In case of storage of materials on pallet racks, particular attention needs to be paid to the safety of staff who move through corridors. Rack nets are increasingly used to provide pallet racks with fall protection. To prevent pallets or loose materials from falling off a rack when they are pushed too far with a forklift truck, a rack net wall can be mounted behind the rack. These rack nets prevent not only physical injuries, but also damage to the goods. The rack nets are tensioned in a framework of steel wire ropes installed on the racks by means of spacers. Partly thanks to the quick installation, these rack nets are cheaper than wire-mesh walls. The rack nets can also be easily moved whenever the rack layout is changed. Duranet provides rack nets to the principal pallet rack manufacturers in Belgium and neighbouring countries.
The rack nets are available in various colours and mesh sizes. For the installation, Duranet works together with experienced installers.
Spacers are mounted at the top and bottom of the back of the rack frame (at max. 8m intervals both vertically and horizontally). An additional wire rope support is mounted at the top and bottom of each intermediate frame. The spacers and wire rope supports are fastened by means of two M10 x 30mm bolts, spring washers and nuts.
Steel wire ropes are used to form a framework to which the nets are attached. The wire ropes are fastened to the eye bolts on the spacers by means of wire rope clamps and tightened slightly by means of turnbuckles. The nets are then attached to the wire ropes by means of carabiners at 20cm intervals.
