ABB Jokab Safety: Modular safety fencing
Available in two versions – Quick-Guard S (standard) and Quick-Guard E (express) –Quick-Guard modular safety fencing systems from ABB Jokab Safety feature modular fencing panels that can be easily custom designed and configured to guard virtually any industrial application.
The Quick-Guard modular system consists of a limited number of parts, which are delivered partially assembled with all the necessary fittings. This makes it easy to build the system onsite, while reducing the high engineering and labor costs associated with the design and installation of more complex systems.
Utilizing components such as aluminum profiles, patented brackets, net-locks, mesh, and solid panels, there are few limitations to what can be built. The protective mesh can be cut to spec with bolt cutters, and the systems are easy to adjust when production equipment is modified or moved.
The Quick-Guard S (standard) and Quick-Guard E (express) can be used individually or combined for added customization. The welded mesh and/or polycarbonate panels are locked into the profile, increasing the inherent strength of the system. The outer wire of the mesh is locked in profile fence posts by uniquely designed net-locks, making the panel nearly as strong as if it were welded. The polycarbonate panels are locked in with specially designed infill strips which firmly secure them into the extruded aluminum profiles channel. With the company’s patented screw-lock system, all brackets come pre-mounted with fixing screws and nuts; no holes need to be drilled in the profiles and all cuts are made straight.
Quick-Guard is environmentally friendly. All components in the fencing system can easily be disassembled and reused, and all materials are 100% recyclable.
