Health and Safety – Rack Protection

The installation of racking upright protectors or column guards safeguards the uprights / frames in your pallet racking system. Racking frames are vulnerable to accidental fork lift truck damage, therefore rack protection via guards offers a safer working environment.

Pallet racking upright protection is a worthwhile investment. The cost from pallet racking damage can be up to £1000.00, whereas the cost of upright protection starts from less than £15 making them a worthwhile investment.

We recommend the ballistic grade polymer upright protection which is extremely durable and comes in a high visibility finish making it easy to see for picking and replenishing the pallets again minimizing damage.

We have fitted and supplied thousands of pallet racking upright guards in a wide range of warehouse and production facilities and customers have always been very pleased with these products often going on to buy further upright protection after a trial sample.
