The Importance of Routinely Inspecting a Used Lumber Rack
Do you have a used lumber rack in a warehouse, showroom, or storage facility? If so, it is crucial to remember to regularly inspect the equipment to ensure its structural integrity and that it is capable of bearing the weight of the lumber you wish to store. Though it can be easy to get caught up in day-to-day operations and think that there is no time to perform any kind of inspection, making time to do so can prevent you from facing disaster in the future.
When inspecting your lumber rack – or any other piece of industrial equipment in your facility – begin by grabbing onto support beams and shaking them, gently at first and then more vigorously, to see if they budge; they shouldn’t. Then, make sure that the supports are firmly secured into the floor and are not vulnerable to slippage or moving of any sort. Finally, check the nuts and bolts – or other locking mechanisms – to see to it that they are all firmly fastened.
