– our customers –

We asked our clients what they like to see on this site and pictures of our guards fitted to all different types of machinery in many different applications or industries came up frequently. 

Although we have a lot of photos of our guarding that our installation engineers have taken when fitting guards at our clients’ sites, we would really enjoy seeing and publishing your pictures too! Please send us your photos, preferably landscape oriented showing your guards, your machinery and even better with your personnel to [email protected]
