Q: Can I replace sacrificial legs on my pallet racking?
I have been asked whether it is possible to retro-fit sacrificial legs to existing pallet racking uprights in order to replace damaged sections near the feet. The existing uprights do not currently have sacrificial legs – in short, can we cut off the ‘bad’ section and replace this with a sacrificial sections?
A: It can be done in great care, and even then there is often something that goes wrong in the process! It also depends on your rack type, whether you are using the official ‘sacrificial leg’, or merely a low level ‘splice’ that some use for the economy. Usually the cheaper the solution, the more difficult the task!
If you purchase a replacement upright with a sacrificial leg already fitted then it is a much simpler operation to replace the damaged sacrificial length in the event of subsequent damage.
Either way we would recommend you seek advice from us and we can help you decide the best solution.
