Industrial Safety Mat Systems
For 60 years, Larco has focused its efforts on developing and producing the most reliable and durable presence-sensing safety mats available. Designed to meet stringent industrial requirements, Larco safety mats offer a durable solution to your machine safety needs, resisting severe environmental conditions with reliable system performance.
How Larco Industrial Safety Mats Work
Larco presence-sensing safety mats work like a normal-open switch. When stepped on, the "switch" closes and sends a signal to the controller, which sends a stop signal to the guarded machine controls.
Larco control units provide intelligence to the system by monitoring the safety mat.
Larco safety mats can be secured using a variety of trim and mounting methods that are built for a number of environments, including areas with heavy forklift traffic.
How tough are Larco Safety Mats? You can drive a forklift over them without damaging the inside components. How sensitive are they? Just 5-10 pounds of normal foot pressure activates the sensor. No wonder they’re the preferred safety mats for industries ranging from automotive and aircraft manufacturing, to factories that produce tires and wood products. Choose from a full spectrum of colors, shapes and sizes, with custom logo options.
Larco Safety Mat Controllers allow multiple mats to operate together, making it easy to enable or disable industrial processes. Our mat controls maximize productivity by giving operators and service personnel access to operational and diagnostic status of safety mat deployment.
- Maximize productivity with control
- Quickly enable and disable industrial processes
- Visual feedback on mat status

Larco Edge Guards ensure operator safety when an industrial process or automatic door closure could injure a person or impact an object. When the guard is pressed, the process is reversed. Larco Edge Guards can be ordered in custom lengths from 6 inches to 100 feet.
This pressure sensitive electric edge can be adapted to suit a wide variety of applications. It is manufactured to user specifications for length. When compressed, it sends an immediate signal to the safety controller.
When the edge guard is compressed, an electrical signal is sent to the safety controller. Designed for use in a wide variety of applications, these Sensing Edges are extremely durable. They are resistant to water, flame, and common greases and oils.
