Customized Solutions

  • Industrial Frame Guarding
  • Solidworks CAD Solutions
  • 5S Projects

Some of our enclosure solutions include:

Acoustic Barriers - used to reduce noise from air compressors and other equipment and protect workers from long term hearing damage.

We use adhesive foams affixed to the inside of the required barrier design to block out sound creating a more user friendly work environment.

Entry Barriers - for Driver security and Warehouse access control.

Creating a safe and secure warehouse environment for your staff and visitors is a requirement for every business.  Entry access barriers allow you to secure your inventory and ensure delivery drivers have a safe place to wait while loading and unloading.

Access Controlled Enclosures - for Tool Cribs or to protect high value or sensitive inventory.

Operating inventory needs to be kept secure.  If automated dispensing systems are not an option for your business, consider added an access controlled enclosure in your warehouse to store hazardous, valuable, or easily pilfered inventory.

Welding Barriers - Modular or fixed barrier options to help shield workers from weld flash.

Warehouse Office Enclosures - to provide temporary or permanent office space or inspection area in your warehouse.

Manufacturing area Perimeter Barriers - to safeguard workers against debris or coolant spray from machinery.

Why choose a barrier guard?
