Goal Post Guardrail Offers Elite High Speed Door Protection

High-Speed Doors can be found in facilities and warehouses all over the world. These quick closing, overhead or side-sliding doors are used to act as a separation barrier and to maximize energy savings for warehouses and cold storage facilities. The function is in the name. The High-Speed Doors open and close quickly to keep the temperatures set, meaning an accident can be extremely costly for companies in terms of service calls, downtime, and potential product loss or damage. That is why it’s so important for forklift drivers to be careful when operating around and going through the doorways. 

But, let’s be honest. Even with the most experienced forklift drivers, accidents still happen. So, it’s best to protect one of your most important facility assets by adding Ideal Shield’s tried and trusted Goal Post Guardrail

Shaped like, you guessed it, an upside-down field goal post, this upright industrial guardrail is designed to withstand the everyday wear and tear, as well as minor and major forklift impacts. 

Ideal Shield’s Goal Post Guardrail System can be designed to fit your exact project needs. Made of 6” steel posts and 4” schedule 40 steel pipe crossbar, the Goal Post arrives in three sections for quick and simple installation.  Don’t worry about welding, sanding or painting in the field. Depending on the surface installation (Cored or Base Plated), all you’ll need to do is slot together the posts, draw out the set bolts, hoist, and set in place.

Like most Ideal Shield guardrail system products, the standard Goal Post Guardrail comes sleeved in HDPE plastic to increase visibility and limit maintenance time and costs. The plastic sleeving will also help decrease impact and damage to the guardrail system when impacted by a forklift or other facility vehicles or carts. 

Whether it’s a cold storage facility, banana room, distribution center dock doors, or pallet rack aisleways, you’ll need to protect your high-speed doors both high and low from your facility’s forklifts and hi-lo’s.
