Racking Protection - Column Guards

 Apex_Column_Guards

Apex Storage Limited provide a wide range of column guards. Column guards or rack protectors are commonly used to protect the pallet racking uprights which can be damaged by FLT's (fork lift trucks). We can offer protection to standard rack uprights using a variety of different column guards.

Our standard range of column guards are used for the protection of pallet racking uprights from impacts from FLT's or pallets. Impact damage to the rack upright can lead to critical component failure and at worst a rack collapse. 

Using our range of column guards provides protection to all standard pallet racking uprights. Select from our 2 or 3 sided column guards standard to heavy duty options. In addition to rack upright protection you can use our column protectors to protect mezzanine columns, see below. 

Finished in high visability orange our column guards can be supplied complete with floor fixings in 2 weeks.

Standard Protection

Under normal circumstances, traditional column guards stand off the racking and are mechanically fixed to the floor in isolation from the racking upright. This arrangement allows the column guard to receive the impact rather than the racking upright but begins to fail after a number of impacts at which stage the floor fixings work loose. When this happens, the column guard fails to protect and itself becomes a danger to the racking.


Double Protection

 Flying Butress




The flying buttress is a purpose designed column guard which fits around racking uprights. It can be used independently or in conjunction with the innovative RackAware Defender. The flying buttress is unique in that it provides a rounded front face together with six bolt floor fixings on the inside of the guard. Not only does it deflect any impact better than most traditional column guards, but the combination of steel and the RackAware Defender protects the valuable upright better than ever before.

Column Guard & RackDefender 





When used with the RackAware Defender, any steel column guard is able to cope with most casual impacts. In the event of a full faced impact the steel and the energy absorbing characteristics of the RackDefender combine to protect the racking upright better than ever before.

  Pallets and Pallet Types

Pallet Racking is designed to accommodate products of various shapes and sizes supported on pallets. The design of the pallet directly influences the design of the racking.

Pallets allow products to be moved mechanically; by FLT's (fork lift trucks, hand pallet trucks, stacker cranes and conveyor systems. The top face of the pallet can be open or close boarded with provision for forks created by either blocks or bearers. The gap created is generally around 110mm.

Generally pallets stored on racking have to be good quality pallets (GKN Chep or simillar) with a perimeter base. Poor quality (one way) pallets are usually not strong enought o support the product on pallet racking and either timber decks or pallet support bars are required.
