Column and Pallet Rack Protection
In warehouses, pallet rack damage is a major occupational health and safety issue. Pallet racking is not designed to be struck by fork-lifts. Hence, even low speed collisions can lead to structural damage that is both costly to repair and dangerous to the lives of workers. PROTECT-IT™ offers exceptional performance in pallet racking protection. Protect-it improves safety and protects your investment. Protect-it also has one of the lowest replacement cost in the market.
Spring-like absorbers provide 2 levels of protection
PROTECT-IT™ combines clever design, Computer Aided Engineering and advanced thermoplastic materials to deliver a product that can absorb large impacts and easily attach to a column without additional fasteners. Protect-it consists of an outer wall that is integrally moulded to a series of curved “spring-like” energy absorbers at the front and sides to provide two levels of protection for columns.
During light to moderate impacts, the outer wall deforms to resist the impact then returns to its original shape. Should there be higher impacts, the outer wall deflects even more, contacting the energy absorbers and delivering increased impact absorption.
This staged response therefore makes the product flexible enough to accommodate everyday knocks and bumps yet robust enough to withstand substantial forklift impacts.
Resistant material trusted worldwide
Protect-it uses a super tough grade corrosion and moisture resistant HDPE thermoplastic. This special material has a reputation throughout the world for impact strength in a wide range of extreme environments. Protect-it is also injection moulded, and therefore enabling the use of much tougher plastics than the other available plastic protectors in the market.
