Conveyor Guards

The Martin® Conveyor Guards improve worker safety. The mesh panel guards conform to OSHA/MSHA standards and prevent worker exposure to conveyor nip points and pinch point hazards.

Features and Benefits:

  • Mesh guards allow for inspection while keeping workers safely away from moving parts and pinch points.
  • Conforms to OSHA 29 CFR 1910.217 when installed with a minimum of 5.50 in. between guard opening and hazard.
  • Laser cut panels don't present the opportunity for broken welds or sharp edges commonly seen with expanded metal guards.
  • Rugged 11 gauge steel provides greater strength, durability, and reliability than lighter-weight metals and plastic.
  • Wedge clamps allow panels to be removed and reinstalled quickly.
  • Modular design installs on supplied angle iron structure and does not need to attach to conveyor equipment.


  • Guards are available in several sizes and can be used in a variety of combinations to fit almost any application. Systems can be easily expanded or relocated as needed.
  • Single Wedge Clamp, Double Wedge Clamp or Wedge Bolt available

Conveyor Guards Drastically Reduce Risk Of Injury
The mine handles over 300 tons of crushed taconite per hour. Ore was continuously falling off of the belt, creating a safety hazard and putting workers in danger. The material spillage created the need for cleanup which is a dangerous maintenance task to perform since most conveyor accidents happen while performing maintenance and lubricating or checking the conveyor.

Conveyor Guards Improve Worker Safety
A plant had safety guards installed around the tail pulleys on some of its conveyors, fabricated with a heavy structural plate attached to the base of the conveyor frame. The main problem was their excessive weight and the difficulties encountered when they needed to be removed. This extended the time needed to service the pulleys and created a greater risk of injury or accident.
