Column protectors are a barrier that you put in front of your pallet rack upright frames to guard against forklift damage. There are two different styles, the floor anchored column protector and the bolt-on column protector. Although the floor anchored post protector is more common the bolt-on post protector is coming on strong.
Bolt on post protectors are exactly what they sound like. They bolt onto the upright column and do not need to be anchored to the floor. That saves you from having to drill additional holes in your concrete floor.
A seasoned warehouse manager knows that an initial investment in upright column protection will pay off many times over in reduced rack damage. Consider this, if you damage and upright frame with a forklift you will have to incur the cost of replacement upright, freight cost of replacement upright, disassembly cost of damaged upright and reinstallation cost of replacement upright – which can easily exceed $1000.00 for a single upright.
