Are they easy to fit to columns?
Protect-it™ takes just seconds to install by hand. The design incorporates an ingenious spring clip design that enables Protect-it™ to securely grip the column and automatically adjust its width to suit a specific range of column sizes.
Why is the product so small?
Most impacts occur within 300mm (11.8”) from the floor. The small size of Protect-it™ delivers a number of benefits:
- Impact damage to protection devices typically occurs in a small area only.
- Being small allows damaged units to be replaced individually more cost effectively than single-piece products.
- A combination of colours (such as black and yellow) are recognised as safety colours.
What about safety inspections?
Protect-it™ takes just seconds to remove and re-install, allowing safety inspectors to conduct fast and effective visual inspections.
Do Protect-it™ Column Guards meet the necessary design standards?
Protect-it™ passes the frontal impact test specified in the European Racking Code FEM 10.2.02. This test applies an impact energy of 400Nm to the column (a 40kg (88lbs) weight dropped from a height of 1 metre or 39“).
