Rack Armour Pallet Racking Frame Protectors
Kept in stock, various high visibility colours, no fixing to the floor
Made from Ballistics Grade Plastic - No rust, no dents and has the ability to reform after impacts
No fixings required - no drilling in to your floor, faster, easier and simple to install
High visibility colour as standard - is easier to see thus reducing the likelihood of impacts occurring
Available in Red and Green colours - for fire exits, safety equipment or traffic management systems/one way routes
Fits all types and makes of racking - no special profiles required and can be transferred between different types of racking. Only Small, medium or large are required
The guard has a rounded shape with a high density polyethylene outer deflector and a tough foam inner diffuser - impacts are more likely to be deflected and any forces are diffused throughout its length
The guard is only 100 mm wide when installed to standard racking - absolute minimum bay and aisle intrusion so as not to reduce your safe operating clearances
The guard can operate down to - 40C - Extremely tough materials where you need to get in and out fast
Sizes 300mm & 600mm high with different widths to suit frame posts. 5 Different colours to choose from. You may want to think about using one colour throughout the racking system, with a different colour showing where fire exits are
The Rack Armour system aims in the first instance to avoid impact from occurring. Its conspicuous colouring and shape provides a clear indictor to Mechanical Handling Equipment operators for their safe operating boundaries. In particular, whilst MHE operators' central vision is concentrating on loads at height, the Rack Armour enhances its position in the peripheral vision, thus reducing the major cause of chronic damage to Racking Uprights.
The external 'deflector' component is made from ballistics grade High Density Polyethylene. The curved shape gives this component a low friction coefficient with high deflecting properties. The same design principles used in sloped armour on Battle tank turrets together with load distributing abilities of an arch bridge make this component the key element in its strength. Unlike some other rack protection products Polyethylene has 'persistence of shape' which means when Rack Armour receives an impact, it has the ability to return to its original shape. The simultaneous deflecting and diffusing action of the deflector will greatly reduce the impact forces from being transmitted to the vulnerable front and lateral faces of your racking uprights.
The internal 'shock diffuser' component is of such a shape and form so as to provide a flush interface between the internal profile of the 'shock isolator' component and the various types of external profiles of different manufacturing types of racking uprights. The 'shock isolator' component encapsulates the front face and portions of the lateral sides of the upright. This component is manufactured from closed cell polyethylene foam, a very tough and durable material. The shape, mass, density and internal structure of the shock isolator has such properties so as to induce inertia and an exaggerated path to shock forces.
Rack Armour - exceeding safety standards
FEM 10.2.02 is the European testing standard upon which AS 4084 is based. FEM is the most internationally recognised and one of the most up to date (having been updated in 2001) of all testing standards. Rack Armour has met and exceeded the requirements of this standard for both front and side impacts, as certified by an expert, independent source.
