Keeping your buildings safe from damage

Column guards and protection solutions

Protecting columns and vertical structures

Columns are critical to a building’s integrity and need protection from moving vehicles. Column guards configured from barriers provide the highest impact resistance and can be tailored to fit any shape or location of column. Wrap-around column guards fit tightly to square or rectangular columns and are stackable to maximize visibility for drivers.

Height restriction barrier preventing structural damage

Protecting overhead structures

Conveyors, gantries, ductwork, cable trays and other overhead structures can be damaged by vehicles or forklift masts. Height restrictors provide impact protection for these vulnerable structures. Alarm Bars in front of overhead assets create a powerful audio-visual alert for drivers when triggered.

Safety bollards protecting industrial doors

Protecting doorways

Industrial doors can be damaged by impacts from forklift trucks and palleted goods. Safety bollards at doorways guide drivers while loading and unloading. A bollard will take the wear of a tight corner, protecting both the door and the building’s structure.
