Pallet rack repair Houston Texas
Warehouse shelving and racking make up the skeleton of your warehouse, and leaving a damaged rack un repaired can be just as dangerous to your operations and your employees walking around. Forklift collisions, falling product, or other damage due to human error or equipment malfunction can all threaten the safety and efficiency of your warehouse environment.Pallet rack repair is needed in most warehouses and distribution centers due to pallet rack damage from the impact of forklifts and reach-trucks. The pressure to maintain continuous product flow often overrides replacement of damaged pallet racks. Our pallet rack repair option can cut out the damaged areas of the rack and add a cost-efficient sleeve and new post for a more impact resilient solution. In most instances, there is no need to unload the pallet rack.
Main causes of Pallet rack damage
Here are the most common reasons for pallet rack system failure:
- Damage from fork lift trucks: Accidents or misuse involving lift trucks is the leading cause of pallet rack collapse
- Overload: Loading rack systems with more than the maximum capacity can result in component failure.
- Operational changes: When business demands call for a new operational procedure not supported by the current system’s design.
- Incorrect use/installation: Insecure installation or using incompatible components can compromise the integrity of a system.
- Faulty Equipment: Purchasing systems from a non-reputable seller may put a warehouse at risk.
Visual pallet rack inspection
Damages to your system are not always obvious, and can be easily overlooked. A visual rack inspection should be performed often, annually at minimum, to catch any signs of damage before an accident occurs. Be thorough in your visual inspection and take action by unloading inventory and flagging the systems as out of use. The question is, what do you look for in a rack inspection? As you look over your systems, check for the following:
- Incorrect hardware or faulty attachments
- Bent or dented uprights and beams
- Rust / corrosion
- Overload or incorrectly loaded racks
- Tilted / leaning rack systems
