Telescopic Guarding...



GUARD-TECH SPECIALISE IN THE MANUFACTURE AND REFURBISHMENT IN ALL TYPES OF BESPOKE AND OFF-THE-SHELF STEEL & ALUMINIUM TELESCOPIC GUARDING. WE FOCUS ON PROVIDING OUR CLIENTS WITH A FIRST CLASS PRODUCT AT COMPETETIVE PRIVES WITH A FAST TURNAROUND AND INSTALLATION THUS ENSURING MINIMUM DOWNTIME.

Telescopic steel covers provide durable protection of slideways and precision machine components from all types of chips and coolant. Optional components can be integrated to improve durability speed, and access to the machine.

At Guard-Tech we give upmost consideration to the quality/pricing ratio ensuring that our customers get the most from their investment.

We are always looking to improve upon the original design, where possible to extend the life of the guards. Modifications such as steel thickness, fitting of re-enforced cross members for load bearing and better quality brass interlocks, bearing strips and wipers/ shrouds are a few of the modifications that can be achieved to increase performance and life of the guards.

We design and manufacture new Telescopic Guarding from 3D Cad Design through to manufacture and installation to meet all Machine Tool applications no matter how complex covering all types of Machine Tooling irrespective of the original Telescopic Guard manufacturer.

To compliment our design and manufacture service we also provide a comprehensive Refurbishment Service, undertaken in our own workshops to bring badly worn and/or damaged Telescopic Guards back to 'as new' condition and a 24hr Emergency Breakdown Service whereby one of our engineers will attend site to carry out any repair/remedial work until a subsequent production window where refurbishment or replacement work can be carried out ensuring minimum downtime and lost production.

The quality of our work and reputation speak for themselves with over 5500 Telescopic Guards either manufactured or refurbished in the past 10 years.
