Larco White Paper Lays Out New Industrial Safety Mats to Step Up Foundry Safety

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (Oct. 3, 2017) – ATEK Access Technologies today released “Step Up Safety in Your Foundry,” a complimentary white paper from its Larco brand that reveals the need for a long-lasting solution to machine guarding needs. The white paper examines the dangers of operating heavy machinery and how the Larco industrial safety mats offer a safer solution.

“The foundry work environment is full of dangerous conditions and the metal plates used in machine guarding can often become worn out, causing them to malfunction,” said Scott Gardeen, senior product manager, ATEK Access Technologies. “Our Larco industrial safety mats are designed for reliability and durability in the harshest industrial environments.”

The white paper includes a case study discussing the risks of the old steel plates used in foundries, which became warped over time and stuck frequently. It highlights the improvements of the Larco mats, which are extremely durable, impact resilient, abrasion resistant, totally submersible and can withstand heavy forklift traffic, giving peace of mind to foundry workers.
