What is this part called?

Hi all,
one of my kids MTBs has a protective bracket around the rear mech, obviously to protect the derailleur if the bike is dropped on its side - I'd like to fit one on my other kids bikes, but I have no idea what it's actually called. I've googled extensively using "rear derailleur protection bashguard" etc etc, but to no avail.

The bracket in question is mounted on the drive train side rear axle between the dropout and the axle nut and rises upwards then outwards and downwards to form a protective U-shaped cage on the outside of the mech.

Any help in putting a name to it, which would allow me to locate one online, would be much appreciated.
