Protective Shield for Testing Machines

Safety in the lab starts with a protective shield or debris shield.  The shield consisting of a fixed side and a hinged door side can be custom designed to fit any and all testers made by Instron™, MTS™, Thwing Albert™, Zwick™, Tinius Olsen™ and others.  It places a protective shield between the operator and the breaking test specimen.  The shield is constructed of shatterproof clear polycarbonate surrounded by aluminum framing.  The door is fitted with a latch that can be configured with an interlock to help protect the user from moving parts on the test frame.
