Low Post Protector

VNose Low Post Protector

V-Nose Low Post Protector

Acting as an aisle deflector, the V-Nose rack upright post protector takes the force of impact by forklifts providing an extra layer of protection for your pallet rack. The V-Nose rack post protector mounts in front of upright columns along the aisles, providing protection against low forklift damage. The steel rack protector is installed by drilling into the concrete floor with a wedge anchor that is provided with each VGuard. This steel rack protection is ideal in warehouses that have narrow aisles because the chance of damaging your rack is greatly increased (approximately 56”-72” wide aisles). Although small, this V-nose pallet rack post protector offers the most cost-effective solution for protecting your rack but lacks full protection from high impacts. By protecting your pallet rack using our column guard, you’ll maximize the life span of your pallet rack and reduce the need for repairing damaged rack in the future. Veteran warehouse managers and safety experts understand the importance of investing in proper pallet racking corner post protector products, especially in higher risk areas. Knowing that accidents are inevitable, these safety managers recognize that the cost of replacing damaged uprights (considering unloading, disassembling, replacing and reloading the racks) exceed the initial investment of reinforcing their pallet rack with v-nose rack post protectors.
