Added Safety Built Right In

Contact Us Today!

A heavy-duty horizontal strut, also known as a rub rail, may not be the yellow safety guard, but it is an important pallet rack safety feature that can be built right into the rack design for additional end-of-aisle strike protection. This unique strut is typically used for rack that will see a tremendous amount of forklift traffic as it is useful for guarding the rack frame from bending or twisting if impacted by warehouse equipment.

Heavy-duty horizontal struts are made of heavy steel sections and are bolted or welded across the full width of the row. Additional sections can be added for greater protection.


  • Heavy-duty structural or roll-formed steel
  • Bolted or welded to pallet rack
  • Customizable to meet rack capacity specification
  • Run full width of pallet rack row
  • Painted to match rack system
