Designed to prevent workers from being drawn into a moving return roller, the Martin Return Roller Guard is an economical way to raise safety awareness and reduce injuries. The solid upper section delivers pinch point protection, and the slotted lower area allows visual inspection while preventing contact with the roller.
Installation is straightforward, with brackets included to mount the guard directly to either the side or bottom of the stringer. Quick-release pins allow easy service, with side and bottom panels that swing open for cleaning or maintenance, and removable end plates provide access to roller bearings. The guards are designed to fit all major roll manufacturers’ sizes (CEMA C, D & E). Installation is recommended on all return rollers that are less than 7 feet from the ground, or where the roller is otherwise within reach of workers.
