Major sources of racking system failure are due to vehicle collisions, uneven system bases, and poor installation or construction. Pallet racking protectors are the best way for preventing damage from warehouse vehicle, expensive maintenance expenses, and injury to employees.
Pallet rack column or frame protectors are designed to minimize damage to racking columns from forklift and warehouse vehicle impacts. There are several types and sizes of pallet rack frames: cold rolled steel and structural steel frames. Both require protection even though structural columns are more resistant to industrial vehicle damage. Repeated impacts from industrial vehicles can compromise the structural capacity and rigidity over time.
Repeated impacts could even lead to a rack collapse. Protectors are positioned either in front of column and lagged to the floor or bolted to the column. They provide a buffer between the hard-hitting industrial vehicles and the upright column.
