After reviewing, the company went ahead with the nine most urgent rack repairs, that included seven (7) single column rack repair kits and two (2) replacement frames. The two frames that were replaced were damaged beyond repair and could not support any reasonable load capacity without posing a danger of collapsing.


1. Pallets on floor and first beam level were removed for the rack repair, all other levels were able to remain loaded.
