Rack Armour Pallet Racking Frame Protectors
In stock for quick delivery, high visibility colours, no fixing to floor
Made from Ballistics Grade Plastic, meaning no rust, no dents and can reform after impact
No fixings required - no holes in your floor, easier and faster to install and move
High visibility colours - easier to see, reducing the risk of accidents
Available in Red and Green - great one-way systems and traffic management, fire exits
Fits all types and makes of racking - simply order small, medium or large - it can be moved between different types of racking
Its rounded shape features a tough foam inner diffuser and a high-density polyethylene outer deflecto - impacts are deflected and forces diffused throughout its mass
Only 100 mm wide when fitted to standard racking, meaning the minimum possible intrusion into working area
Can operate down to - 40C
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.
