Many companies only start looking at Pallet Racking Protection & Pedestrian Safety Barriers after an accident has happened. Skipping the cost in the short term can come back to bite them in the future with costly repairs, absent staff and downtime caused by damaged racking.

In the dynamic environment of modern warehouses, the safety of both personnel and stored goods is paramount. Efficiently managing a warehouse not only involves optimising space but also ensuring that every component of the operation is protected against potential hazards.

This is where the importance of advanced racking protection systems comes into play. QTS has a new range of Racking Protection products to improve safety and efficiency in warehouses. This includes End of Aisle Rack Protectors, Pallet Racking Upright Protectors, and Rack Deflectors, all at an affordable price.

The Need for Advanced Pallet Racking Protection & Pedestrian Safety Barriers

Warehouses are bustling places where accidents can happen frequently, particularly when forklifts and other heavy equipment are in use. One mistake can cause serious damage to both the racking systems and the valuable inventory they store. More importantly, it can put employees at risk of injuries.

Installing strong rack protection goes beyond just following safety rules. It involves creating a culture of safety and efficiency. This culture helps to keep both people and assets safe.

  • Enhanced Protection: Reduces the likelihood of damage to racking systems, thereby preserving the integrity and stability of storage installations.
  • Cost Savings: Prevents costly repairs and replacements of racking components by mitigating the effects of collisions.
  • Operational Efficiency: The unobtrusive design does not compromise the storage capacity or operational space, maintaining efficiency in warehouse operations.
  • Safety Improvement: Increases overall warehouse safety by reducing the likelihood of accidents caused by damaged racking

Pedestrian Safety Barriers

Pedestrian Safety Barriers are designed to enhance safety in warehouses and industrial areas. They clearly separate pedestrian walkways from areas where vehicles operate. The barriers create a physical barrier between pedestrians and vehicles helping to prevent accidents and injuries.

These barriers are available in single or double-rail designs and are made from collision-absorbing materials that are brightly coloured for optimal visibility. Customisable to fit any warehouse layout, they play a crucial role in minimising the risk of accidents and managing traffic flow within dynamic environments.

  • Enhanced Pedestrian Safety: Significantly reduces the risk of accidents involving pedestrians and moving vehicles within the facility.
  • Accident Prevention: Acts as a physical and visual barrier, preventing collisions and potential injuries.
  • Traffic Management: Helps organise the flow of human and mechanical traffic, improving operational efficiency and safety.
  • Adaptability: Easily integrated into existing safety systems, providing flexibility in layout changes and expansions
