Keep Your Used Warehouse Shelving Safe and Secure by Routinely Inspecting It
If you operate a facility and have used warehouse shelving systems on the property, it is important to make it a point to regularly inspect the shelving units. No matter how strong or sound your equipment may look at a glance, it can still be susceptible to weaknesses, and it can be crucial to take time to check now rather than dealing with broken equipment and inefficiencies down the line.
The first step to take when inspecting any piece of industrial equipment is to examine the structural integrity at the floor level. Vigorously shake and pull on your shelving systems to ensure they don’t budge. And, if they are bolted into the ground, check to see that the bolts are properly fastened. Then, look to locking mechanisms and adjoining points elsewhere to ensure that everything is appropriately fastened, tightened, and free of structural weaknesses. Finally, check to ensure structural integrity of all weight-bearing components.
