Warehouse Guard Rails and Installation Services
Physical barriers are key to creating safe and efficient warehouse facilities. Barriers—such as pedestrian guard rails, traffic barriers, and forklift curb guards—enhance workplace safety by:
- Protecting workers from potential dangers
- Shielding equipment from collisions and other workplace accidents
- Fortifying structures against impact damage
To enhance workplace safety, Banks Industrial Group sells and installs A-SAFE warehouse guard rails. Suitable for both warehouses and other industrial facilities, A-SAFE guard rails use state-of-the-art polymers called MEMAPLEX and multi-component engineering for superior performance and longevity. A-SAFE’s design enables the barriers to flex and fully recover after repeated impacts, leading to fewer repairs, lower annual maintenance, and greater worker protection.

Antiquated Steel Barriers Drive Up Maintenance and Repair Costs
Warehouse operators typically use steel barriers to protect their assets and infrastructure. Over time, forklift drivers inevitably hit these barriers again and again. To remain functional after repeat impacts, steel barriers must be professionally repaired and serviced.
If a steel guard rail is hit hard enough by a forklift, not only does it need to be replaced, but collision will also damage the floor where the rail was bolted. In these scenarios, facility operators must contend with:
- Loss of product
- Vehicle damage
- Operator injuries
In addition to these cost factors, the resulting downtime will also negatively affect your bottom line. Unplanned downtime has a ripple effect—it can significantly increase costs, threaten production goals, and often causes downstream problems that magnify its consequences.

Flexible Warehouse Guard Rails from A-SAFE Create Long-Term Savings
A-SAFE warehouse guard rails offer better protection and longer lifespans than steel barriers. Flexible polymer is three times stronger than steel and absorbs 80% of impacts. A-SAFE’s polymer construction enables the guard rails to rebound to their original positions for continued protection. A combination of the internal mechanical design and the flexible polymer also redirects the impact away from the floor anchors, significantly reducing the chance of floor damage during a collision.
A-SAFE barriers also protect forklifts from damage. Metal guard rails deflect impacts and shield what is behind them at the expense of the forklift and the guard rail itself. Once a metal guard rail is hit, not only do you have to repair or replace the barrier, but you have to fix the vehicle as well.
Altogether, A-SAFE guard rails save you from costs associated with the following:
- Barrier replacement
- Vehicle damage
- Floor repair
- Equipment/infrastructure damage
- Human injury
In addition to these savings, no repainting is required. The self-colored yellow polymer hides scrapes for lasting visibility. Overall, you can expect a return on investment in just 19 months or less from reduced maintenance needs, lower repair costs, general incident prevention, and downtime avoidance.
