Conveyor Return Idler Guard Improves Worker Safety

ASGCO’s lightweight SAFE-GUARD return idler guard is designed to prevent injuries from conveyor-related pinch points and to catch the return idler if it should fall. The original SAFE-GUARD line, which works with CEMA B, C, and D series idlers up to 7-in. diameter, was recently expanded to include CEMA E and F return rollers. The transverse support of the new heavy-duty SAFE-GUARD is angled to provide a more robust design that prevents bending and is sized to fit over CEMA E and F return roller brackets. Both the mounting brackets and end plates are made from powder coated A- 36 steel. The durable UHMW slotted cage is designed to prevent material build-up and for easy clean-up. Removal of two stainless steel pins drops the side of the cage open for full access to the roller. SAFE-GUARD’s are adjustable for a wide range of idler sizes and belt widths up to 96 in.
