The incident shown to the right could have been avoided. This collapse was caused by a lack of knowledgeable warehouse rack inspections, over-looked, and under estimated pallet rack damage. Failure to address damaged and missing pallet rack components led to this tragedy. This tragedy could have been prevented by regular warehouse rack inspections and repair or replacement of damaged pallet rack components. Fortunately, no one was injured in the scenario.
Safety is an important consideration in any business environment. For years, addressing warehouse rack damage was a matter of replacement of rack components, especially the load-bearing columns. FBS Group, Inc. has broken new ground with a pallet rack repair system which eliminates the problem associated with replacement.
FBS Group, Inc. has versatile capabilities, what is custom to our competition is standard to us. There is no limited size, style, or off the shelf item. We manufacture all our products without the added custom made charges other companies might charge.
Under the FBS system, warehouse rack repairs are done with virtually all product in place. Using our unique patented jack and lifting system, the upright frame is supported, the damaged section is removed precisely, and a prefabricated pallet rack repair kit is installed. Our weldors are AWS certified.
Warehouse racking in many warehouses across the U.S. is aging and is being continually damaged by forklift contact.
We repair all brands and types of rack…even racking not made anymore. Our fabrication team makes pallet rack repair kits for any style rack you have
FBS Group, Inc. offers standard welded and bolted pallet rack repair kits options with much improved impact over the original equipment. We also provide an extremely impact resistant frame base option, bolted or welded. The FBS supplied, prefabricated upright frame repair kit incorporates a second upright section which makes the repaired section far more resistant to lift truck damage than the original equipment.
The FBS Group, Inc. system is far less expensive because product does not have to be unloaded, and little dismantling is required, the labor needed to execute repairs is reduced by up to 75% versus the old method of replacement. The prefabricated pallet rack repair kits are much less costly than a new component. The net is that the FBS system costs less than half that of the old method of replacement.
The FBS Group, Inc. warehouse rack repair system is warranted. The product and process is so effective, FBS provides a 5-year warranty on materials and workmanship with each repair.
