Guardrail

A New Way to Save the Day

Ideal Shield’s New Barrier Guardrail is an industrial guarding solution that is designed for continuous runs and extended protection for facilities and warehouses in need of forklift protection.

The Barrier Guardrail is made from U.S. steel sleeved in HDPE plastic and is available in both Standard and Heavy Duty options as well as One-Line or Two-Line designs to meet protection level needs. The HDPE plastic will limit maintenance costs as you will never have to paint the guardrail again, even after impacts

The Barrier Guardrail is available to meet your specific needs including in one continuous run for full facility protection or in individual component parts to protect an single section or to add on to your existing Barrier Guardrail. 

Assembly of the Barrier Guardrail is simple and the standard installation option includes Surface Mounted Base Plates to make the install as quick and easy as possible. 

Protect those turns and corners, high-priced machinery, shipping and storage rack areas, or any other critical asset areas while cutting down on shipping costs. Ask us how! 

Need a custom design or even stronger application? Our sales and engineering team can design your warehouse guardrail system to fit your exact needs with our Core & Drop installation option, extra rails and posts, or different dimensions all together.

Our Customers

What our customers are saying

“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.”

William Myers - Amazon

“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!”

Mark C. - UBT

“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. ” 

Representative from US Bank Stadium, home of the Minnesota Vikings & Super Bowl 52

“This is just what we were looking for. Well made. We will be installing it next week. Everyone here is excited to have a railing to hang onto with winter coming. We at St. Cyprian thank you and your facility for help us.”

Carl Baltosiewich w/St. Cyprian
