Prevent Injury and Damage: Use the Right Products

Waste barrels with hazard warning symbolsThe only thing more important than your equipment safety is the safety of your employees. You need to keep the right safety products for all possible circumstances on hand to keep equipment and employees safe.

At AbsorbentsOnline, we carry everything you need to protect your staff members and the equipment they use every day. Here are a few items you might consider, based on your workplace and activities:

Column Protectors

In many facilities, columns are painted the same color as the walls, making them difficult to see — particularly when operating vehicles like forklifts, tow motor lifts, or carts. A collision with a column can cause damage to your facility and your equipment — not to mention your employees!

Our Column Protectors are available in a number of bright colors for high visibility. They’re made of 100% high-density polyethylene and can absorb an impact up to 8,500 pounds traveling at up to 7 miles per hour. They come in five different sizes and can fit both round and square supports. They’re easy to install and are even UV-protected so their highly visible colors won’t fade during extended outdoor use.

Corner Protectors

Protect corners in high-traffic areas in your facility with corner protectors. Overhead door frames and the corners around loading docks can take a lot of damage from trucks backing in and unloading. Corner protectors will not just protect your building from damage but will also protect vehicles! You can install them on H-frame racking and use them horizontally as rack guards or on loading docks.

Made of high-density polyethylene in bright, visible yellow, these protectors are rust-resistant, stress-resistant, and even UV-protected for outdoor use. They come in two different sizes to best suit your particular applications and are easy to install with bolts provided with your purchase.

Wall Protectors

Repairing damage to drywall, concrete, or block walls can be expensive. Prevent this damage with Wall Protectors. These are especially useful in drum storage areas or on loading docks where wall damage can occur.

You can install wall protectors vertically or horizontally at any height based on your facility needs. They’re made of bright-yellow high-density polyethylene and their UV inhibitors make them suitable for use both indoors and out. They are rust-resistant, stress-resistant, and designed to resist cracking and chipping.

Forklift Mats

Don’t let fluids from your forklifts damage your floors or present employee slip hazards. Forklift Mats can protect from both of these situations. These mats are perfect for parking forklifts overnight or for protecting floors while performing maintenance or recharging.

Forklifts driving over these super-absorbent polypropylene mats won’t damage them. Their non-penetrable, non-skid material keeps the mats in place and prevents fluids absorbed into the top side of the mats from reaching the floors below.

Rag Rug Industrial Absorbent Floor Mats

It’s especially important to protect your floors in high-traffic areas and where small spills and leaks happen frequently. Rag Rug Industrial Absorbent Floor Mats are perfect for these applications. They can absorb oil, coolants, solvents, and water and are made from 100% recycled materials so you can save money and stay green. The dark mat color hides grime and allows you to use the mats for longer periods of time before replacing them.

Abzorb Oil Mats

When absorbent mats just don’t cut it, try Abzorb Oil Mats. When you can’t fully absorb a spill or leak, the non-penetrable vinyl backing will stop any leftover liquids from reaching — and potentially damaging — the floor.

These polypropylene mats are universally absorbent, and you can use them to absorb oil, coolants, solvents, and water. The mats are non-flammable and come in dark grey to disguise stains. They have skid-resistant backing and are designed to lay flat without curling or buckling. They’re so durable that we guarantee their use for three years against cracking, tearing, or leaking!

Day-to-day industrial work can damage your facility, equipment, and employees if you aren’t careful. Protecting all of these is a top priority — and the experts at AbsorbentsOnline have the materials you need.
