wire fan guards manufacturers in China

Types of Wire Fan Guards:

  1. Flat Guards: These are simple, flat wire grilles that cover the fan. They provide basic protection and are typically used for standard fans in household or office environments.
  2. Domed or Rounded Guards: These have a curved shape that extends outward from the fan, offering protection while allowing for greater airflow. They are often used for larger industrial fans where high air volume is required.
  3. Plastic-Coated Guards: These are wire guards that have been coated with plastic (often PVC) to prevent corrosion and electrical conductivity. The coating also softens the edges of the wire, reducing the risk of cuts or scrapes upon contact.
  4. Electroplated Guards: Wire guards that have undergone an electroplating process, such as with zinc or chrome, to provide a corrosion-resistant finish and a more aesthetic appearance.
  5. Mesh Guards: These feature a tighter wire mesh rather than larger gaps between wires. They provide finer protection against smaller objects and are often used in applications where debris is a concern.
  6. Cylindrical Guards: Designed for axial fans, these guards are cylindrical and fit around the sides of the fan as well as over the front, offering comprehensive protection.
  7. Custom Guards: For special applications, custom wire fan guards can be designed and manufactured to fit specific dimensions and protection requirements.
