WireCrafters RapidGuard Lift-Out Machine Guarding Safety System
WireCrafters RapidGuard™ Lift-Out Safety Guarding System is ideal for guarding welding machines, stretch wrappers, or any other automated equipment that also needs to be easily accessible. Unlike most guarding systems, WireCrafters RapidGuard™ panels lift out from the upright posts, allowing full access to the equipment you are guarding. This feature allows maintenance personnel or workers easy access during downtime or service calls, while still providing the safety and security required while the machine is operating. Packaging charge for custom "A" frame pallet, $65.00 for every 1,400 pounds shipped.

WireCrafters Lift-Out RapidGuard Machine Guarding System. WireCrafters RapidGuard™ Lift-Out Machine Guarding System is ideal for guarding welding machines, stretch wrappers, or any other automated equipment that also needs to be easily accessable. Unlike high-tech light curtains or switch mats which are subject to electrical malfunction, this system is always on guard. Great for machines that need 360 degree maintenance access, the RapidGuard™ system offers a full line of hinge and sliding doors to easily integrate into your facility's layout. Simple to plan, and simple to install.
WireCrafters RapidGuard™ Panels and Posts
Panels are made of 10 gauge welded wire and patterned in a 1-1/4" x 2-1/2" rectangular mesh. The welded mesh is then welded into a 1-1/4" x 1-1/4" 13 gauge rolled formed angle. Drop-in mounting brackets are welded to the guarding panel and slip into the upright posts. Strong 2" x 2" 14 gauge tube posts with lasered slats accept the tabs and reinforce the machine guarding system.
Security and Safety Come First
Each RapidGuard™ lift-out panel is designed for a tool removable bolt to be fastened on the inside of the panel system. With this bolt in place, no one can lift out the guarding panel while the machine or robot is operating. A safety switch or interlock can be supplied to a RapidGuard™ door, which must first be open to be sure the machine or robot has shut down. Once the machine or robot has shut down, you may then go to any panel, remove the bolt, go to the outside of the machine guard system, and lift the panel off from the upright posts in order to access the guarded machine or robot. The RapidGuard™ Lift-Out Machine Guarding System installs 50% faster than conventional physical barrier products and is compliant with OSHA and ANSI/RIA safety standards for machine perimeter and safety guarding.
