Custom Foot Protectors/ Foot Shields are designed to provide the ultimate protection to the most vulnerable part of the wire containers – the feet.

We have had customers that have come to us complaining that the feet on their wire warehouse baskets have been damaged by lift trucks. Even customers who have added heavy duty feet have in some cases experienced damage. Sometimes their fork lift drivers are to blame but in any case it is an issue we wanted to address – and solve.

A wire basket foot protector acts similar to a post protector on a pallet rack upright. It is a large solid piece of metal that acts as a protector or deflector that prevents forks of a forklift from bending the feet. Unlike the heavy duty foot option, it is inset within the foot print of the basket and doesn’t extend outward putting it further in harm’s way.

Another major advantage to the Foot Protector (AKA Foot Shield) is that it secures baskets while in the stacked position. The formed metal shield keeps baskets fixed to one another when collapsed and stacked preventing them from falling over. This safety feature could prevent accidents.

When customers buy a custom basket the invest a lot of money and want that basket to perform and last for many years. We have customers that have used their wire containers for over 15 years or more. That is service that is appreciated. That is why we have introduced wire containers with feet shield/ Feet protectors.

Next time¬† you order custom wire baskets ask for the foot shield or foot protectors! It’s an affordable wire basket option or accessory that will add many years to the life of your wire baskets.
