Increase The Value of Your Records Center
Appearance matters, and speaks volumes about your business to your potential investors. Investors look closely at the overall wear and tear of your records center, including what repairs will be needed and what products or components need to be installed. A run-down records center decreases your company’s value.
A professional Life Safety and Remediation Assessment is a preemptive way to increase the value of your records center to prepare for an investor evaluation. An assessment focuses on two main areas: damage concerns and protection recommendations.
Specifically, the degree and type of damage is identified in order to determine whether repair or replacement is needed. For example, in many cases repair for a damaged upright is preferable over entire frame replacement, as repair kits are installed in-place and are often less expensive, more quickly installed, and less disruptive to operations. Concerns that are identified include:
- Upright column damage;
- Horizontal and diagonal strut damage;
- Footplate damage;
- Overloaded beams or frames;
- Anchor damage;
- Missing or damaged components;
- Leaning frames;
- Beam damage.
Why is it important to address these concerns prior to an investor evaluation? A records center must comply with all applicable safety regulations in order to satisfy insurance auditors and safety regulators, as well as appeal to customers. Some of these regulations can be found in ANSI/RMI MH16.1, which sets forth standards regarding identifying and repairing/replacing damaged rack.
