A retrofit design, lightweight and safer to install

Every time you have to shut down your equipment for maintenance or repairs, your business suffers. Moulded Exciter Guards are built to last, so that your screens can keep doing what they are designed to do with increased efficiency and reliability.

When equipment degrades under regular wear and tear, you’re usually left with more problems than solutions. Decreased productivity and costs of maintenance and repair create monetary losses, but there’s also the hidden cost: safety. When replacing and repairing heavy equipment, it is all too easy for something to go wrong.

Our Moulded Exciter Guards are created with all of these struggles in mind.
