From hydraulic press guards to heat resistant gloves, MailleTec has solutions for your shop floor problems.

Our flexible chainmail mesh is strong enough to hold up to industrial environments and has been used in metal refineries, oilfields, truck maintenance shops, lumber mills and manufacturing plants for years. Made from 304 stainless steel and yet still flexible to wrap around almost anything, MailleTec chainmail mesh has been used as projectile, access, abrasion, heat and splatter guarding.

Hydraulic Press Guards

MailleTec hydraulic press guards help keep operators safe. Our guards have a smaller pass-through area compared to other guards, are easy to move aside and have optional pockets so you can access your machine with the guard in place. Unlike coil guards, our guards won’t deform after every incident and can be repaired.

Our Hydraulic Press Guards…

 

Are Easy To Access.

Expanded metal guards limit machine accessibility. Our custom machine guarding can be easily moved aside to access the machine – no need to uninstall! We can also add optional access pockets, so you can reach your hydraulic press or other machine without moving the guard aside. 

Have A Smaller Pass Through Size.

Expanded metal guards won’t perform well against smaller projectile pieces, which can easily pass through those gaps. MailleTec chainmail guarding can help protect against projectiles as small as 1/8”. 

Can Be Made To Fit Any Machine!

Have an odd-sized unit or inconveniently placed hydraulic power pack or controls? Our safety guarding can be custom sized to accommodate your needs!

Won’t Deform After Every Incident!

Coil guards bend out of shape and need to be replaced after almost any incident (not just breakthroughs!). Our guards are rarely damaged in use.  

Are Repairable!

Even in the rare event of a breakthrough (which will still reduce the force of a projectile, and hence the likelihood of injury) the guard won’t need to be replaced entirely. We can repair it for the cost of shipping, so you don’t have to buy a new one

About Our Chainmail Mesh 

Our industrial (21g 9/64″) mesh weighs 0.73 lbs/sq.ft. (3.56kg/m2). The rings used in this mesh have an outer diameter of 0.212 inches, an inner diameter of 0.156 inches and a wire diameter of 0.028 inches. The industrial rings are approximately the same size as our medium mesh rings, but with thicker wire. The thick wire combined with a smaller ring size makes the industrial mesh our strongest chainmail ever.

Our Mesh Is…

  • Abrasion Resistant
  • Slash Resistant
  • Heat Dissipating
  • Electrical Shielding
  • Fire Proof
  • Corrosion Resistant
  • Able to be hung, draped or wrapped around almost anything
  • Food Safe
  • Often easily repaired
  • Made with over 7200 individually welded rings per sq. ft.
  • Incredibly strong and puncture resistant
  • Made from North American 304 stainless steel so it is rust and weld spatter resistant.
  • Used for a variety of applications including projectile guarding, access guarding, splatter guarding etc. 
  • Ideal for custom industrial projects. If you think chainmail might solve a machine or operational issue you have, we’d love to hear from you.

Custom Machine Guarding

 

We’ve worked with companies in the manufacturing, lumber, mining and oil industries (among many others!) to help them find solutions for their particular industrial safety and operational needs. Chainmail’s flexibility allows it to easily enclose a machine with non-standard parts. Our mesh can fit odd shaped or sized machines and can be installed in almost any setting. All of our chainmail is 100% stainless steel, welded, puncture and cut resistant, fire proof, heat dissipating and electrical shielding. Chainmail’s abrasion resistance and flexibility make it uniquely capable in a surprising number of projects. 

WE’VE MADE CUSTOM MESH GUARDING SOLUTIONS TO SOLVE MANY INDUSTRIAL SHOP FLOOR PROBLEMS.

Nova Shield

Nova Shield Gloves

  • Reduce part handling time. Chainmail’s ability to dissipate heat means your can handle hotter parts longer.

  • No more messing with tongs – simply pick up the mold, crucible, or stock. Direct handling is faster, safer and more precise.

  • Gloves can be re-lined or repaired for a small fee, making Nova Shield last almost indefinitely.

  • Welded chainmail withstands cuts, abrasions, and punctures exceptionally well.

Nova Shield Gloves
  • Can withstand contact temperatures of 1200+ Deg C
  • Radiant heat is also reduced significantly. Hands stay cooler and gloves last longer
  • Run longer beads. Great for pipe and production welding
  • Stainless steel construction means most spatter won’t stick
  • Repairable and can be relined with new base gloves
