Should I Repair My Damaged Pallet Rack?

I have been asked many times over, "What is the savings of using a rack repair kit over upright replacement". There are several advantages that come into play with pallet rack upright repair. A rack repair kit is usually the best alternative when the damage to the pallet rack upright is low, which it usually is (rack damage is often caused by forklifts or other warehouse vehicles). The repair kit can be installed without disassembling the rack. This means that you do not have to take down the beams or decks or remove in rack sprinklers to make your rack safe again. Often the pallets can be unloaded "as you go" so you don't need to pay for off site storage of your pallets. The ... Read more

Military Mezzanines and Platforms

American Warehouse Systems designs, manufactures, and sells the number one mezzanine system to the Department of Defense; American Mezzanine Systems. Our mezzanines are designed to withstand the rigors of any military application. We use structural steel I-beams and/or open web bar joists with additional reinforcement for maximum strength. Our columns are constructed from ASTM A500 square tubing to minimize deflection and continue past the mezzanine floor to act as an extremely secure attachment point for our all welded three rail handrail. Our stairways are also all welded one piece construction to avoid any loosening effects commonly seen in bolt together designs. American Mezzanine Systems are also backed by our industry exclusive, hassle free, Lifetime Warranty. American Warehouse Systems has manufactured thousands of mezzanine systems for ... Read more

A Mezzanine Installed Through Your Office While You Work!

Recently American Warehouse Systems completed a rather complex mezzanine project for one of our clients.  F&M Plastics in Osceola, WI called on American Warehouse Systems because they needed additional storage space in their factory's warehouse.  This in and of itself is a straight forward task.  The spin?  They wanted us to design and install a mezzanine system over an existing office area including a large break room and some bathrooms. This project presented a welcomed challenge for our design and application engineers. Unlike many of the mezzanines systems we design and install over existing in-plant offices we  were not able to simply span the structure with mezzanine columns.  In this particular application, it was necessary to set some of the mezzanine columns inside the interior ...
