A food and beverage company wanted to address damaged selective rack in their freezer where they store pallets of frozen food. In the tight environment of a freezer, the trucks were more prone to running into the racking and causing damage.
REB was called in to fix the damaged rack by installing 8' 4" high slant rack repair kits. In addition to fixing the damaged rack, REB also suggested a safety assessment in the entire freezer. Specific components targeted for review included front and back frame columns, horizontal and diagonal struts, footplates, anchors, row spacers and frame extensions.
The assessment REB conducted found further damage and safety concerns. Safety solutions that REB completed in the freezer included:
- Repaired frames with 8’ 4” slant rack repair kits
- Repaired frame struts
- Replaced damaged beams
- Repositioned (18) frame posts and tighten anchors
- Installed (2) missing footplate anchors in row end protection
Successfully completing these repairs in a below zero freezer environment presented unique challenges. Because of the harshness of the environment the REB crew could only work for 20 minutes at a time. They also had to wear layers of protective gear.
Management can rest assured that their freezer storage now complies with all ANSI/RMI rack safety regulations. Daily operations are safer, and employees know they're in a safe working environment.
