Do You Need End of Aisle Rack Protection??? You Bet You Do!

Made in the USA Pallet Rack Protection System

by Phil Strouth on 07/25/17

Do You Want Your Warehouse Pallet Rack Protection System Made in the USA?Made in the USA….. I sure do.  At P Strouth LLC we have our Pallet Rack Post Protectors made in the United States with United States steel.  We also have our End of Aisle Rack Protection made in the USA.

Does this make our products more expensive than most of the column guards on the market?

No…. actually our 12”, 18”, and 24” high pallet rack protectors are at the same price or lower than most all post protectors that are imported from China.  Our end of aisle rack protection system is the least expensive system on the market and more effective!!

The reason we can make our post protectors at a great value is because we buy American steel locally and use American workers and machinery to cut, fabricate, bend, and weld our protectors right here in North Carolina, USA.  We do not have to put our products on a boat and bring in thousands at a time.  We can also make custom heights and widths and designs at minimal cost due to our in house engineering and design.  We can also offer custom colors at request at minimal upcharge in a durable and great looking powder coat finish.  Our lead time (if we do not already have them in stock) is only about 2 weeks for non-standard and custom designs.  Not to mention all our products ships direct from North Carolina via UPS or LTL Freight.

Our end of rack rub rail protection system is most commonly supplied in 42”, 48”, and 96” long C4 channel structural steel rails.  Also made in the USA.  We can make custom lengths to meet your single deep pallet rack rows or double deep upright rows.  We can make them single high guard rail and double high guard rail for maximum protection.

Many applications are unique to your warehouse design but we can make our pallet rack protection system work for you and it is all MADE IN THE USA!!!

Post Protectors Create End of Aisle Rack Protection.

by Phil Strouth on 07/17/17

Is it necessary to add end of aisle rack protection to help protect your pallet rack in your warehouse?  You bet it is!!  Most rack uprights are damaged at the end of aisles.  Why?  Because you have forklifts making turns and coming in and out of the rack rows at different angles making these high traffic areas and more likely to be hit by the forklift.

There are different forms of end of aisle rack protection on the market and most of these work well.  Any protection is better than no protection.
After many years of looking at and replacing damaged pallet rack, I think I have come up with a very simple yet effective end of aisle pallet rack protection system.  In the majority of damaged uprights we have replaced over the years it seems most of the damage occurs 12" down at the bottom of the upright.  This usually is a case of the counterweight of the forklift hitting the upright.  The counterweight sticks out the most at the bottom of the forklift and when the operator turns or backs up that is usually what hits the upright frame.  Also I have seen forks or pallets hit the uprights and cause damage.  Therefore I designed and fairly standard post protector.  The post protectors are the style that have a base plate that we anchor to the concrete in front and around the upright column.  The plate will accept (4) 1/2" x 3.75" long anchors.  We use a longer footplate on the post protector to help disperse the impact on the concrete anchors.  Once the post protectors and anchored in place we use a C4 channel structural beam mounted between the post protectors.  One bolt holds the structural beam (we call it a Rack End Rub Rail) on each end that you impact directly to the post protectors.  We have bolt holes on the post protector on each side to accept the rack end rub rail no matter if it is left hand or right hand side.  This creates a solid end protection of the entire exposed side of the upright frame from being hit by the forklift.  We can do the rack end rub rail in 42", 48", and 96" as standards but we can make it to any dimension needed.  This makes the end of your uprights less likely to be damaged by a forklift hit.
Our system is quick, easy, effective, and less expensive than most other end of aisle pallet rack protection systems.  As always I am available for questions or design to help protector your rack investment.  www.pstrouth.com
