Pallet Rack Setup
Your warehouse should always be as organized as possible, without anything to encumber the driver while they move through the aisles. The isles should be wide enough to fit a forklift or pallet jack so that they can move through the space comfortably. Not only does this help your employees feel comfortable in their positions but it will also help to avoid damage.
Investing In The Right Pallet Rack Accessories
Although pallet rack systems are effective structures in supporting inventory loads, they are not strong enough to withstand the impact of forklifts. However, there is a myriad of accessories that are designed for pallet rack protection such as pallet rack decking, which helps to keep the crossbeams secure and stable as you store your inventory on, and wall ties, row spacers, and column protectors, which keep minor accidents and bumps from creating severe damage. Pallet supports, pallet rack netting, and pallet rack dividers help to keep inventory organized and in its intended place. Although often we don’t want to spend additional money upfront when managing a warehouse but in the long run, you’ll save because you’ve kept your inventory and pallet racks secure. This will make sure that you avoid the high cost of fixing even a single collapsed section of pallet rack.
When operating a warehouse, you want to have tactics in place to ensure that the best practices and producers are always followed. While some warehouse owners and managers decide that installing cameras and monitoring systems works best for the safety of their business, others leave a box for anonymous reports for accidents. Whatever one decides on, employees must know that their work is noticed and their dedication to safety is rewarded.
When these safety tactics are followed, it protects your warehouse from the hassle and cost of fixing damaged pallet racks, which in the end aids in growing your business’s efficiency and bottom line.
