Seismic Considerations

Multirack Pallet Racking and Shelving Systems are experienced in Seismic Design Pallet Rack.

These storage systems are engineered for use in areas where seismic activity or other severe conditions exist and include welded-on seismic footplates.

Obviously it is important to maintain and future proof the integrity of your racking and clearly from a safety and hazard stand point it is crucial to ensure your racking system meets Storage Equipment Manufacturers Association (SEMA) guidelines and of course seismic regulations.

You need a storage system that rolls with the punches and this New Zealand manufactured product delivers
