This European Standard gives guidelines for operational aspects relevant to structural safety of storage systems. Such systems operate with heavy mechanical handling equipment working in close proximity to static storage equipment. This European Standard minimizes the risk and consequences of unsafe operation or damage to the structure. Some other forms of storage equipment are only partially covered and further consideration, beyond the scope of this European Standard, can be required. To learn if your installations comply to standards, contact us for more information.
Although the term inspection might sound overwhelming, the importance and the inspection results can make a vast difference between a day-to-day operation in a safe warehouse or a fatal one. A passed or a failed inspection of storage solutions can also become one of the key fundamentals to an effective and reliable supply chain.
Rack inspection is carried out by our own officially certified racking system inspectors via a visual control.
The observation and results are documented within our Computerized Maintenance Management System (SSI SCHAEFER CMMS) tool and indicated by an inspection badge.
All relevant information, observations, identified defects/ needed improvements including respective photos are digitally stored within the SSI SCHAEFER CMMS App.
Finally, all recorded data is summarized right away in an automatically generated PDF report.
The report is reviewed together with you to talk about actions and solutions to address gaps/issues.
Additionally, the digitally stored data can be visualized and analyzed to derive profound conclusions.
We will check on intended use of racking, ensure the quality, size and types of pallet used are meant for its purpose.
The Load overhang and load stability are correctly used.
The usage of materials handling equipment in relation to the design of the racking system are complied.
The beam levels deviation from original design, floor fixing, fixture and use of safety locks are indicated.
Identify beam deflections, damage to the frames, beams, portal beams, pallet rails, arms, floor channel and etc.
Calibrating the straightness of upright if they are found to be damaged
Column guards and other protection accessories, signs of damage on floor and plumbness of rack at block/ rack ends are identified.
Provide an inspection report for auditing and other maintenance purposes.
