Cost of Wire Guidance
Wire guidance is a significant investment in your warehouse operations. While upfront costs for the guide wire, forklift electronics, line driver, and installation can add up, the avoided cost of future damage and rack replacement could save you thousands in the long run.
Guide wire costs an estimated $5 per foot or $15 per meter. Additional costs to consider include installation, slurry removal, return trips if installed during a multi-phase project, and clean-up.
The estimated cost for rail guidance is $35 per linear foot for the material and installation. Remember, an aisle has two sides that will both require guide rail protection. Additional costs for guide rail installation include removal of existing rails, disposal, and reconfiguration/redesign.
