Steel Guard Rail - Industrial Guardrail Systems
Protect employees, equipment, and inventory from forklift accidents
Guard rail that bounces back from forklift collisions to prevent dents, dings or the need for repairs. It absorbs impact and dissipates it throughout the rail section, slightly deflecting momentarily and then bouncing back into its original shape.
Built with super-heavy-duty cylindrical steel cores and mounted to
the floor using base plates. It's coated with a bright yellow
polyethylene sleeve which has both ultraviolet and anti-static
properties. Maintains its bright look and vibrant color for years.
Help prevent damage to walls by protecting them with wall barriers made of high tensile strength steel in a W-shape guard rail directly mounted to the wall surface. No need for posts. Saves usable floor space.
Heavy-duty guardrail creates a highly visible wall of steel that is
perfect for surrounding machinery or lining a walkway. Specially
designed ribs in the guardrail give the walls extra durability while
keeping the width to a minimum to maximize floor space.
Protect machinery and workers from carts, pallet jacks, powered jacks and stacker collisions. Use in areas where fork lift traffic is light. Available in single rail (12") & triple rail (42") pre-configured sections, or order individual rails and posts to create your own.
Economically safeguards people, inventory, equipment and machinery from industrial traffic impacts. Complete guardrails available in heights of 18", 44", and 60" or customize your guardrail by ordering posts and rails individually.
Handrails can help define pedestrian walkways that prevent them from wandering into the path of forklifts and other moving equipment. Handrails also help prevent falls from mezzanines, crossovers, platforms, dock stairs and sidewalks.
Highway-style guard rail can deflect auto or other vehicular impacts. May prevent cars from leaving the road on curves and steep slopes. Although not rated for public streets, these rails offer sturdy protection at low speeds and provide drivers visual clues.
Forklift accidents are a common and costly occurrence
OSHA estimates that there are 680,400 accidents, each year, involving powered industrial trucks. Approximately 90,000 workers suffer some type of injuries in these accidents, resulting in lost work time, workers' compensation claims, and productivity losses--not to mention the damage inflicted upon equipment and facilities. About 100 people lose their lives each year in these accidents.
