Fortress Develops Modern amGard Pro Range of Heavy Duty Interlocks



New features create strongest line of safety interlocks to date



Erlanger, K.Y. – Industrial safety specialist Fortress Interlocks has significantly developed its amGard range of heavy duty, safety gate switch interlocks to create amGard Pro. This new line keeps pace with changing technology while ensuring compliance with developing global standards to safeguard plant and personnel in heavy duty environments.



amGard Pro builds on the modularity and robust design of the existing amGard range, adding features identified by market feedback. The new equipment is forward and backward compatible to integrate with existing installed interlocks. Emergency release options further increase plant safety, while a non-contact feature provides redundancy. With corrosion-resistant stainless steel heads and anti-vibration parts, the amGard Pro withstands even rough operating environments.



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. amGard Pro has been tested to withstand up to 10KN retention force, making it Fortress’ strongest yet.
