Welcome to another episode of Mondays With Milt. Today, we’ve got something exciting going on: we’re going to be testing our GuardRail. So what we have to prove is that we can have a 10,000-pound load come directly at our GuardRail at four miles per hour. Now, that’s going to be pretty cool.
So here in a moment, we’re going to get it going and I’m going to get out of the way because I don’t want to be a part of that 10,000-pound crash. Let’s see what happens.
*cue serious music*
3... 2... 1... Go!
Well, we had a successful run here at our GuardRail. Qe actually had 10,250 pounds on the fork truck. We were going 4.5 miles per hour. We hit this GuardRail, and as you can see, it held up great. We’ve got 4 anchors (3/4” x 4-1/2” wedge anchors) that held up well in the concrete. The rails are still attached to the post.
If there’s an accident in your facility, this GuardRail can keep you protected. We look forward to seeing you again next week on Mondays With Milt.
At WireCrafters, we don't just care about great products, we are dedicated to your safety, too. WireCrafters manufactures both a specialized GuardRail and HandRail. These protective railing systems are easily bolted together and useful in industrial, commercial, and government facilities.
The GuardRail, which is featured in this video, is used to protect in-plant offices, large electrical panels and separate people from areas where forklift traffic occurs. Single and double high rails are available and lift out kits where access may be needed in a protected area.
