PROTECT coatings - retrofittable

Best protection for your goods

If the transported goods are to be protected, PROTECT ForkCoatings present an optimum solution. VETTER also has a large range of options that can be fitted to existing forks at a later date.

Product benefits

Special care is needed when transporting fragile goods, especially when doing so without a transport carrier.
PROTECT coatings protect delicate surfaces, reduce vibrations and prevent damage to the goods significantly.

One of the main advantages of PROTECT coatings lies in the anti-slip properties in both dry and wet conditions. This guarantees safe transport even outdoors. At the same time it increases the work safety, as there is no longer a risk of the load slipping off the forks.


Noises are par for the course when transporting goods, for example when transporting metal products. However, this poses a problem when working around the clock or in residential areas. PROTECT coatings alleviate this problem because they significantly reduce the vibrations and thus the noise level.


All coating materials used have to fulfil the highest requirements on abrasion and cut resistance, as this is the only way to guarantee a long service life.


The range of different versions is as diverse as your different applications:The fork shank and the fork blade can be retrofitted in the blink of an eye. We would be happy to advise you!
