Guarda Group is proud to announce their new award of “Most Innovative Product – Industry Choice” for their Guarda Edge Powercutter.
In attending The World of Concrete Trade show in January, Guarda Group took home the award for the Dust Control & Accessories Category.
The World of Concrete is the concrete and masonry industries global showcase. Host to over 1500 exhibitors and 60,000 attendees in January this year. The events awards on offer aim to celebrate the most innovative technologies for that year. With many of the world’s largest manufacturers entering to claim the highly sought after title.
The Guarda Edge Powercutter is a unique concrete cutting saw that uses Guarda’s very own patented technology to control silica dust in ways that their competitors cannot match. Independent silica dust testing has revealed levels so low, they were below the laboratory level of detection.
Respirable Silica Dust can lead to silicosis and lung cancer. Silicosis is now receiving global attention, and awareness of this hazard is growing. In the US & the UK, the regulators have lowered the allowable industry limits making it very tough for conventional equipment to comply. In Australia, 100 stonemasons have recently been diagnosed with silicosis, with doctors stating that this is just the tip of the iceberg. A federal crackdown is looming as the industry wakes up to realisation that current controls are not adequate. This has created a big opportunity for Guarda.
Guarda Group will launch the Edge Powercutter in April/May. The industry is keenly awaiting the release of this product and they are currently signing up distributors in the US, UK, Australia & NZ.
