Such as “I hope those boxes don’t get pushed off the back…” or “That upright seems to be stable now but what if it took another forklift hit?” We’ve all, at some point in time, had that inner voice of reason asking questions and/or pointing out the obvious – but what do you do about it?

5 Basic Rack Safety Products You Should Have

Top 5 Basic Products for Pallet Rack Safety by W.W. Cannon in Dallas TXCost-Effective and Quick-to-Install Products – providing basic safety, avoiding downtime, and saving you money.

Pallet Rack Safety Netting –

No more worrying about the hazard of items falling into the work area or on your employees.  Rack back safety netting creates a strong barrier to protect the flue space from products pushing through or falling.  Sliding safety nets are convenient for the front of the rack bay for quick, easy access.  This durable netting system is easier to install, move, and more cost effective than a wire mesh solution.

Wire Mesh Pallet Rack Backing –

Wire mesh pallet rack back panels bolt directly to the back of your existing rack uprights forming a sturdy wall of protection between stored product and busy work aisles.  Rigid, resilient, quick to install and competitively priced.

EOA & Post Protectors –

Upright posts are the backbone of the racking system, also the most susceptible to forklift damage – most exposed and most vulnerable.  Easy to install rack upright post protectors completely shields individual posts.  Structural steel design wraps around the full circumference of the post – completely shielding it from impact.  EOA (End Of Aisle) protectors guard the entire end of bays or double bays.

Floor Angle Guide –

Provides an uninterrupted, low to the ground protection along the full length of your bays.  Use floor angle guides to prevent narrow-aisle fork trucks, lifts and order pickers from coming into contact with the rack. Your racking remains intact and your assets undamaged.

Heavy Duty Guardrail –

Control, define and protect important areas within your fast-paced warehouse with heavy-duty guardrail.  Provides a solid, impact resistant barrier between your storage rack areas, expensive or dangerous equipment, and pedestrian walkways.  This guardrail, when properly installed, is engineered to withstand a 10,000 lb impact at 4 mph.  A trouble-free solution to your peace of mind!
