Column Sentry® column protectors cushion those big bumps, preventing expensive column damage.

Column Sentry® is:

  • Incredibly Tough
  • Highly Visible
  • Easily Installed
  • Surprisingly Cost-effective
  • Extremely versatile


Column Sentry® is the original, patented column protector, saving interior building columns by surrounding them with a cushion of air. This protector is very easy to install, without using any tools, and is extremely effective at column damage prevention. It is available in a number of sizes to fit most every column. This column protector is highly visible in its standard safety yellow color, preventing forklift collisions. When hit, Column Sentry flexes, protecting the column, the forklift, and the forklift operator. The protector is molded of low-density polyethylene, making it tough while keeping it maintenance free.

Column Sentry's patented air-chamber makes it unique: Sentry's air-vent system provides the best protection available for a column protection device. This unique system allows air to escape during impact, allowing the column protector to absorb impact without splitting the sides. 



Now proven to be the best column damage prevention available: In a recent test conducted by a recognized international testing company, Column Sentry® proved to be significantly more resistant to impact than the leading imitation protectors.  Testing was done on similar sized products and found that the genuine Column Sentry® protector was 83% more effective in resisting impact than the imitation column protector.

Column Sentry FEColumn Sentry® FE is a special version of the Column Sentry product outfitted with a cutout designed to allow and protect items mounted on the column. This cutout is 10" (25cm) wide by 8" (20cm) deep, resulting in a height of 34" at the cutout. FE stands for Fire Extinguisher, and this was the original purpose for this product.

Customers needed to mount a fire extinguisher on the column, but because of OSHA regulations, could not mount this above the protector. The cutout solution worked so well, it soon became popular where any types of item, such as electrical boxes or outlets, were mounted to the face of the column.

The Column Sentry® FE product is available in both the 8"x8" and the 12"x12" size. The product is installed in the same manner as the standard Column Sentry® products. The cutout within the low-density polyethylene column padding does not affect the location or the function of the hook & loop straps.

Column Sentry FE comes in yellow or red color. Purchasing this product in red does not affect the price, but may delay shipment.

Column Sentry Product Sizes

All Column Sentry protection products are 42"/107cm tall and are made of linear low-density polyethylene at a (nominal) 0.25" wall thickness.  Each has a set of nylon straps attached to wrap around and hold the two sides together.

The size of the column will dictate the size of the Column Sentry. Carefully measure the length and width of the column area and find a corresponding size below. If covering an "I-beam" or "H-shape" column, make sure that the correct "web" and "flange" measurements before ordering the protection product. Also make sure there is nothing mounted on the column to prevent installation of the "H" sized Column Sentry. Keep in mind that a square will also fit over the "H" shape.  For Fire Extinguishers see the Column Sentry FE.
