Upright guards, either in steel (bolted to the upright), or
polyethylene (held in place with cable ties), will fit onto
any make of racking and are available in a variety of heights.
They are easy to fit and can withstand quite serious damage
before replacement of the guard is necessary. Both designs
are neat, being a good fit and are brightly coloured - an
obvious advantage to access and safety in general.
are available on an installed or supply only basis but must
only be fitted to a completely undamaged upright in every
case. If not, any damage will be hidden and subsequent formal
inspection of the installation will either have to be at the
rear of these uprights or pronounced 'unseen' and therefore
of 'unknown safety' by the inspecting engineer. Likewise visible
scuffing of the protector may imply the upright is damaged
and the engineer will also seek to have clear uninterrupted
viewing of such uprights.
