Protect warehouse racking from impact damage

Rack protection products will protect warehouse pallet racking from impact damage. By protecting the racks effectively it can greatly reduce the risk of collapsing racks and increase protection to stock, assets and employees.

Having this kind of protection is needed especially where stock and products are being stored on pallet racking. Once installed, rack protection will reduce costly warehouse accidents.

How to install pallet rack protection for warehouses?

Before installing rack protection you should carry out your own risk assessment of the area.

To choose the right protectors consider -

  • What kind of vehicles are passing through the area - depending on the types of vehicles in use in the area may determine what kind of protection you will install.

  • How frequent the traffic moves through the area - check how often the vehicles are coming through the area. Busier areas may require heavier-duty designs.

  • What you are trying to protect - consider how the racking is set up and where you are trying to protect it. Some rack guarding setups can deflect impact from certain sides or completely surround the racking bases to provide 360-degree protection.

Types of Racking Protection

L-Shaped

Light-medium duty protection at 90 degree corners. Easily bolted down at racking ends.

U-Shaped

Light-medium duty protection. Protect entire front of upright racking protectors. Protects against impact from front and sides. Better protection to the racking upright. Also suitable for upright pipe protection.

Corner Protection

Medium duty protection. Corner protectors cover more ground around the racking and greatly reduce the risk of damage from work vehicles.

End-Frame Protection

Medium-heavy duty protection. Fully covers shelving endpoints and sides from forklift trucks.

Hoop Barriers

Heavy-duty protection. Hoop barriers provide higher level protection, suitable for protecting elevated racking points or assets.

360-Degree Protection

Heavy-duty protection. Offers unrivalled rack or column protection. Reduces damage from stray forklift forks or reversing work vehicles.

Rack Protection FAQ
  • Protect warehouse racking from damage - by surrounding the racking beams it can reduce the risk of serious damage from forklifts or other work vehicles. This will reduce the risk of racks collapsing after over time and minimise racking maintenance. The high visibility nature of the rack protectors will alert drivers to their presence in the warehouse.

  • Protect employees from harm - reducing the risk of damaged racking can in turn reduce the risk of employee injuries. Broken or damaged racking may seem fine at first glance, but bent or broken racks can cause injuries to employees if left unchecked.

  • Reduce expensive repair costs - rack protection will reduce the risk of expensive repair costs to infrastructure, machinery and other assets. Replacing damaged racking is an expensive ordeal

  • Reduce warehouse downtime - repairs may result in lost time as well as financial expenses. Protecting racking allows warehouses to operate at full capacity with peace of mind and fewer worries about slow production.

To prevent racking collapse make sure to -

  • Carry out a risk assessment to determine what is likely to be at risk of impact in the warehouse, what vehicles are in use etc.
  • Install racking protectors at exposed racking feet, columns or beams to reduce the risk of damage
  • Check pallet racking regularly for damage or weaknesses and repair or replace as necessary
  • Avoid overloading racking with excess weight and pallets

Pallet racking protection should generally be installed anywhere where these are exposed racking feet or beams.

Depending on the area, racking protectors can be installed directly around the racking feet, on the floor near the racking or directly onto the racking beams themselves.
