Ever-Guard laser protective curtains

Constructed from metal panels, the Ever-Guard ceiling mounted curtains from Laser Components are a diverse large area laser protection solution that provides the protection of a metal screen, with the flexibility of a curtain. The 25cm hinged aluminium panels safely absorb and dissipate both scattered and direct laser radiation of all wavelengths thanks to their unique EN 12254 certified honeycomb surface, suitable for use with both low power and high power laser applications.

The product can be customised to suit individual requirements, with specified heights, as well as L, U and interlocking configurations available. There is also the option to integrate laser protective windows into the panels if required.
