Rack systems are not designed to be struck by forklifts, and even low-speed collisions lead to structural damage. Such accidents are major safety issues and are very costly to repair. Protect-it column protectors are designed to minimize the damage caused to pallet racking from forklift impacts. The product is available to fit most pallet racking column sizes and major brands sold throughout the United States and Canada.
Protect-it column protectors securely grip the columns with no separate fasteners. They consist of an outer wall that is integrally molded to a series of curved spring-like energy absorbers at the front and sides to provide two levels of protection. Under light to moderate collisions, the outer wall deforms to resist the impact, and then Protect-it returns to its original shape. Under higher impacts, the outer wall deflects even more, contacting the energy absorbers and delivering increased impact absorption. This staged response makes the product flexible enough to accommodate everyday knocks and bumps yet robust enough to withstand substantial forklift impacts.
Protect-it column protectors take just seconds to install by hand. The design uses spring clips that enable Protect-it to securely grip a column and automatically adjust its width to suit the column size without the need for additional attachments.
Protect-it is available in recognized safety colors and also provides efficient protection in cold storage temperatures as low as -40 degrees.
