With the emphasis on utilizing as much warehouse space as possible, companies are storing product higher on their racks. In circumstances where the upper load beam is at, or near, the top of the rack frame, Engineered frame extensions are available to increase the height of the frame and allow netting protection for products on the upper load beam.
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 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.
