Rack protection, collision protection
It happened quickly. One time you were not paying attention and you hit the shelf with the forklift. With low speed no problem, but unfortunately it often happens that the heavy duty rack is damaged. This is where collision protection devices made of steel help - preferably in signal colours and in various shapes for every area of the warehouse: racks, employees and everything worth protecting in the warehouse is perfectly secured with rack protection.
Rack protection & collision protection for shelving systems, edge protection & crash protection bollards – more than just a duty
As much as you’d like to avoid them, accidents in warehouses and production areas occur thousands of times a year when manoeuvring with a forklift or pallet truck. The legislator defined corresponding regulations at an early stage for the securing of stationary racks and inspection intervals. They can be found in DIN EN 15635, BGR 234 or DGUV regulation 108-007. Heavy-duty racks such as cantilever racks, pallet racks and longspan racks must be regularly inspected in accordance with these regulations. The examination of damage to the rack is also an important part of this inspection. With collision protection, your racking will not get damaged at all.
Collision protection & rack protection protect material, racks and people
Steel collision protection is the most popular rack protection to prevent damage to the load-bearing rack frame, as it is very robust and does not have to be replaced immediately after a collision. The colour scheme in the signal colours yellow and black is striking and thus fulfils an important warning function to protect shelves and buildings from impact damage or scratches. Steel rack protection can also be used outdoors thanks to its weatherproof paint finish.
Corner protection / edge protection as well as crash protection bollards
Corner protection and crash protection bollards round off the range of safety equipment. Whether to protect the edges of your racks or the walls of your premises – the robust steel edge protection does not give way so quickly. Crash protection bollards can withstand even the strongest forces and are often used to protect entrances and walkways.
Annual duty to inspect racks & rack inspection
Heavy-duty racks need to be inspected annually. TOPREGAL can carry out the inspection for you – even of racks that aren’t from our range of heavy-duty racking. It would be our pleasure to prepare a quote to inspect your racks on site for you. We can even repair minor defects on the racks at the same time. At the end of our inspection, you will receive a report and a inspection badge for your rack indicating the next inspection date. For more information, see the service section rack inspection.
