Heavy duty 3 sided column guard made from 5mm steel.
3 Sided Column Guard – These are an essential product when it comes to protecting pallet racking. In fact the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) states that all exposed racking uprights should be protected from fork lift truck damage.
HSG76 Warehousing and storage: A guide to Health & Safety states:
Where racking is likely to be struck by lift trucks and other vehicles, it should be protected. Generally, such damage is at the lower levels of the racking – use renewable column guards to minimise the risk of damage from accidental impact. Corner uprights in a run of racking are especially at risk and should be suitably provided with a protective device in a conspicuous colour. Column guards offer this protection.
EN 15629 Steel static storage systems; specification of storage equipment 8.8 Free standing upright protectors states:
In determining the minimum requirement for aisle and gangway widths, consideration shall be given to the provision of effective upright protection. The minimum locations protected should be:
A) Uprights at the exposed ends of aisles and at passageways used for movement of trucks.
B) Uprights of drive-in racking next to main gangways (not drive-in or drive-through bays).
Column guards shall be made conspicuous by safety colours.
SEMA (Storage Equipment Manufacturers Association) Code of Practice for the Use of Static Pallet Racking 8.4 Rack Protection states:
Where necessary, steps should be taken to protect corner uprights from being struck by fork lift trucks (FLT’s) and other vehicles. A first line of defence should be incorporated, such as renewable column guards or guide rails, which prevent the truck getting too close to the main racking structure. Column protection in other areas likely to incur damage should also be considered.
The 3 Sided Column Guard is available from stock and comes with the floor fixings included in the price.
