How to Properly Protect Overhead Door Tracks

Damaged overhead door tracks from forklift impacts are far more serious than just an inconvenience in your day. These damages even go beyond the expensive costs and time out of your day to repair. Once the door tracks are damaged, that means the door is inoperable which will affect production and, for cold storage facilities, can mean the loss of food, medicine, materials, and more. That can end up costing thousands and thousands of dollars in the long run. So, why not properly protect your overhead door tracks with the most cost effective solution on the market? 

We here at Ideal Shield have the solution to eliminate concerns about door track and overhead door damage; our extremely popular Goal Post Guardrail.

Made with U.S. Steel and sleeved in HDPE plastic to eliminate painting, just like all of Industrial Guardrail solutions, the Goal Post Guardrail will protect your overhead doors vertically and horizontally across the top where the door roll up functions. Whether you work in cold storage or a hot warehouse, the Goal Post will withstand all extreme temperatures it may endure. Like all of our products, it is built to last.
