Steel Safety Bollards

Safety Bollards help protect warehouse equipment from scratches and dents, and employees from accidents, by creating a vertical physical barrier from fork trucks. Strong protection is provided by a square steel tube, measuring 5″ x 5″ x 3/16″, welded to a 10″ x 10″ x 3/8″ base plate, topped with a galvanized steel cap. Safety bollards are available in heights of 24″, 36″, and 42″.

Protect loading dock doors, in-plant office corners, and warehouse equipment. More Information: Wildeck Steel Safety Bollards
