New amGard Pro heavy-duty safety gate switch interlocksFortress Interlocks is launching the amGard Pro heavy-duty safety gate switch interlocks, which have been developed from the successful amGard family of safety gate switch interlocks.

amGard Pro builds on the recognised modularity and robust design of the existing amGard range but with added features and benefits identified by market feedback. Some added features include forward and backward compatibility, stainless steel heads, emergency release options, anti-vibration parts and non-contact technology. 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.

Tony Baggott, Sales & Marketing Director at Fortress Interlocks, comments: “We have revamped the amGard range as part of a long term programme to ensure our products remain at the forefront of industrial interlock technology. amGard Pro builds on the success of amGard, and the new developments keep pace with changing technology while ensuring compliance with developing global standards. amGard Pro is the ideal safety interlock for safeguarding plant and personnel in heavy duty environments.”

The new amGard Pro heavy-duty safety gate switch interlocks range is now available. For more information, go to
