Specialising in rack protection systems in New Zealand

Racking Protection is a very serious consideration for anyone setting up a bulk storage racking system.  It is really an essential part of the installation and needs to be included in the initial costings allowance.  Good protection systems can save the owner many thousands of dollars over the life of a racking system. An extra cost initially is a small price to pay, compared with substantial ongoing repair costs. Contact us now and learn more about the right racking column guards & pallet racking protectors for you.

Racking Protection is classified into two types:

  • Post Guards (or Rack Column Guards)
  • Post Protectors

Post Guards are traditionally made from steel and solidly fixed to the floor with no connection to the post or frame.  They are designed to prevent fork lifts or other heavy equipment damaging the structure.  Post Guards are generally used on end of rows or corners where traffic movement occurs most.

Post Protectors are either steel or more commonly plastic.  They attach to the racking post itself and are designed to prevent minor impacts and the general scrapes and bruises that are common in a busy warehouse.  Post Protectors are usually fitted on all of the front posts, and will dramatically increase the life of your racking.
