EVO® Conveyor Guards
from Martin Engineering provide a simple, flexible and cost-effective solution
to conveyor guarding, with component designs to help keep personnel safe by
restricting access to moving parts and pinch points.
The user-friendly design of the new
guards is provided by standardized panels that take a systematic approach to
guarding, with the flexibility to fit virtually any conveyor design. Wedge clamps allow the guarding panels
to be removed and reinstalled quickly and easily, so systems can be expanded or
relocated as needed. A variety of
wedge bolts and bracket sizes are available to suit a wide range of mounting
EVO® Conveyor Guards are
self-supporting and feature a rugged modular design that installs on supplied
angle iron structure, eliminating the need to attach directly to conveyor
equipment. Integrated handles
reduce the number of parts and tools required.
The new conveyor guards
conform to OSHA 29 CFR 1910.217 when installed with a minimum of 5.50 inches of
clearance between the guard opening and hazard. They also comply with
Standards 56.14107 (moving machine parts), 56.14110 (flying or falling
material), 56.14112 (guard construction), 75.1722 (mechanical equipment guards)
and 77.4400 (mechanical equipment guards).
