Ideal Shield Standard Guardrail System is the market’s premier solution to protecting your facility’s most valuable assets – people and equipment.

Stronger than the competitor’s heavy-duty guardrail, our Standard Guardrail Systems are available in both one or two line rails and are sleeved in a durable HDPE plastic, requiring no maintenance or painting. This means that you’ll be saving money on possible accidents as well as maintenance and labor fees moving forward.

Unlike traditional-welded or bolt-down systems that require the rail to be replaced after an impact, our unique design can withstand multiple impacts from a 12,000lb forklift traveling 4 mph. When Ideal’s guardrail is hit, the shock is distributed throughout the entire section, resulting in zero deflection to maximize floor space and limit damage as much as possible. The same cannot be said for the competitor’s guardrail.

For base plate installation, Rounded Base Plates are now standard. 

Common Uses

• Facility, machinery and critical asset protection
• Protecting warehouse pallet racks
• Parking lot protection
• Electric vehicle charging station barriers
• Safeguarding inventory

In terms of customization, our safety guardrails are available in two different colors include highly visible safety yellow, and gunmetal gray – a high-end alternative to galvanized rail. The Standard guardrail is also available in a variety of sizes, heights and mounting options thanks to the fact that all of the manufacturing takes place right here in the United States. 

The Ideal Advantage

• Virtually maintenance-free protection for workers and expensive facility equipment
• Built with 4″ schedule 40 steel pipe rails & 2 1/2″ schedule 80 steel pipe posts.

What is the difference between standard and heavy guardrail?

Standard Guardrail is made of 4’’ sch. 40 steel pipe rails and 2 1/2 sch. 80 steel pipe posts. The guardrail can withstand a 12,000 lb. forklift traveling 4 mph.

Heavy Guardrail is made of 6’’ sch. 40 steel pipe rails and 4’’ sch. 80 steel pipe posts. The guardrail can withstand a 12,000 lb. forklift traveling 8 mph.

Can I plate or core-mount?

Yes, you can plate or core drill depending on your application.

What is unique about Ideal Shield’s Guardrail System?

Ideal Shield’s Standard Guardrail System is the strongest guardrail on the market; it can withstand multiple hits from a 12,000 lb. forklift traveling 4 mph. The guardrail is a modular, delivers to site fully assembled and never requires paint. Lastly, the system can be placed within 8’’ of a wall which saves valuable floor space.

What are the standard lengths and can I have one continuous run of railing?

Our standard lengths are 4’, 6’, 8’, 10’ sections. For continuous runs, we recommend that you use as many 10’ sections as possible and space each section 6’’-8” apart.

Besides the standard sizes listed do you have custom height and lengths available?

Yes, we can build to any specification.

How do you install the product?

You can install our Guardrail a number of different ways: 1) You can use anchor expansion bolts (6 1/4 x 3/4). 2) On application of 27” and shorter, you can use a 3” core bit and drop the railing into place, making the railing modular. On installation of 28” or higher, you can add steel floor sleeves so your railing is still modular; 3) You can cement the railing into place.

Can you replace the plastic on the railing?

You can re-sleeve the guardrail section if needed.
