Example: Strategic Warehousing
As warehouse rack professionals, we’ve seen plenty of pallet rack configurations and know the difference between sturdy and unsafe racking. In this real-life example one of our pallet rack experts noted serious damage to a client’s racking and saved them from major legal/permitting trouble in the future:
“My customer requested a thorough damage inspection of their pallet racking components in August of 2019. I created a spreadsheet using RMI’s Rack Inspection Guideline Factors to be examined and noted serious damage with recommendations.
To remedy the damaged racking, we determined to replace 48 uprights and install one-hundred-thirty-one 12” column protectors.”
Rack inspections prevent further damage by catching issues before they’re too serious. In this example, the damaged product was easily replaced and column protectors installed to prevent damage from reoccurring in the future.
