Accessories for Drive In Pallet Racking

Rub Rail: Heavy horizontal impact channel used at floor level to protect upright or frame from vehicle or pallet damage.  
Post Protectors: Heavy structural steel protectors affords added security against abuse from handling equipment.
Space Saver Arm: When vertical space is an important consideration, rails can be mounted at the same height as support arms. This saves 3” of height for each rail.
Mitered Entry: Sharp corners on support rails can be mitered off for increased safety. This may be used at lower levels where hand picking is done.
Reel Support Bracket: Easily converts standard rack to reel-on coil storage. (Sold in pairs only. Axles not included.)
Row End Protectors: Structural steel channels used at the end of each aisle serve as a guard preventing frame damage.
Slant-Back Frame: For areas where space restrictions may create a hazard for trucks, a slant-back frame can provide a  necessary margin for safety.
Flared Entries: Rails can be flared out at the entry point for easier, faster pallet positioning,  safer handling and less damage.
