BumpersLarge transport and shopping trolleys are sometimes difficult to manoeuvre, and tight curves or blocked aisles can therefore present a real challenge to many customers. Collisions can occur frequently in retail stores and warehouses even when smooth-running castors are used, and the resulting damage can often be substantial. This can be quite annoying – and also quite unnecessary, as such damage can be prevented by using practical bumpers from Wanzl.
Guide bumpers offer an extremely effective solution that can be quickly implemented. These bumpers run along the shelves in sales areas and showrooms. They are firmly anchored to the floor and run just a few centimetres above it, thereby ensuring that customers with shopping trolleys don’t bump into the shelves or the merchandise on them. There are many different types of guide bumpers that can be used for this purpose. Another tried-and-tested principle here are robust ram protection hoops that can be placed in areas with high levels of customer traffic.
Effectively protecting sensitive areas
When inattentive customers frequently bump into refrigerator or freezer units, the damage can be costly. Wanzl has therefore developed a special bumper for freezer units that is designed to fit the units perfectly and can even be equipped with ventilation louvres. This ensures that the unit’s operation is not impaired in any way, while its sensitive components are effectively protected against impact.
Wanzl is able to adapt its bumpers in line with the specifications of various freezer unit manufacturers. Collisions are also a problem with security tag systems at store entrances and exits, but special protectors can effectively absorb the impact from shopping trolleys here.
Bumpers for large areas
Just about every warehouse or store has areas in which shopping or transport trolleys are not permitted – for example offices or toilet areas. Practical bollards from Wanzl have proven to be very effective here. They are clearly positioned so closely together that customers and employees immediately realise that trolleys are not permitted in the area beyond them. These protective bollards are available in diameters of 80 mm (3.1 inches) or 100 mm (3.9 inches) and are made entirely of high-quality stainless steel.
