Light Curtain Testing

Did you know.....

the HSE call for light curtains to be tested every 6 months or 1 year depending on the light curtain type.

Details can be found in HSG180.

Machinery over time is subject to wear and tear and as such may not stop as quickly as it did when new. So although the light curtains may stop the machine, does the machine stop before you can access any moving part?

Using stop performance measuring equipment, we can physically assess the stopping time of the machine and let you know whether they are suitable placed or whether they require relocating inline with EN ISO 13855.
