Understanding the Importance of Anti-Collapse Mesh in Pallet Racking Systems

When it comes to ensuring the safety and integrity of pallet racking systems, the need for anti-collapse mesh warrants careful consideration. While the necessity of anti-collapse mesh may vary depending on the specific characteristics of each site, there are essential factors to consider.

Firstly, if you have a single-entry run of one or more bays of racking, it’s crucial to recognize that these bays should only be loaded from one side. In such cases, anti-collapse mesh serves as a vital safety measure, protecting against potential incidents where items might fall from pallets.

However, exceptions to this rule exist, with the most common being when the rack backs onto a wall that extends the full height of the rack. In such scenarios, the wall itself acts as a protective barrier, reducing the need for anti-collapse mesh.

In instances where doubt persists regarding the necessity of anti-collapse mesh, it’s advisable to conduct a thorough warehouse pallet racking inspection. Seeking the expertise of an independent inspection company can provide valuable insights into potential safety hazards and necessary precautions.

Moreover, anti-collapse mesh may also be installed to the rear of pallet racking, even when it backs against a wall. This additional layer of protection serves to safeguard windows or partitioning, particularly in situations where racks are positioned adjacent to offices or mezzanine floors with office spaces.
