Your warehouse would likely look pretty empty without your pallet racking. The same principle applies if you didn’t have warehouse sprinkler systems. After all, they safeguard everything of value in your facility in the event of a fire. But how can you help your pallet racking be even safer and your sprinkler system even more effective?
Wrangle your products
Depending on the size and volume of your facility, as well as the type of products and materials you house, your facility’s system will likely differ. On a related note, sprinkler fire code compliance can also vary because of these details. They also vary at the local level, yet are standard both nationally and internationally.
Of course, you don’t need us to tell you that your products should be well-organized and your flue spaces clear. However, with differences in staffing, scheduling, inventory, or anything else that can fluctuate from time to time, it’s understandable if things can get out of hand.
To prevent this, you don’t need to overhaul your pallet racking design or add costly safety measures that require a large financial investment. In fact, Adrian’s has plenty of affordable, durable products — like straps, nets, and more — that can easily wrangle your products in a matter of seconds.
Keep flue spaces clear
Wrangling your products properly, of course, will also keep your flue spaces clear. That being said, you should be mindful of both types of flue spaces — both transverse and longitudinal. With clearer flue spaces, your sprinklers will also be able to have the reach necessary to extinguish any flames.
You can apply any of Adrian’s products to help keep your flue spaces clear. For example, you can add front-of-the-rack protection with Modular Safety Netting, which keeps loose cartons or objects from falling into a workspace, aisleway, or equipment. For back-of-the-rack protection, you will benefit the most from rack safety nets, particularly Adrian’s Fixed Rack Safety Net.
Make safety checks easier
Not only can warehouse safety solutions provide added safety for inventory, equipment, and employees, but they can also increase productivity, even when it comes to safety checks. Products like Adrian’s feature high-visibility yellow netting and accents that look great and are easy to spot.
If you’re wondering if solutions like these will get in the way or are difficult to install, here’s some more good news: Adrian’s solutions require no additional tools or retrofitting and install in just seconds. The Sliding Rack Safety Net is another great example. It can move quickly for easy access in e-commerce fulfillment operations.
In fact, each Adrian’s product is as easy to install as the last, and the applications are nearly endless. For example, the Modular Safety Netting allows “shingling” or overlapping for added protection.
Give you peace of mind
Like proper warehouse sprinkler systems, additional safety measures should give you peace of mind. Not only are you going the extra step to protect your products and your employees on a day-to-day basis, but you’re also keeping your facility secure in the event of a fire.
