Notes on Selective racking installation

The installation process of Selective racking should be carried out by an experienced technical team to ensure a quick and safe installation.

Accurately measure the positions for installation, ensuring compliance with the specified fire safety distances for the entire Selective racking system.

Guidelines for safe operation of selective racking

How to safely operation Selective racking

  •  Step 1: Goods should be placed directly on pallets for storage.
  •  Step 2: Use a forklift to move pallets to the desired storage location on the Selective racking. The aisles between Selective racking sets are designed to be spacious, allowing for easy forklift access to each storage location.
  •  Step 3: When it's time to retrieve items, the forklift can access the pallets for item selection.

Considerations for operating Selective racking

Causes of Selective racking damage

  •  Forklift collisions with the racking system: This is the most common cause of damage to selective racking during operation.
  •  Overloading with goods: Storing goods beyond the permissible weight limit can lead to the risk of the racking system collapsing, which is extremely hazardous.
  •  Lack of care during loading and unloading: Carelessness during the loading and unloading process can result in goods falling, collisions that dent or deform the racking system, affecting the quality of the goods, and posing a danger to users.
  •  Use of Low-quality pallets or incorrect pallet specifications: Using subpar pallets or pallets that do not meet specifications can lead to uneven force distribution on the beam levels, causing deformation of the racking system.
  •  Subsidence of the floor: Inadequate site assessment and environmental factors, such as geological conditions, can lead to floor subsidence, causing damage to the racking system.

Some considerations during the use of Selective racking

  •  Use the appropriate forklift type for the aisles of the racking system.
  •  Forklift operators responsible for loading and unloading should have experience and be cautious during operations, adhering to safety regulations while operating forklifts.
  •  Adhere to the load capacity chart provided by the racking system supplier.

  •  Use pallets that comply with the design specifications and load orientation provided by the supplier. 
  •  Goods must be neatly stacked on pallets to prevent them from falling during operation, which can be dangerous. Place pallets with goods snugly and in the correct position on the rack level.

Operating and loading goods onto the Selective racking system

An important note to remember when operating selective racking, often overlooked by many businesses, is to keep the aisles clear and unobstructed. Avoid clustering goods near the forklift aisles to ensure easy movement of vehicles, quick loading and unloading, and minimize collisions.
