Ideal Shield Guardrail System

Ideal Shield Standard Guardrail System is stronger than most competitor’s heavy-duty guardrails and are sleeved in a durable HDPE plastic.

Why is an Ideal Guardrail System Better?

Ideal Shield Standard Guardrail System is the market’s premier solution to protecting your facility’s most valuable assets – people and equipment.

Stronger than the competitor’s heavy-duty guardrail, these Standard Guardrail Systems are available in both one or two line rails and are sleeved in a durable HDPE plastic, requiring no maintenance or painting. This means that you’ll be saving money on possible accidents as well as maintenance and labor fees moving forward.

Unlike traditional-welded or bolt-down systems that require the rail to be replaced after an impact, the unique design of the guardrail can withstand multiple impacts from a 12,000lb forklift traveling 4 mph. When Ideal’s guardrail is hit, the shock is distributed throughout the entire section, resulting in zero deflection to maximize floor space and limit damage as much as possible. The anchor system is cost efficient and super strong. The same cannot be said for the competitor’s guardrail.

Choosing the Right Guardrail

In terms of customization, these safety guardrails are available in two different colors include highly visible safety yellow, and gunmetal gray – a high-end alternative to galvanized rail. The Standard guardrail is also available in a variety of sizes, heights and mounting options thanks to the fact that all of the manufacturing takes place right here in the United States from a company that manufactures high quality products that are very durable.

Safety Guidelines

Ideal shield character and integrity means their manufactured products will have top notch safety. While the standard guardrail can withstand multiple collisions from 12,000 lb forklifts traveling 4 mph, the Heavy Duty Industrial Guardrail can handle a forklift traveling 8 mph when cored. Because it's sturdy, it is able to meet proper safety guidelines any company would want for guardrail in their warehouse.
