Protect your stock, your equipment, and your people
At Colby we really care about your safety. We know what it takes to run a top-notch, safe workplace. We have our own NSCA 5 Star Rating, and are a former "Member of the Year" with the National Safety Council. All Colby products are designed with exactly that duty of care in mind.
Colby's Rack Protection System
Even the most careful forklift driver can have accidental collisions with storage equipment. While worst case scenarios involving rack collapse are rare, impact damage weakens the structure. Colby's patented protection system acts like armour for your racking, and heavy users with high throughputs tell us that this smart product dramatically reduces damage. Colby Protect-a-Rack comes in a range of shapes, sizes and configurations to protect your valuable equipment and the safety of your staff.
Audits & Safety Inspections
Under the Australian Standard AS4084 2012, it is mandatory for all business to have their racking inspected at least once every 12 months, regardless of size, working loads or traffic. Colby can assist your with your regular "health" checks by auditing and inspecting your system. We will make recommendations for any damage repairs, helping you ensure compliance, and giving you peace of mind. Contact us today.

Heavy Duty Front Impact Beam
When one of our customers told us about the damage caused to beams by frontal impact from accidental forklift collisions, we developed a new beam with a rib in the centre to help address the problem. Our patented "UU" beam might not be the prettiest beam on the market, but by increasing frontal impact resistance by over 200% compared to conventional box beams, it does a great job of reducing damage, and increasing safety levels. And because we designed the "UU" beam using 2 mm thick steel instead of 3 mm, the big increase in performance comes with a small increase in price.
Colby Drive-in Rack
We've already presented the merits of our new Drive-in Rack as a functional system, but what many people don't know is that it's probably the best and safest in the world. Special columns, floor channels, cantilever brackets, pallet runners, bracing towers and backstops give the structure impressive rigidity and great value for money. Learn more about Colby Drive-in Rack, and find out why it is the clear market leader.
Storage Systems designed for Seismic Zones
ColbyRACK storage systems can be purpose-built to deal with the forces generated by seismic events. Colby's seismic racking is designed to sway with ground acceleration and behave in a predictable manner during earthquakes and tremors.
