Choosing the Most Suitable Option

There is nothing worse than getting the wrong product from the shop and realising only when you get back home. We’ve all been there… haven’t we? But doing the same with pallet racking could cost you a bit more money than getting the wrong type of pasta.

It is very important to look at what you’re using the racking for and then assessing your options.

Different types of racking systems have different purposes. For example, if you were to have inadequate floor space, a mezzanine floor would be the best option, whereas, for someone who needs to stack their storage, this wouldn’t be the right option. Similarly, if your storage is moving regularly, then a dynamic system is a great option, but if you need your pallet racking to hold heavy loads, a cantilever system may be more suitable as it is built to hold heavier loads.

Luckily enough for you – we will guide you to find the most suitable option, this will avoid costs that are easily preventable and can really make a difference to your businesses cash-flow.

Maintenance & Safety

Following ALL safety obligations from The Storage Equipment Manufacturers Association (SEMA) is vital. Not only does it keep your staff safe but it also rids any implications that you could encounter.

Your Health & Safety procedures are also a contributing factor to keeping your racking systems to a high standard. Trip hazards, vehicle routes to ensure there are no collisions with staff or warehouse assets are just a few of the safety precautions you should be considering. In your racking systems case, you should be reaching a high standard of safety on a regular basis. It would be a great idea to undertake regular checks on all assets to locate problems and rectify them as soon as possible. As you may have second-hand racking systems they are more susceptible to faults or failures, as the age of racking systems increase the chance of failure or dangerous incidents are also increased. So, therefore, it is very important to keep a closer eye on those with more years to their name.

When it comes to racking maintenance, there is a lot to think about, so it is important to do your research. Call us now for more information on 0800 085 8117.
