Retail Rack Rehab: A Case Study

Retail Rack Rehab: A Case Study

A manufacturer of handbags wanted to address unsafe rack concerns in their approximately 217,320 sq. ft. distribution center.


REB conducted a full on-site rack safety inspection of the distribution center. A significant number of damaged frames were found along with other typical rack damage. REB provided the manufacturer with a scope of work drawing detailing all damage and how critical each was.

REB returned to the facility to conduct the rack repairs. The damaged portion of each frame was removed, and a repair kit was then installed and bolted on to the existing frame. Additionally, column protection and end-of-row protection was installed to help avoid future damage.

The once damaged rack throughout the facility now complies with all ANSI/RMI rack safety regulations, making daily operations safer.

REB now conducts ongoing quarterly rack inspections in the distribution center to ensure the continuing safety of the rack system.

As a result, the distribution center is now much safer and their annual cost for repairs is lower.
