LT Rack Sentry — Cold Room/Freezer Rack Protection Product Introduced

Protecting pallet racks in cold rooms or freezers (down to –30 degrees Fahrenheit) is newly possible with LT Rack Sentry® ( )– a reformulation of the energy absorbing rack protectors pioneered by Sentry Protection Products that is specifically engineered to absorb collision impacts in colder environments.   

Rack Sentry LT makes the troublesome steel protectors used in many cold storage environments obsolete, and provides a low-cost virtually zero maintenance way to protect racks, inventory, lift trucks and workers operating in cold room or freezer room environments from collision damages.  

Jim Ryan, General Manager of Sentry Protection Products explains, “Rack Sentry® has changed rack pallet upright protection for worldwide plants, warehouses, retailers, wholesalers, distribution centers and hospitals, among others.  Before Rack Sentry was introduced, the only method used to protect racks involved using steel protectors bolted to floors, which more often than not damaged floors when there were collision impacts—sometimes irreparably.  The unique composite materials in the original Rack Sentry effectively absorb impacts and return to shape again and again without damage.  However, use of Rack Sentry was limited to normal temperature environments where the energy absorbing formulation retained this ability to return to shape.  Now, after considerable research and testing, Rack Sentry LT has been developed to work in colder environments without becoming brittle or losing effectiveness.   Rack Sentry LT installations can be expected to help many with cold rooms or freezer storage significantly cut operating costs by eliminating repair costs to structures, lift trucks, rack uprights and making collision-caused workers comp incidents a thing of the past.” 

Rack Sentry LT is available in the same size ranges as the original Rack Sentry, including 3” (75 mm), 3.25 “ (80 mm), 3.5 “ (90 mm), and 4” (100 mm) widths.  Rack Sentry LT is also available in the unique End and Cut-out varieties configured for use on uprights with low horizontal beams.
