Product News: Spotlight on Fortress Safety Interlocks!

Rotalec is proud to announce that Fortress’ mGard range of safety interlocks has achieved approval from TÜV SÜD*, the leading international Notified Body for the certification of safety components. Fortress is the only trapped-key manufacturer to carry independent third party approval on its trapped-key range of interlocks, for use up to SIL3/PLe, reinforcing its position as market leader.

TÜV SÜD has certified that the mGard range meets the interlocking requirements of the latest European safety standards, so customers can install mGard with peace of mind.

Trapped-key interlocking is an ideal method of safeguarding machinery or potentially dangerous areas. The mGard range has a fail-safe design, undergoing an extensive FMEA (Failure Modes Effects Analysis) during its design stage, with over 100 different, rigorous safety tests.

Fortress’ mGard range of robust mechanical trapped-key products is a completely modular system: individual modules can simply be added or removed depending on the application. The mGard range is ideal for a wide range of industries, such as food and drink manufacturing, for wash-down, or for explosion-proof applications and other high-risk applications, resulting in an extremely cost-effective and flexible safeguarding solution for a wide industrial audience.
