Machine Guards

Plastic machine guards are protective barriers or covers made from plastic materials that are used to safeguard various types of machinery and equipment. They are designed to protect operators and other personnel from injury by preventing contact with moving parts or dangerous components of the machine.

Plastic machine guards can be custom designed to fit specific machines and applications. They can be made from a variety of plastic materials, including polycarbonate, acrylic, PETG, and PVC, among others. These materials offer a range of benefits, such as durability, impact resistance, and optical clarity.


Some common types of plastic machine guards include:

  1. Enclosures: Fully enclosed barriers that completely encase the machinery to prevent access to moving parts.
  2. Modular guards: Interlocking plastic panels that can be configured to fit around the machine.
  3. Hinged guards: Protective barriers that are attached to the machine with hinges, allowing for easy access to the equipment when needed.
  4. Fixed guards: Permanent barriers that are bolted or fastened to the machine.

Plastic machine guards are used in a variety of industries, including manufacturing, automotive, and food processing. They are an essential safety measure that helps protect workers and prevent accidents in the workplace.
