Industrial Machine Guarding
Troax offers a flexible system of modular protective walls for production environments. The systems are based on posts with different fittings that are combined with sturdy panels of metal mesh, sheeting or polycarbonate. The posts fit several fitting systems so you can create the optimal combination for your machine guarding cell. All systems have fitting details which remain even when the protection has been disassembled, as required by the Machinery Directive. You can read more about safety norms and product testing under the Machine Safety tab.
The systems have a standard height of 2,200 mm and 1,400 mm with a 150 mm floor gap to allow for easier cleaning. The panels are available in 7 different widths, from 200 mm up to 1,500 mm. Both the panels and the posts can be customized to create the desired dimensions. Fitting details, panels and posts for all our systems are kept in stock and can be delivered immediately.
Troax’s panels and posts
are tested along with the bracket systems and certified to withstand impacts from 309 joules up to 2,000 joules. They are made of high quality steel using an automated production process, which ensures a high and consistent product quality.
The machine guarding panels have a classic look and a mesh size of 20×100. The frame comes in two widths: ST20 is 19×19 mm and ST30 is 30×20 mm.
Transparent ST PC polycarbonate panels offer good overview of the production line and protect against particles and fluids from the production process.
Sheet metal Panels
With URSP sheet metal panels you can create fully covered cells suitable for activities such as welding.
The standard 60×40 mm post comes in three heights: 1,400 mm, 2,200 mm and 3,000 mm. The welded base results in a stable and robust construction. There is also a larger 80×80 mm post, suitable for rough environments where there is a greater risk of collision or impact with objects.
Customize Your Own
The panels as well as the posts can be customized to create the desired dimensions. Posts can be made to order, while panels are either ordered in the desired size from the factory or customized on site using different customization kits. Panels and posts of all standard sized and colors are kept in stock for quick delivery from our warehouse in Chicago, Illinois
The panels’ standard colors are grey or black powder paint. Posts are available in black, yellow or grey powder paint. If you prefer another color, the delivery time is around 1-2 weeks. We also stock hot-dip galvanized mesh panels and posts suitable for humid and wet environments.
For extreme environments with high hygiene requirements or a need for acid-resistant stainless steel, we can offer stainless steel panels and posts with a delivery time of around 2 weeks.
Strong Fix is our latest system for challenging and exposed environments. With sturdy 80×80 posts and strong fittings, the Strong Fix system is the best alternative when there is a high risk of collisions or impact. The system has been tested along with ST30 mesh panels to handle impacts up to 2,000 joules. Usage includes cells for industrial robots. Meets the requirements of the Machinery Directive, 2006/42/EC.
A robust and durable machine guard.
Rapid Fix is an innovative system with quick brackets that allow panels to be easily removed, for example when performing machine maintenance. This allows for quick access to the whole machine cell, and equally quick reassembly. The system has been tested with our mesh panels to handle impacts up to 1,000 joules. Compatible with Smart Fix. Usage includes machine cells. Meets the requirements of the Machinery Directive, 2006/42/EC.
Smart Fix is a well-proven and durable machine guarding system with threaded brackets which, along with our mesh panels has been tested to handle impacts of up to 1,600 joules. The system is easy to assemble and can be adjusted to compensate for uneven floors. Compatible with other Troax machine guarding systems. Usage includes automated production. Meets the requirements of the Machinery Directive, 2006/42/EC.
A strong and proven machine guard.
Our Combi Fix system combines Rapid Fix’s lower bracket, where the panel is hooked, and Smart Fix’s threaded bracket. This creates a strong and flexible system which can easily be disassembled, for example when performing machine maintenance. Flexible height adjustment allows you to compensate for uneven floors and panels of different height. Meets the requirements of the Machinery Directive, 2006/42/EC.
Smart Fix and Rapid Fix combined.
High Line is a hygienic, stainless steel machine guard designed to combine hygiene and security. Open profiles and fully-welded panels without horizontal surfaces ensure efficient and hygienic cleaning, even when installing directly against the floor.
