Product Features

Two surface safety guard shield with a choice of polycarbonate or laminated safety glass windows.  Can be used for (but not limited to!) lathe chucks, scientific instruments, or chemical mixers.   Adjustable mounting bracket included with this kit.

The interlocked shield rotates out of the way and as a result allows clearance for setup and part loading. The screen is made out of impact resistant polycarbonate (Lexan™) material. Polycarbonate is well known for its high impact strength. Most importantly, this safety guard includes a built-in electrical safety interlock switch which is tamper resistant.

These shields meet or exceed OSHA, ANSI and CSA standards for machine safety guarding.

Why Have Safety Interlocking?

An electrical safety interlock prevents the machine from operating when the shield is opened. This safety guard features an electric switch that disables the machine’s motor. The switch is made in such a way as to prevents easy bypass of the interlock switch.

When we do on-site visits, we often see safety shields moved to the side and never put back on the machine. An interlock is a simple solution to prevention of safety guard misuse or removal.
