Tapeswitch Sensing Edges

Tapeswitch sensing edges are pressure-sensitive safety edges which are typically mounted on the leading edge of a moving object to stop the object and provide cushioning in the event of an impact.

If you need extra protection for vulnerable equipment, people, or both, Tapeswitch can provide a reliable and durable sensing edge that meets your specific requirements and gives you peace of mind.

Tapeswitch Safety Mats

Tapeswitch safety mats protect people working in hazardous areas. With extensive experience in safety mat manufacturing, Tapeswitch are able to offer a completely bespoke product with a fast turn-round time.

Options cover both primary and secondary guarding scenarios,  as either:

  • a trip device, triggering a signal when a person enters the danger area
  • a presence-sensing device, staying actuated for as long as the person is inside the danger area
  • a combined trip and presence-sensing device


New Project or Retrofit?

Whether you want to build in safety from the start for a new machine or are looking to retrofit a mat to an existing piece of equipment, Tapeswitch can provide exactly what you need. They are the only UK manufacturer to provide a full customomisation service, including cut-out sections, connectors, fixings and a choice of outer materials, providing mats that will withstand even the harshest of conditions.

Where off-the-shelf safety mats might be a little cheaper, they are often a compromise. A poorly-fitting mat, for example, can put safety at risk, but with a mat that is designed for your specific application, you get a product that is easy to install, works just as you intended, and provides long-lasting reliability.
