If you own use a used pallet rack to organize an inventory for your business, it is paramount to routinely inspect the system to ensure structural integrity. It is advised to inspect your system on a given day of the month each month, if not more frequently to ensure that your equipment is capable of consistently bearing the weight loads you need them to handle.
When inspecting your pallet rack, it is important to check every part of it, from the floor all the way to the top. Gently shake the railings and load-bearing surfaces to ensure that they can flex but don’t allow for too much give. And, more importantly, check that all screws, nuts, and bolts are appropriately fastened, and tighten up all loose pieces that you notice. As they say, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
