Finger protection profiles with an integrated safety contact edge

Retrofittable safety for the inward-swinging and outward-swinging doors and folding, sliding and sliding plug doors of buses and trains

Gummi-Welz GmbH & Co. KG's production activities focus on rubber sealing systems for doors, hatches and windows in buses and special-purpose vehicles. We develop finger protection profiles tailored to suit your specific application and with a pre-installed safety edge. GWU therefore offers you retrofittable safety for the inward-swinging and outward-swinging doors and folding, sliding and sliding plug doors of buses and trains.

Finger protection profiles with an integrated safety contact edge

Specially developed to increase bus and train door safety   
  • 1A finger protection profile on a door's leading edge
  • 2Impact protection
    on the secondary closing edge
  • 3Foot protection edge
   

The advantages of the safety contact edge 

  • Doors open immediately to prevent trapping
  • A high-quality soft seal made of flexible quality rubber
  • Avoids trapping and injuries
  • Designed in accordance with the DIN EN 14752 and ECE R 107 standards

Finger protection profiles for buses 

Profil mit Druckwelleneinrichtung

  1. Anti-trap protection effective directly on the door's leading edge 
  2. Suitable for straight, curved and angled doors 
How it works: When touched by people or objects, the pressure wave chambers are compressed. The air volume that escapes through a tube is fed into a membrane switch, which creates an electrical switching pulse that causes the door to reverse.

A profile with an electric safety contact edge

  1. Anti-trap protection effective directly on the door's leading edge
  2. Drag detection in the case of closed doors
    (trapped people/objects can be detected)

  3. Suitable for straight, curved and angled doors
  4. A maintenance-free system with function monitoring

How it works: A connection is established when the safety contact edge comes into contact with a person or object. This creates an electrical switching pulse that causes the door to reverse.
