Routinely Inspecting Your Used Pallet Racking Systems
It is especially important with a used pallet racking system to regularly inspect the system to ensure that it is structurally sound, stable, and ready to bear the load of whatever you throw its way. It can be easy to get into a routine of simply using the equipment without taking the time to consider its well-being, but it is a much better idea to take the time to perform an inspection on a regular basis; doing such can save you from headaches both now and down the line.
Start out your inspection by gently grabbing onto the support beams and shaking them to see if they budge at all; they shouldn’t. Also, look to ensure that they are firmly secured to the floor and that no substance may cause them to slip or slide about. Finally, inspect the nuts, bolts, and locking mechanisms to see that they are appropriately tightened and fastened.
