RAMGuard Column Protection
Column Protection for Pallet Rack Uprights
The RAMGuard is a pallet rack column guard that provides superior protection compared to traditional column guards. It’s design uses a patented Rubber Armored Metal, which is molded out of energy absorbing rubber combined with a steel U-shape insert and force distributing rubber voids. The RAMGuard is able to absorb significantly more energy than traditional column guards when impacted.
- Prevents impacts to the pallet rack uprights from the front, side, and anywhere in between.
- Minimizes damage to pallet rack columns resulting from collisions.
- Guard stays secured to column without need for hardware or straps.
- Can sustain countless impacts without any loss of performance.
- Offers more protection and durability than commonly found plastic guards.
There are currently a wide array of products designed to keep columns safe and damage free from common impacts. Apart from reinforced columns, bumpers, and barriers built into the pallet racks themselves, aftermarket attachable guards are the next best option.
Each of these products serves a purpose and has value in certain situations, but none of the column guards on the market today are as versatile as the RAMGuard. After nearly two years of planning, development, and prototype designs, the new patented RAMGuard delivers the greatest impact resistance available in aftermarket column guards.
The design of the RAMGuard took nearly two years. After very detailed testing and retesting (and retesting), a chemically unique rubber compound finally met the standard set for durability, density, and impact absorption. The chart below breaks down the energy absorbing ability of several different materials that are frequently used to make guards. Elastomers, as you can see, offer much greater impact absorbing ability than the alternatives. This is why elastomers make up the initial protective barrier on the RAMGuard.
After the rubber compound was selected, next on the list was finding a steel insert that would maximize impact protection from all sides. After the patented U-shaped steel plate was chosen, rubber voids were added to assist in the energy distribution from impacts.
