Modular Barrier Stops Fork Truck In Tracks


The Rite-Hite Aftermarket Corporation introduced the GuardRite® Sure-Stop Barrier System today which provides protection when it is critical to have a barrier that must stop a fork truck. The rugged GuardRite Sure-Stop is an 8-inch high barrier constructed from 3/16-inch formed cold rolled steel, and is reinforced with 7-inch wide by 3/8-inch full- height gussets for strength and durability. When anchored to a concrete floor, the Sure-Stop can stop a 10,000-pound fork truck with little or no deflection. “Research indicated that traditional steel railing was not the most effective product for may applications,” Rite-Hite Aftermarket President and CEO Paul Maly said. “We developed an alternative solution to help increase the safety of plants across the country.” The safety yellow painted GuardRite Sure-Stop Barrier System is available in 18, 24, 36, 48 or 60-inch lengths. Integral steel gussets provide the Sure-Stop with support to help stop powered material handling equipment, while anchoring hardware make the installation clean and easy. (more) The modularity of Sure-Stop makes it easy to adapt to many configurations. It can be used as a “stand-alone” barrier to protect building walls, or it can be incorporated with other barrier systems to create a highly visible barrier for pedestrians or material handling equipment.
