Moving machine parts can cause workplace injuries. Serious injuries can result in permanent disabilities. The purpose of machine guarding is to protect the machine operator and other staff in the work area from hazards created during the machine’s normal operation. Any machine part, function, or process that might cause injury must be safeguarded.

Sheet metal machine guards are used where, in addition to preventing access to machine hazards, there is also a need to contain swarf, cutting chips or coolant. Sheet metal guards can be used in conjunction with other types of guarding such as wire mesh guarding, or sheet metal can be used to enclose a machine fully, with safe access points and viewing windows located where necessary. For noisy machines, our sheet metal guards can incorporate soundproofing materials to create acoustic enclosures.
