For facilities like yours, the ability to protect your stock, workspace, and employees is often a top concern. With the right equipment, you can help to improve your business practices, making them safer and more efficient while also saving time and money.
Improperly secured goods can lead to accidents, injury, loss of revenue, and even lawsuits against your business. You can minimize the risk by getting rid of inefficient measures and investing in correctly-fitted, high-quality straps and nets for your racks and transport vehicles.
Assess Your Needs
Before taking any measurements, however, determine your current safety solution needs and how those needs may change in the future. What type of measures do you have in place? Are they easy to implement, install, and utilize? Do they perform as well as you’d like? What is the ideal setup for your business? These are questions you might want to consider beforehand.
Find the Best Fit
Top protection doesn’t mean just buying the best products on the market, but making sure they also work seamlessly with the equipment you have in place. To measure racks to fit rack safety solutions, gauge the horizontal distance in inches between the posts on either end with a tape or laser measure.
Make sure to take note of this measurement in inches and be as accurate as possible. A small difference in size can make a big impact in the ideal fit of your rack safety product.
While most manufacturers produce standard beams, the actual measurement of these beams can vary. For example, one manufacturer’s 8-foot beam may be 8’3” (99 inches) while others may be 8’6” (102 inches).
To ensure the best fit, measure your racks and send us your exact dimensions. With a precise measurement, we can provide the best warehouse safety solution for you.
While dimensions of your racks may be slightly larger or smaller than standard strap lengths, you’ll have an easier time finding the right fit.
