Lift Table Skirts are a long-standing solution for providing protection to dangerous scissor arms. AKON provides these lift table guards to manufacturing plants all over the world. The AKON industrial Lift Table Skirts are made from a heavy-duty 22 ounce fire retardant vinyl. The lift table skirting protects operators from the hazardous pinch points inside of scissor lift tables. The lift table guarding is quick to install and it is available in almost any size.
Standard vinyl material will hold up to hot flying sparks. Keep in mind there are different kinds of sparks. There are sparks from grinding metal which the standard Vinyl skirts work great for, and then there are sparks which come from other work processes which are very large and sometimes molten. Light welding which is not taking place on top of the lift table should not damage a vinyl skirt. If a hot spark hits it, then it may burn a small hole in it but more than likely bounce off. It will not start fire as it is fire retardant. For heavy welding applications, you would want our silicone coated fiberglass material we use for weld slag. It will not be damaged from welding. It is about double the price however.
FDA Food Grade Lift Table Skirts
For food grade lift table bellows skirting that meets FDA requirements we have a AS/NSZ 4020:22005 & SI-5452 made for safe contact with food. This is Title 21, SI 5113 certified. This material can be stitched or it can be heat welded (as shown below) for an even cleaner fabrication.
