Low-Cost Safety Guarding

Sept. 16, 2004
Fully modular guarding systems offer an extensive range of components for virtually any in-plant application.

Designed to comply with OSHA guidelines, the units range from basic guarding panels to complete swing, scissor, sliding, or lift doors and windows. With worker safety in mind, the systems are designed to eliminate entry into hazardous zones where parts or equipment may fall or come loose during operation, causing injuries. The units also streamline machine production areas for greater efficiency. The high-strength-toweight modular systems come in interchangeable styles, postpanel or partition methods to meet any requirements. A wide variety of materials, accessories, and safety components are available.
