A failure in a screen installation can cause considerable damage. Not only the pull wires, but also nylon threads and fabric regularly suffer. The technicians at Peter Dekker Installations (PDI) can prevent this with a protective system on the axis. "The cost is nothing compared to the damage in case of malfunction."
Unfortunately for some growers and screen installers the picture above is nothing new. Failures in the screen installation occasionally occur. "And the risk of malfunction increases with the number of systems mounted above each other," says Jeroen de Jonge of PDI. "And the consequences can be major. If the screen motor is running, the damage will affect not only the pulling cable, but also the nylon threads and fabric."
This is the type of failure no one wants - customer nor installer. This is why at Peter Dekker Installaties they’ve modernized an existing system: PDI axis protection.
Protection with low-voltage
A steel wire is strung along the axes of the screen installation and is placed under weak current. A failure typically results in a broken pulling cable. When the broken cable comes into contact with the axis protection wire the screen motor shuts off and further damage is prevented.
PDI can set up protection for the entire screen system, the mounting of the system and the electrical control. De Jonge: "But obviously any electrician can connect the system." This was a conscious decision. "Because we really believe that every screen installation, single, double or triple, should have this type of axis protection. The cost is nothing compared to the damage in case of failure. Hopefully insurers will also begin to think along with us."
