Steel static storage systems - Adjustable pallet racking - Tolerances, deformations and clearances
|Publication Date:||1 November 2008|
|ICS Code (Storage equipment):||53.080|
This European Standard specifies tolerances, deformations and clearances that pertain to the production, assembly and erection of pallet racking including the interaction with floors. These tolerances, deformations and clearances are important in relation to the functional requirements and ensuring the proper interaction of the handling equipment used by personnel, trained and qualified as competent, in association with the specific type of racking system. The interaction conditions are also important in determining the reliability of the storage system to ensure that the chance of an industrial truck impact, pallet impact or a system breakdown is acceptably low. The design safety philosophy given in prEN 15512 is based upon compliance with this standard. This European Standard gives guidance for a variety of issues including operating clearances, manufacturing, assembly and erection tolerance limitations, as well as deflection or strain deformation limitations under loads. This European Standard is limited to single deep adjustable beam pallet racking operated with industrial trucks or stacker cranes. Drive-in, double deep and satellite systems will be considered for inclusion in the document in the future. This European Standard specifically excludes the tolerances and deformation of the trucks and stacker cranes. It is the responsibility of the truck or stacker crane supplier and the client or user to ensure that the tolerances, deformations and clearances, as quoted in this European Standard for the racking systems, are acceptable for the safe operation of the overall system. This European Standard gives guidance to be used in conjunction with the latest information from the truck and stacker crane suppliers regarding turning radii, tolerances and deformations of the truck and stacker cranes.
