Hi-vis upright protectors
made of steel

Avoid collisions into walls, corners, pallet racking units, posts and pipes with our range of upright protectors. Specifically designed for warehouses, factories, public buildings or office blocks, the range is easy to install and can be used both indoors and outdoors.

There's a safety barrier
for any industrial application

Use our upright protector kits to avoid collision damage to corners, posts or any other structure. Perfectly suitable for warehouses or factories, especially where forklifts are being used.

A large variety to choose from

Our pipe barriers come in all shapes and sizes to ensure that you find the right solution for your particular requirements. Our range of readily available kits includes:

Sturdy, industrial strength barriers

Made of sturdy galvanised steel, all our barriers are designed to last. The materials we use for our kits together with the hi-vis powder-coating ensure that the barriers are suitable for installation both indoors as well as outdoors, with no rusting if installed and cared for adequately.

Upright systems that help protect your goods

Being hi-vis, all our kits in this range act as a visual and physical barrier between the areas you are looking to protect and potential hazard agents such as moving machinery. Their presence can help avoid such hazards in the first place.

A modular design that is easy to work with

We want our kits to be easy to install and work with. The modular design of these barriers makes them straigh-forward to install, replace and maintain. Should a section ever get damaged, all you need to do is remove it and replace it, while keeping the operations down-time to an absolute minimum.

Incredibly easy to install

Our kits include the tube and fittings you need to construct the units. The tube and fittings attach to one another using an allen key which tightens the grub screws incorporated within the fittings. This system helps eliminate the need for specialised tools or specialised labour.

Compliant to BS EN 15512:2009

Our warehouse barriers comply with BS EN 15512:2009 - 'Steel static storage systems. Adjustable pallet racking systems. Principles for structural design.'

The standard states that appropriate safety measures need to be put in place so that impact damage caused by forklift trucks or other moving equipment against rack-uprights is avoided. Of course, accidents can and do happen; the standard suggests the inclusion of upright protectors:

  • An upright protector with a min height of 400 mm needs to be positioned at the end upright of each run of racking between cross-aisles.
  • An upright protector shall be positioned at those uprights positioned at all aisle and gangway intersections.
  • The upright protector needs to absorb an energy of at least 400Nm in any direction at any height between 0,10 m and 0,40 m.
  • The upright protector needs to be positioned in such a way that, after its deformation by absorbing an impact, the upright will not be damaged.
  • Rack protection may be designed theoretically; alternatively testing shall be carried out for the purpose of acceptance. Tests shall be on the basis of a mass being dropped or swung into the protector to model the energy absorption requirement of 400 Nm.
