Damo Shield by protection product by Damotech on a white background

The DAMO SHIELD is the ultimate building column protector. It protects from damage due to impact with forklifts, fork trucks, or any other machinery. It surrounds the column without structurally relying on it in case of impact.

The DAMO SHIELD is a structurally independent column protector, anchored to the warehouse floor. It will absorb the impacts, so your building column remains unaffected. It is the safest and most robust column protector on the market.

Indestructible Warehouse Column Protector

Damotech's structural column protectors are robust and virtually indestructible. The DAMO SHIELD 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. The 8” base plate on the DAMO SHIELD also offers extra protection against forklift blades at floor level, securing the most critical part of the building column.

Forget about blow-molded, cell foam, high-density polyethylene or plastic alternative column protectors, they may minimize scuffs, may be cheaper to install, but they will never be as reliable, safe and resistant as the DAMO SHIELD. You can trust our long-lasting warehouse column protectors to keep your building columns safe.

Tough Protection for Warehouse and Factory Columns

Building columns are essential for the structural integrity of your facility. The DAMO SHIELD is the only genuinely secure solution on the market that can be tailored to the shape of your columns, painted any color, whether it's safety yellow for high visibility, or the same color as the column, for uniformity. This 360º column protector is quick and easy to install by our certified crews or your maintenance team. Use it as steel column protection or concrete column protection in high traffic areas like shipping zones, parking garages, or busy corridors.

This building column guard is an excellent long-term investment for overall warehouse protection and the ideal solution for operators looking to protect a new installation or facility.

As the name implies, the fork blocker blocks fork blades from impacting building columns above 8". This insert 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.
