Testing

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.
