SMITHFIELD, R.I., Sept. 19, 2012 — The patent-pending HSP Laser-Gard Barrier System from Honeywell Safety Products offers a customizable way to securely enclose a laser setup on an optical table, enhancing experimental conditions while safeguarding personnel from exposure to laser radiation. The flexible, modular system is easy to install and can be adjusted to the exact size of the optical table. Each panel is equipped with a safety locking mechanism that prevents unintended access and consequent exposure to laser radiation. It incorporates a visual indicator (lock indicator label) that clearly identifies whether or not the panel is properly closed. Access to the optical table remains quick and easy by simply flipping down a side panel, but it must be a conscious action. The system, certified to EN 12254, guarantees cable access around the perimeter of the optical table. It fixes securely around the outer edge, without using any of the holes in the table or taking up additional space. The entire width and length of the optical table remain available for the experiment.
