The answer will really be dependent on each site, however if you have a single entry run of one or more bays of racking this should only be loaded from one side and therefore will require anti collapse mesh to protect from items falling from pallets. There are of course exceptions to this the most common and obvious is if the rack backs on to a wall that is the full height of the rack. If in any doubt a warehouse pallet racking inspection by an independent company should be commissioned.
It is sometimes also the case that anti collapse mesh is installed to the rear of pallet racking even when it does back against a wall to protect windows or partitioning when racks are placed against offices or mezzanine floors with offices.
Here at 2h Storage we can provide an independent inspector as we are not tied to any one supplier. We can also provide you with the supply and installation of any materials for repairs and anti-collapse mesh.
Pallet racking repairs and spares – Link 51 and Link 68
Link changed their pallet racking system many years ago from the old Link 68 to the newer Link 51. Link 51 remains popular and the company offer good support for what is undoubtedly a good quality and versatile product.
However the original product can still be found in some warehouse racks, Link can provide beams to span from the old to the new system. So it is possible to add the new Link 51 frames into an old system when damage has occurred. The old Link 68 frames were fully welded in a similar fashion to RediRack warehouse pallet racking system.
If you would like any advice on repairs or compatible systems just give one of the team here at 2h Storage a call. We can help with spares, repairs and inspections and pride ourselves on saving you the customer money!

Carpet rolls and deep storage warehouse racking designs from 2h Storage Solutions.
Deep storage racks for storing items like carpets, furniture, rolls of product and sheets are simple to design. With that said there are large cost savings in materials and labour between designs using different manufactures warehouse racking materials and designs.
For instance some manufactures warehouse racking designs will require double or triple deep frames to store certain lengths and weights of product. A different manufacture will use only a single upright between frames, this can dramatically reduce the cost of both labour and materials.
So the key to getting the best value solution is to get the best design using the most suitable product. It is not simply a matter of getting three quotes because all three warehouse pallet racking suppliers may not choose the most cost effective design.
The key is good value engineering through design techniques and product knowledge, here at 2h Storage we have over 30yrs of experience in expert design for many well know companies. So before you commit to a quotation speak to the experts it could save you time and money.
When buying used pallet racking just like new you get what you pay for so don’t be tempted to buy that bargain racking. Make sure you get the correct racking for your pallet weight loads and for more complex installations seek a professional design.
