The Ideal Shield Bounce Back Guardrail is the cost-effective solution for flexible in-plant guardrail systems designed to absorb impacts and limit damage to forklifts and forklift operators while protecting critical assets.
The Bounce Back Guardrail separates itself from the competition with it’s price point as well as it’s protection capabilities. The competition’s flexible guardrail systems all utilize polymer cross rails that flex upon impact while Ideal Shield’s Bounce Back Guardrail’s flexibility comes from the base plate system and uses U.S. steel cross rails to give more reliable of protection to critical assets.
Featuring a specially designed rubber flex system that comes cold galvanized, The Bounce Back Guardrail is made from 6″ Schedule 40 steel pipe and sleeved in HDPE plastic to eliminate painting needs. For flexibility, the Guardrail is designed to absorb contact from a full sized forklift traveling at 4 mph and flex up to 18 degrees before returning to its upright shape. This “give” will not only limit damage to forklifts but will also limit damage to the anchors and concrete.

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.”

“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. ”
