X-Guard – The Flexible, Safe System

X -Guard is a Modular Machine Guarding system that complies with the latest Machine Guard Directive ‘2006/42/EC’ which came into force on 29th December 2009.

Standard colours of Yellow RAL1018 Posts and Black RAL9011 Panels ensure the danger area is highlighted while keeping the machine clearly visible.

Revolutionary captive fixings for securing the panels to the posts allowing easy removal for service access. 

These ensure that X -Guard complies with the latest Machine Guard Directive and also carries the following benefits:

  • Fast and easy installation
  • Ability to quickly swap a ‘wall panel’ for a ‘door panel’ if required
  • Change door hinge and lock handing if required
  • Full design service available

Easy Construction

Removal of panels is fast and can easily be carried out by one person using the supplied ‘X-Key’, from either inside or outside of the enclosure. Panels simply snap into place, and is ideal self-assemble machine guarding.
