Machine Guarding

Image hp box 1

There are many reasons to hard guard machinery. Pinch points, hot spots, sensitive controls. We can help you design the most efficient hard guarding system for your application, from simple partitions to enclosures and fencing.

Safety Solutions

We can help you with perimeter guarding, press guarding, machine safety guarding and partition systems. And if you need more than just framing, we can integrate into your project safety technologies such as light curtains, interlocks, E-Stops. We are knowledgeable in all matters of the latest safety technologies.


Safe Space PPE

Safe Space Personal Protective Equipment

When social distancing is not practical, create a SAFE SPACE in your facilities using prefabricated safety shields and partitions designed specifically for industrial manufacturing scenarios. Best thing is, most are created and designed by our customers. If you can imagine it, we can built it.


Prefabricated panels mean your order is delivered ready to install. Safe T-Slot Guard panels are perfect for fencing off areas, guarding machines, constructing temporary or permanent storage areas or rooms which can be taken down and reinstalled elsewhere. Add doors, gates, interlocks, latches, handles and more.

Work Stations

Why settle for stock furniture?  A work station built to the perfect height and dimensions for an employee can increase worker comfort and productivity. Work stations can be fitted with pegboards, LED track lighting, electrical and pneumatic hookups, and more.

We Build it Your Way

  • DSC_9066
    It all starts with an idea. Your idea. Many of our customers bring us their aluminum extrusion project ideas scratched on a piece of paper or a napkin. That’s cool, we know what to do next.
  • DSC_9074
    We bring your idea to life. Our engineers understand the capabilities of aluminum extrusion and can suggest additional design and structural improvements. Or, we can design your project from scratch.
  • DSC_8994 (2)
    Once you approve the final design of your project, we start cutting and drilling. Our technicians are competent in an array of projects including machine guarding, fencing, furniture, carts and bins.
  • DSC_3466
    Assembly is easy and usually done in a few hours at our cut shop. Or if you have the onsite expertise, we can cut and send the aluminum and accessories for you to install at your facility.

    As your project builds out, you choose material choices best suited for the job. That could mean colored mesh, clear or colored polycarbonate, or even painted or finished wood. The choice is yours.

Watch Hard Guard Built in 40 Seconds

Our technicians understand the nuances of working with aluminum extrusion. We can build your projects in our shop, or partially build your project and finish the installation (adding automation or controls technology to the structure) in your facility.

Workstations for Comfort & Efficiency

Every workstation has different demands and needs. Depending on where your employees work, they may need a special height, additional LED lighting, or some other customization to help them be as comfortable and efficient as possible. Workstations and carts made of aluminum extrusion are easy to design and can be easily modified later as needs change. Try that with welded steel.
