How To Calculate The Weight Limit of Your Racks

Do you know how much weight your pallet racking can take? If you need to find out the weight limits of your pallet racking, the most important thing to remember is that only the manufacturer can provide weight loading signs for their products. Any weight loading signs provided by a third party will be inaccurate and non-compliant to Australian Standards for steel storage racking.

Pallet Racking Safety Audits

When pallet racking becomes damaged it can affect the weight loading capacity of the racks. This means that the weight-loading signage on your damaged racks may no longer be accurate, posing a health and safety risk to anyone working with or around the pallet racking system.

To ensure that the weight loading of your pallet racks has not been altered from damage to the racks, it’s important to conduct regular pallet racking safety audits. In fact, according to Australian Standards for steel storage racking, pallet racking should be inspected annually by a competent person in order to remain compliant. Regular safety audits will ensure that any damage to the racks that may affect its weight loading capacity is identified and addressed quickly.
