Ex-Guard Industries – A Truly American Brand

Ex-Guard Industries – A Truly American Brand

Humble Beginnings

Ex-Guard®, is an American made product. A small team of friends, experienced in the front-end protection industry, envisioned a guard that would revolutionize the market. A guard made of more than just steel, one that could epitomize strength and redefine protection. This idea would then develop our 1/8” Corrosion Resistant Ex-Guard® patented PVC coating. A bonded layer would add durability that both complemented and protected the steel. Finally, a proprietary hinge mechanism which allows single or dual hand accessibility options.

The time, energy, and technology built into the Ex-Guard design would create a product with high-impact resistance, economical maintenance, and most importantly, protection for the driver.


About Ex-Guard

From this prototype design to a successful international company, Ex-Guard® Industries established a manufacturing facility in Des Moines, IA and introduced a line of guards to the North American trucking industry. A small dream that would move on to protect drivers, their trucks, and their lives. Our first and foremost objective is offering the right amount of coverage to keep drivers safe and trucks secure while on the road. Ex-Guard’s have the ability to sustain multiple wildlife collisions with little to no damage to the truck. For fleets, having a well-designed guard can help mitigate downtime expenses, loss of business opportunities, and overall truck repair expenses.
