Storage Rack Design

Storage Rack Design

Storage Rack Design

(OP)
I am looking for design criteria for designing industrial storage racks.  I am primarily looking for impact forces to rack posts from fork trucks and seismic factors.  Any help is appreciated.  Thanks in advance.  WDM

RE: Storage Rack Design

If it's in the USA, the governing design specification/standard is :SPECIFICATION FOR THE DESIGN, TESTING AND UTILIZATION OF INDUSTRIAL STEEL STORAGE RACKS (Latest edition:1997)". It's developed by the RMI (Rack Manufacturers Institute, Inc. You can also visit the following web site for more information.

Hope it helpful.
