Packages in warehouses require around the clock protection to mitigate potential damage from forklifts and other material handling equipment. It’s the reason that many are now integrating pallet racking protectors within their facilities. In this new post, we’ll explain more about pallet racking protectors and their value to growing businesses.
- Guard Rails
The use of steel guard rails is ideal for use within warehouses in which pallet racks are near one another. They are bolted to the floor and help to separate the pallet from activities taking place throughout the building.
- End of aisle protectors
Another great option is end of aisle protectors, which rise 5 inches from the ground and are painted caution yellow to highlight the hazard to forklift drivers and others within the warehouse space.
- Upright frame protectors
Freestanding frame protectors are an economical choice. They are designed to create a barrier between the forklift and the baseplate and lower leg of the pallet. They’re often ideal for applications in which a floor beam is in use. A leading-class alternative to upright frame protectors is strap and snap-on frame protectors, which attach directly to the frame and work like a shin guard to absorb the shock of an impact.
One of the advantages of strap and snap-on frame protectors is they are easier to install and there’s less damage to the floor in the event of a serious impact from a piece of machinery. And so, it’s important to consider this option for warehouse spaces in which impacts have been a past issue.
