Stainless steel safety on guard switching devices have been routine within sterile manufacturing environments, to create instant stop commands upon a guard opening. However, in certain applications, processes do not instantly stop upon opening the guard, such as a mixing blade which will continue to rotate and present a danger upon the guard opening. Fortress now offer a stainless steel safety on guard locking product which has been third party verified for hygienic design and construction as part of the 3-A Replacement Parts and System Component Qualification Certificate (RPSCQC) Program.

The Hygienic Guard Lock (HGL) is designed for controlled access in environments where caustic wash-down processes are commonplace, and bacteria growth must be prevented. The HGL has an open design to maximise access for cleaning and minimise potential bacterial growth locations. The IP67 & IP69 sealing and FDA food contact compliant Silicon Rubber interfaces between stainless steel component, have been carefully selected with open plant cleaning and CIP (clean-in-place) in mind.
