Racking protection – A-safe RackGuard and Leg Protecta

A-safe recently announced the introduction of RackGuard and Leg Protecta, the latter described as a simple, yet innovative protection device for safeguarding pallet racks. The company says this upright protector is highly versatile, manufactured from high impact-grade polymer, in sizes from 80mm up to 125mm.

To protect racking in warehouses, etc. from damage as a result of vehicle collisions, A-safe says RackGuard is the answer. The company quotes Stephen Fletcher, facilities department team leader for DHL: “[P]rotecting all our racking is essential. This is why we have worked closely with A-Safe to develop the model best suited to our needs.”

Continuous developments have been a hallmark, says A-Safe, which adds that it continues to evolve and grow in order to encompass its rapidly expanding international markets. Company directors James Smith and Luke Smith say they are committed to driving A-Safe to achieve worldwide success.

Commented James: “At A-Safe, we aim to be the best we can ever be. We do this by offering the most complete customer service from end to end – from initiating innovative design in meeting our clients’ exact needs, including products like RackGuard, to ensuring existing customers have the best after-care.”
