Rack Repair… Really? 3 Common Myths About Rack Repair

MYTH 1: Rack Manufacturers Don’t Approve Repairs
FACT: Rack Manufacturers Institute (RMI), the governing body of the storage rack industry, approves and endorses rack repair with engineering that meets RMI/ANSI MH 16.1. This specification states that the repaired component must be as strong as the original undamaged component. All major storage rack manufacturers are members of RMI and adhere to their recommendations.

Mac Rak partners with the country’s leading storage rack engineering company to produce the most industry compliant repair products available.

MYTH 2: Rack Repair Voids the Warranty
FACT: Rack repair kits don’t void a warranty, damaging the rack does! When a frame has been damaged an engineered repair kit will restore it to its undamaged capacity.

MYTH 3: Rack Repair Can Be as Expensive as Frame Replacement
FACT: Depending on the degree of impact resistance required, the rack repair kit can be similar to the price of frame replacement, but in most cases repair labor is a fraction of the cost. The facility disruption is minimal with the repair process complete in about ¼ o f the time compared to frame replacement. Replacement frames offer no additional impact resistance, and can be damaged again and again. Rack Repair… Really? 3 Common Myths About Rack Repair
