Weland Pallet Rack is designed with a focus on future requirements for rational material handling. The pallet rack's design promotes a well thoughtout function with a high level of safety. Both end panel posts and support beams are made of closed profiles for the maximum bearing strength. All constituent components are hot-dip galvanised. The Weland Pallet Rack is dimensioned and tested according to SS-EN 15512:2009.

Division: The support beams can be placed at height intervals of 50 mm.
The harmonisation within the EU and the development of common standards has consequences for both manufacturers and users of warehouse management equipment. The official designation for pallet racks is Steel Static Storage Systems.
The new regulations are accompanied by extensive requirements for all parties concerned. Equipment design, assembly and use are subject in future to a much greater degree of regulation than before.
Apart from a theoretical calculation of the capacity of the pallet rack, the components must also be subjected to physical testing. Risk classes with different tolerance requirements have been introduced. The storage equipment has to have clear specifications and a detailed user manual has to be enclosed. Safety issues are carefully regulated. User companies have to have a person responsible for storage equipment and assembly must be carried out by qualified persons. The standards contain provisions for use and risk analyses during inspections and assessment of damage.
The new European standards will increase the level of safety and promote European trade on equal terms. At Weland Lagersystem AB, we are part of the project where SIS is working with "steel storage systems". Apart from pallet racks, the new standards will also affect traditional racks, cantilever racks and deep stacking.
The Swedish Work Environment Authority has also started to introduce new regulations for the use of pallet racks. In step with growing awareness of the new regulations, the requirements on manufacturers with regard to safety and information are increasing.
Contact us and we will help you sort out the concepts behind the EU standards and give you good advice as to how you have to work with pallet racks in order to be on the safe side.
If risks may arise due to a collision, collision protection must be installed. Pallet racks must be equipped with protective devices that prevent the pallets from being pushed through the rack (i.e., so-called push through protection), unless this is manifestly unnecessary.
Collision protection with a height of not less than 400 mm must be placed next to the outer posts, where truck aisles cross.
Posts are marked with a model designation, to ensure that the right load diagram is read.
The support beams are marked with their model and length as guidance for reading from the correct maximum load sign.
