Barriers & Protective Guarding

Physical Barriers

WireCrafters-Machine Guard2Wire partitions from WireCrafters are a simple and effective way to protect personnel from the dangers posed by automated, mechanical, or hazardous equipment and areas. These barriers are generally used to segregate danger zones. System versatility allows easy integration of access doors or material handling openings with system controls.

This guard is always on duty and unaffected by power outages or electrical problems. Also doubles as a potential safety net by containing objects ejected by a malfunctioning robot. Crimped and woven wire mesh is resilient to dings while retaining it’s shape, appearing new for a long time.




All sorts of things need protection, especially if they are in a forklift lane. Guardrails from HandleIt (or one of our other vendors) provide a safe, physical barrier that protects not only equipment, but desks, walkways, machinery and even bathrooms from forklift accidents and vehicle impacts.







Driver Cages/Mantraps

Unauthorized individuals in your facility can open your organization up to theft or liability due to injury. Installing a driver access cage, or mantrap, can help avoid this. A driver cage allows you to monitor and control access to your facility. A service window with shelf for paperwork pass-through; coded entry lock; remote control electric latch release; and full-width, exit-only push bar are features that can be added. With the right features, a driver cage entryway can also serve as an employee entrance or emergency exit.
