Frommelt Safety Products
Frommelt Safety’s Vertiguard Automated Barrier Panel 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 ideal for small interaction points with single or double robotic cells, part assembly, and conveyor openings. The Vertiguard reduces the footprint of the guarding system as compared to light curtains or scanners and provides workers with better protection from application-driven hazards. The vertically rising system also allows for overhead crane loading, and its simple pneumatic operation helps increase productivity. Vertiguard’s low-profile design helps prevent back injuries because it requires minimal reach-in to load parts.
