Rack safety on show

29 July 2016

Rack collapses are catastrophic for business, and forklifts moving unchecked in pallet racking areas are a recipe for disaster, A-Safe, a leader in safety barrier protection, says.

Protecting racking and preventing rack damage is essential good practice for health and safety managers – but what happens when racking is impacted straight after an inspection, or during a night shift? There is still dangerous ‘dead time’ between daily inspections where racking remains vulnerable.

Launching in the UK at IMHX (stand 9F61), RackEye by A-SAFE is designed to change the way health and safety-focused companies look after their critical racking structures.

It monitors your racking on a permanent, round-the-clock, 24-hour basis, providing instant alerts when racking is impacted. It also identifies ‘the damage you don’t see’ – those dangerous areas where racking suffers frequent low-intensity impacts that erode rack integrity.

RackEye combines these factors with the ability for senior users to control a multi-site network of racking through a smartphone app. Additional features include complete rack leg history data, impressive savings on rack inspection resources and manpower, and efficient installation.

At the CeMAT trade show in Germany, RackEye received huge interest and immediate demand from a host of blue chip companies and site managers. IMHX will be the UK reveal of this first-to-market product.

RackEye is created by A-SAFE, a company that has already changed the industrial health and safety landscape as the inventor of impact-absorbent polymer barriers.

The new iFlex barrier range is stronger and longer and includes never-before-seen barrier enhancements, including hygiene, modularity and multi-directional capabilities that are said to make for a better, more economical fit inside a facility.

You can hear what A-SAFE says about rack protection and integrating the new technology into your racking protection practice at daily IMHX seminars in the
A-SAFE-sponsored seminar programme.
