Any pallet rack system storing unsecured items can be vulnerable to having items jarred loose from the racking. Pallet racking is designed to make use of vertical space, but what goes up can also come down. Falling objects not only pose a threat to the safety of personnel but can cause expensive damages.
Pallet rack backing offers a high-strength defense against falling objects, including sharp and heavy-duty ones. Steel mesh panels are strong, durable, and won’t tear like safety netting.

Pallet rack safety is a major concern among warehouse operators, and its importance is only growing. One of the most effective ways to improve warehouse safety is to add pallet rack backing to one or more sides of a rack system.
Once in place, rack safety will go up as the likelihood of falling objects goes down dramatically. For clients with racking that faces an aisleway or special equipment, we often recommend installing rack backing panels as a standard safety precaution.
Falling objects can threaten the safety of personnel in aisleways, as well as special equipment located near the rack system. With pallet rack safety systems, you can protect both.
Rack backing panels are a strong and sturdy blockade against runaway objects. Fully-framed steel mesh panels can be re-slotted and are available in a range of sizes to fit almost any application.
The advantage of rack safety systems is simple: protect people, inventory, and equipment from the common hazard of falling objects in the warehouse.
Rack safety panels can also serve as security enclosures for valuable or sensitive inventory. Often times door panels used for security enclosures are similar to the rack backing panels but are welded in a way that adds even greater strength.
