Teardrop Racking Systems: What To Remember

Teardrop racking systems are often used because of their versatility. Once someone is shown how to insert and remove shelves, the racking system can be changed to suit different items and different amounts of materials. However, if you're outfitting an industrial facility with this kind of racking system for the first time, it's best to remember these details.

Permits are Necessary

An easily forgettable part of this entire process is ensuring that your local city or township understands what you're doing inside your facility and approves it. Pallet rack systems, like others in your building, need to be approved with a permit. The permits office will tell you what documentation they need so that they can allow your racking system to be put up. You don't have to seek this approval; bear in mind that if you don't, you may ultimately need to find money in your budget for expensive fines.

Weight Limits Matter

Once you or employees set up teardrop racks, it's easy to think they're sturdy and can handle anything. However, some racks will crack and fall right off the supporting structure if products are too heavy. Everyone in your facility should understand what the weight limits are so they're mindful of what they're putting on each rack.

Forklifts Need to Get Around

In any building, those erecting the racking systems run the risk of forgetting there needs to be adequate travel and walk space for forklifts, other equipment and people. Ensuring racks are evenly spaced should be done well before products are placed on the racks.

Proper Training is Vital

Teardrop structures are easy to operate. However, if care isn't taken to make certain each shelf is inserted correctly into the appropriate holes, the shelf isn't reliable. Failing to connect a shelf at one point, for whatever reason, can mean that the piece could collapse under the weight of your products. Ensure everyone is trained not only to work the racking system, but to double check that they've always connected each rack properly.

Bottom Racks Need Protection

Various equipment can bump into lower shelves, causing damage of various kinds. To protect them and prevent having to replace them all the time, try post and shelf protectors which will serve as a barrier between the shelves and the forklifts that deposit items.

Your attention to these teardrop racking system issues will improve the functionality and durability of the shelving overall. Talk with racking system vendors about more teardrop-specific advice.
