Grace provides innovative products that allow workers to perform service/maintenance tasks on machines safely by reducing the risk of arc flash and electrocution. Grace products can be divided into two groups, GracePorts® and Safeside® products.
GracePorts® are fully customizable communications ports that allow access to control panels safely and conveniently through closed doors, minimizing the need for PPE by eliminating the risk of exposure to Arc Flash hazards. a Graceport extends the data ports of internally mounted devices from the inside, to the outside of control panels. Grace provides over 6000 different combinations of cables, connectors, and outlets in NEMA 1/12/4/4X, stainless steel, and Nema 7/9 housings.

Safeside products are Permanent Electrical Safety Devices (PESDs). PESDs are a family of electrical components hardwired to a source of voltages and installed into electrical systems. They enable workers to verify the voltage status of equipment without exposure to the hazard. PESDs reduce the likelihood of arc flash and shock hazard because they diminish voltage exposure, provide voltage labeling on all sources and allow for 24/7/365 visual and/or audible indication of voltage. While PESDs cannot be used as the sole device to check for the absence of voltage, when partnered with a voltmeter, they create an electrically safer work condition. This allows for workers’ exposure to shock and arc flash hazards to be further diminished during LOTO procedures because workers have no susceptibility to voltage.
