Warehouse Guardrail Will Keep People, Products & Places Protected

Protecting people, products, and places is what guardrail is designed to do. Having all three operating at peak levels is also one of the most important aspects of a well-run warehouse. If any of the three are badly damaged, that means productivity is going to drop drastically and business will take a hit. That’s something that simply cannot happen.

So, don’t let it happen by adding some new Ideal Shield warehouse guardrail throughout your facility.  

Ideal Shield has several guardrail systems in its catalog, each offering its own guarding capabilities for specific areas throughout the shop. 

Standard Guardrail

Designed for lower impact forklift areas, our Standard Guardrail is made with 4″ schedule 40 steel pipe rails & 2 ½” schedule 80 steel pipe posts. The guardrail is available in both one or two-line rails, and are sleeved in a durable HDPE plastic, requiring no maintenance or painting. This means no more painting and touching up your guardrails for visibility and aesthetic purposes as the plastic is designed to withstand hits and scratches without breaking or cracking.

Heavy-Duty Guardrail 

If you’re looking for the strongest industrial guardrail on the market, our Heavy-Duty Guardrail is just that. Sleeved in a durable HDPE plastic and available in both one-line and two-line options, the Heavy-Duty Guardrail is made from 4″ schedule 80 and 6″ schedule 40 steel pipe. Once installed, either Base Plated or Core & Drop, the guardrail will withstand multiple full speed impacts from a 12,000lbs. forklift with limited deflection. This allows for the guardrail to be installed much closer to critical assets and fall areas than flexible guardrail or steel corrugated guardrail options.

Rack System Guardrail

Our Rack System Guardrail is designed to protect the ends of storage pallet racks from forklift impacts.  Available in Core-and-Drop or Base Plate installation, the Rack Guard can be designed specifically for your job with one-line or two-line systems as well as longer runs to protect a line of pallet racks. Like all of our guardrail, these pallet rack protectors are made from schedule 40 and schedule 80 steel pipe and sleeved in HDPE plastic, meaning you’ll never have to paint again.
