MACHINERY SAFETY FENCE
The panel joiner is used to connect both sides of 2 panels together to form one large panel. Each Aluminium extrusion is inserted 150mm into the ends of both the upper and lower panel frames and secured by 2 self-tapping screws (supplied). The panel joiners are sold as a kit containing 2×300 mm long joiners and four screws, they are made from mill finish extruded aluminium.
The De-Fence System
De-Fence is a modular guarding and fencing system. Designed to comply with AS 4024.1–2014 Series safety of Machinery. De-Fence is simple to install, flexible and configures to the widest range of applications. The system comprises a range of standard panel lengths from 500 to 2000mm with the option of welded mesh or polycarbonate in-fill. De-Fence steel posts are manufactured from 75 x 75 x 2.5mm thick RHS tube. They are pre-drilled on all four sides to accept our range of steel brackets which makes them ideal for multi-sided enclosures or changes in direction. Available in two standard heights and finished in high visibility yellow powder coat. De-Fence mesh or polycarbonate in-fill panels are retained in place with tamper resistant fixings that can only be removed or adjusted by authorised persons using tools not normally available to operators. Any fixed in-fill panel can be converted into a swing gate, simply by removing the panel brackets from one side and pivoting the other to create a left or right hand opening. Optional sliding gates are available on request. De-Fence is a completely modular design, which means that all the components including posts, brackets and panels are interchangeable to provide a zoning system that can be configured to any situation.
We understand that sometimes terms like ‘modular’ or ‘standard’ just don’t work for every guarding application. We also understand that you may not be aware of your obligations, or where to turn for custom made machinery guarding. At Barrier Group we have the experience and the expertise to help.
