Update on the new Slide-A-Matic guarding.

When a new product is released it is always interesting to track its acceptance in the marketplace and to see what changes customers are suggesting. Such has been the case with the new Slide-A-Matic guarding.

Our standard 76-inch high model was no sooner out of the gate when we were asked to come up with models that were 8-feet high and 42-inches low. That makes sense, of course, as both are fairly standard heights for industrial enclosures. We are prototyping these models now and I will keep you posted on their release dates.

The latest challenge has been to protect a span of 40-feet in an aircraft hangar. This is a difficult task for a panel gate that requires no track or suspension system; and that can be easily swung to the side by a single operator. Guess what? I knew all along we could do it.

I sincerely hope that those of you who follow are experiencing the same significant uptick in business that has occurred for us recently. America is on the move again and it is exhilarating to be part of that march forward.
