Authorized Parker IPS Design Center

Let us help you design your perfect solution 

By listening and understanding your situation and needs, we can apply our expertise to deliver exactly the solution you need, even if you weren’t sure what that is. We also understand safety regulations, so we can be sure that any machine guarding solution we put in place for you will conform to the proper standard. 

We can even accommodate non-traditional requests, such as nickel plating and others, if your application requires it. So don’t hesitate to reach out to us with your nonstandard requests and we will see what we can do. 

If you already have a design drawn out and need to talk to us about getting it manufacturedlearn more about our extruded aluminum manufacturing capabilities.

On-site survey 

We know that what works on paper may not exactly translate to real life, so even if we spend hours pouring your over designs and specs, we still might miss something critical. To correct this, we come out to your facility, walk the floor and inspect the area and machines our solution will apply to. Seeing the operating environment for ourselves allows us to anticipate circumstances that the designs and specs of the machine can’t tell us. 

We can get you up and running quickly 

We keep an extensive inventory of the most commonly used parts for t-slot extruded aluminum framing systems, which helps us get your solution built rapidlyWe have a good relationship with our suppliers and can get any additional parts or materials quickly. For simple projects, we can get you a completed solution as quickly as two weeks. Other, more complicated projects may take up to eight weeks. 

Emergency requests 

At Elect Air, we understand that sometimes circumstances such as workplace accidents or changing OSHA regulations may cause a shutdown of your machine or facility until proper guarding can be installed. Because of this, we do accept and do our best to accommodate emergency requests for machine guarding, which can typically be build and shipped in less than a week, depending on other projects in progress in our facility. 


Depending on the solution, the finished product will arrive in one of two ways: Fully-built or kitted. Smaller solutions will be built in-house and shipped to you as a complete unit ready for use or installation. Larger pieces, however, may have to be provided as a kit for you to assemble on-site.  

Take a look at a few of the many examples of custom t-slot solutions below: 

Machine Guarding 

Machine safeguarding is a common use of t-slot aluminum. Elect Air most commonly offers a clear material, Plexiglas, polycarbonate or acrylic, or vinyl coated wire mesh, which is more akin to a cage or fence. However, we can accommodate other materials if necessary to the operation. For example, a past project included using a specially-treated colored glass to contain the potentially damaging beam from a laser. 

Custom Machine bases and machine frames 

The nature of the t-slot aluminum framing gives it the ability to bear extreme weight. For example, a customer used an extruded frame to support thick granite slabs weighing up to 3,000-4,000 pounds. Our custom machining capabilities allow us to make anchors for your machine base should you need to secure the frame to the ground. If you need a mobile base, we can accommodate that we can install casters that allow your machine to either sit on the ground or ride on wheels. 

Work Stations and work cells 

T slot extruded aluminum framing systems aluminum and its accessories can be designed with your space, tool and process needs in mind, so you get the perfect industrial work station. We can integrate many different features including anti-static matting, lighting options, bins or containers, tool mounting, etc. Since we custom machine parts at our facility, we can accommodate most requests for mounting.
