Roll Up Machine Guard



The Roll Up Machine Guard helps prevent operators from getting their hands or feet inside of the machines which they are working near. The guarding also contains flying debris which could potentially injure someone. Rated for both low and high duty applications the retractable machine covers have countless uses.

Custom Made For All Applications


Custom Made to Order

Each industrial roller guard is designed per application. We take into consideration the environment, duty cycle, and intended use to make sure we provide the correct roller. The roll up guards come in 3 different roller assemblies and about 6 different shade materials.


Wide Variety of Applications

These guards un-roll as the machine raises, and they retract as the machine lowers. The roll up safety guards can be attached in a variety of methods and have potential uses for countless applications. They also provide a very small foot print which is ideal where a traditional bellows fold would be too large.


Industrial Grade

Our retractable safety rollers are fabricated using the best roller springs to eliminate rollers which may fall apart in the field due to spring exhaustion. Your industrial roller guard will be designed and fabricated to be used in the harshest conditions which are present in most industrial applications.

Roller Models



For slower moving components the standard duty roller guard is ideal. This roller is a reliable economical solution for any applications where the duty cycle is within about 10,000 cycles. Used on equipment and machines that will not cycle consistently.

Optional Features


High Temp Shades

Standard material is 18oz vinyl. However, for any environment hotter than 140 degrees Fahrenheit we use materials that can withstand the higher temperatures. Ratings of up to 1200°F.


Shade Placement

If you require a very long extension then we might have to use a roller that is wider than the shade to accommodate the internal spring. If this is necessary then we can offset the shade anywhere on the roller as shown here.


Steel Case

The steel case surrounds the roller and protects if from debris and accidental contact with other objects that might damage it. This can also feature a brush wiper. Please note that this triples the cost of the unit.


All Clear Shades

Some applications require a line of sight into the machine when the industrial roller shade is extended. We can provide an all clear material or a standard shade with a view port window.


Shade Mounts

The most common end of shade mount is a pocket with a flat steel bar that you bolt to your machine. Other styles are shown above. These are only available on the heavy and super duty models.



Overview: The standard material we quote for
industrial roll up guards. Used in the vast majority
of applications as it is very strong and reinforced
with a polyester scrim. The most economical
and ideal material unless you have high heat or
a high abrasion environment.

Material: 18oz Vinyl
Color: Yellow, Black, Blue, Red and Green
Chemical Resistance: Yes
Heat Range: Up to 150°F
Price: $


Overview: A step up from Vinyl is the neoprene
line of shades. This material provides excellent tear
strength and superior resistance to abrasion. It
also has a higher heat rating at 212° F

Material: 16 oz Neoprene Coated Nylon Fabric
Color: Black
Chemical Resistance: Yes
Heat Range: Up to 212°F
Price: $
