Trusted and Efficient Racking Inspection in New Addington

Cost effective, reliable and accurate racking inspections across New Addington

Working across Kent and New Addington, we offer planned regular pallet racking inspection services to commercial companies and industrial clients throughout the South East. Large scale storage systems can potentially increase safety concerns and risks if not professionally installed and then maintained, meaning pallet racking inspections should be an essential part of your New Addington warehouse health and safety policy. 

It is entirely possible for pallet racking to suffer damage or faults during installation or even suffer damage from a forklift collision and as you are surely aware, it is your responsibility to make sure that all your racking is still secure and safe afterwards.

As you would expect from one of New Addington and Kent's leading pallet racking companies, we always meet and exceed all SEMA inspection standards in our full checks. We will ensure that all your industrial pallet racking is still fit for purpose. Alongside that, we will also advise on replacements or reparations where required too.

Periodic racking inspections and checks are essential for you to comply with the PUWER 1998 regulations (Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations). They should not be limited to six month periods if a collision with a forklift or other vehicle occurs or if damage is sustained from falling stock or equipment.

So arrange for one of our dedicated and experienced team to visit your New Addington premises and carry out a comprehensive pallet racking inspection by calling us today on 01634 296927. 

As one of Kent and New Addington's leading suppliers and installers of both used and new pallet racking equipment, we are also able to provide any racking replacements quickly and for very competitive and affordable prices too; ensuring that your disruption and downtime is kept to an absolute minimum.  

Truly Independent Racking Inspections

Due to the busy nature of any New Addington or Kent warehouse or industrial environment, forklifts and pump trucks can unintentionally cause damage to pallet racking systems at any time. While most knocks and bangs may seem minor, they can sometimes have an additional accumulative effect on the structural integrity of the pallet racking system, especially if the racking has become overloaded. In order to maintain the safety of your staff and avoid potential damage to stock, pallet racking needs to be regularly inspected and monitored by a technically competent person.   

A safety inspection of your adjustable pallet racking is required under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974

Regular racking inspection also fulfils your obligations under the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, alongside the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998. 

Following the undertaking of your pallet racking inspection, you will be given an extensive and detailed report.

This racking inspection document, provided to all New Addington clients, can be used as an audit to check the condition of equipment for health and safety purposes.  

By following the report's suggestions, you will be able to keep your pallet racking to a legally acceptable standard. For some companies, an annual racking inspection report given by a suitably qualified inspector will be required in order to comply with comprehensive insurance demands. 

Every single one of our racking inspections is undertaken in accordance with the Storage Equipment Manufacturers Association (SEMA) Code of Practice. These can be carried out by an external racking inspector who is able to give an independent assessment of the racking. If repairs are still needed, Acorn Storage are able to supply new or used replacement items and offer a full repair service from our team of SEIRS registered installers.  

We offer one off racking inspections or regular planned inspections as required. For costs and a visit from one of our inspectors to your New Addington premises, please contact us.
