Safeguard Horizontal Band Saws

Note: This product does not work well with saws with rotating heads for angle cuts. This safety guard works best for making straight cuts on band saws.

Putting a safety guard on a horizontal band saw is challenging, but we have designed a guard to protect the blade from accidental access. It comes in two see-through shields that swing out to allow access to change blades or the work area.

Product Features

The PS-1 guard for horizontal band saws consists of two transparent screens. It has built-in interlock switches that disable the system when one of the guards is opened. The shields can be opened outward.

Our standard size is 600mm (23.6”) wide x 400mm (15.75”) in height

The post height is: 1120mm (44”)

The screens can be custom-made for your needs.

  • The guard comes with both a back and front shield.
  • Shields are adjustable up/down.
  • Both shields have an interlock switch.
  • Transparent PVC curtains cut into strips allow the material to pass through easily.

Installation Precautions

This safety guard may be challenging to install on some horizontal band saws. Be prepared to have material on hand to fabricate brackets. Some band saws do not have a good base for attaching the posts. The electrical interlocks must connect to a motor starter. Click here if your machine lacks motor starter/restart protection.
