“The X-Guard Contour was the market’s first machine guard with 90-degree corner angles that offer round corners on the guarding,” Hoxey said.

“This feature ensures that the X-Guard Contour is an ideal solution for confined areas within a production environment or narrow warehouse and has grown to be one of the most popular in the series.”

Axelent said the X-Guard range is designed to ensure that the guarding fits easily and quickly around all types of machines and safety areas. The X-Guard range offers flexibility and the guards are available in mesh panel, sheet plate and plastics sections.

The X-Guard features smart door solutions, so the end user does not need to pre-determine whether they need a left or right-hinged door. The sections are available in 13 widths and 4 heights and is quick to assemble.

Hoxey said the solution’s X-Key is designed for quick panel release and ensures the user can re-configure the panels as equipment and demand on the facility grows and changes.

"The X-Key allows the customer to change the hinge and lock with a simple operation which means you can easily and quickly change the configuration of the machine guarding as and when the need arises,” he said.
