Rack protection: saving your business

Supplier: Meca Racking Solutions
19 February, 2014

Meca Racking Solutions sees rack protection as a truly value adding addition to your racking structure, reducing the impact and down time to your business.

These occurrences typically pose companies with the dilemma of whether to;

A) continually fix and/or replace rack uprights,
B) unload damaged racking or
C) ignore the problem and continue business as usual. Unfortunately none of these options are really ideal.

Option A can be expensive, time consuming and disruptive to warehouse operations. Option B decreases valuable storage room; space that you pay good money for. Option C, well in these days of strict OH&S policies option C is not an option.

Fortunately there is a simple solution; Meca rack protection:

The vast majority of pallet racking upright damage occurs within the first 0 to 600mm. Time and time again we see uprights that are in impeccable shape apart from the very bottom section. This is where rack protection can be your friend and ally.

Due to the design of rack protection units used by Meca, impacts that would have resulted in the pallet rack frame being rendered unusable are often absorbed and deflected, resulting in no damage to either the protection or the racking.

In instances of more serious contact, the design of the rack protection ensures that the protector will act as a sacrificial barrier. The cost of a replacement protector is a fraction of the cost of a repair or new frame not to mention far less time consuming and disruptive.
