Rack Armour rack protection has been rigorously tested to meet and exceed tough European Standards for warehouse pallet rack safety.

Rack Upright Column Guard

The testing procedures on the rack column guard include replicating a forklift truck weighing 2 tons travelling at 5.9 feet per second (4 mph), which simulates an impact to the racking with a force of 2.4 tons (21.6-kilonewtons).

Rack Protection that Works

Rack Armour’s outer shell is made from resilient, hard-wearing ballistic plastic designed to take high-velocity impacts. The shape of the shell was designed to repel and deflect impacts away from the upright, reducing damage significantly. Rack Armor's closed-cell foam interior acting as a cushion between the racking and the plastic shell. This custom-engineered foam diffuses impact energy and diverts kinetic energy away from the racking upright. Reduced damage saves you money and time due to racking upright replacements.

    Rack Armour Upright Protection

    Rack Armour has been a global success for over a decade. Its innovative design and functionality has revolutionized racking protection and provides
    a proven 80% reduction in damage levels.

    • Made from ballistics grade plastic, it can deflect impact in most cases.
    • When a direct impact from a forklift occurs and cannot be deflected away from the rack by the outer shell, the interior foam absorbs the impact energy until it is diffused.
    • Its tight fit ensures that Rack Armour can’t be knocked off when brushed by pallet storage and retrieval by forklifts or other materials handling equipment (powered-industrial trucks - PIT).
    • Hi-visibility colour gives safe working boundaries for materials handling equipment (PIT) drivers.
