GuardRail – Genco Distribution Co. [Case Study]

Author: - 8216 Views

Project: Genco Distribution Co. – Indianapolis, IN

Dealer: Professional Garage Door Systems – Plainfield, IN

guard-rail-protecting-facility-popup-officeGenco Distribution Company was in the process of remodeling a newly acquired building. Professional Garage Door Systems was working with Genco on new overhead dock doors and other dock equipment. Part of the bid process was also providing industrial safety guardrail throughout the remodeled building.

The specifications originally called out simply a highway guardrail. Professional Garage introduced Genco to the WireCrafters GuardRail product. WireCrafters GuardRail is a bolt up safety guardrail system that comes in both 17” single high and 42” double high models. Genco elected to use both the single and double high GuardRail dependant upon where they needed the GuardRail installed. The project was required to provide both safety and protection from forklift traffic within the facility.

Double high GuardRail was used in areas where safety was being provided for pedestrian traffic. With fork trucks actively moving up and down the aisles of the distribution center, the GuardRail provides safety for the workers as they move about the facility filling orders.

Single high GuardRail was installed along newly renovated drywall facility walls to protect the interior walls of the building. In-plant office buildings that typically have forklift traffic around them at all times utilized the GuardRail to protect the personnel working inside these modular offices.

WireCrafters-Yellow-GuardRail-Safety-SystemWireCrafters GuardRail was installed in one foot increments from 1’-0” wide to 10’-0” wide sections to achieve the different lengths required inside the distribution facility. The bright safety yellow rails were bolted to 4” square uprights using hardware that was provided; including the 3/4” x 4-1/4” floor anchors.

Genco was very pleased with the safety and protection the WireCrafters GuardRail system provided within their distribution facility, and was especially happy with Professional Garage Door Systems for the guidance on this project.
