WHAT IS RAKGARD ?

Simply RAKGARD 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.
 

PROBLEM

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.

 

HEALTH  &  SAFETY

Another major 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).

 

SOLUTION

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.

 

HOW DOES RAKGARD FIX ?

To install your RAKGARD 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.
