Introducing Macguard, the permanent, free standing guard rail system.
The JMAC Safety Sytems Macguard product has been designed for use in the construction and scaffolding industry. The flat base, minimal trip hazard system is fully manufactured in the UK. Like we do with all of our products, we’ve researched and tested our Macguard to ensure we’re offering the best specification on the market.
Tested to allow upright spacing at 2.47m and up to 3m centres, it comes with pre-cut size tubes/ledgers, which makes the system modular. There is no need to set out the bases prior to installation, as the pre-cut tube designates where your next base is to be situated.
Macguard is sleeveless, saving customers money in labour costs which is unlike other systems on the market. It comes complete with end caps and rubber mats already applied to the system, which also helps reduce labour costs. Macguard can be supplied with company branded logo end caps, so that your firm’s brand is visible after installation.
Our bespoke quotes are based on what service you require. Please see the various options below:
Full Contracting – We provide a full contracting service which includes the supply, hire, installation, and dismantling of the system in one price per m2 for a set time period*. JMAC will manage the allocation and movement of materials on site, leaving all work areas clean and tidy before vacating site. Our trained supervisors will visit site to ensure the standards are maintained. We provide this service within the NE, NW or within one hour of our Stockton On Tees depot. However, we work with a selective group of strategic partners who are based around the UK who can offer the service levels required – Please get in touch and we will recommend the closest one to you.
*Additional hire charges are incurred per week thereafter, should the hire time be exceeded.
Hire only – We will deliver allocated materials to site specific to your needs. On delivery we will train your workforce/operatives on how to erect and dismantle the Macdeck System safely, and how to store and manage the equipment. A Macdeck certificate is issued once the trainer has evaluated competency levels. Price will be based on a weekly hire rate per m2 and we will collect the kit upon project completion.
Labour only** – If you have purchased or hired our Macdeck system, we can provide a labour only option where our fully trained Macdeck installers will attend your site to erect/dismantle and safely store the system.
Hire and Labour** – A set allocation of materials will be delivered to site. On delivery, the hire will commence for the agreed duration. This acts as the hire element of works.
In geographical areas or specialist jobs where JMAC can provide labour, a fixed labour cost will then be agreed to run alongside the hire agreement. This hire/labour option will provide the client with a supply and fit service undertaken by our knowledgeable and experienced install teams.
Purchase – Our Macdeck system is available to purchase either Mac branded or Bespoke branded (with your company logo). Prices are subject to volume, location and minimum order quantities where applicable.

** This option is dependent on location or specified jobs, we currently provide this service in NE, NW, Cumbria & South Scotland. We’re constantly growing and evolving, so we always try to be flexible with our clients – If you would require this service but your location is not listed, please give us a call to see how we may be able to assist with this.
We will attend a pre-start meeting between the client and our experienced operations team. This meeting will discuss your project programme, time frames and needs, you will receive our operations & maintenance manual, RAMS, booking in procedures training manual, and other supporting documentation. Going forward from this, you can then book in your first plots with our operational admin team and our trained installers will attend site as and when required.
A specific service is tailored to the needs of each client, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org or call our office on 01642 563696.
Upon each erection and dismantle, a handover certificate is signed by the JMAC installer and a member of the site team. This handover certificate is a legal document to provide proof that, at handover stage, the system is fit for purpose and in safe working order as per manufacturers guidelines. A copy of this handover is retained onsite for their records and a second copy is returned to the office for payment evidence.
We’re always on the lookout for fresh and talented individuals to join our ever-growing team. Please take a look at our Careers Page for more information.
