Lift Table Guards – Safety and Lift Table Bellows
Why use a safety lift table guards?
Sure you can have a lift table without a safety guard or bellow, but why risk your employees’ safety with the dangerous pinch-points in the moving scissors?
A safety lift table guards (also known as lift table bellow, accordion skirting, or scissor lift table guard) comply with the OSHA specifications to keep operators safe and prevent injuries as well as hydraulics free from derby. This means less maintenance and more productivity!
How a lift table guard is mounted
Accordion lift table guards typically mount on the outside of the platform, however, the convolutions/folds would fall either under the lift or outside. When quoting we ask if you are requiring an inside or outside mount, however, we are really asking if you want the folds to fall under that platform of the lift table or outside the platform. Internal mounting or beveled toe mounting is typically for lifts operated in a pit or limited space around lift table. For inside mount the base of the lift table must be smaller than platform size allowing clearance for table to freely raise and collapse without pinching or hitting skirting.
In addition to standard flat bar mounting, our lift table guards can be used with Velcro®. The Velcro® Mounting loop is sewn to the lift table guard itself and a pressure-sensitive hook is applied to the table lift. Velcro® mounted lift table guards can easily be removed for table lift cleaning and maintenance.
Outside vs. inside mounting depends on where the convolutions fall; outside of the lift table or inside/flush with the lift table.
