Fall Protection OSHA Guidelines
In 2015, "fall protection" was listed as OSHA's number 1 most-cited violation and topped the list of "serious" and "willful" violations. An OSHA violation is a serious matter, and it's more fiscally and socially responsible to take precautions before someone is injured or your facility is identified as non-compliant. Pallet rack safety panels are a cost-effective way to guard employees from falling objects and OSHA hazards to protect workers and stay within compliance with one solution that protects both inventory and workers.

Safety Panels Prevent Falls & Spills
By bolting directly to the back of existing pallet rack uprights, the wire mesh panels create a durable barrier between stored items and the ground that is more effective than netting-style backing. No professional installers are required, as the panels are quick and easy to install with minimal downtime.
The pallet rack safety panels are constructed from 2" x 2" x 10 gauge steel welded wire mesh on a 1 1/4" x 1 1/4" x 13 gauge steel angle frame. The panels have pre-drilled mounting holes and are provided with flush mount or offset brackets, which allows the panels to be mounted on pallets that overhang. There are multiple attachment points, allowing the panels to be started at the floor or at any level where you need protection.
Standard panels are 4' or 5' high with matching beam lengths; stock items typically ship within 48 hours. To reach the desired height, simply stack the panels on top of each other. The "building block" system allows you to easily add to, remove, or reconfigure the panels quickly at any time and without professional installers. Heavier options are also available for heavy-duty applications.
