Aluminium Machine Guarding 

Overview

Thor ASGuard range (Aluminium Section Guards) is a modular fencing system designed to provide physical protection for the workforce and keep up with the increasing demands of the robotics and manufacturing industries. 

Thors ASGuard range is a popular alternative to steel guarding. Its modular design can easily be modified and gives an aesthetic appeal. Depending on the application Thor's panel configuration can use a range of inserts from 3mm thick polycarbonate to 2mm thick powder-coated sheet steel. Using clear polycarbonate offers a clear view of the cell interior whilst providing excellent impact resistance and is especially favourable for spot welding applications.
