Why protect your racks?

To proactively minimize damage

An impact study performed on an upright column showed that the DAMO GUARD decreases the stress on the original column by a factor of 6 on the front and by a factor of 9 on the sides.

Avoid the hassle of maintenance costs over time

Investing in rack protection will offset maintenance costs long-term since the front of an upright column is most vulnerable to impact.

Safeguard your racks against forklift damage

The DAMO GUARD was designed for those warehouse professionals who are looking to implement more safety in and around their racking systems. Racks are treated as a commodity, a collection of components that can simply be replaced when they become damaged. However, replacements can be costly and time-consuming. Using pallet rack guards to safeguard your racking systems  makes good business sense as it will considerably extend their lifespan. Most importantly, preventing damage shows that you are putting your workers' well-being first and making warehouse safety a priority.

What's in the Repair Kit

All of our units are shipped ready to be installed. We provide all the necessary hardware, including a new heavy-duty screw-type anchor for the front and back of the footplate. A bullnose welded at the front of the unit protects the new anchor from being sheared or damaged by forklifts and outriggers. No welding is done on site.
