Is Your Guillotine Up To Health & Safety Standards For The New Year??

Has your paper guillotine been regularly serviced to meet Health & Safety standards? By law, your electric guillotine must have a 6 month inspection by a qualified & certified guillotine engineer. Elmstok offer this professional service on most guillotine models, depending on age, including the IDEAL and EBA range.

To ensure your guillotine complies with everything that HSE requires (please click this web-link to download the latest report from HSE website -, you must have a 6 month service inspection by a qualified and certified guillotine engineer.

This is to ensure that you, as an employer, are fully covered and not liable should an accident ever occur (although, more importantly, the risk factor of an accident occurring is reduced significantly if your guillotine is regularly serviced). Just like a MOT on your car, a guillotine requires a health check.

We offer UK nationwide coverage for both manual and electric IDEAL/EBA (Krug & Priester German manufactured) guillotine models, if they have been manufactured from 1995 onwards.

We offer different levels of guillotine service maintenance to suit your specific needs, whether you are a light-user or heavy-user.
