A customer had a problem with delivery trucks running into dock railing when backing up. Once pre-fabricated railing got hit, rail would be damaged from the beginning of dock all the way up to dock door
They installed Ideal Shield Industrial Pipe & Plastic Handrail, all 9 foot sections of modular handrail. Now if the first nine foot section of handrail is damaged rather than the entire length of the truck dock. Now the replacement cost is minimal and much easier to fix. The handrail is maintenance free and never needs to be painted with aluminum fittings that will not rust.
The customer now has a maintenance free system that is not as expensive to replace and looks great for years.
