Channel Rail is a modular forklift separation system.
We developed channel rail for one of Australia’s largest retail companies to use in their new ‘mega’ distribution centres around the country. Our client brief was for a system which was completely modular, required no on-site welding during installation and required only basic hand tools to replace damaged components.
A key feature was that it had to protect the pedestrians from forklift tines, as forks move about the site. This latter feature is accomplished by using an outwardly facing 200mm high by 6mm thick galvanised channel to trap the fork tines and prevent them deflecting up and into the pedestrian traffic.
