Ideal Shield’s Embedded Spools are designed to help improve and ease the installation process of our Goal Post and Industrial Guardrail in refrigeration areas and cold storage facilities.
The custom-designed spools feature two U.S. Steel plates with eight pieces of #4 rebar welded between them. The top plate is 3/4″ thick and 18″ wide with the bottom plate at 1/2″ thick and 12″ wide, with the overall height at 6.25″ tall but with the ability to be altered for custom jobs.
For installation, the top plate of the system will be placed at grade level as the interior will fill with concrete when the foundation is laid to increase strength.
Thanks to the oversized top plate, there will be some “wiggle room” and a bigger target to hit for workers when they’re installing the guardrail. This design will nearly eliminate any potential mistake that could result in drilling into a refrigeration line during installation, saving you on potential future costs.
Why Spools for Refrigeration and Cold Storage Facilities?
Guardrail is critical throughout refrigeration and cold storage facilities as the overhead and sliding doors that keep the cold rooms sealed are vulnerable to damage from forklifts on a daily basis. No matter how talented and safe the drivers may happen to be, mistakes happen.
So, it’s extremely important for the doors and the rest of the facility to be protected. But with most heavy-duty warehouse guardrail needing to be cored into the ground, not just base plated, alterations are necessary.
That is why we offer the pro-set spool that is specially designed to be installed into the ground while laying the foundation.

“We purchased some sign bollard covers from you all a few months ago and they work great! So far we’ve had 0 signs fall over in our parking lot. This time last year we had 2-3 fall over so already we’ve saved roughly $500 dollars in damages.”

“I have been truly impressed with the covers we bought from you so many years ago. They have been exposed to direct sunlight for years and have not faded one bit after all this time! Kudos!”

“First and foremost, we have loved the sign bases. They have gone through the various states of weather that Minnesota has to offer and they are withstanding the weather and doing a great job for us. At this time, we have all of our needs, however, after the Super Bowl and when we head into our spring events we could be looking to purchasing additional signs. ”
