Our upright corner column protectors and column guards protect the front columns of your pallet rack from forklift damage, which can significantly increase the chance of rack failure. Our rack reinforcement and column guards will significantly reduce the chance of forklift damage to your pallet rack system.
Post protectors are typically used on columns at end of rows. These columns are most susceptible to damage from forklifts. Post protectors have enlarged foot plates at the bottom with 4 pre-drilled holes for concrete anchor bolts.
Experienced warehouse managers have learned that the initial investment in pallet rack protection will pay off many times over in the reduction of rack damage. The cost of replacing a damaged upright can exceed $1000. when you figure in the overtime pay to have the racks unloaded, disassembled, replaced and reloaded.
