warehouse column protector Damo Shield

The DAMO SHIELD is the ultimate high-impact building column protector. It protects from damage due to impact with forklifts, fork trucks, or any other machinery or vehicle. One of the unique features of the DAMO SHIELD is its ability to remain completely independent from the columnAlternative column protectors such as cell-foam, high-density polyethylene or plastic are wrapped around the column - so the structure is still absorbing the impact. With the heavy-duty DAMO SHIELD, you can rest assured that your column will not be compromised in any way. The unit is robust and built to withstand the harshest of environments.

Why The Damo Shield?

The columns in a building are the backbone of its structural integrity. Often, the column will carry part of the structural load, meaning that its job is to keep the building from collapsing or shifting in a way that could cause damage to the overall structure. Repairing this damage can cost tens of thousands of dollars.

The DAMO SHIELD is the only high-impact product of its kind on the market. It is made of two 1/4" structural steel half-moons, which are bolted together. It has a minimal footprint as floor anchors are on the inside of the protective shield. At 36" in standard height and anchored to the ground with eight heavy-duty Hilti anchors, it will stay put, no matter what happens. It can even be customized in shape to protect other warehouse fixtures like pipes and drains, or electric cables running next to the columns.

Fork Blocker Option

As the name implies, the fork blocker blocks fork blades from impacting building columns above 8". This add-on product was designed to prevent the lift's forks from reaching through to the column while the DAMO SHIELD protects the column from all the other parts of the lift.
