Per RMI guidelines for Rack Repair Inspection, thoroughly examine the following areas of the racking system: proper anchoring on the solid base plate, examination of all bracing, horizontals, and diagonals, ensure the welds are intact, no crimping or damage to the braces, inspect that the upright columns are plumb and straight, examine any impact damage to the upright column to ensure there isn’t any crease in the steel, examine beam connections to be sure they are intact, examine beams to be square to the column with no observable impact damage.
