On The Right Track

To reduce maintenance costs and prevent downtime, the overhead door tracks at a loading dock need protection from forklifts and other motorized warehouse equipment. But how to select the right Track Protector at your facility? Ideal Warehouse Innovations understands not every need is the same, and now offers more variations.

Many of our Track Protectors are available in 24”, 36” and 48” section heights, and different thicknesses from 1/8” (10ga) to 3/8”. High visibility is always achieved with their tough, safety yellow powder coating.

Here are some common features to consider when selecting Track Protectors:

45 Degree Bend
  • The 45 degree bend adds strength and protects against side impact.
Base Plate
  • All of our Track Protectors are manufactured to fasten into the wall (anchors not included). For extra support and protection, base plates can be ordered. To save installation time (and overall cost), consider ordering without base plates.

Our online variation table for track protectors makes short work of selecting the right model, while the “Add To Quote” function can quickly send a request for pricing to the Ideal Team, and a handy link to the product drawing is available for each item.
