Protecting workers from machinery, such as robots and other similar automated systems, is an essential requirement for all manufacturing sites and businesses where areas of potential danger exist. Apart from ensuring that employees benefit from a safe environment the cost of accidents can be crippling in both down time and financial terms.
An ideal solution is available from Stakrak Ltd with their range of STAK GUARD modular perimeter machine guarding mesh systems which are fast and easy to install. Stakrak can also provide specialist knowledge and expertise to ensure that you purchase the most cost-effective solution to meet your requirements and most importantly, one which complies with the latest Machine Guarding Directives (2006/42/EC) which came into force in December 2009. These relate to captive fixings and the use of a tool being required to remove the guard.
Two different modular systems are available in a multitude of panel widths and heights ensuring the best solution for most machine guarding applications. A range of door types and locking systems are also available, from basic snap and catch devices to more sophisticated interlocks with switches. Standard colours are grey, black or yellow, depending on the system selected, but any RAL colour can be supplied.
