is a protector for your upright racking. Like a car bumper it is designed
to absorb the impacts that would normally result in damage. Constructed
for durability to high material specifications.
It is clear that the current solutions
offered for protection of racking uprights have several major drawbacks.
These include not only the cost of the product but additionally the time
and disruption to the operation of the warehouse during installation and
replacement. In many ways the metal protectors (or boots) simply store
more problems for the future. Not only do the protectors themselves become
damaged but so do the tyres of the fork trucks, when they come into
contact with the floor fixing bolts. It is difficult to estimate the
annual cost of this disruption together with the cost of downloading,
inspections and maintenance.
issue concerning responsible warehouse management is to provide a safe
working environment. Most warehouse managers are unaware that 3mm
deflection over a 1 meter length of upright is the recommended minimum for
the safe operation of racking systems (SEMA code of practice).
RAKGARD is quick and easy to
install light and easy to handle.
Needs no drilling or bolting Effectively eliminates damage, can protect
any height or upright.
HOW FAR DOES
RAKGARD PROTECT ?
RAKGARD is 750mm
high. This offers protection further up the racking upright. Normal boot
type protectors usually reach about 300mm. In our tests we found that the
majority of damage occurred above this 300mm area. In certain areas even
more protection may be required RAKGARD can
be supplied in custom heights.
RAKGARD FIX ?
simply slip the buffer over the
upright, position as required and slide the outer
case into place, each RAKGARD
is supplied with 3 tie-wraps to tighten and secure the outer case. No
drilling or bolting is required.
