Guard Rails for Agriculture
Warehouses and shipping departments are a hustle and bustle of worker and forklift activity. Due to the confined floor space, it’s easy for a forklift operator to accidentally bump into a worker, pallet, or crate of delicate fruits and vegetables.
Handle It guard rails put a bright yellow metal barrier between the forklifts, workers, and products. They can help improve safety in areas such as:
- Forklift driving lanes
- Shipping and packing departments
- Pedestrian walkways
- Warehouse rack aisles
- Pallet racking
Rack Protectors for Agriculture
End of Aisle Guards and Rack Protectors from Handle It will help protect your warehouse racks from accidental damage or collisions with motorized vehicles. The overall cost of adding this important safety feature pales compared to the loss of product and replacement of warehouse racks should an accident occur.
Handle It rack protectors will shield your product and agricultural products from pallet trucks, vehicles, and forklift impacts. Our End of Aisle Guards are built out of heavy-duty 0.375” thick steel that can withstand the extreme forces of a forklift or other vehicle accident.
Breathable Film for Agriculture
Some agricultural products can “choke” when wrapped in traditional shrink wrap. Handle It Breathable Film has hundreds of thousands of tiny holes that allow your produce and vegetables to breathe while in transit.
Pallet Wrapper Accessories for Agriculture
Handle It carries a versatile line of pallet wrapper accessories to enhance your pallet wrapping experience, help you gain efficiency and improve operator safety. Including scales, printers, ramps, anti-static brushes, safety fencing, light curtains, film and other equipment, there are a multitude of options to choose from.
Case Study: Agricultural Pallet Wrapper
An onion and garlic grower needed an efficient way to wrap 50-60 pallets per day. As the business grew, manual hand wrapping of pallets became cumbersome and fraught with human error.
Handle It provided the grower with a semi-automatic pallet wrapper that could safely and efficiently wrap their irregularly-sized pallets using a breathable shrink wrap film. Read more about this case study.
