Use Partition Machine Guarding to Help Keep Your Industrial Workplace Safe

While your company pays attention to a lot of varying metrics, none are more important than the number of workplace accidents your company faces. Not only do workplace accidents result in insurance claims and OSHA fines, you genuinely want all of your employees to remain accident free. Our partition machine guarding—in both woven wire and welded varieties—is a great way to separate your automated equipment from passersby.

About Our Partition Machine Guarding

While there are several types of machine guarding, sometimes, full-height protection is required, which is where our partition guarding comes in. Essentially, this type of machine guarding provides see-through, portable walls around automated equipment. They use either welded wire mesh or woven wire panels that are bolted to posts to provide a barrier wherever you need one. Our machine guarding partitions are most commonly located near laser cutters, robotic cells, press brake equipment stations, and weld cells, but their uses are limitless. Wire partitions are preferred to light curtains or switch mats because there are no electrical malfunctions to worry about and they are primarily maintenance free.

Easily Customizable to Meet Your Machine Guarding Needs

The standard partition is five feet tall and is available in widths ranging from one foot to ten feet. Since our partition barriers feature a modular design, you can choose any combination of sizes to fit your space, with each mesh available in heavy, medium, or light duty strength. We also offer a full line of lift out panels, hinged and sliding doors, and latches that effortlessly integrate with your system for complete functionality.

Always OSHA Compliant

All of our partition machine guarding complies with OSHA standards. Additionally, they are ANSI/RIA R15.06-2012 compliant, which means that the barriers collaborate with the machines according to the safety standards set out in the ANSI/RIA R15.06-2012 change. When OSHA shows up at your facility in search of hazards, you won’t have to worry. Your automated equipment will have the proper protection surrounding it so that your risk of workplace accidents is greatly reduced.
