Safety mats, edges and bumpers from ASO Safety Solutions are used to protect people and machinery from harm, and they are now available through AutomationDirect (Cumming, GA). Mats detect the presence of personnel on horizontal surfaces (usually the floor), edges can be used on any surface, usually near possible crushing or shearing points and bumpers are used in applications involving vehicles or other moving equipment. Specifically:
- New diamond plate safety mats are available in 24 x 36 and 24 x 48-inch sizes with a diamond plate aluminum surface designed for heavy industry applications, steel wheel carts and similar equipment; and can survive welding debris, hot parts, metal chips and foundry splatter.
- New safety edges with 15 x 10mm profiles are factory assembled for convenience in 12 edge lengths from four inches to four feet. Mounting rails and end caps are included and are factory installed. Unassembled safety edges with 15 x 25mm profiles are available in two and five-foot lengths.
- Safety bumpers with larger 60 x 100mm profiles are available in five lengths and include mounting rails. Safety bumpers are insensitive to vibration, wire the same as safety edges and are used in standard safety edge applications and other transport vehicle and industrial fork truck applications.
