Customised Safety

tGard's unique design allows the configuration of medium-duty safety interlock switches, trapped key interlocks and machine control stations that are all housed in a slender, metal body to create a simple and robust automation safety system. 

Completely customisable access and control systems

Virtually all machinery safety applications require a unique approach to safeguarding hazardous machine functions as there are certain nuances that are only relevant to specific machines or other automated equipment. So automation safety is highly reliant upon flexible safety devices that cater to these individual requirements. 

As a result, tGard is a range of completely customisable safety interlock switches and machine control devices, allowing for each unit to be tailored to address all of your individual safety concerns. With the tGard range you benefit from bespoke safety solutions at a competitive price point. 

Installation also becomes easier as every unit has a maximum of four fixing points to mount your safety device to your machine's guard doors without the need for mounting plates. To simplify the installation further, all configurations can come with pre-wired connectors so you have the ability to create true 'plug-and-play' safety systems. 

The range boasts an unrivaled choice of safety and control elements such as;

  • Safety interlock swicthes with/without guard locking
  • Internal escape release functionality 
  • Illuminated and non-illuminated push buttons 
  • Various E-stops with multiple reset options 
  • Knob and key-operated selector switches
  • Indicator Lamps
  • Pre-wired connectors and field-wireable terminal bases
  • AS-i Safe connectivity 

Customisable Safety as Standard

Total Access and Control

tGard offers a customised safety solution as standard, providing you with a truly innovative approach to controlling access to dangerous machinery and hazardous equipment, 

Unlike all of the safety interlocks that Fortress offer, the tGard range is only suitable for use in applications up to PLd, in accordance with EN ISO 13849-1. As always, all safety configurations have been independently certified by TUV SUD.
