Gardtec plastic fan guardsHaving cooling fans for your electrical equipment, like the ones needed for computers and laptops, are necessary in making sure the equipment does not overheat. Overheating can cause a malfunction in your devices or even cause greater problems. Having a fan guard attachment also helps keep the inner components protected from dust and debris, while also keeping others protected from the moving parts inside the fan. The selection of plastic fan guards from GardTec are designed to fit a wide variety of fan sizes.

GardTec plastic fan guards are lightweight and provide a less expensive solution for cooling fans. They are easy to install, including push-on versions that do not need any hardware to mount. If a fan guard blocks too much air, it can lead to overheating, which is a cause of serious system problems. These problems can include such issues as shutdowns and data loss due to internal damage. These fan guards are made to keep noise levels down while still letting the optimum amount of air flow through. Being rated at UL 94V-0, they are tested to make sure they are flame resistant and able to suppress burning within 10 seconds.

The right fan guard can help to extend the life of a cooling fan and increase the energy efficiency. Always make sure that the dimensions of the fan guard correlate with the dimensions of the cooling fan. Plastic fan guards from GardTec are available online or over the phone though Major Electronix.
