Improve Safety with Conveyor Belt Return Idler Cage

Safe Guard Belt Idler Cage

To ensure safety in the workplace, ASGCO has developed the Safe-Guard return idler cage to protect workers and provide an affordable and durable solution for guarding needs at a belt conveyor.

The return idler cage is designed to catch the return idler from falling onto unsuspecting workers or equipment, preventing injuries and down time. The cage is of robust construction, made of durable powder coated steel and does not require welding. The open slot design prevents material from building up. To install and remove the cage for belt maintenance is easy using the mounting kit provided, which includes beam clamps, links and adjustable chains. The conveyor return idler cage is available in various sizes to fit most belt conveyors.

Complies with MSHA Title 30;
56.14110 (Flying of falling material)
56.114112 (Guard Construction)
56.14107 (Moving machine parts)
75.1722 (Mechanical equipment guards)

Meets OSHA Requirements 1910.219 – for mechanical power – transmission apparatus and 56.14107 for moving machine parts.
