Caribbean For Rack Collapse Prevention’s Warehouse Racking Safety System

Trinidad and Tobago a dual island in the Caribbean is the first installation for UK based and designed Rack Collapse Prevention’s warehouse racking safety system in the Western Hemisphere.

Having read about Rack Collapse Prevention’s unique safety system, Real Marketing Managing Director Richard de Verteuil got in touch saying: “I was impressed by the system’s features, particularly as they stated it could be installed in earthquake prone regions, so I wanted to know more.”

Rack Collapse Prevention’s safety system stops a damaged rack from leaning past its point of no return and removes any potential for progressive rack collapse. With Rack Collapse Prevention’s safety system in place a damaged rack will not buckle or collapse. Capable of being installed anywhere pallet racking is used Rack Collapse Prevention’s safety system is installed in numerous ambient, chilled and frozen warehouses and storage facilities across the UK, Ireland, Europe and now the Caribbean.

Rack Collapse Prevention Company Founder Craig Attwell said: “When Richard contacted us, he had numerous questions about the system and how it would work for his warehouse.

“Having supplied us with detailed plans of the warehouse and the racking to be secured, together with a range of images which gave us a complete picture of the site remotely, we were able to provide a comprehensive survey and quote.

“Once all checks and measures had been taken, we were engaged to complete our first Caribbean installation which was both exciting and enjoyable as everyone was so accommodating and friendly during my short time there.”

The round trip of some 8,732 miles, and a straightforward install covering racking runs of approximately 30m by some 6m in height, was completed by Craig in less than a day.

All pallet racking carries the risk of racking failure, with height amplifying that risk. A damaged racking leg under load is exposed to considerable down pressure and will force the leg to buckle and lose the structure’s ability to sustain its intended load capacity, eventually leading to collapse, and the potential domino effect to any other racking attached to, or in its vicinity.
