Dematic has launched the Colby Protect-a-Rack to protect racking structures from weakening through impact damage, reducing the potential for OH&S hazards.
Dematic understands that, due to the nature of the warehousing industry, racking is likely to get knocks and bumps. Even the most careful of forklift drivers can accidentally collide with racking. By fitting the Colby Protect-a-Rack ongoing maintenance can be reduced.
The Colby Protect-a-Rack has been designed and backed by Dematic to ensure that any impact forces are transferred to the brace nodes, the strongest point of the rack. This clever design prevents the compromise of rack loading capacity and rack collapse in the event of a collision.
The Colby Protect-a-Rack is quick and easy to install and can be fitted to the majority of drive-in or selective pallet racking, whatever the make and brand. According to Dematic the patented Colby Protect-a-Rack outperforms other traditional steel and plastic rack protection systems. The Colby Protect-a-Rack is constructed from heavy duty steel to ensure endurance and heavy duty protection.
It is streamlined with tapered surfaces to deflect impacts and maximise clear bay entry. The innovative rack protection system offers side and rear upright protection by wrapping around the upright and eliminates the requirement for masonry anchors when bolted upright.
