Statistics on industrial accidents involving the movement and storage of materials are overwhelming. OSHA estimates nearly 100,000 injuries annually involving powered industrial trucks and over 100,000 more involving falling objects. Considering the fact that those injuries add up to several hundred thousand hours of lost workday cases, hundreds of fatal injuries, and millions of dollars in damaged product annually, it has never been more important to ensure that items are safely secured where the two hazards meet: on and around industrial storage systems.
SpaceGuard Products does its part by offering the heaviest duty pallet rack protection systems available on the market. All rack safety panels are constructed from our unrivaled 6-gauge welded wire mesh welded into a 1-1/4" x 1-1/4" x 1/8" steel angle frame to provide essential protection of personnel and products.
Unlike alternatives such as netting, our wire mesh pallet rack backing offers a durable solution that is easily installed and maintained with infrequent replacement. Installation is available in two options: 1) fixed offset brackets for teardrop style uprights, and 2) our innovative adjustable bracket that accommodate offsets between 2" and 12" on most upright styles measuring up to 3-1/2" in width and depth.
Our fixed rack safety offsets are 3" x 1/8" thick steel formed at two ends for additional strength and mount easily to slotted holes punch in the face of the panels as well as the teardrop pattern of the pallet rack. Fixed brackets are available in a range of offsets from flush up to 12". Our adjustable brackets use a tube arm securely supported to the upright with two U-bolts, and a 2" collar that slide along the arm to the desired or available offset within a flue or when backed up to an aisle - and can be cut down once fixed in place. Both bracket types can be shared between vertically stacked panels. Adjustable brackets afford the ability to share panel attachment between two adjacent bays off of the same collar. This efficient means of attachment is both cost-effective and ties an entire system together for added strength and stability.
The best part... SpaceGuard's heavy-duty wire mesh safety guards are available at competitive prices and in an array of panel sizes to accommodate various beam lengths.
