Safety edges, safe bump strips are employed to guard closing edges at possible crushing or shearing points. They are used in machines and handling facilities to protect people and equipment.
GE series safety contact edges are world-wide patented, combine German technique with new as well as proved materials to one-piece extruded two chamber profiles.
Inside the safety contact edge is the in-extruded switching unit, which consists of two conductive switching surfaces on the inside and a high-isolating outer material. In each of this conductive elastomer there is a copper wire; that permits low-resistance evaluation in larger length of the safety contact edges. The switching unit is protected by the outside covering chamber against damages.
The molded plugs ensure a permanent contacting of the conductive layers of the switching unit. For additional water protection, the contacted SKL is also sealed with end caps using a special permanently elastic glue to cover any gaps. To secure it, the SKL is pressed into the aluminum C profile. As a result of the modular design and simple packaging of the GE series, assembly time in the case of self-assembly is reduced to a minimum. SKL’s can also be manufactured in individual lengths and repairs carried out on site.
