RackGuard netting systems typically use Engineered offset brackets to run the cables and allow the netting panels to be installed a certain distance from the face of the racking. This allows for pallet/product overhang. Standard offsets have allowance for 4” or 6” settings, but offsets are available in sizes ranging from 2” up to 12”.
RackGuard systems are more cost-effective than the other options on the market (ie/ steel mesh panels). Not only that, engineering-wise, RackGuard netting systems are designed to absorb energy during a fall, resulting in very low stress (if any) on the racking system itself. Steel mesh, on the other hand, is secured directly to the racking and in the event of a product fall, the load is transferred directly to the racking, potentially damaging the frames.
RackGuard systems have been the industry leader for rack protection for many years, and have proven themselves time and time again by catching product before it hits the ground – preventing potential injury (or worse), or damage to equipment and product.
RackGuard not only provides a safe work environment, it also gives employees that extra feeling of safety while performing their daily duties. An employee who doesn’t have to worry about potential hazards is a more productive employee.
