Protect-A-Rack Upright frame Protector

Our Protect-a-Racks are manufactured from heavy-duty steel and are anchored and bolted to both the floor and face of the upright for positive fixing.

This is easy to install, and its unique design helps in protecting the rack from any accidental damage. 

Designed to fit just about every type of rack upright, the Colby Protect-a-Rack upright protector outperforms traditional steel and plastic rack protection systems through its unique, innovative design and ease of installation.

Tapered surfaces deflect impacts from forklifts, and even simplify bay entry. Impact forces are transferred into the racking brace nodes, rather than into the upright.

Protect-a-Racks are bolted to the upright, eliminating the need for masonry anchors. It wraps around the upright, providing protection from front, side, and rear impacts

Protect-A-Rack Rear Upright Protector

The rear upright protector delivers extra rack protection for a part of your rack that would be costly and inconvenient to repair, and where – crucially – damage is difficult to detect.

Colby’s rear upright protection was developed following reports from customers that they were still experiencing damage to rear uprights due to forklift drivers pushing a pallet too far into the ground level storage bay, causing it to strike the rear upright.

This rear upright protector helps elimated damage to the rear of the pallet racking.

Rack End Protectors

Pallet Racking End Protectors help prevent damage to racking and inventory by forklifts.

No matter how good your forklift drivers are, there will always be sometime when an accident or mistake happens and they crash into the pallet racking. You can avoid major injuries and pallet rack damage by installing these protection guards.

Damage not only causes serious safety issues but disassembling, repair, reassembling and reloading of pallet racks increases your running costs.
