Pallet Racking Protection
Reduce Damage, Improve Safety & Lower Damage Costs
Racking protection is a smart choice for every warehouse with any form of pallet storage, from single entry through to automated facilities.
Colby’s range of rack protection dramatically reduces damage caused by impacts, ensuring safety and reducing ongoing maintenance costs. Simple installation and streamline design for the upright protectors allow highly productive forklift movements and material handling.
Made from heavy duty steel they outperform the traditional steel and plastic protectors, both in damage reduction and lowering cost.
The Colby Protect-a-Rack range includes end-of-aisle guards and front and rear upright protectors, and can be fitted to almost any brand of pallet racking.

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.
A racking corner guard protector is a manufactured heavy steel plate designed to protect the corners of racking installations, which are very vulnerable to damage due to the impact of the material handling equipment.
Our steel corner protectors are anchored on the corners to protect the racking system from any accidental damage.
Low Beam Protectors
Our low beam protectors are designed to fit most rack uprights and protects against when the first beam level is very low.
