Rack needs protection from forklifts. Damaged rack must be repaired or replaced to keep your warehouse safe. Get ahead of the problem by buying rack protectors for your warehouse pallet racking.
Rack protection comes in a number of types:
- Steel rack post protectors
- Non-metal post protectors
- End of aisle frame protectors
We will take you through the various types of protection individually and in detail.

Non-Metallic Universal One-Size-Fits-All Post Protector
Boplan is a Belgian rack protection company that manufactures post protectors that fit all styles of racking. Using an internal polymer spring, the rack protector clamps to the racking frame and absorbs the energy of the impact internally.
End-of-Aisle Frame Protector
There are two types of end of aisle frame protectors. There are frame protectors that bolt to the frame. There are also frame protectors that bolt to the floor. Both help protect racking from errant forklifts.
Hannibal End of Row Protector
This end of row protector attaches to the frame at the end of an aisle or inside a tunnel. The benefit to this style of end of aisle protector is how low-profile the accessory is. It takes up very little space from the intersecting aisle it is installed in.
Guard Rail for Pallet Racking End-of-Aisle Protection
This end-of-aisle guardrail protects the end frame of pallet rack in intersecting aisles. It can also form a barrier between travel aisles and pedestrian traffic.
This barrier is really impressive. It doesn’t dent or become deformed after impact. It absorbs the energy from the impact and bounces back. For more information, please contact Sales at (562) 946-8459.
