A new beam with a rib in the centre is now available from Storage Ideas
that has been developed by Colby in response to a need to reduce damage to beams caused by frontal impact from accidental collision.
Storage Ideas notes that while this new patented concept is not the most aesthetically pleasing solution on the market, it serves its purpose well, doing a great job of reducing damage.
The new beams feature a stronger clip to securely fasten them to rack uprights, making accidental dislodgement practically impossible. An additional benefit of this approach is an increase in frontal impact resistance by over 200%, eliminating damage, improving OH&S, and significantly reducing rack maintenance costs
By preventing storage systems from getting damaged in the first place, these new front impact beams provide a safer workplace while providing ongoing operational cost savings.
