Planning a guardrail system for your warehouse can seem daunting.

We offer guardrail products that enhance the safety of your manufacturing plant or commercial facility. Our powder-coated yellow guardrails, ideal for indoor use, serve as a powerful visual and physical barrier, protecting your people, equipment, building, and product.

We strive to make it easy for architects and specifiers to plan new guardrail installations using our Engineering Product Specifications. Our guardrail components are designed in accordance with NBC, AISC, and CSA standards listed in §13145.3.

Our Guardsmith® Lineup of Products Includes:

Guardsmith® Guardrail is ideal for indoor use. Create walkways and protected areas on your plant or warehouse floor. Yellow industrial guardrail can be used to protect everything from sensitive electrical equipment to in-plant office walls and wire cages in your warehouse.

Notchguard® Guardrail prevents forklift damage. Operators conforming forklift industry safety guidelines travel with the forks 6” to 8” off the ground. Notchguard’s unique design prevents these forks from encroaching on product stored on the other side of the rail.

Exteriorguard® Guardrail is intended for outdoor use. With the assurance of a 1000 hour salt spray test, you can be certain that Exteriorguard® will stand up to harsh outdoor environments while protecting your building, equipment, walkways and more.
