Q. What areas of my warehouse would I use these type of products?
A. Rack backs and safety netting are commonly used on the backside of racks in areas along main walkways. In most cases, these products are installed from the floor to above the highest point of material storage. If you have a hand pick application at floor level with storage above, these products can be designed to start above the picking area to protect employees from falling material from above.
Q. Are these products difficult to install?
A. Rack backs and safety netting are relatively easy to install. The netting is made of nylon and can be manufactured to fit your specific rack application, so there is no cutting involved. The parts for installation of the netting will depend on the particular weight and storage methods that you use. Wire reinforcement may be needed for some designs. Rack backs are made of wire panels. These panels are designed with a flush or offset bracket mounting kit that will attach to a beam, wire deck, or upright depending on the product manufacturer.
