Debris shields, also known as protective shields, provide a protective barrier between the test space and the operator. These may be necessary for materials that exhibit violent failures under test, such as composites, rebar, and cables.

Debris Shield with Sliding Door for Table Models

Depending on user-preference and footprint limitations, a sliding debris shield is available for table model universal testing systems. The sheet metal and polycarbonate shield encase the front of the test machine, separating the user from debris and moving parts while also giving excellent visibility. To access the test space, the sliding door is opened to the left and specimens and grips can be loaded through the 845mm tall and 440mm wide port. The debris shield can be equipped with an optional magnetic interlock which prevents tests from being started with the door open and can be configured to prevent all crosshead motion when the door is open.
