The versatility of Colby Storage Solutions ’ new rack protection system will be helpful in protecting the Dexion racking at label specialist, Avery Dennison’s warehouse in Sydney’s North West.
Following a two month trial in which the performance of the Colby Protect-a-RACK and other rack protection systems were evaluated, Avery Dennison have ordered 290 Protect-a-RACKs to be fitted to Dexion racking in high traffic areas of their Castle Hill warehouse.
The Colby Protect-a-RACK has an innovative design and can be installed with ease. The forklift drivers were also benefited as it provides front, side and rear protection to the upright.
Another advantage of the Colby Protect-a-RACK is that it fits snugly to the front face of the upright making it more space efficient than other systems. Its angled design means that most collisions are simply deflected away from the upright, reducing the severity of the impact. The Colby Protect-a-RACK also does not require masonry anchors in the floor.
Based on the Colby Protect-a-RACK’s performance during trials, Avery Dennison expect the level of rack damage to decrease significantly, thereby reducing their on-going rack maintenance costs and improving OH&S in the warehouse.
