Safety Contact Strips enhance moving parts safety.

March 11, 2014

Offered in EPDM for resistance to ozone and weathering, SGE-88 and SGE-1510 suit applications subject to aggressive chemicals exposure. IP65-rated products feature molded end caps and cables that plug directly into safety contact, which is co-extruded as integral part of profile. Outer covering of non-conductive rubber which houses and protects safety contact, allows actuation angles up to 90°. Safety edges can be fixed to edge of moving part where risk of crushing or shearing hazard exists. Read More
