Pallet Racking Needs to Be Protected

Pallet racking damage is a fact of life in busy warehouses. Generally speaking, Damage often occurs along an upright's first 6" to 12" of column from the floor due to fork truck impact, especially at end rows, tunnels, drive thrus and intersections, where maneuvering is tight. Racking damage also happens when fork truck operators push pallets, empty or with product, against end row uprights, which can bend their diagonal or horizontal bracing.

Guard Dawg protects 3" or 4" wide upright columns, and gets in right, left or double ended guards so it works with virtually all end row racks when constructed of high-strength 5" x 3" x 3/8" steel angle,

Offered in two standard sizes, or customised to fit any span between back-to-back uprights, the Guard Dawg pallet racking protection is secured to the floor with 3/4" heavy-duty anchors and hardware, included with purchase.

"To protect capital investment while guarding against downtime, liability and rising material cost, preventive safety should be paid much more attention than ever today," says John Ellis, a Steel King Sales Manager. "Pro-active warehouse managers find Guard Dawg a cost effective way to achieve this. Many are installing it upon new rack installation, instead of waiting until after rack damage, replacement and facility disruptions costs."

Guard Dawg is powder coated bright industrial yellow for greater operator visibility, which can develop and improve material handling safety and efficiency. Because its powder coated rather than painted with enamel, it's 94% more resistant to chips and scratches. Guard Dawg is available in Steel King's 48-Hour Quick Ship stocking program.

Since 1970, Steel King has obtained a national reputation for manufacturing competitively superior non-powered material handling solutions, from high-density storage to 100% selective storage to custom racks and containers. It offers a full line of warehouse safety products, including Guard Dawg, to protect personnel, equipment and pallet racking.
