Custom Wire Mesh
Versatile and Durable Machinery Safety Solutions
Wire mesh guards are an integral component of machinery safety in various industries. These guards serve a dual purpose, providing both process visibility and essential protection against access to hazardous machine parts. Their versatility makes them suitable for a wide range of applications.
The Benefits of Wire Mesh Guards:
Durability and Reliability: Wire mesh guards are unaffected by power cuts, machine failures, or electrical issues. They provide robust and long-lasting protection for your machinery.
Versatility and Customization: We specialize in producing bespoke wire mesh guards tailored to your unique requirements. This includes special dimensions, electromechanical or pneumatic operation, and adaptations to meet specific industry demands.
Unrestricted Airflow: In applications where cooling and ventilation are crucial, wire mesh guards offer a distinct advantage. They facilitate unrestricted airflow, preventing machinery from overheating.
Preventing Climbing: For large machines or those located outdoors, wire mesh guards with the correct specifications deter unauthorized access and climbing, enhancing safety.
Construction of Wire Mesh Guards:
Our wire mesh guards feature a robust framework constructed from tube or angle, with wire mesh serving as the infill. Depending on your application and industry, we use materials like mild steel, stainless steel, or aluminum. Mild steel guards are typically finished with hot-dip galvanizing and/or powder coating for corrosion resistance and a high-quality finish.
Access Points and Safety Features:
Access to machinery and equipment is facilitated through hinged or sliding gates equipped with appropriate interlocks. Alternatively, electro-sensitive protective devices, such as light barriers or laser area scanners, can be integrated for enhanced safety. When we install the guards, we also ensure proper connectivity with the machine’s control system if required.
Standards and Compliance
Our custom wire mesh machine guards adhere to stringent industry standards, including BS EN ISO 14120, BS EN ISO 13857, and BS EN 349. These guards also aid compliance with regulatory requirements such as the Machinery Directive and the Supply of Machinery (Safety) Regulations for new machines. For existing machinery, our wire mesh guards help meet legal obligations under PUWER (Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations).
