GUARDING

Block. Don’t Wrap

While the occasional forklift bump in the warehouse is inevitable, when it comes to racking, structural columns, warehoused product, and (most critically) people, the acceptable number of impacts is none. Ideal Steel Guardrails, Topple Barriers, Bollards, Rack Guards, and Column Guards are engineered to protect warehouse workers, equipment, and facilities in a wide range of applications.

A loaded forklift truck can weigh-in at 7 tons or more. You can’t just cushion that blow.

Supporting structural columns and warehouse racking are designed to support vertical load but are ill-equipped to withstand a forklift impact. While available in the market, attaching a shock-absorbing cushion to these critical areas can leave your facility at risk of devastating racking collapse or column failure. A Block Don’t Wrap approach is recommended with steel guards anchored to the slab.

The Economics of Impact.

It might begin with a forklift tap to a racking upright. But the cost of what follows can be astronomical. Warehouse racks are connected and lined up like dominoes. When one goes the whole warehouse can follow. And if it’s a supporting column that takes a hit, that can bring the roof down. There’s no way to guess at the cost of these types of warehouse disasters, but if you try… don’t forget to factor in weeks of downtime.

THE IDEAL STEEL ALL-DEFENSIVE GUARDING TEAM

Prevent + Protect – our two-pronged guarding strategy

Not one, but two, warehouse safety barriers & guarding product line ups combine to offer all-around protection for columns, racks, pedestrian zones and any at-risk areas in your facility.

Ideal Warehouse Innovations’ guarding systems are engineered to protect two ways:

FIRST THEY PREVENT – The bright, safety-yellow components bring eye-opening attention to protected areas.

SECOND THEY PROTECT – When an impact does occur, the warehouse-tough, engineered-steel structures are anchored to the concrete slab and designed to stop a forklift in its tracks.

  • Guardrails – Protect walkways and equipment
  • ElephantWall™ Topple Barrier – Protect floor stacked goods and contain topples
  • Bollards – Protect dock areas, corners, equipment, and more.
  • Column Guards – 360º protection for structural columns
  • Rack Guards – Prevent a destructive strike to warehouse racks.

PROTECT ALL AT-RISK AREAS IN YOUR FACILITY.
