RackGuard

RackGuard™ is designed to protect rack legs and uprights from front, side and scrape impacts by workplace vehicles.  

RackGuard works by absorbing and deflecting impacts. It transfers energy around the rack leg rather than through it, preventing damage and maintaining the structural integrity of the racking system. 

Ten frictional grip points, a compression hinge and a centralising rubber lug ensure a secure grip to any rack leg. The RackGuard Tool Set makes installations quick and simple.
