Modular machine guarding system offers unlimited versatility

Procter Machine Guarding's Angel modular machine guarding system is offered with a broad range of standard components, but customised components can also be specified for delivery in a matter of days. This makes Angel far more versatile than conventional perimeter guarding systems. Furthermore, the Angel system is designed to be attractive and to enhance the visual appearance of the working environment, which is good for workforce morale and for factories that host visitors.

Unlike other perimeter guarding systems, Angel provides complete design freedom in that guarding can be configured to suit any machine or factory layout. This is because the fencing panels can be manufactured to any size, and the innovative use of round posts means that panels can be fixed at any angle, not just straight or at right angles. Furthermore, patented Universal Brackets enable multiple panels to be attached to a single post, which gives greater scope for creating the ideal guarding configuration or combination of guarding and partitioning for other areas such as stores or quarantines. Panel bracketry is concealed behind fascia plates that give a clean appearance with no fasteners visible form the outside. Despite these features, panels can still be removed quickly for access during maintenance operations; depending on the size of the panel and the infill material used, this can be done singlehandedly.


As well as specifying the panel height and width, customers can choose the infill material (sheet steel, welded wire mesh, polycarbonate or a combination of these), and there is a choice or hinged, sliding (tracked or cantilevered), and rise-and-fall gates in any size and with the customer's choice of infill. Virtually any access control system can be used with the gates, and these can be installed by Procter's fitters, a system integrator or the customer. All Angel products are supplied in a durable polyester powder coated finish, with the standard colours being yellow, satin black, gloss black and metallic charcoal grey. Alternatively, customers can specify colours to suit the corporate or factory colour scheme, or to identify different production areas.

Standard components are generally available for delivery within five working days, and customised components can usually be delivered in the same timescale. This rapid delivery, combined with the ease with which Angel components can be reused, makes the system useful for factories applying Lean Manufacturing principles, where there is often a need to rearrange the production facility in order to eliminate waste. Furthermore, an Angel system is extremely simple to specify, as all that the Angel advisors require is a dimensioned sketch plan of the machine footprint, with notes about the desired guard height or distance from the machine, the type of infill, the finish and other customer-specific requirements. From this, the Angel advisors will prepare a CAD drawing of the layout, complete with a bill of materials, from which a fixed-price quotation can be prepared.

Procter Machine Guarding has a team of installers that can erect the guarding at a time to suit the customer - which may be overnight or at a weekend - so that disruption is kept to an absolute minimum.
