C. Aiano & Sons – leading the way in wire mesh guard manufacture since 1860
SENSOR GUARDS & SOCKET GUARDS
Aiano’s makes wire mesh sensor guards for all kinds of devices including PIR devices, motion detectors, thermostats, electric sockets and switches, and many other applications.
We have a selection of standard wire mesh sensor guards and wire mesh socket guards that suit many of the most popular fittings, and we offer a bespoke service. Please contact us for more information.
How to choose your sensor guard
It is important to have some distance between the sensor and the guard – we call this clearance. The strength of wire mesh comes from its ability to absorb impact. If the guard is too close to the fitting there is a risk of the mesh ‘giving’ and damaging the light fitting it is designed to protect. Therefore selecting the correct guard size is of paramount importance. However, sensors come in many shapes and sizes and it is difficult to generalise about the clearance.
General guidelines for clearance on sensor guards would be the same as for bulkhead guards, but if in doubt please contact us for advice:
- width – 100mm
- height – 100mm
- depth from the wall – 50mm
Our standard wire mesh socket guards are based on the standard UK double socket and are suitable for most single and double sockets. However, if your sockets extend a long way from the wall or are non-standard in someway then you may wish to contact us for advice.
