Wilgard® XT Steel Guard Rail System

Wilgard® XT protective guard rail systems are painted safety yellow and provide a highly visible physical barrier that guards expensive equipment, shields key work areas, and helps define traffic patterns in your plant or facility.

Customers report that our Wilgard guard rail is the best available and Wildeck has the data to back that up. Tests confirm that properly installed Wilgard guard rail will absorb severe impacts from forklifts or other equipment...up to a 13,000 lb. load impact traveling at 4 mph, without failure.

Wilgard Guard Rail systems can be ordered in single, double or triple rail design. Column centers are identical for Standard and Lift-Out Guard Rails. All guard rail components include necessary hardware and anchors.

Wilgard® Guard Rail discourages careless behavior around equipment and it looks very professional. I’m glad we installed it at the same time as our mezzanine platform.
