How to use heavy-duty racking safely?

1. Prevent overload and heavy pressure

The shelves of different specifications are designed and manufactured according to the load-bearing design. The shelves designed by the shelf technicians have a maximum load. Therefore, the weight of the goods stored on the shelves must be controlled within this maximum load range, and the smaller the maximum load range The safer and more advantageous. As a warehouse manager, it is best to make a load-bearing limit mark on the shelf, and follow the principle of heavier weight on the bottom of the shelf.


2. Prevent impact:

The most vulnerable parts of heavy-duty racks are the aisles and the columns at the corners. In warehouses where forklifts and other handling equipment are used to store and store goods, accidents of forklift deformation often occur. Therefore, anti-collision guardrails should be installed and the forklift should be in operation. , Should be handled with care as much as possible, in order to reduce the collision phenomenon between the handling equipment and the shelf, thereby reducing the damage rate. According to different racks, channel widths and transportation tools, Hercules storage racks are provided with matching anti-collision columns. The installation of anti-collision columns plays a very important role in protecting the rack columns.


3. Prevent ultra-high and ultra-wide

Pay attention to the size of the goods, not super high and super wide. Because the shelf height and width are fixed when the shelf is installed, the size of the pallet and the goods should be slightly less than 100mm of the inner dimension of the shelf; if the stored goods change, they can be re-assembled and disassembled.


4. Prevent heavy footing

Follow the goods storage rules, that is, the principle of placing light objects on the upper shelf and heavy objects on the bottom layer, which means that the shelf is from top to bottom, from light to heavy, so as to maintain the overall balance between the shelf and the storage to achieve more safety and stability. the goal of.


5. Prevent moisture, sun and rain

Although the shelves are all surface-treated, they must be protected from moisture during use. Although the columns and beams of heavy-duty racks are made of metal, and the surface is painted, they may rust long after exposure to moisture and sunlight, and their service life will be greatly reduced. In this regard, the heavy-duty shelf needs to be wiped clean with a rag after being damp to avoid rusting of the shelf, and special attention should be paid to the interface position of the shelf, which is relatively easy to rust.

6. A dedicated pusher truck

Heavy-duty racks and high-rise warehouses are generally equipped with powered push-up trucks, which can improve work efficiency in operations, but it must be noted that the use and operation of push-up trucks should be operated and driven by licensed professionals. In this way, it is possible to avoid the phenomenon that most of the warehouse shelf columns are collided and deformed.


7. Card board

Generally, shelves are equipped with pallets, but when choosing, we must choose qualified pallets instead of non-standard pallets.


8. Personnel safety

When storing goods on the shelf, we must pay attention to avoiding people from entering the bottom of the shelf, and the principle of safety first.


9. Shelf use system

The warehouse manager must formulate a shelf use system, which is very necessary for the use of shelves in the warehouse. Every shelf user must comply with the system for use, so as to ensure the safety and service life of the shelves.


10. Daily cleaning

Generally, the normal service life of storage shelves is more than 15 years. Correct maintenance management and maintenance will extend the service life of the shelves. Therefore, in daily use, you can take care of the equipment by wiping, cleaning, lubricating, and adjusting. In this way, the chance of shelf damage is reduced, which can also reduce the cost of the enterprise.
