Application of warehouse fenders?

Manoeuvring forklifts in narrow storage aisles is not the easiest thing, which often leads to accidents and damage to the shelves and warehouse equipment. Storage fenders and rack covers are special systems of protection and protection of walls, racks, production lines, and devices against damage resulting from inattentive driving of trucks, lift trucks, and other vehicles necessary to work in the warehouse. Warehouse fenders are often also used as a way to separate individual rooms inside the plant and to create a protective barrier against hazards, so they are not only recommended but also legally required in every warehouse. Warehouse fenders are made of the highest quality steel and then powder coated in yellow and black for better visibility. This approach to production guarantees resistance to impact and mechanical damage.

Warehouse Fenders-Appearance Requirements

For safety requirements and OHS regulations, the warehouse fenders at Elektron are powder coated in yellow, and then black stripes made of reflective foil are glued on them. When a specific order requires it, we also paint it with a second layer of powder paint in black. Industrial fenders used for outdoor use are always hot-dip galvanized before painting, while those used inside are usually not tinned, although at the customer’s request they can also be galvanized to additionally protect them against corrosion.

In addition, they also work great as a form of protection for machines, columns, racks, and loading ramps. In a word, you cannot do without them in stock.

Column & Post Protectors

Warehouse column fenders

Warehouse column fenders are bumpers that have the shape of a simple steel post. These types of warehouse fenders are most often used to protect all types of gates and passages. Our pole fenders are made of high-quality steel, then powder coated yellow and marked with black reflective stripes. For additional safety, the end of the post is permanently closed with a welded steel plug. Such warehouse fenders are effective as covers for shelves, machines, and devices of the production line, as well as for structural elements of warehouse halls.

Height Restriction Barriers

Height Restriction Barriers

Height Restriction Barriers have several basic tasks: they reduce the height, inform about the lowering of the ceiling level, 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 types of warehouse aisles and crossings, especially where forklifts are often used.
