Protect-a-Rack System

Protect-a-Rack System

Even the best forklift drivers have accidental collisions with racking. While worst-case scenarios involving a rack collapse are rare, impact damage weakens the racking structure, compromising its load carrying capacity and potentially putting both property and life at risk. Where just a 5mm upright deflection weakens a racking system so badly that it should be replaced, preventing damage is a safety priority and a huge cost saving.

Colby’s range of rack protection products include end-of-aisle guards, Colby’s Protect-a-Rack upright protector, and the newly introduced Rear Upright Protector.

These profiled, heavy-duty steel guards deflect forklift impact forces away from the upright, virtually eliminating damage.

Protect-a-Rack comes in a range of configurations to fit normal selective racking, racking with low beams, and Carton Live Storage.
