Rack Inspection

Rack Inspection

 

Warehouse owners, managers and equipment operators rely on pallet racks to secure heavy loads. Seeing use in both commercial and industrial applications, racking systems organize facilities for the safe navigation of forklifts and other machinery. Pallet racks are heavy-duty, but it is crucial to monitor the condition of these multi-level units to protect employees and products from accidents.

US Industrial Corp performs structural audits and inspections to ensure your warehouse equipment is in working order. Our team designs custom storage systems and can recommend appropriate actions to correct pallet damage as soon as possible. Whether we spot overloaded racks or signs of corrosion, our professionals provide solutions that are specific to your facility.

Why Racking Inspections?

Pallet racks are vital to your picking and shipping operations. Employees interact with these structures daily to relocate orders and stack loads for extended periods of time. You should have a professional visit your site routinely to assess structures for wear and tear, such as dents in beams or leaning uprights.

 

Staying proactive with pallet rack maintenance is a cost-effective way to manage your inventory and investments. The sooner you detect an imperfection on a pallet rack, the easier it is to avoid a collapse.

What Do We Look for During Pallet Racking Audits?

One of our experts will walk you through our inspection process as we analyze your facility using an auditing checklist. The placement of your pallet racking is just as important as the condition of system parts. The United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) does not have racking-specific guidelines, but your installations must abide by their general requirements for storage.

We focus our attention on the following areas during audits:

  • Proximity of storage to fire sprinklers
  • Interference with docking doors
  • Location of HVAC vents (if applicable)
  • Placement of racking and lighting fixtures
  • Clearance from ceiling
