Safety Edges

Our range of BBC Bircher Smart Access electrical safety edges can be used in a wide range of applications. They are used for protecting crushing and shearing points on a variety of applications including automatic doors and gates, machine doors, moving platforms and automatic guided vehicles. In the range there are profiles of different sizes, and in combination with various switching devices protect people and objects safely and reliably according to the applicable standards.

We are different to other suppliers of safety edges, as we build all safety edges to order and the size required. On our website, choose the safety edge style to suit your application and then choose the made to measure measure option. For each safety edge series, you can select the size of edge required - ensuring the overtravel is suitable for the installation - and then select the type of termination; resistor & cable or 2 cables. Once the mounting has been selected, enter the length required, click calculate and add to basket.

The safety edges are based on the tried-and-tested principle of the drawing the contact strip into the rubber profile. Even with only minimal pressure, the conductive rubber profiles are pressed against one another, and the opening pulse is forwarded to a switching device or a transmission system. The technical design ensures high reliability even in unusual applications.

As every application and installation is different you should complete a full risk assessment is required to determine the safety edges require on a case-by-case basis.
