Safe-Guard Return Idler Guard Prevents Injuries


Allentown, PA – October 31, 2008: ASGCO has long recognized the importance of ensuring safety in the workplace. The lightweight, ASGCO SAFE-GUARD Return Idler Guard was designed to prevent injuries from pinch points and to catch the return idler if it should fall. Installation of SAFE-GUARD on your conveyor belt return idler helps to protect your workers from the hazard of contacting the exposed idler.

The durable fire retardant slotted cage is designed to prevent material build-up and for easy clean-up. Removing just 2 stainless steel pins to drop open the side of the cage, gives you full access to the roller and allows for ease of replacement and maintenance. The SAFE-GUARD’s universal mounting brackets are made from powder coated A-36 steel and can be used on CEMA B, C, D, E and F series idlers up to 7” in diameters and belt width up to 96” wide.
