About Our Guards

  • Protect operators from projectiles as small as 1/8”
  • Optional access slits allow the workpiece to be manipulated without moving the guard
  • Can be moved aside for machine maintenance without uninstalling
  • Made from North American 304 stainless steel so it is rust and weld spatter resistant
  • If your guard is damaged in regular use, we’ll repair it for the cost of shipping only.

Our Guards Are...

  • Tried and tested – already in use in over 50 OSHA approved installations.
  • Flexible enough to allow any size or shape of workpiece to still be properly guarded – ideal for your hydraulic press!
  • So easy to use, once it goes on there is no reason to take it off We can provide hanging rod fixtures
    for installation. Alternatively, a hanging rod can easily be made on site with steel conduit and simple tools.

Nova Shield Welding Gloves Offer Heat & Cut Resistant Protection

 

* Reduce production time by handling hotter parts sooner

* Radiant heat is also reduced significantly. Hands stay cooler and gloves last longer

Do You Have A Particular Machine That Needs Guarding?

Our guards were originally designed for hydraulic presses, but have been adapted to many other uses – from sawmills to a Mars lander. Over the years we’ve had our chainmaille used in all sorts of projects, including sharksuits, faraday cages, and various types of shielding. If you think chainmaille might help solve a particular problem in your shop, email us a description at orders@mailletec.com !   

Protection Without An Obstructed View

One of the many advantages of chainmaille is that it offers superior protection while still allowing you to see through it. Our guards allow the operator a clear view of the workpiece!

The Safest Guard Is One That Stays In Use

At MailleTec we know that a guard only works if you use it. With that in mind, we designed our guards to be the most versatile and user friendly on the market. By being easy to use, accessible and quick to move around, they
stay in place and get used everytime. Our guards are easy to see through so you can always keep your work in sight.
