FEATURES AND BENEFITS

    • Allows heat to escape through the flue to the sprinklers above, initiating sprinklers quicker
    • Improves sprinkler performance by allowing water to reach lower inventory levels through open flue space
    • Encourages the fire to spread vertically through the flue space rather than horizontally, potentially spreading to other rows of rack
  • Prevents pallet push through which causes blockage in longitudinal flue spaces
  • Allows for perfect pallet placement, keeping your warehouse aesthetically appealing and safer
  • Works with all brands of racking, roll-formed or structural
  • Fits beams of any length or depth, no need to order different length beams
  • Compact size and low weight saves on freight costs compared to pallet back stops
  • Quick and easy installation saves on labor costs – only 1 installer needed

 

  • Sturdy box design and robotically welded for exceptional strength
  • Only requires one flue space divider for every two pallets (back-to-back)
