Safety & Guarding

Keeping people, equipment and property safe is a top priority for any company. 80/20 provides the widest variety of products in the industry to ensure you get the custom guard or enclosure to fit your specific needs and requirements.

Custom Solutions

Injury and hefty fines are results of inadequate preventative measures. OSHA fines have risen by more than 80% in recent years. Whether it’s a machine guard or visual barrier, the application needs to fit your workforce and your processes. It must accommodate maintenance and repairs, integrate safety components, and meet all OSHA requirements.

Durable and Flexible

The longevity of materials is an important factor in guarding equipment, along with flexibility for maintenance and redesign or expansion. 80/20 T-slot aluminum profiles offer a reconfigurable solution with durability and strength comparable to steel. The 2-degree drop-lock ensures secure connections that are vibration-resistant.

The average cost of a minor incident is 16 times greater than the cost of the preventative measure.


Reduce Preventable Loss

When you need to keep people out and property in, custom guarding and enclosures aid in damage protection and loss prevention. Physical and visual partitions set off important, delicate, and valuable property and assist with inventory controls. These barriers help keep your workplace safe, lean, and organized by quickly warning workers of hazardous areas or equipment, identifying areas accessible to people or those off-limits, and clearly showing storage locations.


Proper Protection

Did you know that OSHA requires fall protection at elevations as low as four feet? Additionally, employers must design layouts that prevent workers from falling off elevated workstations. Frequently overlooked, OSHA necessitates that guarding be provided over dangerous machinery, regardless of the fall distance. The modular nature of 80/20 products provides a custom solution that is fast and straightforward to implement. Use T-slot profiles and products to provide interchangeable rail systems.
