New video - made public for the first time - shows toughness of Wilgard® Guard Rail for protecting facility equipment and personnel.
Waukesha, WI – To demonstrate the integrity and toughness of Wildeck’s comprehensive lineup of safety guard rail, the company has posted a new impact crash test video on its website at wildeck.com.
According to Jim Hathaway, Sales Specialist for Wildeck® Guarding Products, “We decided to post the recent Wilgard® impact test video on our website to assist Wildeck’s nationwide network of Material Handling Dealers in showing the effectiveness and superiority of Wilgard® safety guard rail. The video replicates Wildeck’s original forklift truck impact test performed in January 1989 and reinforces the fact that Wilgard® protective guard rail remains as durable and strong today as it was over 19 years ago.”
Wildeck demonstrated that under test conditions (witnessed, signed and notarized by a Registered Professional Engineer), its Wilgard® protective guard rail system absorbed a 13,000 lb. load impact at 4 mph without failure. Wildeck manufactures an extensive range of safety guarding products for protecting expensive equipment and machines, warehouse and distribution center inventory, shielding work areas and in-plant offices, and defining traffic areas to keep personnel safe from fork trucks or other moving vehicles.
A Maintenance Engineer at a major 3PL (Third Part Logistics Center) stated, “Installing Wilgard® safety products, especially at aisle corners and other critical areas, has provided the protection and piece-of-mind we need. We have tried other protectors, but they were not made as well. The Wilgard® product we use has proven itself and the quality is better.”Wildeck, Inc. is the largest manufacturer of mezzanines, vertical lifts (VRCs), and safety guarding products in North America for the safe and efficient handling, storage, and movement of materials.
