pallet rack column protectors are devices designed to safeguard the vertical columns (uprights) of pallet racking systems in warehouses or storage facilities. Their primary function is to prevent damage to the uprights caused by collisions with forklifts, pallets, or other equipment. By absorbing or deflecting impact forces, these protectors help maintain the structural integrity of the racking system, ensuring safety and prolonging the lifespan of the equipment.

Types of pallet racking upright protectors include:

  • Bolted-on protectors: Installed by bolting directly onto the upright columns.
  • Wrap-around protectors: Designed to wrap around the uprights and provide protection on multiple sides.
  • Floor-mounted protectors: Installed at the base of the uprights to protect against low-level impacts.
    Installation methods vary depending on the type of protector but typically involve securing the pallet rack protectors to the upright columns or the floor.

Advantages:

  • Protects against damage from forklift collisions.
  • Helps extend the lifespan of pallet racking systems.
  • Easy to install and replace.


Disadvantages:

  • May require periodic maintenance or replacement if damaged.
  • Can add additional cost to the initial investment in pallet racking systems.
  • The cost of pallet rack column protectors can vary depending on factors such as the type of protector, material, size, and quantity needed. On average, prices can range from $50 to $200 per pallet rack protector.
  • Trusted brands and suppliers in the industry include HEDA,  Husky Rack & Wire, Steel King, Mecalux, and WireCrafters. It’s essential to research customer reviews, product quality, and warranty policies when choosing a supplier.
