Automotive production lines cannot afford lengthy shutdown periods to repair fallen equipment. Major automotive manufacturers, such as Jaguar Land Rover, depend on Guard load arrest to protect key points in the production line; their production engineers identified a risk of heavy equipment shutting-off during use, which could result in an uncontrolled fall to the workshop floor. Such a fall could cause severe production delays whilst the damage is repaired, not to mention risks to the operators who work near the equipment.

This is where Guard steps in. A Guard load arrestor positioned at just the right spot can automatically catch falling equipment, stopping it hitting the floor. Even better, the Guard's cable automatically extends and retracts, following the movement of the load. This means the factory equipment can move unimpeded, whilst always having back-up protection. Perfect.
