Rack Armour has been a global success for over a decade.
Its innovative design and functionality has revolutionised racking protection and provides a proven 80% reduction in damage levels – saving time, money and hassle. Its tight fit ensures that Rack Armour can’t be knocked off whilst pallets are retrieved.
Made from ballistics grade plastic, the Rack Armour® outer shell is shaped to divert impact energy around the rack leg instead of through it. Any remaining impact energy is absorbed by the interior foam until it is diffused. This twin action protection uniquely helps to maintain the structural integrity of the racking system. Rack Armour® can’t be knocked off when brushed by vehicles and with a hi-visibility range of colours, clearly helps identify safe working boundaries for materials handling equipment drivers.
These upright protectors fit all makes of pallet racking and are transferable. Made from ballistics grade plastic which is non toxic and fully recyclable, the material is also impervious to moisture, mould growth, corrosion, acid, alkaline and most solvents. Rack Armour can also be used at temperatures down to -40°C.
Rack Armour has been tested to meet and exceed European and Australian safety standards, including EN 15512 and AS4100. This involved simulating a forklift truck weighing two tons travelling at 1.8 metres per second striking a section of racking. With Rack Armour fitted, negligible damage occurred after eight strikes (a 3mm buckle). Without protection, significant damage occurred after one strike (a 12mm buckle), increasing to 74mm after three hits. According to SEMA guidelines, a 3mm buckle is a ‘green risk’ and the racking can be continued to be used. Conversely, a 12mm buckle in the racking is a ‘red risk’, rendering the racking unusable and urgent repair action must be taken.
