In 2019, Miller Edge launched the ME120-C5 mounting channel for the gate industry to better protect a commonly missed entrapment zone for swing gates. This potentially dangerous entrapment zone is located along the path of travel beneath the swing gate between the gate and the ground during travel, and between the gate and curb while the gate is fully open. The ME120-C5 mounting channel is designed to secure a sensing edge at a 45° angle on the bottom of the gate to help prevent a pedestrian or object from being pinned under the swing gate as it travels or against a curb or a raised area by the swing gate.

This prevents down-time and helps us to provide better customer service and safety.

The ME120-C5 channel has an “L” Shape mounting surface for easy installation on the bottom of the swing gate. When paired with the ME120 sensing edge, the duo creates a sweep edge to safeguard the area in the direction of the gate’s travel path, ensuring the gate complies with the UL 325 safety standards.

“The C5 [channel] is nice because it allows us to use the ME120 [sensing] edges for swing gates as well as the slide gates. This allows us to use an edge that we already stock and saves us from needing to special order square or round edges to mount on the bottom of swing gates. This prevents down-time and helps us to provide better customer service and safety,” Brian Cook, American Fence Erectors, Inc.

To order the ME120-C5 mounting channel, contact your Miller Edge Inside Sales Representative. To learn more about the Sweep Edge, call our toll-free number 800-220-3343 to talk to a Miller Edge Sales Representative.
