WireCrafters Helps Shape the Machine Guarding Industry
Material Handling Organizations
WireCrafters works with many different associations and industry groups to ensure that we meet our customers’ changing requirements. MHIA, Material Handling Industry of America, is one association that brings together hundreds of manufactures of material handling equipment. Within MHIA, there are nineteen different product groups. WireCrafters is an active member of the ProGMA product group.
A Resource for the Machine Guarding Industry
The ProGMA (Protective Guarding Manufacturers Association) group is currently made up of sixteen material handling companies that manufacture protective guarding products. These manufactures work together as a resource to industry. WireCrafters, along with the ProGMA, define industrial standards for terms and machine guarding product uses. In addition to wire partitions and safety guardrail, other products within ProGMA consists of industrial netting, light curtains, pallet rack post protectors, bollards, mezzanine safety gates and mezzanine handrails. More information about these products can be found on MHIA website.
WireCrafters Guarding Applications Set the Standard
WireCrafters manufactures wire partition machine guarding for robotic work cells, packaging machines and other active machines that require a physical barrier to protect workers personnel. Our RackBack® Safety Panels provide safety and security to the backs of pallet racks, and are much safer than alternative pallet rack netting. We utilize our standard welded wire panels with offset brackets that bolt to the pallet rack to keep product from falling off into an active aisle way. These heavy ten gauge wire panels with a two inch square mesh keep small items on the pallet and prevent the spillage of large pallets. WireCrafters also manufactures industrial guard rail systems, which is another product within the ProGMA product group. Our GuardRail is offered in both 17″ and 43″ heights; single and double rail respectively. We also provide a guard rail lift-out kit for areas where fork truck access is required.
