Protected workshop

Ten years ago a lifechanging event took place at Axelent – X-Guard saw the light of day! Today, X-Guard stretches this far from Hillerstorp in Småland, Sweden.

X-Guard's product assortment

Immeasurable

X-Guard machine guard consists of mesh panels made from metal wire. That’s a fair amount of wire in the ten years that Axelent have been supplying X-Guard. Equivalent to six Tour de France races or three walks backwards and forwards along the Great Wall of China. Alternatively, a half orbit around the earth or, if we stand it on its head at the manufacturing plant in Hillerstorp, more than halfway to the moon. 20,000 km of metal wire. If we instead focus on the panels and put them end to end they will protect the whole of Sweden. From Treriksröset in the north to Smygehuk in the south.

X-Guard’s penetration has been enormous and, putting aside the comparisons  for a moment, it is safety we are dealing with. On a global basis.

A nuts and bolts design

X-Guard development has been based on three main criteria: 

Flexibility. Speedy fitting. Compliance with all conceivable safety norms. 

The result is a smart system with myriad benefits. This 10-year-old has certainly made an impression while contributing to a safer world. Axelent looks back in satisfaction at what has been and with excitement at what lies ahead.

Happy Birthday X-Guard!
