Racking Inspection, Damage Replacement & Repairs

Racking inspection is a critical process carried out to ensure the safety, integrity, and compliance of industrial racking systems, such as pallet racking, shelving, and other storage structures. Regular inspections help identify potential issues, damage, or wear and tear, reducing the risk of accidents, structural failures, and product damage. Our team of trained professionals follow established guidelines and standards that comply with local regulations and safety standards related to racking systems to promote a safe working environment and avoid potential legal liabilities. We conduct thorough assessment of the damage that involves inspecting the racking system visually to identify the extent of the damage and its impact on the structural integrity.

Inspections focus on identifying various potential problems, including but not limited to:

  • Damage to upright frames, beams, bracing, or connectors.
  • Defective or missing safety components, such as beam locks or safety pins.
  • Signs of overloading or incorrect use of the racking system.
  • Stability issues, such as uneven loading or inadequate floor conditions.
  • Proper anchoring and connection to the building floor.
  • Compliance with relevant safety standards and regulations.

 Risk Assessment: The inspection findings are used to assess the level of risk associated with the racking system. Critical issues may require immediate corrective action like replacement or repair.

Racking Repairs: Racking repairs are essential to maintain the safety, functionality, and integrity of industrial racking systems. Over time, racking may experience damage due to various factors such as impacts from forklifts, overloading, wear and tear, or even seismic events. Repairing/Replacing damaged racking promptly is crucial to prevent accidents, protect stored items, and ensure the longevity of the storage system. We are familiar with all types of Racking systems; our trained and experienced crews perform repairs/replacements in accordance with manufacturer guidelines and all safety standards in place to ensure the structural integrity of the storage system.

Preventative Measures: After completing the repairs, we can also help you with implementing preventative measures to reduce the risk of similar damage in the future.
