German term or phrase: Lichtvorhang
Im Normalbetrieb sind ausreichend Schutzvorrichtungen, z.B. Schutzgitter, Abdeckungen, Lichtvorhänge oder Trittmatten zu installieren, um das Bedienpersonal vor Quetschungen durch die Mechanik zu schützen.

I know what it is but what do you call it? Lamp/light screen? Lamp grid?

Thanks Mary! I'm not exactly 'back' in Toronto yet. Still sitting in Manila where, among other conundrums, Internet connections are achingly slow.

Went diving for a week on the Great Barrier Reef, then party for a week in Sydney. Everything went well except for the weather. Didn't imagine that I would be cold in Australia (coming from Canada and all).

Working on three major German projects right now, then I'll take off again to go diving in Malaysia and Thailand. My only regret is that I'll miss autumn in Canada, back Nov. 9. I tried answering Kudoz questions today, as you saw, but feel a bit unequipped (pardon the pun) without my ref. library. But I see you, Uli, Tom and Kim have manned Fort Kudoz quite ably.

I'm back but some parts are a-missin. ;-)
