Heavy Duty Industrial Guardrail

The Strongest Industrial Guardrail On The Market!

Ideal Shield Heavy Guardrail System is the premier, heavy-duty solution to protecting your facility’s most valuable assets – people and equipment.

As the strongest guardrail on the market, our product will keep your facility, warehouse or parking lot protected from everyday vehicle accidents. Unlike traditional-welded or bolt-down systems that require the rail to be replaced after an impact, our unique design can withstand multiple collisions from 12,000lbs. forklifts in all high traffic areas.

Upon impact, Ideal Shield’s Heavy Guardrail distributes the shock throughout the entire section, resulting in zero deflection to maximize floor space and limit damage as much as possible. The same cannot be said for the competitor’s guardrail.

Common Uses

  • Facility, machinery and critical asset protection
  • Protecting warehouse pallet racks
  • Parking lot protection
  • Electric vehicle charging station barriers
  • Safeguarding inventory

Sleeved in a durable HDPE plastic and available in both one line and two line options, our safety guardrails require virtually no maintenance or painting. This feature means you will be able to save money on both possible accidents and maintenance fees throughout the life of the product.

If aesthetics is important to you, our Heavy-Duty Guardrails are available in highly visible safety yellow, and gunmetal gray – a high end alternative to galvanized rail. Both of which will give your facility a clean, improved look.

The Ideal Advantage

What is the difference between standard and heavy guardrail?

Standard Guardrail is made of 4’’ sch. 40 steel pipe rails and 2 1/2 sch. 80 steel pipe posts. The guardrail can withstand a 12,000 lb. forklift traveling 4 mph.

Heavy Guardrail is made of 6’’ sch. 40s steel pipe rails and 4’’ sch. 80 steel pipe posts. The guardrail can withstand a 12,000 lb. forklift traveling 8 mph.

Can I plate or core-mount?

Yes, you can plate or core drill depending on your application.

What is unique about Ideal Shield’s Guardrail System?

Ideal Shield’s Heavy Guardrail System is the strongest guardrail on the market; it can withstand multiple hits from a 12,000 lb. forklift traveling 8 mph. The guardrail is modular, delivers to site fully assembled and never requires paint. Lastly, the system can be placed with 6” to 8’’ of a wall which saves valuable floor space.

What are the standard lengths and can I have one continuous run of railing?

Our standard lengths are 4’, 6’, 8’, 10’ and 12’ sections. For continuous runs, we recommend that you use as many 12’ sections as possible and space each section 6’’-8” apart.

Besides the standard sizes listed do you have custom height and lengths available?

Yes, we can build to any specification.

How do you install the product?

You can install our Guardrail a number of different ways: 1) You can surface mount using anchor expansion bolts (3/4” x 6”). 2) On application of 27” and shorter you can use a 5 1/8” core bit, core hole depth of pavement and drop the railing into place thus making the railing modular. On installation of 28” or higher, you can add steel floor sleeves so your railing is still modular 3) You can cement the railing into place for a permanent installation.

Can you replace the plastic on the railing?

You can re-sleeve the guardrail section if needed.
