Machine Guard Maintenance Guidelines

Guards should be inspected as part of the machine maintenance schedule.

A guard should be replaced if there are:

  • Visible cracks or tearing
  • Bulges or dents from impact
  • Holes (unless provided by the manufacturer or for mounting purposes)

Guards should be cleaned with a nonabrasive plastic cleaner such as SlideĀ® Plastic Cleaner with FOAMaction.

Guards should never be cleaned with ammonia based cleaning products (such as glass cleaner).

Yellowing of PETG (transparent) guards is not a priority concern as the guards are manufactured from PETG plastic, not polycarbonate.
