Rack End Barriers

Rack End Barriers are designed to protect racking from vehicle collisions. Machine handling equipment, like forklifts, are used to load and unload items from racking systems. These machines are large and often operate in narrow spaces with decreased visibility. Therefore, collisions are common, and repeated impacts can damage the system's integrity. Rack-end barriers provide a layer of protection between warehouse machinery and racking.


Rack-end barriers are designed to minimize impact from machinery. They are made from a durable, flexible HDPE polymer with a foam diffuser. These are highly visible and designed to deflect under impact without getting damaged.


The Rack End Barriers are available in single or double barrier styles, with two size options – 1200mm (~47 inches) and 2400 mm (~95 inches). Each variety comes in three colors:

  • Colorfast yellow and grey
  • Hi-Vis, yellow and blue
  • Safety yellow and grey

Aisle and Floor Markers 

Markers are designed to highlight areas within a business. It allows workers or customers to locate a product or service quickly. This saves time and improves identification, which is essential in fast-paced work environments like warehouses. 

Aisle markers are used to identify aisles or bays in a warehouse, while floor markers highlight various areas in the facility and inform about important messaging. For example, check out the Half-Circle Floor Marker below. 

Half-Circle Floor Markers are large floor graphic markers for use on various surfaces. It is available in 12 text designs and eight non-text designs. They are made from anti-slip laminate and feature a strong, permanent adhesive to stop them from peeling and lifting. Design options include:
