SAFETY FENCING

SAFETY FENCING

Create a safe working environment around your machinery by erecting a safety fence. Safety fencing can be installed around existing equipment or for new installations. T-slot profile is a cost-effective and rapid option to achieve your safety fencing. Options available for integrated light curtains.

Customised Safety Fencing

Safety fencing is a critical and legal requirement for most robotic cells and many machinery cells. A safety fence creates a physical barrier between potentially dangerous machinery and the human workforce, creating a safe workplace and one that complies with modern workplace health and safety regulations. Safety fencing can be designed with light curtains to allow periodic access for people, forklifts, AGVs whilst still retaining safety compliance. Alternatively we can also offer a more simple, a gated system with isolation sensors or stops. Fence panels are most commonly supplied as mesh but an increasing number of clients are also utilising polycarbonate panels (where appropriate).

If you require regular access into the safety cell for  routine maintenance or cleaning, we can design the safety fence to utilise a patented patented Quick Release Panel System (see the second Tab) developed by our partners Alusic for easy removal of fence panels whilst still isolating the machinery from operation, but which remains fully secure during normal operation and therefore maintaining safety compliance.

Why use profile? 

T-slot profile is a commonly used material for achieving safety fencing in industrial and manufacturing environments. The ability to rapidly and easily customise the size of the fence panels using the 6 metre profile lengths, results in a very cost effective and WHS compliant safety fence.  T-slot profile is also ideal for mounting polycarbonate or mesh safety panels to create the safety zone within the machine cell. In most cases the polycarbonate panel or mesh simply fits into the profile slot by itself or with the help of a rubber sealing gasket.

Aluminium profile is also lightweight, strong and doesn't need welding which means it won't distort and you don't need a hot works permit to make modifications on site. Speaking of modifications, the nature of the t-slot profile allows you to modify the machine guard, for example if you extend a machine, conveyor line or robot cell.

Quick Release Panel System

As all Business Owners and Managers know, safety panels are now mandatory for most industrial machinery applications as either a machine guard to prevent personnel accidentally inserting their hand or limbs into a pinch point or cutting area; or to provide zoned safety fencing around a machinery cell. Aluminium profile is the most common material used to provide these mesh or polycarb safety panels, however there has always been a problem in removing these panels to undertake routine maintenance or cleaning. We have a solution – Australis can offer a revolutionary new quick release closure system for the rapid access and removal of aluminium profile safety panels. Patented Quick Release Panels Enter the patented Alusic quick release system! The Alusic safety release system is an innovative safety catch that allows for the rapid and safe removal of aluminium profile safety panels surrounding your machines or safety cells.

 

Quick-Release Panels

The system is WHS compliant as you still require a tool to safely remove the panel.

Features:

  • Quick release/ refit using a standard allen key
  • Panels will automatically pop-out once catches are disengaged – no more pushing and pulling to remove the safety panel
  • Impossible to refit the panels in the wrong position
  • Impossible to lose the patented fix pin system
  • Easy visual inspection to ensure the safety panels are correctly installed
  • Integrates easily with electrical safety interlock switches
  • Compatible with all Alusic aluminium profiles and most other profiles – meaning you can retrofit the system easily to your existing panels

These innovative quick release catches are sold in kit form and include the 2x top, 2 x bottom hinges and 4x locking pins. Simply use your allen key to quickly and easily install these innovative quick release catches for aluminium profile safety screens. 

Safety Panel Hinge Kits can also be be purchased separately HERE.
