Polycarbonate Safety Machine Guards

1-Polycarbonate-machine-guard

Polycarbonate sheets offer the most suitable clear medium for the safety in the workplace. Allplastics Engineering can provide a range of Clear Polycarbonate brands including Lexan, Makrolon, Palram, Safeguard and for a variety of industries including Food, Materials handling, Mining, Engineering and assembly lines; where OH&S regulations require processes or machinery to be guarded for the safety of workers. Polycarbonate UV grade is 250 times stronger than glass, can be easily cut and machined. It is virtually unbreakable and covered by a warranty from the manufacturer. This makes it the preferred choice of engineers when designing guards for machinery.

 
 
 

In applications where the guards are constantly being cleaned and are subjected to constant wear Allplastics provides Mar Resistant Grade Polycarbonate which has a special coating on both sides of the Clear Polycarbonate to minimise guards and barriers being easily damaged or marked. Brands such as Lexan MR10 and Makrolon AR2 are available in thicknesses ranging from 3mm to 12.7mm.
Allplastics can provide CNC Routered shapes to match your drawings or your broken guards. Our experienced Fabrication personnel can bend or construct chutes, guards, boxes or covers for a diverse range of applications.
For situations such as curved lathe guards or surrounds we can supply thin guage Polycarbonate which can be cold bent and secured by a Frame.
In addition to Clear Polycarbonate guards Allplastics can also fabricate Opal (off white) Polycarbonate where visibility is more important than clarity or yellow High Density Polyethylene for even higher visibility.
