What is the maximum gap allowed between the floor and the bottom edge of safety fences?
In EN ISO 13857, 180 mm is given. However EN ISO 11161 for integrated manufacturing system allows 200 mm. It is safer to go for 180 mm or less (our machine guard X-Guard has as standard 100 mm) to prevent persons from accidentally sliding into a hazard zone underneath a fence.
