CE marking for protective fence mandatory regulated

Certificated safety in a machine-controlled environment is clearly marked with the CE marking. But it is not only machines that must comply with a wide range of standards and norms according to the Machinery Directive, or MRL for short. Manufacturers of safety fence systems must also comply with the defined obligations of the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC in the form of the 9th Ordinance to the Product Safety Act (9th ProdSGV) and provide their systems with a CE marking.

Brühl protective fence systems completely CE-compliant

All safety fence systems marketed by Brühl are CE marked as a whole and fully comply with the defined specifications of the Machinery Directive.

Safety fences: part of the Machinery Directive

According to the current guideline for the application of the Machinery Directive, protective fence systems are defined as so-called safety components. According to the directive, one speaks of a relevant safety component requiring CE marking if

  • it serves to ensure a safety function

  • it is placed on the market separately

  • the failure and/or malfunction endangers the safety of persons

  • it is not necessary for the functioning of the machine or can be replaced by components usual for the functioning of the machine
