Geprüfte Sicherheit certification for Prowise iPro lifts
The Prowise iPro lift system is the safest option for teachers and students in the classroom. And now this is proven by the recent awarding of the Geprüfte Sicherheit certificate to our iPro lifts. The certificate demonstrates that iPro lifts meet the strict German standards for safe usage of equipment.
Now our touchscreens play a central role in many classrooms. Teachers and students alike enjoy spending many hours on these widely used devices. Touchscreens are routinely adjusted for height or transferred to different classrooms within the school.
Safest in the world
With the Prowise iPro lifts, whether you are a teacher, a student or a parent, you can be sure this take place in absolute safety. When developing our various lift systems, safety was our core concept. Highly responsive sensors recognise obstacles when the lift moves up and down. The lift immediately stops once the sensors detect resistance. The automatic brake that can be applied once the screen leaves its lowest position contributes to the safety of the lift mechanism. The lift is equipped with a set of unique double safety wheels and an automatic brake mechanism that only allows movement when it is in its lowest, and thus most stable, position.
Prowise is currently the only company in the market to be awarded a GS certificate for its lifts. GS is the abbreviation for the German term ‘Geprüfte Sicherheit’. GS is a German quality mark for high-quality technical equipment. The certificate indicates that our lifts meet the strict German standards for safe usage of the relevant lifts.
GS vs. CE
The difference between the GS certificate and the CE mark, which is required for all equipment used in the EU, is that equipment bearing the GS certificate has actually been independently tested for safe usage. A CE mark ‘only’ indicates that equipment has been designed and manufactured (but not yet tested) in accordance with European rules and regulations. The CE mark, therefore, is not a safety certificate.
