Procter introduces SATECH low-cost modular guarding


Having signed a distribution agreement, Procter Machinery Guarding is now able to supply the Satech low-cost modular perimeter guarding system to customers in the UK and Ireland. This includes a comprehensive range of panels, posts, doors, bracketry and accessories. Versatile and economical, the system will appeal to anyone using perimeter guarding, including end-user manufacturers, warehousing OEMs and automation line builders.

The Satech perimeter guarding range from Procter includes four individual specifications designed to suit different applications and budgets. One feature common to all Satech systems is that they are extremely simple to install; alternatively, customers can take advantage of Procter’s installation teams that work quickly and efficiently to erect the guards during weekends or planned maintenance shutdowns, thereby avoiding any disruption to production.

To suit each post and panel specification there is a comprehensive choice of hinged, sliding and rise and fall access gate designs to fulfil every machine access requirement.

From the customer’s guard layout, Procter will provide a fully detailed CAD drawing with plan and 3-D views, a full list of all guard components and a fixed-price quotation for the supply and delivery of all parts, plus a separate installation cost.

Jeremy Procter, Managing Director of Procter Machinery Guarding, comments: “We looked at a variety of suppliers before choosing to distribute the SATECH range. This company is not just focussed on selling panels and posts, but has designed – and continually develops – associated products that are well thought out to solve the types of problems that our customers frequently encounter. All of the products are fully compliant with the latest standards, they are produced to a consistently high quality, and there is a range of specifications to suit different types of application – so customers do not need to pay for something that is over-engineered for their needs. With low-cost components that are designed for easy (and speedy) assembly, a fully installed system works out to be remarkably good value.”

Alongside the standard guarding components, Procter Machinery Guarding designs, manufactures and installs bespoke guards, plus the company can supply and install light curtains, interlock switches, safety mats and other associated equipment that is compatible with the customer’s site requirement.

Procter site design engineers provide advice on guarding required to achieve compliance with current standards and consult with engineers and operators to determine the style of guarding, access and maintenance requirements to achieve the optimum guarding solution. Machinery risk assessments to meet PUWER 1998 can also be arranged if required.

For regular users, free 3D perimeter guarding design software is available, enabling customers to prepare their own layouts and email these to Procter for a prompt quotation.
