When it comes to AS4084 and pallet racking, there is no such thing as “close enough”. The Australian Standard for steel storage racking is AS4084-2012, and compliance with this standard is a legal obligation for all businesses that use pallet racking.
Choosing AS4084 compliant racking is not only the wise choice, but the only choice if you want to avoid costly fines and penalties. Not to mention the potential for property damage and injury if your racking is not up to Standard.
Racking audits are essential in ensuring your business is AS4084 compliant. These audits should be conducted by an experienced professional at least once a year, and more often if you believe damage may have occurred. Allrack has over 25 years experience in providing racking compliance solutions, and can provide you with a comprehensive audit report detailing any areas of non-compliance.
If damage is found during an audit, it is essential that it is repaired immediately. This not only ensures the safety of your employees and customers, but also minimises the cost of repairs. Allrack can provide a quote for repairs within 24 hours, so you can get your racking back up to Standard as quickly as possible.
Upright protectors (column guards) are one of the easiest and most effective ways to prevent damage to your pallet racking uprights. By absorbing the impact of a collision, they can significantly reduce the amount of damage caused by forklifts and other machinery. Allrack’s standard column guards are extremely heavy duty and screw bolted to the floor to make replacing them easier, however we can also provide high-density polyethylene (HDPE) upright protectors to protect the rack upright higher than 400mm off the floor.
