5M Flex-Guard laser barriers

Laser Physics has introduced a new range of collapsible laser safety barriers from Kentek Corporation to complement the EverGuard and ServiceRight barriers it currently offers. With just five major parts, including pre-assembled laser blocking panels, the 5M Flex-Guard laser barriers are ready for use in less than five minutes. The barriers can be used stand-alone or linked together, are clean room friendly and have options for both high and low power lasers.
