Pallet Racking Sacrificial Legs

Racking systems inevitably suffer from forklift truck impact and the consequential damage to frames; yet in 90% of cases damage is restricted to the first 1000mm of the upright. It seems logical therefore, to repair only the damaged area rather than having to replace a complete frame. A full frame replacement requires the dismantling of a number of racking bays, which is both a time-consuming and expensive repair. We have the perfect solution for repairing damaged frames with the minimum amount of disruption and cost - the Sacrificial Leg.  The sacrificial leg overcomes the problems caused by damaged frames. Sacrificial leg frames have a splice built into the front upright and the bottom diagonal is reversed. The specially designed leg absorbs any impact to the upright, leaving the rest of the frame undamaged.

Benefits:
a. No need to wait for delivery of a new frame.
b. Legs can be replaced in as little as twenty minutes.
c. Ease of repair encourages operators to deal with damage as and when it occurs.
d. A safer working environment at a manageable cost.

We can design new installations to incorporate Sacrificial Legs. We can inspect existing Pallet Racking installations for damage and, in some cases, Sacrificial Legs can be fitted retrospectively. A column protector is also a viable option.
