Standard metal systems are often a drab and dull metallic colour making them almost unnoticeable to warehouse staff. Rack Armour barriers are a striking high visibility yellow, making them detectable to mechanical handling equipment operators, this in the first instance helps stop impacts from occurring at all.
Rack Armour barriers flex and absorb impacts which would render metal systems useless. They have a unique feature which enables the product to reform to its original shape after impact, giving you a product which can concede impacts all day every day and look like it’s been untouched hours later.
Rack Armour barriers are made from a solid high visibility plastic, this gives our barriers a clean and tidy appearance even after years of service and numerous impacts. Metal systems can often appear tired and in need of repair, a level of maintenance is required including painting which takes time and money.
A standard metal barrier has no absorption qualities, this means that all the impact energy from collisions transfer straight down to the expensive concrete floor. This in most cases leaves you with not only a damaged barrier that needs replacing, but also a crumbled floor that needs relaying can be extremely expensive and time consuming work. A Rack Armour barrier flexes and absorbs impact energy through its unique foam interior, eliminating any transferable energy away from your floor, in turn saving you thousands in repair costs.
Rack Armour barriers use the same unique foam diffuser as in the upright protector, helping to diffuse impact energy whilst a collision takes place.
