Maximise Door Safety: A Complete Guide to Wired and Wireless Safety Edges

Ensuring safety and functionality is crucial for any door system. This guide will walk you through the steps to choose and install the right safety edge for your needs.

Choose Your Safety Edge Type

Wired Safety Edge

The wired safety edge is an affordable and easy-to-install solution. It's compatible with both the Simple Panel and the TVNRG. Wired safety edges are a highly functional choice for various applications, providing reliable safety.

Note: If you choose a wired safety edge, you'll need:

  • Curly Cable & Junction Box (TCSPBST-S25E)

Wireless Safety Edge

The wireless safety edge works with The TVNRG panel and a wireless bottom slat transmitter. This option eliminates the need for cables between the control panel and the bottom of the door, keeping the area around your door clean and obstruction-free.

Note: If you choose a wireless safety edge, you'll need either:

  • Bottom Slat Transmitter with Alarm (TCSPBST-S25E) or

  • Bottom Slat Transmitter (TCPBST-S25ENS)

Choose an Optical or Resistive Safety Edge

Resistive Safety Edge

A resistive safety edge consists of a ribbon switch inside a durable rubber housing. This is mounted directly onto your door using a plastic or aluminium channel. 

If the edge encounters an obstruction, the rubber housing deforms, causing the ribbon switch connectors to short-circuit and stop the door. When used with the Teleco panels, the rubber will stop the door and reopen by 100mm.

Optical Safety Edge

An optical safety edge has a rubber profile with a hollow chamber. OSE sensors are inserted at each end, creating a light beam between the transmitter and receiver. Compression of the rubber profile breaks this light beam, signalling the door to stop and re-open.

Just like the resistive edge, the 100mm reopening feature also works when users pair their Teleco panel with an optical edge.

Choose Rubber Type and Bumper (Optical Safety Edge Only)
