  • Product benefits:
  • The modular design reduces the required planning and installation work
  • Standardised elements ensure that the systems can be upgraded easily, even after years
  • Attractive aluminium-look design
  • Quick and safe assembly/disassembly of the module surfaces thanks to Click&Safe connections

The ever-increasing automation of manufacturing processes and plants means that protecting people from sources of danger is growing in importance.

Safety guards and machine enclosures are indispensable. The RK safety guard system meets the highest demands when it comes to safety, flexibility and customised design.
The BLOCAN® safety guard features a modular design which reduces the required planning, construction and installation work to a minimum.
RK safety guards comply with the new Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC. Using special Click&Safe connection elements, the safety guard sections are fastened quickly and securely to pillars made from BLOCAN® aluminium profiles, which meet the legal requirements for safety guards.

The BLOCAN safety guard has a grid design and therefore reduces the effort required from the user in planning, construction and assembly to a minimum.
The RK protection system complies with the new Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC. Using special Click & Safe connection elements, the safety guard elements are fixed quickly and securely to pillars made from BLOCAN® aluminium profiles which fulfil the legal requirements for safety devices.
 

Our flexible safety guard system can be tailored to suit the individual machine/plant

RK safety guard systems have no set dimensions. The size and layout of individual elements and the overall system is decided primarily by the customer, who is in possession of all the data concerning distances to sources of danger. The DIN EN ISO 13857 standard for upper and lower limbs is authoritative when it comes to defining safety distances. The optimum enclosure is planned on the basis of the type of panel and distance from the source of danger. RK Rose+Krieger offers dimensioning of the safety guard elements and posts in millimetre increments, which makes the system extremely flexible and adaptable.

The space for the safety guard system around the machine, plant or danger area can thus be utilised optimally.  

It's so easy, fast and safe to work with Click & Safe:

The safety guard elements are fastened quickly and reliably to supports made of BLOCAN® aluminium profiles using special Click&Safe connection elements. Depending on their application, the posts themselves can be fixed firmly to the floor using special feet or connected directly to the machines. The connection elements not only facilitate assembly, they also offset small angle deviations and height differences between the posts and the guard elements. They form one of very few systems of their kind to fully comply with Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC. This is because, even though no special tools are required for installing the guard, it can only be dismantled using a special RK unlocking tool.
