Pallet racks work hard and take a beating, so it’s important to make sure you have the proper protection to extend the life of your rack and keep your staff safe!
We put together some of the most popular pallet rack protector products.
Rack Reinforcements are just as good as they sound. They’re added on uprights to provide extra bracing and stability. Reinforcing the uprights will increase the capacity. Often times customers will reinforce the first 4′ of the front column of the upright for additional forklift impact resistance. Rack reinforcement can be an insert like shown in picture below or we can weld a double column to the upright. They help to improve strength and reduce the chance of your rack buckling on impact. In fact, they give the rack 2 1/2 more times more impact resistance. This is especially important when you think about how much damage a forklift can do over time. Rack reinforcements can be added during production so you don’t have to lose any time!
Post Protectors are a must-have for rack protection. When your posts are left unprotected, your rack is vulnerable to rack failure. Overtime, repeated bumps and impacts can cause wear and tear on your racks. We have tons of different styles of post protectors, but no matter which you chose, they all help extend the life of your rack. Typically, they’re bolted to the floor, and they protect the areas most vulnerable to damage. Post protectors are an inexpensive way to save yourself a big bill and a lot of damage.
End of Aisle Protectors are another essential when it comes to protecting your pallet rack. The end of the aisle is a heavily trafficked area, and the risk of damage is high. End of aisle protectors are typically bolted to the floor for extra security. They save you time down the line by preventing you from having to repair a whole rack.
Guide Rails / Rub Rails help keep your forklifts a safe distance from your pallet rack. They’re laid on the floor around the rack and provide a buffer, which prevents accidents and impact. They can be used for a number of areas, but they’re especially effective for pallet rack protection!
Guard Rail protects pallet rack and personnel from dangerous warehouse equipment. It creates a protective barrier that prevents forklifts from coming into contact with work areas, equipment and storage racks minimizing the chance of dangerous accidents. Offered in single or double tier configurations and a variety of standard sizes. Can be designed to fit just about any space.
