  • Colby Protect-a-RACK

Improve safety & cut damage costs

Even the best forklift drivers have accidental collisions with racking. While worst-case scenarios involving a rack collapse are rare, impact damage weakens the racking structure, compromising its load carrying capacity and potentially putting both property and life at risk.

The patented Colby Protect-a-RACK protection system uses the strongest part of the rack to brace for an impact from a forklift. Even heavy users with high throughputs tell us that this smart product dramatically reduces damage. Colby Protect-a-RACK comes in a range of shapes, sizes and configurations to protect your valuable equipment. It's completely priced and generally has a very short return on investment. 

Protect your business and your people with Colby Protect-a-RACK

Designed to fit just about every type of rack upright, the Colby Protect-a-RACK outperforms traditional steel and plastic rack protection systems through its unique, innovative design and ease of installation.

  • Manufactured from heavy duty steel
  • Versatile design fits any type of racking
  • Simple, fast and cost-effective installation
  • Streamlined design maximises clear bay entry
  • Certified and patented design

"The Colby Protect-a-RACK’s have done their job superbly. Over the past 12 months, we have experienced minimal rack damage and enjoyed a safer workplace thanks to them and Colby Storage Solutions' smart warehouse layout." Terry Wicks, Distribution Centre Manager, Westgate Logistics

  • Heavy Duty Front Impact Beam 

We listen to our customers. When one told us about the damage caused to beams by frontal impact from accidental collision, Colby developed a new beam with a rib in the centre. This new, patented concept might not be the prettiest beam on the market, but it sure does a great job of reducing damage. 

  • RackMAN Certification

RackMAN is a proprietary software tool designed by some of the world's leading structural engineers. RackMAN certification means that your system will meet the necessary safety standards. It will give you the peace of mind to know that your goods and your staff are secure in your Colby installation. 

  • Safety Signs

All new installations come complete with signage detailing safe operation. We meet all standards and take into account bay and column loads. Rest assured, all products meet the highest standards of safety. 

  • Audits & Safety Inspections

Storage Ideas treat safety as a top priority. Ask us about our regular "health" check to audit and inspect your system. We will make recommendations to repair damage and bring your system back to safe operating standard.
