Pallet Rack Safety Bars

Pallet rack safety bars prevent pallets from accidentally falling through the spacing between beams in a racking system and are an important part of designing and operating a safe storage system. Without safety bars, loads can fall between beams and become wedged. When this happens, forklift operators often react instinctively which creates the potential for serious damage to the system and themselves. Dislodging a pallet typically requires product unloading which can be difficult and unsafe, particularly when operating at heights.

Pallet Rack Safety Bar Styles

Lock-in pallet rack safety bars

Lock-In Safety Bars

This style of safety bar is designed to rest on the interior ledge of a roll formed step beam. They lock into place mechanically with prongs that extend into the slots on the beam ledge. There are several brands of racking that have different slot patterns and therefore are not compatible with each other. If you are adding to an existing system, it is important to ensure compatibility.

Drop-in pallet rack safety bars

Drop-In Safety Bars

This style of safety bar is designed for use with roll formed box style beams. Cup sizes are typically 40mm for 1.5” deep beams or 50mm for up to 1.9” deep beams. Optionally, they can be secured to the beam with the use of a Tek screw to prevent movement.

Flanged  pallet rack safety bars

Flanged Safety Bars

Sometimes referred to as “Universal”, this style of safety bar can be used with either box or step beams and can be secured to the beam face with a Tek screw to prevent movement.
