About Fortress Interlocks

Fortress Interlocks has a simple mission: to help businesses protect their human and capital assets.

We do this by designing and manufacturing safety interlock systems for industrial applications. These range from power generation, steel making and automotive manufacturing to food and beverage processing, materials recycling and construction.

Through the use of interlocks, our products ensure all activities are undertaken in a safe, predetermined sequence. This creates a safer workplace where employees are safeguarded from injury and equipment is protected from damage.

Our product portfolio includes trapped key interlocks (mGard), heavy duty safety gate switches, with and without guard locking (amGard Pro) and standard duty interlocks with in-built control functionality (tGard). All product ranges are compliant with the latest machinery safety standards and independently approved by TUV.

Because our products are modular, they can be adapted to just about any safeguarding scenario in just about any industrial environment. If one of our existing products can’t solve your problem, our extensive experience and know-how also allows us to provide bespoke products.

With over 40 years’ experience, we’ve become known in the industry for innovative design, robust engineering and reliability.

We are a member of the Machine Safety Alliance along with Festo, Pilz Automation Technology, Troax, UK Engineering, and Werma. The Machine Safety Alliance is a non-profit organisation that aims to share its collective knowledge and expertise and help companies understand and comply with safety regulations while balancing productivity.

Based in Wolverhampton in the UK, we have offices in the USA, the Netherlands, Australia, China and Brazil and a global network of trusted distributors and channel partners.
