Company has reintroduced its Vertiguard Automated Barrier Panel, adding many upgrades that make the unit well suited for industrial facility managers looking to increase safety and productivity in their plants. The unit is a bottom-up pneumatic panel that provides physical separation between machine operators and manufacturing processes. An alternative to light curtains or area scanners, it is useful for small interaction points with single or double robotic cells, part assembly and conveyor openings. It reduces the footprint of the guarding system, compared to light curtains or scanners, and provides workers with better protection from application-driven hazards. Other product features include:

  • Standard size increased to 110" wide and 96" tall
  • Improved finger guard using a 40 oz. FR vinyl sewn-in loop design to eliminate pinch point
  • New brand cylinder and flange mount with center support
  • Improved sliding panel design for smoother operation
  • More options, including eliminating the toe gap to allow for lower stored panel heights
