  RACK SAFETY
 
  Rack Repair
 
 The following are options for repairing damaged rack:

 -- Replacement: when original or updated engineering documentation is available, replacement of damaged components with identical parts from the original manufacturer may be an option (the rack system will still need to meet capacity requirements)

  

-- Rack Repair Kits:  depending on the situation, the damaged section of an upright can be replaced with a pre-engineered rack repair kit, which is typically bolted or welded in place and anchored to the floor)

 

-- Welded Field Repair:  in some cases, welded repair may be done in the field (all work would have to be in compliance with all appropriate codes) 

 

Make sure to consult with a qualified engineer before performing any rack repair.
