X-Guard machine guard consists of mesh panels made from metal wire. That’s a fair amount of wire in the ten years that Axelent have been supplying X-Guard.
Equivalent to six Tour de France races or three walks backwards and forwards along the Great Wall of China. Alternatively, a half orbit around the earth or, if we stand it on its head at the manufacturing plant in Hillerstorp, more than halfway to the moon. 20,000 km of metal wire. If we instead focus on the panels and put them end to end they will protect the whole of Sweden. From Treriksröset in the north to Smygehuk in the south.
X-Guard’s penetration has been enormous and, putting aside the comparisons for a moment, it is safety we are dealing with. On a global basis.
