Changing pallet racking beams and beam levels

If you are looking to alter your existing beam levels in your pallet racking or change the pallet racking beams there are a few things you need to know. Firstly and most importantly is the pallet racking you are altering safe? If you have any doubts or your pallet racking does not have a load notice attached to each individual run of pallet racking you should consult a competent pallet racking company. They will advise you on if a pallet racking safety inspection is required to check your current pallet racking system is suitable and in a safe working condition with the appropriate load notices.


Secondly and very often missed by the end user of the pallet racking is the height of the first beam level. This is the measurement from the floor to the height of the bottom of the first beam level. This measurement is used in the design and specification of the pallet racking and is critical to the loadings and application that the pallet racking can safely take.


So if you plan to increase the height to the first beam level you must consult a competent pallet racking company who will be able to advise you on how this will affect the pallet racking systems loading capabilities. If you are adding additional beams you need to know they are correct for the system you have and will take the loads you will place on them. This can be calculated using the beams depth width and section detail but again should only be done by an experienced pallet racking designer.


Never use beams without the correct safety locking pins or clips and never ever bolt pallet racking beams into position as they are designed to pop out during an impact situation to minimise risk of a total collapse. Finally be aware that falls from pallet racking or items like beams or products falling from pallet racking can kill make sure these alterations are only carried out with qualified pallet racking installers using the correct equipment and risk and method statements.


If you have any doubts about changing pallet racking beams and beam levels give our pallet racking design team a call here at our offices in Yorkshire.

Pallet racking repairs in Link 51 pallet racking

Pallet racking can easily be damaged usually with an impact from a forklift truck or the when pallets are being loaded or unloaded from the pallet racking.


The most common type of damage is to the uprights or bracing in the pallet racking frames although beams and other components like foot plates can also suffer damage. With Link 51 pallet racking it is easy to repair although these repairs should be assessed and carried out by competent pallet racking inspectors and pallet racking installation and repair engineers.


With Link 51 and some other types of pallet racking it is possible to remove the damaged upright and cut it down in length and replace the damaged section using a kit called a joint or splice kit. However these need to be carefully fitted and should only be used at certain levels so you must seek professional pallet racking design advice before these works are carried out.


The pallet racking bracing can also be replaced but there are different types of Link 51 pallet racking bracing depending on the frame width, height and duty. It is critical that all repair works use suitable pallet racking repair materials so check your installer or repair team are using the correct materials.


If you are suffering heavy damage because you have high pick rates and lots of pallet movements your pallet racking company should advise you on suitable pallet racking protection. These are usually in the form or rack end barriers, column or upright guards or corner guards. With many of these pallet racking guards being less expensive that the repairs they protect against they are a very worthwhile investment. So if you have Link 51 pallet racking or another type of pallet racking call our pallet racking design team here in Yorkshire today and get your pallet racking back to a safe standard.

Link 51 pallet racking frame bracing patterns

When installing or altering pallet racking you must consult a competent person to confirm the design and loading capabilities of the new pallet racking installation. Some minor alterations can reduce the loading capabilities of pallet racking and leave a potentially dangerous pallet racking installation.


The most common mistakes are altering the first beam level if you increase the first beam level or alter the beam pitches this can have a dramatic result on the structural capabilities of your pallet racking. The second most common mistake is taking a bay of pallet racking from a multiple bay run and using it as a standalone bay this can be particularly dangerous where the pallet racking has a single beam level. If in any doubt you must seek advice from an experienced and professional pallet racking design and installation company.


There are many things that need to be checked in pallet racking the pallet racking frame bracing pattern is critical. There are two types of pallet racking bracing in Link 51 pallet racking bracing and they look very similar. The only difference is the material thickness if you have substantial bay loadings you must check that the bracing you are replacing is the correct type. If you are taking over pallet racking or the management of pallet racking look for differing pallet racking frame bracing patterns. It is unusual that you should find horizontal pallet racking bracing anywhere but at the top or bottom of the pallet racking frames. This could potentially be very dangerous and could be a sign that two shorter pallet racking frames have been incorrectly jointed together to form a high pallet racking frame.


Gaps or different bracing are another danger sign these can sometimes be removed to allow services like sprinkler pipes or ducting to pass through the pallet racking frame. These must be rectified urgently. If you have any concerns about your current pallet racking a new pallet racking project or work carried out by a pallet racking repair or installation company call our pallet racking design team and they can advise on the best course of action to get your pallet racking safe. Or call now and book an annual pallet racking safety inspection.
