A pallet racking system enables you to do your business in a warehouse setting. Without it, your business is down with no revenue coming in. The racking system is a substantial investment made on behalf of your company. It is a big decision to either repair or replace it. Here are some answers to questions that we regularly receive in regards to a warehouse pallet racking system:
Answer: The cost of repairing is usually much less than replacing and can be done with minimal disruption to daily operations.
Answer: Yes, and in most cases even more so, as the repaired section is using heavier structural materials instead of the roll formed materials.
Answer: Yes, all our repairs are welded. However, if you have a facility where welding is not allowed, we can do all welding in our shop and provide you a bolt on solution.
Answer: We try to make our repairs blend in. We are proud of our repairs, but we do not make them stand out as to call attention to them.
Answer: Of course, if you have severe damage, the racks should be emptied and not used until they have been repaired or replaced. Most damaged columns although they should be repaired in a timely manner, they can be repaired without emptying the rack.
Answer: Yes, it is an option on the most common rack styles. Although, if your first beam level is 3ft or higher and you have no plans for lower beam levels, we may suggest a “tubing” repair that has no adjustment.
Answer: Yes, we do offer inspections and provide a full detailed report. Usually, these are done for no charge if we do the repairs.
Answer: Although the most common types are teardrop, republic/keystone and round punched. We offer custom repair solutions to all types of racks.
Answer: We have repaired many drive-in systems.
Answer: Yes, we do repair and maintain pushback systems.
Answer: If the fire suppression system was not damaged when the rack was, then it will not need to be removed.
Answer: Each situation is a little different. Sometimes it is additional training that may be needed; other times it is with engineered solutions. We custom build heavy-duty protection at reasonable costs.
