Detroit-based Ideal Shield, a manufacturer of bumper-post sleeves, guardrails and handrails, introduced the Protective Guardrail System for high-traffic areas.
The guardrail only needs to be six inches from the wall or machinery, and comes in heavy or standard duty. It's made of schedule 80 and schedule 40 steel pipe sleeved in quarter-inch OSHA Yellow high-density polyethylene thermoplastic, and can be repositioned as floor plans change.
All guardrail sections are delivered fully assembled for core-in or base-plate installation. Standard or custom lengths and heights are available.
The Ideal Shield Heavy Guardrail can withstand multiple hits from a 12,000-pound forklift traveling 8 miles per hour, while the standard version withstands the force of the same forklift traveling 4 miles per hour.
