Machine Guard

Versatile, Economical & Safe

Machine Guarding Systems  are a simple, effective way to protect personnel from the dangers posed by automated equipment. These barriers are a strong and economical solution to plant safety needs. Versatility of this system allows easy integration of access doors or larger openings with system controls.

Machine Guarding also doubles as a safety net by containing malfunctioning equipment. Welded and woven wire mesh is extremely resilient; it resists dings, retains its shape, and is virtually maintenance free.

These fully-framed woven wire or welded wire mesh panels bolt to posts forming a strong, secure barrier around dangerous automated equipment. Unlike high-tech light curtains and switch mats that are subject to electrical malfunctions, these safety systems are always on guard.

Easily Customizable & Configurable

We offer a full line of special colors and accessories such as hinged doors, sliding doors, lift out panels and locking latches to integrate with your machine guarding system.

The welded wire’s straight lines and inherent strength of either the woven or welded wire provide a strong, modern looking guard to complement your facility and equipment.  stocks a variety of meshes to meet requirements for heavy, medium, or light duty jobs.
