Apex Pallet Rack End Row Guards

Heavy-Duty Rack Protection Where You Need it Most

Contact Us Today!

End row guards are heavy steel sections that attach to uprights positioned at the end of a row of pallet rack where posts are most vulnerable to forklift traffic. Because end row guards see a tremendous amount of forklift traffic, they are typically anchored to the floor and often run the full width of the row. End row guards are usually painted bright yellow to make them easy to see… and hopefully to avoid.

Contact the Apex professionals for end row guard design ideas that compliment your pallet rack system and warehouse traffic flow and be sure to ask about our forklift training video series.


  • Average range 12” high rounded around upright
  • Available in heavy duty (.375”) and medium duty (.25″) thickness
  • Protects 3” or 4” wide x 42”- 48” deep uprights for single rows and longer for protecting back-to-back rows
  • Left & right hand orientation for back to back rack configuration
  • Powder coated “Safety Yellow”
  • Washdown compliant & rust resistant

Design Options

  • Round – Round end row guards are typically single-sided, either left or right… or they can be designed as double-sided which serves as one formed guard for both sides. End row guards are rounded to cradle around upright and then extend along the rack width.
  • Formed – Formed end row guards are 10-gauge steel rails made in lengths up to 12′. It is a straight design and is anchored via a base plate connection in front of the rack upright.
