As part of a customer’s ever increasing health and safety requirements we were contracted to design and manufacture Factory Machine Guarding for higher risk areas, one phase of the project can be seen below. Guarding was custom made to ensure minimal spaces around existing machinery however they were designed in such a way that the implementation of the guards does not interfere with the operation and routine maintenance of the machinery.
Included in the system are slide gates, cantilever slide gates, hinged doors and access panels, rise and fall access panels as well as guard rails. Each door and access panel has a magnetic read switch to monitor the status of all doors while machine is in operation coupled with that, areas which are limited to access from maintenance staff only, have a dual key access interlock for safety.
All of the guards where powder coated for long lasting durability and quality finish.
