interlocks, Mechan Controls, Euchner, Schmersal, Telemecanique and Pilz.

The robust casing adds to a longer lifespan of your safety door components and offers a clear identification point.

Padlock holes

The SafeLock comes with a padlock adapter. A maximum of 3 padlocks can be placed on the SafeLock during maintenance or to prevent containment.

As long as the padlocks are applied, the door cannot be closed or locked.

Sustainable solution

The SafeLock ensures a longer life for your safety switches. Because the doorstop takes place on the SafeLock, the tongue/actuator of the safety switch is protected.

The protective cover where the switch is placed behind is placed to prevent collision damage.

PLd or PLe

The SafeLock is also available with a standard safety switch

  • SafeLock PLd: Low- medium risk environments
  • SafeLock PLe: High risk environments
