Welcome to FLANGEGUARDS, leading supplier of pipe safety shields

Safety Shields also known as flange guards are used in a variety of industries, where their primary application is the prevention of harmful spray-outs and mist formation from failing pipe joints, of toxic, corrosive and dangerous liquids such as acid, oil or steam.

Pipe joint failures have been responsible for a large number of high profile industrial incidents around the world. Acid, oil and steam jet spray-outs have resulted in many severe personal injuries, either directly or through consequent fires and explosions. Industry regulators have recognised the importance of shielding pipe joints (flanges, valves, couplings, hoses) to prevent jet leaks or the formation of explosive mist. Such spray-outs can have catastrophic effects, in many cases resulting in fire or explosions causing considerable plant down time, capital expenditure and even loss of life.  NFPA 850

Safety or Spray Shields offer the last line of defence. They are not designed to contain the leak indefinitely, but to prevent the harmful spray out. See how our safety shields work or email sales@flangeguards.com if you require further information.
