The ROS™ Rack Repair System
The DEKRA Business Units "Automotive", "Industrial" and "Personnel" provide professional and innovative services in the fields of testing, expert appraisals, international claims settlement, consulting, industrial testing, product testing, certification, environmental protection and qualification.In 2011, DEKRA officially certified the ROS™ racking repair process to the hugely important British & European standard: EN 15635 – The application and maintenance of storage equipment. Adopted by the British Standards Institute in 2008, the EN 15635 norm is the standard that all British and European users and suppliers of pallet racking must conform to with regard to the inspection and maintenance of their racking systems.
Since achieving this important milestone, ROS™ have experienced immense and unparalleled levels of growth throughout the UK and Europe.
Major racking manufacturers from all across Europe appoint The Dr Möll Institute of Engineering to verify their own structural calculations to ensure compliance with the various EN standards that have been in force since 2008.
After thorough and extensive testing of damaged racking uprights repaired using the ROS™ repair method, Dr Möll concluded that "no reduction of the load bearing capacity could be observed".Coming from Europe's leading authority on the structural testing of racking, we view this as a glowing compliment!
In 2010, Bayer Technology Services conducted their own unique and thorough testing of the upright repairs conducted by ROS™. Bayer concluded that all uprights repaired using the ROS™ method were “at least the same strength as before, in some cases higher”. In addition, Bayer also stated that providing a repair was limited to a maximum of three times, “there are no indications of material fractures or weakness whatsoever”.Yet another conclusive test report from a world-leading institute to add to our growing collection!
During 2011, Packer Engineering conducted thorough research and testing on damaged racking uprights that had been repaired using the ROS™ technology. Packer Engineering concluded that repairs using the ROS™ technology is “well within industry requirements and specification”. Additionally, and in keeping with the numerous other testing reports undertaken on the ROS™ upright repair system, Packer Engineering stated that “some uprights even saw an increase in load capabilities” after repairs had been carried out using ROS™ technology.
