Racking protection barriers or rack guards, are safety devices designed to protect pallet racking systems and the goods stored on them from potential damage caused by forklifts trucks or other equipment used in busy warehouses and storage facilities. These barriers help prevent accidents, reduce maintenance costs, and extend the life of the racking system.
These racking barriers are installed at the end of pallet racking aisles to create a physical barrier that prevents forklifts or other equipment from accidentally driving into the racking structure. End-of-aisle barriers are made of heavy-duty steel and are anchored securely to the floor.
Wrap around Post Protectors are installed around the front and side face of the upright posts to provide additional protection against impact. They help to shield the vulnerable parts of the racking from potential collisions, acting as a buffer between the forklift and the racking, absorbing and distributing the force of any collision.
Wire mesh backing is a protective mesh panel that can be attached to the back of the pallet racking system. The mesh provides a secure solution against products potentially becoming dislodged and acting as a danger to pedestrians enhancing safety on site as well as reducing damage to goods.
