FAQ's for shelf inspection

Certified racking inspectors are responsible for inspecting racking in accordance with DIN EN 15635. These inspectors must have completed special training and have undergone regular further training. In addition, they are expected to have extensive experience in testing racks.

A specially trained employee carefully inspects each rack on a weekly basis and prepares a record of the inspection. In addition, the racking system is inspected by an expert once a year.

It is checked whether the rack is assembled according to the assembly instructions and perfectly aligned, whether parts and the structure itself are hinged, whether impacts and overloads have caused any impairment, whether the loads are evenly distributed and the maximum permissible load is not exceeded, whether the fuses against lifting or starting are intact, whether the maximum load markings and safety instructions are up to date and whether the load units ensure stable unloading.

During the visual inspection, there may be damage or defects that need to be classified:

Hazard Level Green: Damage is so minor that monitoring is sufficient, but marking must take place.

Hazard level Orange: Potentially dangerous damage is evident here. If the rack is unloaded, the damage must be repaired before it is put back into service.

Hazard Level Red: The classification indicates very severe damage. In this situation, immediate unloading and locking of the rack is required until the damage is repaired or the rack is replaced. The work must be documented and proof of stability must be provided in writing in the event of a rack repair.
