Rack Armour Australia

The Product - Rack Armour

Rack Armour incorporates a patented design that provides ongoing protection and outperforms conventional pallet racking protection.

It’s tough outer, or shock deflector, is made from an extremely tough polymer which can withstand significant impact and has persistence of shape to give ongoing protection as the unit reverts back to its original form.

The compact design is unique in that the curved edges deflect the impact away from the rack face.

The foam inner, or shock diffuser, acts to reduce inertia from any impact and diffuse the force along the whole length of the unit (600mm) rather than being concentrated at the point of impact. Any residual impact is therefore dissipated over a much larger area making it less likely to cause damage to your upright.

Our Design

The Outer - Deflector

The outer casing is made from high density polyethylene and is manufactured so as to posses a very strong internal cross linked polymer composition. The curved shape provides low friction coefficient with high deflecting properties. The combination of deflection and diffusion properties greatly reduces impact forces being transmitted to the vulnerable front and lateral faces of the rack upright.


The Foam Inner - Shock Isolator

The inner is made from closed cell polyethylene foam designed to induce inertia and an exaggerated path to shock forces. The shock isolator received residual impact energy from the external deflector, momentarily stores this energy and releases it over a longer period of time and the larger internal area. The remaining proportion of impact force is rebounded back through the external deflector and away from the racking.

Testing and Standards

Rack Armour Exceeds FEM 10.2.02 for front and side impacts

Rack Armour has recently undergone independent testing by Cardno (NSW) Pty Ltd, one of Australia's leading consulting engineering companies. David Beneke, Principal at Cardno supervised the testing and has confirmed that Rack Armour meets the standards set down for racking protection devices in FEM 10.2.02.

FEM 10.2.02 is the European testing standard upon which AS 4084 is based. FEM is the most internationally recognised and one of the most up to date (having been updated in 2001) of all testing standards. Rack Armour has met and exceeded the requirements of this standard for both front and side impacts, as certified by an expert, independent source.
