Pressure sensitive safety mat
Pressure sensitive mats as safety element
in public transport vehicles
Bircher Reglomat stepping mats are used to protect people from getting trapped in the doors of public transport vehicles. They safeguard the entrance area and therefore protect people against injury. The function of the stepping mats corresponds to that of an electrical switch. When anyone steps on the surface of the mat, or a weight is placed on it, two electrical parallel contact surfaces are pressed together and the electrical circuit is made.
