With its progressive 20-year relationship, ABB designated B&D Technologies as Distributor and Total Solution Provider for its Quick-Guard safety fence line. The industry-leading fence line merges the wisdom of two dynamic companies, ABB, a pioneering power and automation technology company and Jokab Safety, a leader in machine safety. Turn-key fencing systems from ABB Jokab Safety offer custom designs that are utilized in a multitude of applications to suit customer-specific needs. User-friendly, the fencing sections can be easily assembled by the customer.
B&D Technologies was a Jokab Safety distributor and fence integrator prior to ABB’s acquisition of Jokab Safety. Thanks to ABB’s safety fencing design software, SafeCAD, gone are the days of “erector set” designs. With complete understanding of the codes, risk assessments and integrations with PLCs and electronics, B&D Technologies designs complete fencing solutions compliant with the safety requirements of the user. Adding to the customization, the fencing is available as a kit or as a turn-key build-out solution. Quick-Guard fencing also features brackets that are pre-mounted with screws and nuts; mesh, solid or noise-reduction panels; rapid delivery timeline; and easy assembly, adjustment and modification.
B&D Technologies has been a top ABB Low Voltage (LVD), Medium Voltage Drive (MVD) and low voltage control (Thomas & Betts) distributor with comprehensive breadth and depth of ABB products. It features over 20 branch locations throughout the Southeast and two state-of-the-art engineering and testing labs specific to ABB, Thomas & Betts, Dodge and Baldor. The exclusive testing labs allow engineers the opportunity to provide valuable application engineering and pre-testing, ensure complete compatibility with other automation products and offer value-added customer training.
“B&D Technologies is not just an industrial distributor, we specialize in technology-driven products and turnkey solutions coupled with our robust in-house engineering expertise. ABB’s Quick-Guard safety fencing is a solid combination of these elements and provides our customers with the best in product technology, customized to their precise environment. We are pleased to add this line to our product offering,” said Benjamin Nations, vice president of B&D Industrial.
“Combining the in-house engineering expertise that B&D Technologies brings, along with the extensive line of machine safety products and their strategically located facilities, B&D Technologies is fully equipped to provide true single source solutions for any machine safety product,” said Richard Gibson, ABB product marketing manager for Jokab Safety Products.
