AS4084 : 2012

Macrack Australia is fully compliant with the Australian Standard AS4084 : 2012 Steel Storage Racking. ‘This standard sets out minimum requirements for the design, fabrication and erection tolerances, test methods, operation and maintenance of steel storage racking in the limit states method’.

‘Racking should be set up, operated and maintained according to the instructions of the racking manufacturer and be in accordance with AS 4084:2012 – Steel storage racking. It should be designed specifically for the size, shape and weight of the products being stored. Racking should also be compatible with the pallets and the material handling equipment used in the workplace. For example, aisle width should be matched to the turning circle of the forklift used for picking and replenishment. Any modifications should be checked by the original supplier/manufacturer/designer. If in doubt, seek advice from the racking manufacturer or installer, or a competent person with experience in racking design and construction’ – work safe Vic.
