Working around machinery with exposed moving parts carries the potential for severe accidents. Limbs that come into contact with or are drawn into moving machinery often end up crushed or severed. Unless contained, flying objects could strike someone in the vicinity.
Mesh machine guards are designed with a large range of applications within warehouse and manufacturing industry environments, giving a high level of security and protection.
Just a few examples of different industry sectors requiring machine guarding solutions:
Packaging, printing, food and drink, aerospace, timber, nuclear facilities, consumer white goods manufacturing, chemical industry.
Comply with the Machine Directive’s demands on permanent machine guards with our wide range of standard components and accessories. Check out the HSE website for more details: http://www.hse.gov.uk/work-equipment-machinery/puwer.htm
Keep your employees safe and your operation running smoothly. Install a physical barrier between moving machinery and human limbs. Choose machine perimeter guards – durable modular wire panels which enclose moving machinery, robotic cells or dangerous equipment. Always on duty and unaffected by power cuts, machine failure or electrical issues, machine guards are designed to maintain hygiene and worker safety.
There is a simple, economic way to comply with the complicated regulations surrounding machine safety.
Bristol Storage Equipment supply Axelent X-Guard@ Machine Guards which are available in mesh panel sections, sheet plate or plastic sections. Together with a large selection of doors, locks and accessories, Axelent X-Guard@ Machine Guards offer a complete bespoke machine guard solution.
Axelent X-Guard@ is a completely new modular machine guarding system that complies with the latest Machine Directive “2006/42/EC” that came into force on 29 December 2009, placing new demands on permanent machine guards.
Designed for environments that require a high level of safety from dangerous machinery and moving parts. With a wide range of standard components and accessories, X-Guard is guaranteed to cover all possible machine guard needs.
Our machine guards are built around a standard design with regard to panels, posts, accessories and colour – making it easier for you to complement existing guards if required.
Axelent X-Guard was launched in 2008 and since then, by listening to their customers, they have developed their range and added new dimensions, posts and accessories.
Bristol Storage Equipment’s Axelent mesh panels provide sufficient protection in most industrial environments and are available in a variety of widths and heights.
Some environments, such as food or chemical manufacture, require a more comprehensive protection in the form of plastic or sheet metal covered walls.
X-Guard plastic and sheet metal system is easy to assemble and you can use the same posts and door packages as for our mesh products. In order to avoid gaps between the section and post we recommend that you use our custom edging plate.
Plastic walls are heat resistant up to 60 degrees and available with clear plastic, or green plastic as a protection against welding flare (meets fire safety standards UL94VO and also EN1598).
These sections are available in two heights and various widths.
The flexibility of the system helps you to combine plastic, sheet metal and mesh according to your needs.
Easy, economic, protection can be configured exactly to your own application. From simple to complex designs, bespoke Machine Guard systems can be designed from existing site drawings - or simply request a site visit where we can take all the necessary details required to prepare a full quotation.
