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.
