Engineers at Alcoa were charged with the task of procuring area guarding for their Lafayette, IN aluminum fabrication facility. Specifically, they needed visually distinctive safety barriers that did not obscure the view of the guarded equipment. Alcoa worked with local representatives of SpaceGuard Products to provide a cost effective solution. The result was a safety barrier coupling SpaceGuard’s SG2000 versatile mesh enclosures and a newly developed bolt-on component, VAS (Visual Alert Splice) kits.
Constructed from 1” x 1 ⅝” steel channel, VAS kits easily attach to all SpaceGuard area guarding and secure storage products making them an economical alternative to custom finishing an entire project application. As an independent component, retrofitting existing material is just as hassle free.
When asked how Alcoa felt about the final installation, Maintenance Supervisor, Marks Mays, responded, "The perimeter fencing is easy to install .. looks great .. and it’s maintenance free. Being an old maintenance guy you got to like that."
