Detroit-based Ideal Shield, a manufacturer of bumper-post sleeves, guardrails and handrails, has released its new Goal Posts to protect loading docks and doors from damage by trucks and forklifts. The product protects doors of almost any width ranging in height from 8 to 16 feet. Goal Posts work in all plant, warehouse and distribution-center settings that have dock or high-speed doors.
Made of schedule-40 steel pipe and sleeved in quarter-inch, OSHA yellow, high-density polyethylene thermoplastic, Goal Posts are delivered in three sections for core-in or base-plate installation. They are maintenance-free and easy to install wherever door protection is a concern.
In business since 1996, Ideal Shield has five manufacturing facilities. As the holder of 43 patents, with an additional seven pending, the company provides protection solutions to fit many facility needs.
