Fun Fact

Factories or industrial settings aren't the only places that use machine guards: the "canopies" that protect salad bars at restaurants throughout the world (also known as "sneeze guards") are made of the same material in many instances.

Machine guards provide protection for workers in virtually every type of manufacturing setting. They are typically made of Polycarbonate, Acrylic, or PETG to provide a protective barrier and an unobstructed view of equipment and processes. In many production plants, the machine guard also serves to prevent contamination of the product during manufacture.

Applications where machine guards add value are nearly countless, but some key ones are:

  • Manufacturing and processing equipment
  • Cool room dividers
  • Medical and chemical testing laboratories
  • Underground mining applications
  • Noise and dust barriers
