Protect warehouse racking from impact damage

Rack protection products will protect warehouse pallet racking from impact damage. Protecting racking is crucial to safe warehouse spaces. 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. Having the right rack protection in place will help to reduce damage to nearby assets and will help to save money in repair costs for your company. As warehouses reach full capacity more pallet rack protectors will be needed.

How to install pallet rack protection for warehouses?

Depending on the type of product install rack leg protectors at the bottom of exposed pallet racking or directly onto the racking itself.

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. Also, take into account the value of the items on the racking and where they are situated in your warehouse.

Steel pallet rack protectors will generally be installed around the racking. Be sure to leave enough room between the protector and the racking in order to effectively deflect the impact.

Rubber or plastic rack guards can be installed directly onto the racking beams. These protectors will reduce physical or cosmetic damage to the beams but can also reduce the risk of injury to employees.

Why install rack protection?

  • 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.
  • 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.
