The innovative UniGuard™ Machine Guard is used primarily to enclose a rotating coupling or V-Belt connecting the shafts of the driven equipment and the driver (usually an electric motor) to prevent harm to people working around the equipment. Made from sturdy polyethylene, these guards can be custom designed in any size–small or large – to cover the rotating shafts and drive components. The guards can be customized for users needing access doors for coupling maintenance (such as greasing), or with clear windows for viewing the rotating elements.
The UniGuard™ cannot rust and is not affected by the ultraviolet rays of the sun, so it can be used outside. This guard also can be used in chemical environments where higher priced stainless steel material had been required.
Designed for easy installation, the guards can be purchased with the proper diameter and style to cover a shaft, coupling or belt drive. Many of the direct drive guards are adjustable in length using common hand tools. The guards are split (clam shell like) so they can be installed and removed. Horizontal V-belt guards have slip off backs for easy removal.
Available in many standard sizes, but can be economically built for custom applications.
