Keep Your Cold Storage Doors Protected With Our Hottest Products

While the winter is here for the rest of us, cold storage facilities are no strangers to the cold. These facilities are where food and medicine is stored to ensure freshness before shipping out. That is why it’s critical that cold storage facility managers ensure that the cold stays inside the freezer room even more so. But accidents do happen. 

One of the most common and unfortunate accidents that takes place in cold storage facilities involve forklifts that hit and damage high speed freezer doors or overhead roll-up doors, causing shutdowns and potential inventory loss. It’s a critical mistake that can cost thousands and thousands of dollars. So, why not protect it with the best cold storage door and asset protection solutions on the market? 

Goal Post Guardrail

Easily one of our most popular cold storage solutions, the Guardrail Goal Posts are a necessity for protecting your assets in a warehouse or facility that sees a high volume of forklift traffic that could result in damage. The vertical guardrails protect the overhead doors when they’re rolled up, the door tracks at all times, and the door edge openings when forklifts are in use. 

The Goal Post Guardrail is built to withstand extreme temperatures– all the way from -40 to 210 degrees — meaning it’s ready for just about any temperature your facility can be. Our Goal Posts also have a quick and easy installation process with no painting, welding, or sanding required. Need to install the guardrail but worried it may hit a refrigeration line? We offer specially designed Installation Spools to put in before the concrete is poured to ensure line are not broken.
