DAMO SHIELD

warehouse column protector Damo Shield

HIGH IMPACT BUILDING COLUMN PROTECTOR

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.

Conventional solutions made of cell foam, high-density polyethylene, or plastic are wrapped around the column - unfortunately, they transfer the impact to the structure. In contrast, the DAMO SHIELD remains completely independent from the column. It is the safest and strongest column protector available for your steel or concrete building columns!

Damaged-Columns

The need for building column protectors

The columns in a building are the backbone of its structural integrity. The job of a column is to keep the building from collapsing or shifting in a way that could cause damage to the overall structure. If damage to a structural column occurs, repairing it 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 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.

Guard columns from forklifts with the Fork Blocker
