Where to use our safety guard rail system & why using guard rail is important:

Warehouse guard railing systems are an essential safety component within your facility. Guard rail provides a physical and visual barrier to protect from forklift and powered vehicle accidents. The rail system can be installed along pedestrian walkways to keep your employees safe.

Guard rail separates work areas from forklift driving lanes. This reduces the chance of worker accidents and equipment damage. Places you should install guarding includes inplant offices, shipping departments, around machinery, walkways, and at the ends of pallet racking.
