Superior Column Protection

RAMGuard with Adjustable Straps

RAMGuard™ provides superior rack column protection with its patented Rubber Armored Metal design. Molded of energy absorbing rubber with a "U-shaped" steel insert and force distributing rubber voids, RAMGuard absorbs significantly more energy during impact than most column protection devices offered today.

RAMGuard™ Advantages

  • Protects rack structures from frontal, angled and side impacts
  • Significantly lowers impact damage to pallet rack columns
  • Requires no hardware or straps to retain the guard on column
  • Endures many impacts with no loss of performance
  • Significantly outperforms most plastic guards commonly used today

Available in 12-inch heights, RAMGuard snaps onto rolled or structural steel columns 3-inches wide and
up to 3-inches deep.

Why Invest in RAMGUARDS?

There is a wide range of products designed to help protect pallet rack columns from the everyday abuses that commonly occur in busy warehouse environments. These products include steel reinforced columns, slat-back or offset frames, floor-mounted steel guards, bumpers, barriers and after market attachable guards. Each of these serves a purpose and makes sense in different applications.

However, there has never been anything like RAMGuard!

First, it provides maximum impact protection against costly column and frame damage. It's solid rubber construction with a steel plate insert is tougher than any plastic guard and most other products on the market.

Second is its durability. Because of its robust construction properties, The RAMGuard can withstand repeated impacts with no loss in protective qualities. During testing, The RAMGuard sustained 25 impacts with no loss in effectiveness.

Third, toolless installation with no anchors or bolts like steel aftermarket guards.

Finally, new High Visibility Velcro straps help fork lift operators see the guards to safely guide their loads into position. They also provide additional retention strength in high traffic/contact areas.

RAMGuard's Construction

After nearly two years of development, testing and proto-type designs, the new patented RAMGuard delivers the greatest impact resistance available in aftermarket column guards. Through extensive testing and evaluation, a specific rubber compound was formulated to provide a balance between durability, density and impact absorption qualities. The chart below shows the energy absorbing capacity of various materials that are commonly used in column guards. Clearly, this shows elastomers offer some far greater absorbing properties than other materials. The results speak for themselves!

Watch Impact Testing

Impact testing to FEM 10.2.02 standards has shown the RAMGuard dissipates more impact energy and better distributes impact forces than competitive guards resulting in no damage to the column or the guard. During extensive frontal and 45° angle testing, the same RAMGuard protector easily withstood more than 20 identical hits without allowing any damage to the column.

  • Energy absorbing elastomer guards outperform plastic guards
  • Elastomer guards lower the peak acceleration levels at the column
  • Elastomer guard with steel reinforcement will endure multiple impacts with no loss of performance*
