Troax is a well-known name within machine guarding and machine safety for the production industry in many parts of the world. The key is intelligent details which can be combined with new and old modules in thoroughly tested systems.
Step by step, we are developing the foundation of our systems: our mesh panels. In our Test Center tests are carried out to put theoretical calculations to the test, using energies of up to 2,500 joules. If an accident were to happen at your facility, you should know that the panels are strong enough to keep both people and machinery safe. Every single weld can withstand a heavy blow and that makes all the difference.
IN COMPLIANCE WITH THE MACHINERY DIRECTIVE
Troax machine guarding and machine safety products meet all the requirements set in the European Machinery Directive, 2006/42/EC. Your installation should meet these requirements today as well as in the future, even if you supplement or extend your machine guarding system with new mesh panels, doors or locks.
Troax Test Center
Our research and development department is working continuously to optimize both products and system solutions. Panels, posts and brackets are tested in accordance with the recommendations regarding impact testing in Annex C in the revised standard ISO 14120. The tests are conducted by dropping weights on to the protection, weights equivalent to forces of 309 joules all the way up to 2,000 joules. For example, an impact of 1,600 joules is equivalent to 100 kg hitting the protection at 20 km/h.
All systems and panels are tested. The results can be found in our test reports which show the type of panel, post and bracket tested. The product information shows the amount of force that the product has been subject to and how much energy it can withstand.
