Guard rails are ideal for protecting pedestrian walkways, loading docks, production/shipping areas, assembly lines, pallet racks, and mezzanines. Guard rails are made of heavy-duty steel and are secured to the floor for added stability. Used guard rails from American Surplus Inc. come in a single post, double post, or rail style. They are an effective and inexpensive way to protect employees, work areas, and equipment. To protect columns, see column protectors or column guards, depending on your specific material handling needs.
Guard rails are designed to prevent and withstand impact from forklifts and other lift equipment or warehouse carts as they maneuver around your facility. With a heavy-duty steel design, guard rails can direct the flow of traffic and prevent damage caused to inplant offices, pallet racking, or other product by straying of forklifts or inventory as it is moved around the warehouse. American Surplus has several styles of used warehouse guard rail in stock in numerous lengths to provide added safety to any part of your facility.
There are many advantages to installing guard rails in your warehouse or shipping/storage facility. Guard rails help to separate workspaces from driving lanes designated for warehouse vehicles. They provide a physical barrier to protect workers, machinery, and other material handling equipment from forklifts and other powered warehouse vehicles. By installing guard rails you’ll be significantly reducing the chance of employee accidents and equipment damage.
