Service-Right barrier system

The Service-Right barrier system from Laser Components was designed from the ground up to cater for on-site laser engineers. Instead of needing to close an entire workspace while servicing a laser machine, engineers can now erect a temporary laser barrier to complete their work without inconveniencing customers. The Service-Right barrier can withstand up to 250W/cm² incident laser energy and consists of three 3 x 6.5 feet connected panels which can be collapsed into a travel-ready bag.
