Versatile, Economical, Safe

Machine Guarding Systems from WireCrafters® are a simple, effective way to protect personnel from the dangers posed by automated equipment. These barriers are a strong and economical solution to plant safety needs. Versatility of this system allows easy integration of access doors or larger openings with system controls.

Machine Guarding also doubles as a safety net by containing malfunctioning equipment. Welded and woven wire mesh is extremely resilient; it resists dings, retains its shape, and is virtually maintenance free.

These fully-framed woven wire or welded wire mesh panels bolt to posts forming a strong, secure barrier around dangerous automated equipment. Unlike high-tech light curtains and switch mats that are subject to electrical malfunctions, these safety systems are always on guard.

Woven + Welded Wire Mesh Machine Guarding

WireCrafters® offers both woven and welded wire mesh machine guarding and perimeter guarding systems to protect and separate property, equipment, and personnel. WireCrafters® Machine Guarding Systems (or commonly referred to as Physical Barriers) are available in 5', 8', 10' and 12' or any height you require.

WireCrafters Style 840 Woven Wire Mesh

By the nature of its woven wire or welded wire design, WireCrafters® guarding systems provide an unparalleled level of safety and security. The traditional woven wire mesh machine guarding systems are constructed of a 10 GA wire, woven into a 2" x 1" rectangular mesh. This heavy mesh is welded inside a 1-1/4" x 1-1/4" x 1/8" angle frame.

A more modern welded wire machine guarding system called RapidWireHD™ features a 10 GA welded wire design and is constructed in a 1 1/4" x 2 1/2" rectangular pattern. The sturdy welded mesh is surrounded by a 13 GA rolled formed angle frame. RapidWireHD™ is also available in a 2"x2" welded mesh square pattern.

Alternate Machine Guarding Systems

WireCrafters® stocks solid sheet metal in 16 GA panels as well as 1/4" Polycarbonate panels to complete your design. Expanded metal and stainless steel panels are also available for machine guarding.
