When it comes to safety, the comprehensive range of Colby storage racks, shelves, conveyors and accessories tick all the boxes, thanks to an engineering team backed by structural expert Dr Murray Clarke.

ColbyRACK is engineered and manufactured in Australia and designed to suit Australian and New Zealand industrial applications. That's why they represent value for money.

Colby products are backed by Dematic, a world leader in materials handling system solutions, who engage a large in-house team of structural design engineers headed by Dr Clarke.

"Our team is at the forefront of industry in the development of storage products that are compliant with the most stringent standards," Dr Clarke said.

"Our work is internationally recognised as both innovative and thorough when it comes to steel structures that economically meet the relevant design standards."

And as part of their commitment to Safe Work practices, Dematic has developed proprietary design software known as ColbyRACKMAN that exhaustively analyses and checks all load carrying requirements.

"All ColbyRACK is analysed and certified to meet the standards," he said.

ColbyRACK components have been extensively tested over many years as mandated by the Australian racking standard. The critical tests include beam connection strength and stiffness, stub column strength, base plate stiffness and frame shear stiffness.

These tests facilitate accurate and economical racking design with assured performance in the warehouse.
