Bottom Slat Safety Transmitter
Works in conjunction with bottom rubber sensor and guide magnets, constantly monitoring the door's movements, identifying problems, adhering to all necessary health and safety codes. If there is a person or object blocking the descent of the roller door at any point, then the door will touch that object, stop and immediately retract a little. This is a mandatory requirement in the UK and complies with BSEN 12453-Safety in use of power operated doors. We are fully compliant with this requirement and conform to all the latest Product Performance Standards.
The use of a photo electric cell as the only safeguarding measure (laser beam reading across the garage opening at a height of approx 400mm) would prevent CE marking and would therefore not fulfill legal requirements under the “Machinery Directive.
