Aluminium Machine Guarding
In some industries there is a preference for lightweight guards manufactured using aluminium extruded framework in-filled with either mesh, sheet metal or polycarbonate. Aluminium guarding is often used just as a physical perimeter barrier within certain production areas of a factory, rather than to protect employees from the hazards of using a particular machine. For example, aluminium guards might be used as a perimeter barrier to the production line in a factory packing pharmaceutical products.
At our own factory in South Wales, we manufacture aluminium machine guards both from our own design or, if preferred, from the design and to the specification determined by our customer. In all cases though, our highly skilled workforce ensure high quality and exacting standard, with this coupled to excellent in-house facilities to ensure that all aluminium profiles are equally well partnered with the precise fabrication of infill materials.
Custom Design Aluminium Machine Guards
We are able to provide custom designed solutions for aluminium guarding. Such bespoke solutions will often be more suitable than purely off-the-shelf modular system, as they can take into account a complete range of factors such as height, infill materials, viewing panels, configuration, fixing method and finish. But even an aluminium bespoke guarding solution can still be sued in a modular way, with this allowing for future flexibility – e.g. change of use or a different configuration on the factory floor.
Guaranteed Compliance on Aluminium Machine Guarding for Complete Peace of Mind
When you have an aluminium machine guard designed and manufactured by Procter Machine Guarding, you do so in the knowledge that it will be fully compliant with all relevant safety standards and, if required, will also be CE marked.
