Installation Kit for Safety Shields



  • Easy to replace polycarbonate shield. You can cut your own or order spare shields from us here.
  • Includes an interlock switch, which is encased to prevent tampering. The interlock switch is a positive-action mechanism for safety applications.
  • The lathe guard flips up far enough to remove a chuck with an overhead crane. An adjustable rotation tension mechanism prevents the shield from falling by itself if it is not entirely in the open position.
  • Welded steel frame construction
  • A tough powder-coated finish resists damage and is easy to clean.
  • The lathe guard shield is fully adjustable horizontally.

Chuck Size vs Lathe Guard Size

We calculate the chuck size by taking the “A” dimension in the image below and dividing it by 1.5 to account for the jaws extending past the diameter of the chuck.

Easy Installation

Two-bolt installation:

We use aluminum angle stock, which is easy to work with and cut.
