with a solution that minimizes the same result. We adhere to RMI Specification - Section 1.4.9.
Repair kit is structurally much stronger than existing upright - Typical construction is double posted structural with a front angle deflector.
The connection is the only question of the repair kit's strength - a welded splice sleeve is used to create a connection point stronger than the rest of the upright
Foot Plate is oversized and designed to miss the current anchor points creating a new stronger anchoring location
On sight welding is to be performed by a certified welder with rack repair experience
If demanded a complete set of stamped structural drawings can be provided (at a cost of approximately $1,000.00) detailing the repair.
Upon visible damage, the pertinent portions of the rack shall be unloaded immediately by the user until the damaged portion is repaired or replaced.
Bottom rack level on both sides of upright to be repaired must be emptied (assuming beam level is below rack repair level).
A 10 ton Hydraulic ball jack then engages the racking and takes the weight off the area of the upright to be repaired
The portion of the upright damaged is cut loose along with horizontal brace and diagonal brace. Repair kit is inserted and welded (bolted options also available) into place and anchored.
