Tunnel Guards

Tunnel guards are a component (or set of components) placed between the beams and stored goods over an access aisle or fire escape positioned behind pallet racking.

A number of different components can be used as tunnel guards:

Without falling product protection:

  • Half Pallet Supports – These provide additional support to pallets, but do not offer any protection from falling goods.
  • Half Pallet Supports (Welded) – These provide additional support to pallets, but do not offer any protection from falling goods.

With falling product protection:

  • Chipboard Decking – Generally used for lighter weight boxed products these DO protect against falling goods.
  • Galvanised steel shelf panels – These can provide a greater load capacity over chipboard decking and DO protect against falling goods.
  • Wire Mesh Decking – These provide additional support to pallets and DO protect against falling goods.
  • Wooden Decking – These provide additional support to pallets and DO protect against falling goods.
  • Grating Modules – These provide additional support to pallets and DO protect against falling goods.

The load capacity and finish is dependent upon the type of tunnel guard used.  They can also be manufactured to suit your application.
