Automatic personnel protection for conveyors and other hazardous machinery.
Safetech was started in 1986 to develop automatic devices to prevent accidents on conveyors and other hazardous machinery. Traditional safety measures include emergency stop buttons, pull cords and video monitors. But all of these devices depend on the person in danger being conscious and able to stop the conveyor, or rely on the intervention of other people. Safetech protects workers, even if no-one else sees what happens.
Safetech products are suitable for protecting workers in a wide range of processes, including all recycling applications, paper & board mills, plastic and metal handling, and many other manufacturing and engineering functions. Safetech is protecting lives on hundreds of sites in the UK, and all over the world.
Our latest product is Guardian, which meets and exceeds current safety legislation standards. It’s designed around state of the art intelligent technology, optimising performance and focusing detection where it’s required. A single Guardian system can protect several conveyors, affording considerable cost savings.
Anyone working near the hazardous area wears a Guardian detector belt. These are light, comfortable and easy to wear, constructed to withstand harsh industrial environments and visually distinctive to help safety enforcement. If someone wearing a detector belt enters the hazardous area, a signal is instantly sent to the Guardian Control System, which sounds an alarm and immediately activates the emergency stop procedure.
We firmly believe that no other system available today offers comprehensive automatic protection like Safetech.
