In-Plant Guarding

Protect Your Plants from Accidents

Ideal Shield offers a wide variety of in-plant, facility, and warehouse guarding options to help protect your plant from accidental forklift or cart impacts. 

If you’re looking for protection around dock doors and between the pallet racks while still being able to access the area, our new Steel Rack Guards are designed to protect the framing from forklifts and carts. Made from ¼” U.S. Steel, these upright frame guards are designed to be installed around the vertical frames of the pallet rack. 

We’ve created a wide array of industrial strength U.S. steel in-plant guarding options, including:

-Angle Floor Stop Shield

-Steel Floor Guard

-Square Rack Shield

-Half-Moon Rack Shield

-Low Profile Rack Shield

-Pointed Rack Shield

-Door Track Shield

-Downspout Guard

-Vertical Lift Stanchions for Gear Box protection

Like with all of our steel products, Ideal Shield only uses high quality, American-made steel. They’re also powder-coated in safety yellow for better visibility. 

Looking for something to fit your exact in-plant protection needs? Contact us today. Our facility has the machinery and specialty equipment to meet your needs.

What our customers are saying

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.”
