What Makes FlexiShield Column Protectors Different?

In short, they are engineered for performance! FlexiShield column protectors can take a hit and rebound so you don't need to replace them. A-SAFE products have built-in memory that allows them to flex, dissipate impact energy and recover for continued protection. FlexiShield's chevron and rectangular indents increase the surface area providing more material for energy absorption and less flat space exposed to fork penetration.

FlexiShield column protectors stack modularly to fit all square and rectangular universal columns. They can accommodate multiple heights. Multiple column protectors lock in place and act as an integrated unit to transfer impact energy throughout the entire system, even at increased heights.

  • Tested and rated for 4,000lb. impact at 3mph
  • Modular and adaptable to ensure a perfect fit to all square and rectangular universal columns
  • Outer chevron and rectangular indents remove flat surfaces vulnerable to fork penetration
  • High-strength structural support ribs increase rigidity and maximize impact resistance
  • Air chamber regulators allow controlled release of air compression to evenly dissipate energy throughout the column protector
  • Encloses and protects column base plate and anchors
  • Versatile ambient temperature range – flexible polyethylene allows for impact resistance at temp range of 14° to 122°F

How Can I Protect Non-Standard Shape Columns?

Modular iFlexRail column guard rails are adaptable to fit building columns and supports in any size or shape including: square, rectangular, circular or irregular. iFlex guard rails can also be supplied as two or three sided units to safeguard columns located corners or in front of walls. Rails are set apart from the column to isolate and absorb collision away from the structure.

  • Provides visual guidance to drivers and robust protection for vulnerable structures
  • iFlexRail Column Guard is rated for 7,000lb. impact at 5mph
  • iFlexRail Column Guard+ with traffic rail is rated for 12,000lb. impact at 5mph
