Factors to consider when used racking is integrated with existing used racking
There are industrial racking systems that are more complex in their designs which make integration a lot more difficult. For example, it is not easy trying to find used racking of the same brand as the conveyor system. There are instances when you can find used conveyor racking but not all its parts are intact. If you are going to opt for used racking, it is suggested to try the more simple designs like pallet racking and decked racking because they can easily be integrated in the existing system. Simple industrial racking designs are also widely available in the market for a more affordable cost. However, if you meet difficulties in finding the right quantities for a specific application, the solution is to adjust the storage system while considering the limitations of floor space.
How to make a choice for an appropriate secondhand pallet racking system
One of the most common types of used racking that is available in the market is pallet racking because it is less complex than other industrial racking systems. However, it is important to consider the appropriate size of secondhand racking if it will be installed on top of the existing racking. Safety is critical in the final height of the pallet racking which means that racks should not be simply added one on top of the other as it may topple down when fully loaded. Assembly must be taken into account using either snaps or bolts. Bolts usually require more time to assemble but they ensure a high degree of stability and durability to comply with safety standards. Snap racks are easier to assemble but its strength may be compromised over time and more likely to fall apart.
Considering safety and reliability in used racking
Safety is a major concern with secondhand racking because both the vendor and the OEM will not provide a safety warranty. Should any unfavorable circumstances occur, nobody will assume responsibility. Additionally, the amount of repair and refurbishment may not be known until the raking arrives meaning that it could be damaged during handling and transport. It is usually critical for the project manager to be experienced in proper equipment installation and evaluation of the industrial racking to ensure its reliability and safety. Hardware-related problems must also be identified beforehand so that installation can be expedited. It is also important to communicate with the vendor so that the parts will be packaged in sequence so that there will be systematic unloading, unpacking and installation. Evaluating and selecting a vendor will require a lot of time and efforts but you are definitely assured of the safety and reliability of the used equipment.
