Fortress improves its heavy duty interlocks

Fortress improves its heavy duty interlocks Industrial safety specialist Fortress Interlocks reports that it has significantly developed its amGard range of heavy duty, safety gate switch interlocks to create amGard Pro.

The amGard Pro range builds on the recognised modularity and robust design of the existing amGard range but with added features and benefits identified by market feedback. Some added features include forward and backward compatibility, stainless steel heads, emergency release options, anti-vibration parts and non-contact technology.

The Pro range integrates modern technology to deliver new control functionality but still offers the option for traditional lockout retro-fitting, creating a variety of new configurations not previously available. The amGard Pro has been tested to withstand up to 10KN retention force, making it Fortress' strongest yet.

Tony Baggott, sales and marketing director at Fortress Interlocks, comments: "We have revamped the amGard range as part of a long term programme to ensure our products remain at the forefront of industrial interlock technology. The amGard Pro builds on the success of amGard, and the new developments keep pace with changing technology while ensuring compliance with developing global standards. The amGard Pro is the ideal safety interlock for safeguarding plant and personnel in heavy duty environments."
