Why Pallet Rack Safety Straps Are Important
Pallet Rack Safety Straps keep cartons and pallets from pushing through into the flue space or falling into a work area. Improperly secured goods can lead to accidents, injury, loss of revenue, and even lawsuits against your business. As a matter of fact, the most recent Liberty Mutual Workplace Safety Index cites that falling objects are one of the most common causes of workplace injuries and accidents—and can cost U.S. employers billions of dollars a year!
Furthermore, products that fall into the flue space between racks are in direct violation of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) regulations because they block space that would allow heat from a fire to vent upward. According to the NFPA Code 13, longitudinal flue space must remain clear at all times with a 6″ separation between racks in the down-aisle direction.
While it’s logical to keep this space clear to protect your products — product that is lost or damaged by falling into the flue space between warehouse racking usually cannot be sold — it is also vital to ensure that your warehouse sprinkler system works effectively.
