In 1988 Tanmill developed the first plastic vandal guard to meet the needs of the
construction industry, who wanted a stronger, lighter and more durable vandal guard
than the traditional steel guards. The guards were quickly adopted by the major manufacturers
and their UK importers as being the industry standard for vandal guards. Since then
Tanmill has continued to develop the guards, introducing our unique "snap lock" system
to remove the problems associated with the use of padlocks. Roof rails have been
introduced, utilising existing fixing points on the cab roof to mount the rail, instead
of the more traditional method of pop riveting channel onto the cab. Tanmill continues
to develop it's products to meet the ever growing expectation of it's customers.
Concentrating on its established market sector Tanmill has also developed a range
of Demolition/Rock guards that provide extreme levels of cab protection for machines
working in quarries and on demolitions projects.
Tanmill no longer only supplies to the UK market but also exports to other European
