Warehouse Rack Safety Products | Upright Post/Column Protection

Working with heavy equipment inside a warehouse, like a forklift for example comes with risks. In addition to making sure that no one is ever hit by a lift truck, you have to make sure you protect your other equipment as well as your products. However, it’s your pallet rack frames and beams that might be in the most danger of being damaged by a lift truck or other heavy equipment.

Column Protectors (also called post protectors) are available in various heights, usually 12”, 24”, 36”, and 48”. Free standing column protectors mount to the floor with anchors in front of the upright post, and are available as aisle post protection or corner post protection. Bolt-on or clip-on column protectors attach directly to the column.

End-of-Aisle Protection is important because it offers protection to the most vulnerable part of your pallet rack system, the ends of the aisles, or rows. There are several types of rack-end protection. These row end protectors are typically sold as individual ‘right’ or ‘left’ rack protectors, or as a combined ‘double-headed’ protector. Bollards and guard rails are other types of protection used at the ends of the aisles.
