DIGGER GUARD, a pioneer in security and safety solutions for construction equipment, is gearing up to make its debut at ScotPlant 2024 with its line of newly enhanced protective products.

The firm will demonstrate new features and improvements to its award-winning Vandal Guard cab and windows protection kits, and the steel-surpassing capabilities of its Polymer Handrail systems.

Vandal Guards won the Best Security Initiative category at the Plantworx Innovation Awards 2023. The manufacturer explained that the patented Vandal Guards have undergone a ‘significant’ transformation, achieving a further 27% weight reduction and now featuring ‘premium’ stainless-steel fittings.

The show will also see the launch of the latest Vandal Guard innovation – an optional integrated beacon lighting system in its streamlined rooftop storage box. The weatherproof box is a secure storage solution for the panels when not in use.

For Polymer Handrails, DIGGER GUARD revealed it has ‘redefined’ the standards for handrails with polymer versions that are 75% lighter than steel yet exceed pull strength requirements. The handrails are described as corrosion-resistant, self-coloured, and don’t need coated or painted. International handrail patents are pending for DIGGER GUARD’s vibration dampening system that reduces part wear and replacement frequency.
