Safe, Economical & Effective Guarding

Safe, Economical & Effective Guarding

Constructed with sturdy steel and aluminum, the REAR-GUARD system is highly visible and meets all OSHA requirements. It’s designed to halt operation of equipment for quick, safe access to machine components and alternately prohibit access during operation. These features prevent injuries and increase production time.

Typical REAR-GUARD uses include guarding everything from press brakes, coil feeds, robotic tube bending cells and football field sized industrial machine setups. It’s also available for fall protection on loading docks because the design ensures the loading dock doors will not hinder normal dock operations.

Curtains and Other Customization

Completely Customizable

The REAR-GUARD system can be designed for your custom setup.

We offer 3 curtain options for added protection, including flexible stainless steel mesh, military grade fabric and orange welding curtains. See “Features” below for details.

REAR-GUARD can also be integrated with safety relay controls, safety interlock switches and lockout/tag out provisions. And can be designed as a portable unit, used to set up temporary guarding systems quickly and easily.
