STORAGE - PROTECTION
There are two main aspects of protection products available, firstly
for protecting storage (and other) equipment from impact damage
and secondly for segregating pedestrians from potentially dangerous
equipment or machinery.
Damage caused to storage systems by mechanical handling equipment
can mean costly and disruptive repairs being required. Accidental
impact can also cause dangerous damage to structures. To minimise
these risks, Storage Logic provide a range of specially developed
products for economical and effective solutions.
Upright guards are easily fitted to exposed frame sections and are
a low cost solution to protect against minor impact damage.
Floor Mounted Guards
Guards fixed to the floor slab independent of the racking structure
provide a durable option however account needs to be taken of clearances
within the storage bays and operating aisles.
Rack End Barriers
Exposed ends of racks and drive-through bays are often at highest
risk of impact from mechanical handling equipment turning into the
aisles. It is also common to have goods stacked at the ends of racks
bringing the risk of damage if the rack end is unprotected.
Low level ‘inertia’ barriers include special sprung
fixings to absorb impact
Tubular barriers can be fabricated to varying heights and in a range
of tube sizes to best suit the particular requirement.
Providing separate, protected access routes for pedestrians through
areas where machinery or mechanical handling equipment operates
is always a sensible precaution. Barriers can range from light duty
railing systems though to heavy duty constructions depending on
the equipment in use and level of protection required.
Beyond the standard products available, we can also design and fabricate
special protective systems to suit any application. An example of
this is shown below where special floor channels are fitted to drive-in
racking with haevy duty ‘lead-in’ sections.
