Overstacking a rack is dangerous. whether it's for tires, general goods, giant coils, grains, or whatever, there's a weight limit that your rack was built to specifications for. This weight limit, however, isn't always easy for warehouse managers to convey to their employees, regarsless of how important it is to warehouse safety. There may be a missing link in the chain of information, where the manager creates a sign which is covered by something else, or the lessons get lost in the shuffle of employee turnover. However, this important lesson needs to be imparted at every level, as no company can afford for their inventory to crash to the floor.
Overstacking isn't the only problem though. Racks can be weakened by collisions with forklifts, by improper stacking, by being in improper configurations or environments, or they may arrive in an unsatisfactory condition. This last one, however, is one that Tier-Rack Corp can fix.
