Apex Pallet Rack Column Protectors

The Shin Guard of the Pallet Rack World

Contact Us Today!

Pallet rack column protectors come in many shapes, sizes and materials. Post protectors are added just above the base of the column to shield the upright at the most critical impact point. Some column guards, however, are designed to “hug” the column while others are flush with the front of the column. Some shaped guards come with bullnose design, however the bullnose version can also be added separately to some models if required later. Column guards are usually painted safety yellow to be easily seen. Apex system designers can specify the best column guards for your needs.


  • Standard heights: 6”- 48”

Design Options

  • Bolt-on
  • Floor Mounted

Bolt-on column protectors are bolted directly to the column’s teardrop holes. A cautionary note for bolt-on column guarding is that if the guard is hit, the strike force will transfer to the column and potentially cause damage. This design protrudes approximately 3” into aisle.

Floor-mounted column guards are free-standing and mounted in front of the column. They are anchored into floor via a baseplate feature and they protrude approximately 1” to 2” into the aisle.
