K3 Safety & Protection Products

Having a warehouse of our own, allows DAK to research, explore, and fully recognize that safety is the most important ingredient of a cost effective, productive warehouse.  Our K3 safety products and solutions are designed and offered with the confidence that our products will safeguard your employees, facility, and inventory.

DAK’s K3 premium line of warehouse safety and protection equipment includes: Row Guards | Column Guards | Pallet Stops | Large Equipment Guarding | And More

K3 In-Rack Sprinkler Guards

Fire suppression systems are mandated for safety virtually everywhere in North America and beyond.  When in-rack sprinkler systems are specified, water is released closer to the inventory and in turn minimizes inventory loss and equipment damage.  To ensure your in-rack sprinkler system remains intact and protected from daily impacts of forklift traffic and pallet damage, use DAK’s K3 heavy duty in-rack sprinkler head guards.

DAK’s U.S patent pending K3 In-rack Sprinkler Guards attach directly to the beams instead of the sprinkler system piping, avoiding sprinkler system damage.  The K3 heavy duty design protects from impacts of up to 5000lbs protecting equipment and inventory from unnecessary water damage and compromise.

We designed these U.S patent pending sprinkler guards with 25 years of warehouse safety & fire suppression experience under our belt, and we are proud to say there is no other product on the market like them!
