Damo BASE GUARD

Damo Base Guard - Damotech Rack Protection in Front

The DAMO BASE GUARD is a unique rack column protector that effectively protects the bottom part of pallet racking columns while allowing the installation or removal of beams at floor level.

Other post guards prevent low beam installation because they cover the holes meant for beam connectors. Conversely, the DAMO BASE GUARD is designed to be independent of the rack. It's solidly anchored to the floor and does not cover the front of the rack columns. At 7” in height, it has a low profile, thus allowing for beam installation near the ground.

Easy to Install

The DAMO BASE GUARD can be installed at the base of almost any pallet rack system from any rack manufacturing company and can accommodate column base plate sizes of up to 5-1/2" by 7-3/16."

Damotech’s new rack column protector is extremely impact-resistant and quick to install by your maintenance crew or by Damotech’s certified installers. The DAMO BASE GUARD is backed by a 10-year manufacturer’s warranty against defects.

Benefits

Heavy Duty

We use high-quality structural steel with a heavy gauge to offer true impact resistance. The front and sides of the guard are made from a single bent 3/8" steel plate to deflect forklift blades and protect the rack.

Any Type of Rack

Our post guard can be installed at the foot of almost any pallet rack system from any rack manufacturer and can fit around column base plate of up to 5-1/2" by 7-3/16."

Structurally independant

It is designed to be structurally independent of the rack system and protect against forklift impact. It is anchored to the floor with four screw-type Hilti anchors for maximum stength.

Solidly Anchored

Our rack column guard can easily be installed by your maintenance crew or by Damotech's certified installers. All the necessary bolts and anchors are included and ship with your units directly to your warehouse.

Safer Warehouse

A safe warehouse is good for everyone! Employees feel safer and become more productive while managers become less stressed and reduce risk for the company.

Powder Coated Paint

A process called electrostatic spray deposition (ESD) is used to achieve the application of the powder coating to the steel. All our paint is done in-house, in our LEED facility.

Our protection products are meant to help you prevent pallet rack damage before it happens, eliminating the need for costly replacement and contributing to the improvement of safety in your warehouse. We recommend starting with areas where forklift traffic is heavy, at the end of aisles where there is a greater risk of contact with the racking system. Our robust line of protection units is a simple and cost-effective way of safeguarding your investment and protecting your employees.
