Ideal protection for any application or situation

Whether it be protective fences and machine housings for automated manufacturing processes or transparent partition systems for hygiene protection for reception desks or checkout areas – the flexible safety guard and partition system from RK Rose+Krieger meets the highest demands with regard to safety, individual design and functionality.

The standard-compliant, modular safety guards and partitioning devices from Minden have been in widespread use in industry for many years. The system is typically used as an enclosure for automated production processes to protect personnel and machines. The engineers in Minden design protective housings to suit the specific application and so that they are a match for the respective safety challenges and tailored perfectly to the given room. In the process, the modular construction of the system minimises the planning, engineering and installation requirement.

The basis for the safety guard system, which meets the requirements of the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC and standard EN ISO 14120:2015 (D), is a kit made of different aluminium clamping profiles, panels of wire mesh, polycarbonate, acrylic glass or Trespa and the appropriate clamping bars and feet for firmly anchoring the aluminium profile posts on the floor. Alternatively, the elements can be fastened to the machine itself. Special Click&Safe connection elements are used to securely connect the safety guard elements to the posts. They make it easier to replace the individual fields quickly for maintenance or whenever required.

Easy to clean and effective – RK hygiene protection

A special partition has recently been added to the protection system: the individually designable RK hygiene guard is made of easy-to-clean aluminium profiles and transparent polycarbonate partition panes, and is a stable and effective barrier to prevent airborne infection. The system can be installed flexibly and comprises five basic versions: quickly installed counter solutions, self-supporting stands and partitioning elements for installation on bars, walls or ceilings. This modular kit can be used to implement large partitioning systems for checkout areas and open plan offices quickly and easily.
