When organising a racking inspection, whether it is from a SEMA approved racking inspector or from your company’s nominated Person Responsible for Racking Safety (PRRS), it is important that you know your pallet racking. At Storage Equipment Experts, we have been providing racking inspection services South East England for years. As a result, we believe that anybody who works in the warehousing industry should be well versed in racking inspection safety and racking knowledge. This is why we provide racking inspection training delivered by a SEMA approved racking inspector. It is also why we have created this: a pallet racking identifier.
This identifier can be used for your own personal use, for when you want to explain racking damage to an expert in detail, or just for you to expand your knowledge of racking. It is a quick and easy way to learn the difference between different types of pallet racking and different pallet racking systems.
Knowing your different kinds of pallet racking is important because it avoids misuse. We at Storage Equipment Experts believe very strongly that pallet racking should never be used beyond its limits. One of the most common mistakes, and most tragic mistakes, businesses make is overestimating the strength of their racking. It is easy to believe that, because you have been using the racking for years, that you know best how to use it. Of course, this is a dangerous trap to fall into. After all, “if your racking provider was confident that your racking could take more weight, then they would have said this when selling it to you. No racking designer or provider is going to undersell their product.”
From our many years working in the South East of England, we at Storage Equipment Experts have been proud to deliver a high quality racking inspection service. We believe in safety and we hope that this pallet racking identifier will help you to be safe as well. Still, if you have any doubts about your racking, or are unsure in any way, contact Storage Equipment Experts for a specialist’s opinion from the best SEMA approved racking inspector in South East England.
