About Warehouse Guard Rails

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 officespallet 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.

Places Guard Rails Should Be Installed in a Warehouse/Shipping Facility:

  • End of Pallet Racking
  • Around Machinery
  • Shipping Area
  • Production Area
  • Inplant Offices
  • Employee Walkways
  • Workstations
  • Storage Facilities

All used guard rails are inspected for damage prior to shipment to ensure that they are in excellent working condition and that safety will never be compromised. Contact a member of our sales team to learn more about our current inventory of used guard rails as well as our full selection of used safety products.

Advantages of Warehouse Guard Rails

Warehouse guard rails offer several advantages in terms of safety and operational efficiency. Here are some key advantages of using guard rails in a warehouse:

  • Protection against collisions: Guard rails act as physical barriers that protect equipment, machinery, and inventory from collisions with forklifts, pallet jacks, and other moving vehicles. They can prevent costly damage to infrastructure and minimize the risk of accidents.
  • Enhanced safety for personnel: Guard rails create designated pedestrian walkways and separate them from areas with vehicular traffic. This helps prevent accidents and injuries by keeping workers out of harm's way and reducing the risk of unauthorized access to hazardous zones.
  • Improved traffic flow and organization: Guard rails can be strategically placed to guide traffic and define specific areas for different operations, such as loading and unloading zones or storage areas. This streamlines workflow, reduces congestion, and promotes efficient movement of goods and vehicles within the warehouse.
  • Visual guidance and hazard identification: Brightly colored guard rails provide clear visual guidance for workers and drivers, helping them navigate the warehouse safely. Additionally, guard rails can be equipped with reflective materials or warning signs to highlight potential hazards or restricted areas, further enhancing safety awareness.
  • Compliance with regulations: Many industrial safety standards and regulations require the use of guard rails in warehouses and other industrial facilities. By implementing guard rails, businesses can ensure compliance with relevant safety guidelines and reduce the risk of penalties or legal issues.
  • Cost-effective solution: While guard rails require an initial investment, they offer long-term cost savings by preventing accidents and damage to infrastructure and inventory. The costs associated with workplace injuries, equipment repairs, and downtime due to accidents can be significantly reduced or avoided altogether with the proper use of guard rails.
  • Versatility and customization: Guard rails come in various sizes, shapes, and materials, allowing for customization based on the specific needs of the warehouse. They can be designed to fit different layouts, accommodate specific traffic patterns, and be easily integrated with other safety measures like bollards, safety nets, or safety barriers.

Warehouse Guard Rails Applications

Warehouse guard rails find applications in various areas within a warehouse facility. Here are some common applications for warehouse guard rails:

  • Aisles and Walkways: Guard rails are used to create safe pedestrian walkways and define clear paths for workers to navigate through the warehouse. They help separate foot traffic from vehicular traffic, reducing the risk of accidents and promoting a safer working environment.
  • Loading Docks: Guard rails are installed around loading dock areas to provide a physical barrier between workers and the edge of the dock. This prevents accidental falls or collisions with moving vehicles during the loading and unloading process.
  • Racking Systems: Guard rails can be installed along the ends of racking systems to prevent forklifts or other equipment from accidentally damaging the racks or causing them to collapse. They act as a protective barrier, minimizing the risk of accidents and ensuring the stability of the storage infrastructure.
  • Equipment and Machinery Protection: Guard rails are often placed around valuable equipment, machinery, and sensitive areas such as control panels or electrical cabinets to protect them from accidental impact or unauthorized access. They help safeguard critical assets and prevent damage that could lead to downtime or costly repairs.
  • Hazardous Areas: Guard rails are used to cordon off hazardous areas within the warehouse, such as areas with heavy machinery, high voltage equipment, or chemical storage. They serve as a visible and physical barrier to prevent unauthorized entry and ensure that only authorized personnel have access to potentially dangerous zones.
  • Traffic Management: Guard rails can be strategically positioned to guide traffic flow and manage vehicle movement within the warehouse. They help define lanes, restrict certain areas, and create separation between opposing traffic, optimizing efficiency and reducing the risk of collisions.
  • Mezzanines and Elevated Platforms: Guard rails are essential for elevated platforms and mezzanines to prevent falls and provide a safe working environment for employees working at heights. They act as a protective barrier along the edges of elevated structures, ensuring worker safety.
