Beakbane Telescopic Springs, also known as spiral springs or spring guards, provide long life and maximum protection of your rods, shafts, and screws from chips and other destructive elements. An equally important use is as a safety barrier to seal off pinch points and other hazards to prevent operator injury.
Simple and effective these helical metal covers surround and protect critical cylindrical mechanisms with overlapping coils that seal out the contaminants while wiping away dirt and debris with each thrust. The spring action holds the unit in place as it expands and compresses between two parallel surfaces. Simple flanges may be used to position the cover, which is normally installed over the end of a rod, shaft or screw assembly. However, “open wound” models are available to be wound onto the rod, shaft or screw without the necessity of partially disassembling the host machine.
