Warehouse pallet racking is a significant investment for any business, collision damage to the frame upright is not only a health and safety issue but can also be expensive to rectify. In response to this PSS is now launching the impact protection system Protect-it. This plastic protection system is quick and easy to install, requiring no tools or skilled labour and provides instant protection to the upright. Protect-it is now available for the PSS pallet racking ranges Stronglock and Premierack.
This in-genius design means that under light to moderate impact Protect-it’s outer wall deforms to withstand a collision then cleverly returns to its original shape. Under higher impacts the outer wall deflects even more delivering increased impact absorption. This staged response makes the product flexible enough to accommodate everyday knocks and bumps, yet robust enough to withstand substantial forklift impacts.
Most impacts occur in a small area and within 300mm from the floor. Each Protect-it section is 100mm high and allows the user to determine the height of protection required by stacking the relevant number of sections. Protect-it takes seconds to remove and re-install allowing fast and effective safety checks.
Manufactured to the highest standards Protect-it is also effective in cold stores for temperature as low as -40 degree, Protect-it is a Multiple International Design winner and passes FEM 10.2.02 frontal impact test.
