Protect-it™ stackable rack guard tech info
Protect-it™ stackable rack guards are easy installed with no drilling or separate fasteners. The spring clip design ensures a secure grip to the rack upright.
Protect-it™ rack guards are manufactured from ultra high impact polyethylene (HDPE) with the following features:
Food grade - when used in accordance with FDA application guidelines, Protect-it™ products meet the requirements of FDA 21 CFR 177.1520 (c) 3.1a and AS2070-1999 section 4.1.1(a)
Flammability - DIN 4102 B2: normal combustibility
Recyclable through most curbside recycling programs.
Our testing process utilises Finite Element Analysis (FEA); a computerised method for predicting how a product reacts to real-world forces, Physical Impact Testing and life testing. Protect-it™ pallet rack guards are independently tested for front and side impact.
Impact testing is supervised and reported by Bureau Veritas
Impact testing is undertaken in accordance with the following racking standards:
Europe - EN 15512-2009 & FEM 10.2.10
Australia - AS4084-201
All impact tests are conducted using a full rack support frame assembly, as per standards requirements.
