Improved protection of warehouse and logistics pallet racking is provided with an easy-to-install upright protector – Rack Armour – announced by visual communications specialist Beaverswood.
Part of the new Visusafe range, the highly visible Rack Armour protectors feature an impact-resistant, cylindrical outer casing manufactured from ballistics-grade plastic, which is wrapped around an energy- absorbing patented closed-cell foam interior for added protection and safety.
The protectors can clip quickly and easily onto the upright sections of pallet racking to help deflect collisions from wheeled pallet and forklift trucks, reducing impact damage by up to 80%, saving warehouse operators considerable repair and replacement costs.
Product is available in high-visibility Rack Armour yellow or Visusafe yellow and in a choice of four sizes: small (70-87mm); medium (88-100mm); large (101-110mm); and extra-large (111-120mm) to accommodate both box section and standard profile racking types, along with racking installations of all sizes.
Rack Armour is manufactured in the UK from 100% recyclable plastic. It is also temperature resistant to -40°C and impervious to moisture, mould growth, corrosion, acid, alkaline and most solvents for long-term high performance. An easy-to-use hand operated tool provides fast and efficient installation of the protectors to the racking uprights.
Resellers can also brand the product with their own logo, website address and contact details for re-ordering, by taking advantage of Beaverswood’s personalised label service.
“It’s critical to ensure racking systems are fully protected, keeping valuable assets safe and secure during these busy times in the industry,” said Jim Roberts, commercial manager at Beaverswood. “The introduction of our Visusafe racking protection, including Rack Armour, offers customers peace-of-mind, providing a high performance, easy-to-install and cost-effective solution.”
