PRLog - June 19, 2012 - WALNUT CREEK, Calif. -- After 4 years of research and testing the Product Protector is now available for purchase. All Product Protectors are custom manufactured to fit any forklift and meet any operations needs. Not only does the Product Protector virtually eliminate pallet and product damage, but it also increases the margin of safety for the forklift drivers and other employees working around the forklifts. Any company that relies heavily on forklifts can benefit from the Product Protector.
The Single Product Protector
There are two basic models of the Product Protector: the Single and the Single-Double. Both models also come in a Tabbed version, specifically engineered to protect products that overhang the pallet. The Single Product Protector features a patented breakaway system so that it will never get caught in docks or racking systems. Each Product Protector is powder coated allowing for outdoor use and enabling them to withstand the freezing temperatures of cold storage operations.
A forklift operating without the Product Protector always hits the lead board of the pallet with the backs of the forks causing pallet damage. Often this results in a broken lead board as well as damaged product. With the Product Protector, the impact is shifted to the three blocks or stringer, which are a pallet's strongest points. This reduces pallet damage and wood debris, which also promotes a cleaner work environment. By hitting the stringers and blocks, the Product Protector stabilizes the load, allowing forklift drivers to work quickly and safely.
Rich Grau, Vice President of Zenith Logistics, notes that "the Product Protector has greatly reduced the amount of product damage to our bagged and grocery items...This saves time and money..." (http://www.productprotector.com/
