Warehouse Barriers & Damage Protection

The best way to look after your warehouse is to ensure you have the best damage prevention in place.

Broken or damaged steel bollards, rails, or angle irons can impact the daily operation of your warehouse resulting in wasted time and additional costs. Warehouse protection is a growing area within the warehouse storage market, technical advances mean that the standard metal barrier you may have installed which are chipped, battered and scarred from lorry and forklift damage is no longer the best option for your warehouse damage prevention.

We have a toolkit of warehouse barrier solutions specifically designed to deflect glancing blows, absorb impacts, non-chipping and reduce your barrier maintenance costs.


  • Improved strength
  • Our warehouse barriers are engineered from the ground up and flex to absorb energy and soften impacts, their ends, corners and connectors are all made from ductile iron – an alloy engineered for exceptional strength, impact and fatigue resistance.
  • No more chips
  • Our special formula paint does not chip or dent when hit, meaning there are no yellow scuffs left on mechanical handling equipment, lorries or forklifts and no ugly marks left on the barrier itself. Keeping your warehouse looking clean.
  • No concrete floor damage

Because our warehouse barriers and bollards are engineered to flex and absorb impact they protect your concrete floors. Metal systems are rigid and are not designed to absorb impact meaning that when there are substantial impact floor bolts will suffer and damage surrounding flooring.

Additional benefits.

  • Quick Installation
  • Installs fast, protects for years
  • TUV Certified

Damage Prevention Options available:

Bollard Systems

FlexCore Bollards – Offered in 450mm our FlexCore bollards are engineered for strength and are designed to be easier on your equipment.

Deflector Posts – Protects against glancing blows, distributes energy by rocking and spinning. Ideal for high-traffic corners.

Goal Posts – Designed to flex and spin and absorb damaging impacts, no welding required and installed within minutes.

Crash Barriers – Floor mounted barriers are ideal for protecting wall perimeters, framing off certain areas and creating traffic lanes. Impact energy is absorbed and dissipated through the barrier before reaching the floor causing unnecessary damage to surrounding areas.

Pedestrian Safety

Impact absorbing safety & crash barriers – fully customisable, flexible and tough, easy to install and replace. Add an extra level of protection with a modular barrier.


Rack End Protectors – These protectors diffuse impact with each bump or hit and stop pallet trucks or forklifts with a calculated amount of energy absorption. Fully customisable to fit any racking bay and no exposed hardware.

Rack Mounted Guard – Simply wrap the straps around racking legs to absorb impact. Available in a variety of sizes, made from polyethylene provides durability and strength. Quick installation using hook and loop fastening straps.

Shock Absorbing Rack Guard – Designed to protect pallet rack columns from damaging blows, our Rack Guards are heavy duty industrial shock absorbers, the single anchor design saves installation time and is engineered to stand up to common bumps.
