What should you look for to verify that a Rack Protector has undergone a valid impact test?

  • Look for an independent test report from a credible organization as evidence before purchasing a rack protector.

  • A large percentage of racks use less than 1.9mm(0.075") thick steel rack profiles. For this reason use only rack protectors that have been impact tested on 1.9mm profiles or thinner.

  • More than 50% of all impacts occur on the side of the upright.  For this reason use only rack protectors that offer both front AND side impact protection.

  • The standard method of measuring rack damage requires a full frame to be inspected. Question the validity of an impact test if it has not been impact tested on a full rack support frame assembly. Click here to see more.

  • Look for a Rack Protector that can be easily moved to allow inspection of the rack for damage.
  • Look for a Rack protector that does not damage the concrete floor. Repair to floors can be as costly as racking repairs.
  • Look for a rack protector that can resist impacts at low temperatures.
