Machine perimeter guarding modular system
Folding Guard’s Saf-T-Fence machine perimeter guarding modular system offers a customized alternative to permanent walls
Folding Guard has improved their Saf-T-Fence Machine Perimeter Guarding modular systems. A standard system consists of posts, panels, doors and hardware, and the company offers ample options in each. There are three post heights, six styles of doors, and over 30 pre-fabricated wire mesh panels and accessories. All bolt together, and are built for exact fit and easy assembly.
Saf-T-Fence’s mesh openings, heights, clearances and tolerances can all help companies meet OSHA, ANSI, CSA, and EN safety regulations.
Folding Guard has also updated Saf-T-Fence partitions, a low-cost alternative to building permanent walls. Each panel is built on a tough, 1-1/2” x 1-1/2” x 14-gauge steel frame. Wire mesh is securely welded at each intersection, creating rectangular openings. Saf-T-Fence partitions deliver security, visibility, and flexibility.
Due to the nature of modular systems, configuring a custom solution is simple to install and versatile enough to expand easily. Should floor plans change, they can be easily relocated and reinstalled in any space. Options are available in doors, locks, colors, custom sizes and configurations.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
