For any warehouse looking to make safety a priority, guard rails can be an efficient and effective way to protect the team and the building. At Bluff, it’s a privilege to make high quality safety products that keep your warehouses safe. We hold the highest standard when creating our safety product, so we’re pulling back the curtain and showing the care we put into our products and how that translates to improve warehouse safety.
The Bluff Manufacturing Process
Here’s a look behind the scenes on how our crash guard safety rails are made. First, a 10-gauge smooth plate of precut steel is shaped on a press break, giving the Tuff Guard its form. At the same time, end plates are cut to size by a plasma cutter. When these two items are finished being shaped and cut, they are welded together to ensure a strong hold.
The posts , which are square tubes that are cut on a saw to size. Holes are drilled on a Voortman (for bolt attachments). The base plates of the posts are also cut on a plasma cutter and welded onto the bottom of the posts.
The unit is then sent to be sandblasted to clean off debris and make a smooth surface prior to being painted. There, units are powder coated and sent to the oven to bake. Finally, they are assigned to the shipping department to be tagged and freighted out of the plant.
