Rack Protectors Attach to Rack Uprights, Protecting from Forklift Damage

Rack Sentry® rack protectors attach to your rack uprights, protecting them from the abuse from collisions with your forklifts. Constructed of a flexible EVA material, Rack Sentry gives your racks a highly visible layer of protection that's easily installed without tools. Rack Sentry is available in a number of sizes to fit most uprights. Additionally, there are models available for low beam installations and for end racks. 

Rack Sentry® is ideal for intermediate rack uprights where high visibility and a flexible layer of protection is most needed. The product is designed to absorb impact by flexing, returning to shape to work again. We have tested Rack Sentry® to a limit of 3mph (5km/h) using a 5,000 lb. (capacity) forklift without visible damage to the rack upright, forklift, or product.

Rack Sentry® installs directly to the rack upright, eliminating the need to drill into the floor at the rack upright. In use, Rack Sentry® puts no stress on the floor.

Rack Sentry® exceeds the European FEM standard of 400 N.m protection recommended for rack uprights.

For use in temperatures below 0°C, the use of Rack Sentry LT (Low Temperature) is recommended.

 

Rack Sentry LT

Rack Sentry LTRack Sentry LT rack guards are specially formulated to withstand impact in environments much colder than the original Rack Sentry model products. The difference is that the newer model rack guards are molded of a special polymer that allows flexibility in much lower temperatures without cracking. They have been successfully tested in temperatures down to -30 degrees C.

Rack Sentry LT guards are available in all existing sizes of the current model. The LT model is distinguished from the standard model by the bright blue straps.

 

Rack Sentry Cutout & Cutout 2

rack sentry cutoutThe Rack Sentry Cutout (RS75 CO) protection product features a cutaway section on the return arms to allow it to be placed on racking with beams located down to 5" from the floor. This option allows the use of Rack Sentry® on virtually any upright. Previously Rack Sentry® could only be used on rack uprights without intersecting beams. This new rack protection option gives users the ability to use it practically anywhere needed.  The location of the cutout is offset so that it can be placed either 5" or 7" from the floor, depending on which end is placed down. This allows more flexibility in placement  while keeping protection where you need it.

We know of no other protective product in the world that offers protection below, above, and at the low beam placement.

Rack Sentry END

Rack Sentry Corner
The Rack Sentry END (RS75END) product offers 270 degrees of protection.  It is designed to install on the end of the rack installation and can protect both the front and the vulnerable end from collisions.  It is designed to visually complement our existing line of Rack Sentry® protection products: 18" (46cm) high, installed with 2 included hook & loop straps.  Rack Sentry® END guards ideally fits on 3" (75mm) wide  prights, but with this new design it is not impossible to apply this to different width uprights.
