With continued use of material and mechanical handling equipment in your warehouse, damage to your pallet racking is highly inevitable. Ignoring it won't make it go away so we recommend carrying out a racking damage survey to ensure that your pallet racking still meets current HSE Regulations and the SEMA Codes and Guidelines.
