OSHA & ANSI MH 16.1: 2012 Pallet rack locking device GUIDELINES & CODES
5.4.2 Beam Locking Device Except for movable-shelf racks, beams subject to machine loading shall have connection locking devices (or bolts) capable of resisting an upward force of 1,000 pounds (453.6 kg) per connection without failure or disengagement.
Our Pallet Rack Safety Bolts are often purchased by safety managers who are looking to ensure pallet rack safety in their warehouse. With the popularity of used pallet racking the universal drop pin has become extremely popular.
Most pallet rack systems are engineered with a cross beam safety clip that engages into the pallet rack upright frame for safety. This clip is secures the cross beam into the upright frame so that if it is knocked, bumped or hit up, the pallet rack safety clip prevents the cross beam from easily becoming disengaged. When these pallet rack clips become damaged or lost, pallet rack cross beams are vulnerable for a beam to become disengaged if hit, bumped or shaken buy the fork lift. Our universal pallet rack clip provides a solution to most types of pallet racking systems.
Pallet Rack Safety Bolts – 500 Pack
Quantities: 500 individual drop pins, enough to be used in 250 cross beams (2 per beam, 1 per beam to frame connector).
What does OSHA say about Pallet Rack Safety Bolts?
OSHA is very broad when it comes to pallet rack and warehouse shelving safety. To paraphrase and put it into our own words they basically say: Materials in your warehouse or shelving systems should not create hazards for your employees. Due to the detail involved in rack storage system OSHA will often times refer to the ANSI document listed above. With this being a grey area we would always recommend going on the safe side and order pallet rack safety clips for all of your pallet rack beam levels. Typically your rack system will require to drop pins per beam which is 4 per beam level. Even if your rack system is new we sell alot of boxes of 50 to safety managers so that they have them on hand when relocating beam levels etc. Pallet rack installation crews across the United States order these by the thousands when installing used teardrop or slotted pallet racks. The drop pins can add security to a used rack system that may have many lost or damage pallet rack safety clips.
Manufacturers that have specific locking clips that can be replaced with our pallet rack drop pins are: New Style SpaceRak Teardrop, Old Style SpaceRak Teardrop, Lug Style Interlake Mecalux Pallet Rack, New Teardrop Interlake Pallet Racks, Ridg-U-Rak Teardrop & Slotted Pallet Racking, Republic Pallet Racking (inside hole), Wireway Husky Teardrop Pallet Racks, Paltier and more. That said, like any other engineered system we would always recommend that you have the original engineered clips to replace the lost or damaged locking devices with but often times these manufacturers do not sell the safety locking devices seperately or direct. This means you go on a wild goose chase to find a simple pallet rack safety clip. That is why we distribute the pallet rack safety drop pin, secure online ordering, fast shipping, universal design and thousands in stock.
