Pallet racking can be found in many facilities today. Whether the facility is being used for storage, manufacturing, logistics, or any other use pallet racking is usually utilized in some capacity.
This is largely due to the benefits of pallet racking providing organized, vertical storage for both large and small items. The downside to this storage, however, is that items can potentially fall off racking becoming a potential safety hazard to facility staff on the ground level.
Luckily, there is a solution to provide immediate increased safety to these pallet racking systems in the form of RackBack® from WireCrafters!
What is RackBack®?
RackBack® consists of wire mesh panels that bolt directly to the back of existing or new pallet racking uprights. By bolting to the uprights, the wire mesh panels create a sturdy barrier between stored items and the ground below!
The wire mesh consists of 2” x 2” x 10-gauge steel welded wire mesh that is welded into a 1 ¼” x 1 ¼” x 13-gauge steel angle frame. The panels have predrilled mounting holes and are provided with flush mount or offset brackets for pallets that overhang the beams.
The Benefits of RackBack®
Due to its durability, a great benefit of RackBack® is that it can provide constant protection from falling items and spillage no matter the size of the item on the rack.
By keeping items from falling into aisle ways or keeping filled containers from spilling RackBack® can keep your inventory damage free!
This allows for less inventory loss due to damages or spillage providing you increased efficiency in your inventory management process.
Perhaps the most important benefit of RackBack® is its ability to keep your staff safe when they are walking between pallet racking units.
By keeping items from falling, your staff can have peace of mind knowing that they won’t be hit by falling items on their way through the aisle ways. This allows them to safely grab what they need without the potential for harm or injury due to falling inventory.
Quick Ship & Customized Options
The last interesting benefit to RackBack® is that it is available in custom size! This allows you to really tailor the solution to your specific needs without the need for compromising on a size that may not fit your racking perfectly.
However if you need a solution quickly WireCrafters offers stock sizes that are available to ship within 48 hours of an order providing you immediate safety to your new or existing pallet racking!
