More information about the case study

When considering safeguarding buildings against vehicle collisions, one of the primary concerns is protecting crucial structural components such as columns. The damage caused to building columns by vehicular impact can introduce significant risks due to their vital role in maintaining structural stability. Repairing damage to columns is challenging and expensive, considering its impact on the overall integrity of the construction. Investing in column protectors is a wise decision to avoid costly and disruptive repairs. 

Traditional column protectors of polymer or plastic rely on the column for structural support. Plastic column protectors resemble car bumpers, encasing the column but transferring the impact energy to it. Unfortunately, it can damage the column due to the energy transfer. In contrast, dedicated steel column protectors like DAMO SHIELD take a different approach. DAMO SHIELD does not come into direct contact with the column and operates independently, redirecting the impact energy to the ground. It securely fastens to the floor, ensuring collisions leave the column unharmed.  

Construction of a fresh facility presents an ideal chance to ensure everything is executed flawlessly from the beginning! Explore how a customer embarked on a quest for a compact and dependable solution to safeguard the building columns in their newly constructed warehouse, only to stumble upon an even more excellent option through their collaboration with Damotech and DAMO SHIELD.
