7 - Positioning pf pressure-sensitive mats or floors

Last edit: 03/03/2023

The minimum width of pressure-sensitive mats/floors shall be ≥ 750 mm to prevent the possibility of easy stepping over without actuation of the device. 
The minimum distance, S, in millimetres, from tha hazard zone to the outermost edge of the detection zone of the protective device, shall be calculated using Equation: 


If the protective device is mounted on a step or raised platform, then the minimum distance may be reduced by 0,4H where H is the height of the step in millimetres.
