Where To Find New Rack Safety Products At ProMat 2023

With more than 1,000 exhibitors, you may be wondering where to find new rack safety products at ProMat 2023? Check out exhibits from members of the Rack Manufacturers Institute (RMI) and members of the Protective Guarding Manufacturers Association (ProGMA). Their booths will highlight the latest pallet rack systems and protective guarding products designed to safeguard personnel, facility structures, and inventory. Consequently, attendees will find proven solutions and new technologies that improve the safety of new and existing industrial steel storage rack.

“RMI Members are highly responsive to the evolution and growth direction of the material handling market. ProMat is an opportunity to see the results of that focused research,” said Jonathan Hirst, Vice President and General Manager of RMI member North American Storage Equipment.

“Traditional retail and e-commerce sales volumes grew again last year by over 15%,” he continued. “That growth is tasking RMI members to support the market with responsive and efficient storage solutions, as well as communicating critical health and safety best practices. These include racking protection and inspections.”

Ray Niemeyer, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at SpaceGuard Products, a member of ProGMA, agreed. “Rack guards, repair and containment systems have become a key expectation for personnel and product safety in the high-speed, fast-moving supply chain environment.”

Furthermore, the variety of protective guarding and safety products available to safeguard an operation covers a broad range of areas, he noted.

“These include from facility, equipment, and personnel guarding, plus access and security. These solutions will be on display throughout ProMat 2023 by ProGMA members,” added Niemeyer. “Attendees will see the gamut: bollards and guarding for racks, docks, and machines; rack repair solutions; safety gates; netting, wire mesh panels, and more. The vast selection of industry safety solutions all on one show floor makes this one worth attending.”
