When you need to keep people out and property in, custom guarding and enclosures aid in damage protection and loss prevention. Physical and visual partitions set off important, delicate, and valuable property and assist with inventory controls. These barriers help keep your workplace safe, lean, and organized by quickly warning workers of hazardous areas or equipment, identifying areas accessible to people or those off-limits, and clearly showing storage locations.

Modular for Change

80/20 Inc. provides T-slot aluminum profiles and products to design custom ergonomic solutions for any industry. It is a modular option that allows you to create applications that fit your workforce and processes. Assembly and implementation are straightforward and only require simple hand tools.


Watch Your Step

Did you know that OSHA requires fall protection at elevations as low as four feet? Additionally, employers must design layouts that prevent workers from falling off elevated workstations. Frequently overlooked, OSHA necessitates that guarding be provided over dangerous machinery, regardless of the fall distance. The modular nature of 80/20 products provides a custom solution that is fast and straightforward to implement. Use T-slot profiles and products to provide interchangeable rail systems.

Fit and Function

Longevity of materials is an important factor in guarding equipment, along with flexibility for maintenance and redesign or expansion. 80/20 T-slot aluminum profiles offer a reconfigurable solution with durability and strength comparable to steel. The 2-degree drop-lock ensures secure connections that are vibration-resistant.
