Rack Safety Products Help New Lippert Components Plant Operate Quickly
When any new business wants to get up and running there are important things to consider, like finding a building and employees to fill it. But when it comes to production facilities, there’s something very important that should never be left off that list: pallet rack safety.
Lippert Components was opening a brand new facility in Indiana and needed to come online quickly, but also needed to ensure that everything in their plant would meet safety standards first — and their warehouse racking was one area that needed to be addressed.
The facility had walking aisles right next to their storage racking, making the possibility of load push-through or items falling over into the walkway a definite reality. They’d tried a few other pallet rack safety barrier/guarding products at other locations before but ran into the same challenge each time: installation was a time-consuming hassle that would prevent the plant from getting operations started on time.
Storage Solutions, an authorized dealer for material and safety equipment, understood that this new plant did not have the luxury of waiting four to six weeks for materials to be manufactured for them. Nor would they have been able to find an installation crew to fit their timeline and budget. Of course, they weren’t willing to compromise on safety, but they couldn’t compromise on time, either.
Storage Solutions had to find a pallet rack safety system they could buy immediately and install themselves. That’s where we stepped in.
They couldn’t have any downtime between building the new facility and being able to open and operate quickly. They couldn’t wait weeks for products to arrive or hire an installation crew. That’s why Adrian’s fit. Being able to offer them Rack Safety Nets immediately and have them easily install it themselves was vital. — Tim Fonderoli, Storage Solutions
When the team at Storage Solutions encounters challenges like this, being able to come up with a quick, specific solution that works for the client is incredibly important — especially when it has anything to do with safety.
Though there are many companies that create effective rack safety products, they must often specially-made or manufactured to exact specifications. For the end-users, this means they take longer to receive and often are more intricate and time-consuming to install. Adrian’s, on the other hand, makes products that come in several standard beam sizes so they are stocked and shipped out once an order is received.
There are a lot of things out there that work well, but they don’t have the quickness. This situation called for a “that day” solution and Adrian’s products were the best for it because they were able to get their order in and do their own installation — it was so much simpler and quicker. — Tim F., Storage Solutions
And of course Tim’s instincts were correct — the Adrian’s safety solution he suggested promptly solved the problem, leaving the end-user very pleased.
I highly recommend these products. They were very easy to install. — Mike Kemper, Lippert Components
