Industrial fenders and technical barriers are indispensable attributes of every production hall, warehouse, and logistics centre. In addition to protecting the walls, technical barriers can be used to separate rooms inside halls or secure production lines, cabinets, shelves, and parking lots, or designate zones for pedestrians, guarded or dangerous. There are many applications, but one certainty—it is impossible to imagine a professional industrial plant without this type of security. And we, as a manufacturer of top-class fenders and protection systems, will tell you everything about them and why you should take advantage of our offer. What are industrial fenders and what are their types?
Industrial fenders - application
Technical barriers and industrial fenders are systems of protection and protection of walls, shelves, production lines, corners, and devices against damage by trucks, forklifts, and people. It is also a way to separate individual rooms inside an industrial hall. Due to its simplicity of installation, reasonable price, and longevity, it is a quick way to separate the area and create a protective barrier against threats. Industrial fenders are most often made of high-quality steel that is resistant to impacts and mechanical damage. Safety barriers are usually yellow with black elements for greater visibility.
Industrial fenders - colour requirements
The following are the standard legal requirements for colour and coating for industrial and technical barriers:
- Galvanised with stripes of wear-resistant reflective foil (red, black, yellow, blue, white).
- Yellow and black, acc. DIN4844
- Galvanization without additives.
- Any RAL colour without additives.
- Any RAL colour with stripes made of wear-resistant reflective foil.
- Galvanised with a coating.
The fenders in Elektron are often powder-coated yellow, and then black stripes made of reflective foil are glued on them. Sometimes they are also painted with a second layer of powder paint in black. Industrial fenders used for outdoor use are always hot-dip galvanised before painting, while those used inside are usually not tin-plated, but at the customer’s request, they can also be galvanised to additionally protect them against corrosion.
INDUSTRIAL FENDERS - TYPES
There are several main types of security systems on the market that differ in design and use.
Industrial column fenders
The first type is industrial pole fenders. These types of technical barriers have the shape of a simple post and are most often used to protect all types of gates and passages. Industrial column fenders can also be used to block the entrance and protect walls, corners, machines, and devices, as well as marking communication paths.
Linear industrial fenders
Another very popular and necessary type of fender is the line fender, which allows easy access to protected areas and is particularly suitable for securing wall-mounted devices such as control cabinets, first aid equipment, and all types of tool cabinets. It is ideal and quite cheap protection against accidents and damage to equipment elements against forklifts, pallet trucks, and roller containers.
Industrial corner fenders
Next in line are the steel corner fenders. These types of industrial fenders provide effective and durable protection for roads and crossings, although they are equally good at separating various communication routes and are also suitable for securing machines, columns, racks, and loading ramps.
Hanging industrial fenders
Hanging industrial fenders reduce the height, provide information about the lower level of the ceiling, and prevent overly tall vehicles from passing under them. As a result, vehicles passing under protection breach the stop but do not damage the building structure. They are used on all kinds of crossings and crossings.v
Column and pole covers
Versatile column guards ensure safety against damage to sensitive columns, poles, and pipelines and are widely used in warehouses, factories, and public buildings.
