This guard rail is too high guardrail with lift out rails for ease of working on the equipment when needed. Each section is 7 ft Long Center to center of column and 42 inches high.
Do you have something that could potentially fall off the back of your pallet rack into a pedestrian aisle or production area? If you do we have the product for you. We can install rack back panels to the back of your pallet rack to keep product from falling onto employees. This is one of our Key Safety features for pallet racking.

Therefore we install the single High guard rail with lift out rails in case they need to get to the equipment and adjusted or work on it. This section is 18 inches high by 5 foot long and will help keep this important equipment protected.

Conveyor systems help move your product down your production line. We can do gravity roller conveyor or automated powered conveyor systems.

Pallet rack safety is one of our most important services to our customers… In this case we have installed pallet load stop beams in this existing pallet rack. The load stop beams are 10′ long with a 6″ offset. This keeps the two pallets in a back to back rack system from hitting each other or pushing one pallet off the other side when loading.
In order to install these type of load stop beams we have to work with the warehouse operators to clear space so we can install. Our customer did a great job of moving material for us and we performed the work quickly and safely…

See the comment from our customer… “Phillip, Thank you and your team for your hard work.” Warehouse Manager / Production Manager.

Can you use teardrop style pallet rack as garment rack?

Sure you can! Our customer in Sanford, NC CUOC created a great way to use our standard teardrop pallet rack to store garments in their warehouse. They use threaded rod dropped down from the channel of the wire decking to hang 2″ round pipe. Then they just use coat hangers to hang on the pipe. The boxed goods and pallets can still be stored overhead.

20EP72 Bluff Edge of Dock provides safe and durable loading and unloading of trucks. We mounted an approach plate to the existing concrete dock and welded the edge of dock to the approach plate and secured to the face of the concrete dock with concrete wedge anchors. 20,000 lbs capacity with a 72″ wide usable plate that easily folds out and lays in the bed of the trailer. Dock bumpers are part of the edge dock.

Check out our latest large scale pallet rack storage system for one of our customers in North Carolina. This is their east coast distribution center. We used Interlake teardrop storage rack. 20′ high x 42″ deep double posted heavy duty uprights, 12′ long x 6.5″ face beams with 7,500# capacity per shelf level and 42″ deep x 46″ wide wire decks with 2,700# capacity per piece. We also installed end of aisle protection for the pallet rack and bolt on post protectors for added forklift damage protection.

Our customer needed a way to separate their warehouse area from their production area. We designed a Goff’s Curtain wall to do the job. Now the customer can keep their production area at a constant temperature and use less energy to do it. The curtain wall has two drive thru / walk thru strip door curtains for forklift traffic and worker access.

A roofing company in NC needed a rack to store heavy items. They acquired from us, one single bay of our used pallet rack. Many beams were used to avoid over stacking while still maximizing storage efficiency.

We installed a 14′ high x 29′ long outdoor industrial curtain in Greensboro, NC in November, 2016. The curtain is 28 oz. beige vinyl coated polyester material with welded sewn seams and welded seam hem construction. This outdoor curtain will provide protection from debris and water from going into the scrap metal bins. This industrial curtain is hooked to trolleys that ride in a 12 ga. galvanized steel track mounted to the existing awning.

Our customer in Martinville, VA needed storage for their great products. CMH and I helped design a teardrop pallet rack system to help their warehouse rack needs. We used new upright and wire decks, but we’re able to include used teardrop beams to recycle back into use. Great win for all.
