Guardrails 101

Why Do You Need Guardrails?

Damage is inevitable inside of a warehouse. Whether it’s caused by human error, or just every day wear and tear, it happens. While some
items are easy to repair when damaged, there are things on the opposite end of the spectrum that would not only take time to repair, but would cost a lot of money. That’s where guardrails come in.

What do guardrails do?

Guardrails create a heavy duty barrier between your workers and the things you want to protect. Whether it’s office spaces, heating and cooling equipment, electrical boxes, or anything in-between, they need to be protected. Did you know 11% of forklifts in the United States are involved in some kind of accident each year? Accidents are inevitable, but the level of damage that results is something that can be prevented.

On top of helping to prevent major damage, guardrails also control and define important areas inside you’re warehouse. We can help you design a system that will do all of the above, and more. Putting safety systems into place that will protect your workers should be your number 1 priority, and we want to help you achieve the highest standard of safety possible.
