Waukesha, WI – March 2017, Wildeck, Inc. – Material handling equipment and safety products manufacturer, Wildeck, Inc., has announced a new family of structural steel end-of-aisle rack protectors to guard against fork truck impact at rack aisle corners in busy storage facilities, warehouses, and distribution centers.

    • Wilgard® XT Rack Protectors are extra tough and have been designed for heavy-duty rack protection in high traffic areas.
    • Wilgard® MT Rack Protectors are designed for medium-duty rack protection and can provide an adequate barrier to forklift impact in everyday use.
    • Wilgard® LT Rack Protectors are intended for lighter-duty rack protection and provide a low-cost alternative to no rack protection at all.

    Wildeck will introduce its new family of Wilgard® end-of-aisle rack protectors in Booth # S-1012 at ProMat 2017, April 3-6, McCormick Place, Chicago, IL.

    “Wildeck’s new family of rack protectors will allow our customers to select the specific level of impact protection that meets their facility safety and budget requirements,” stated Hubert Schlegel – Director of Marketing for Wildeck. “When compared to plastic molded guards applied directly to rack uprights, Wildeck’s structural steel barriers provide a far superior solution,” stated Schlegel. “Wilgard® rack protectors are anchored directly to the concrete floor, not to the upright, and can help avoid serious damage by deflecting fork trucks or heavy carts that may cut corners when turning down aisles in a busy warehouse, 3PL, or DC.”

    Benefits of Wildeck’s new Wilgard® End-of-Aisle Rack Protectors:

    • Made-in-USA quality increases safety in warehouses and distribution centers
    • Helps avoid rack repairs, injury from falling materials, and costly downtime
    • Withstands fork truck impacts to rack uprights and avoids damage to expensive inventory
    • XT, MT, and LT designs permit user to choose the level of protection their budget allows
    • Available as individual “Right-” or “Left-Side” rack protectors, or as a unitized “Double-Headed” protector that guards the entire rack width
    • Quick and easy to install with the included anchor bolts

    According to Wildeck, customers no longer need to waste time shopping for the best safety product “deals.” Instead of simply offering one product, Wildeck has responded to feedback from customers whose needs and budgets are not all the same. At Modex 2016, Wildeck introduced their 3-Levels of protective Wilgard® Guard Rail, and now follows with the launch of 3-Levels of End-of-Aisle Wilgard® Rack Protectors that will debut at ProMat 2017.

    “It’s no longer one choice,” stated Schlegel. “The choice belongs with the customer, and now they have three. What a concept!”
