What good are your safety edges when they don't resist against water?
Our GE profiles have been tested in field now for more than 6 years. We know that they work under extreme conditions. I can not understand, that a lot of gate and door manufacturers are still using safety edges where they know that they are causing problems with humidity and water.
This only leads to unnecessary service costs and makes the edge 5 times more expensive. Install the safety edges and don´t come back for repairing the switching strip, cleaning the lenses or adjusting the wire for years.
ASO safety edges are tough, resistant to tears and can take a lot of abuse because they are made out of EPDM and are developed thoughtful.
ASO safety edges are a co-extrusion, where the switch chamber is already integrated into the profile. The integrated switch chamber is made out of carburetted EPDM, which means that it is flexible and you can not get any problems with bended copper inside the switching strip that causes permanent contact..
What about the water resistance of the safety edge.
With the special developed plug that is glued to the end of the small, integrated switch chamber and an additional end cap, the safety edge is resistant against water. Try it yourself!
