Grinders are one of the most frequently cited machines during OSHA machine safety inspections. This is frequently due to improperly adjusted work rests and tongue guards on bench/pedestal grinders, as well as a lack of ring testing for the grinding wheels. OSHA 29 CFR SubPart O 1910.215 is a “machine specific” (vertical) regulation with a number of requirements, which if left unchecked, are often cited by OSHA as violations. ANSI B11.9-2010 (Grinders) and ANSI B7.1 2000 (Abrasive Wheels) also apply.

FEATURES & BENEFITS

    ROBUST CONSTRUCTION

PROTECTOR Series Shields are constructed of 14-gauge powder-coated steel and 3/16” shock-proof and oil-resistant polycarbonate, creating an extremely tough, rigid and durable safety shield to protect operators from flying debris, lubricants, coolants and swarf.

    MODULAR DESIGN

PROTECTOR Series Shields are modular in design so that shield shape, size, mount, arm, offset, lighting, interlocking and safety monitoring can be configured to provide the best solution for even the toughest machine guarding challenge.

    WORKSPACE SAFETY LIGHTING

PROTECTOR Series Shields can include color-changing LED lighting nested into the frame of the shield to illuminate the work area during machine operation. The LED light strip is integrated into the shield frame and each strip packs 262 Lumens of light per linear foot.

    SAFETY INTERLOCKS & MONITORING

PROTECTOR Series Shields can be upgraded with a safety-rated interlock switch or switches, dependent upon application. Interlocking shields exceed OSHA CFR 1910 regulations and ANSI B11 Series standards, and are considered a best safety practice.
