FACT CHECK - 600mm(24") Competitor Plastic Pallet Rack Guard - Impact Testing

Published by Paul Huxtable in Fact Check - Impact Testing · 4/11/2015 15:14:00
Do not assume that a 600mm rack protector will pass impact testing over the full 600mm length of the product.
This 600mm Pallet Rack Guard made by a competitor passes the front impact test specified by EN, FEM, AS standards (a 400nm front impact up to a height of 400mm above the floor).
But will it pass the same impact test above 400mm from the floor?
Impact testing conducted in Germany in 2011 shows serious rack damage after an impact at a distance of approx 500mm from the base of the rack profile. View the video below
