Colby RackMan Certification

Pallet racking in Australia is covered under the Australian Standard AS 4084 Steel Storage Racking. This standard deals not only with design but also covers racking installation and operation. When buying pallet racking, it is essential that you make sure the rack system is not only designed to the standard, but is installed to the standard and is operated in accordance with the standard. That way your storage system will be compliant, safe and durable.

The structural integrity of ColbyRACK is ensured through our RackMan program, a proprietary software tool developed in-house by Dematic’s world renowned structural engineers. RackMan certification is the ColbyRACK product performance badge of excellence, and means that your system will always meet and often exceed the safety standards inherent in AS 4084. Through the automated generation of RackMan certification letters, customised to a particular racking configuration, we can guarantee the load capacity and strength of ColbyRACK. Colby RackMan can be relied upon to produce rack designs that are safe, thereby protecting your staff and products giving you peace of mind, and helping you fulfil your fiduciary responsibilities.

The safe racking designs

Warning: All racks are not created equal

The availability of imported “brand-compatible” racking in the Australian marketplace has increased over recent years. There is no shortage of generic statements and certificates from the manufacturers and suppliers claiming adherence to Australian and international standards. In some instances, published frame load capacities have been shown to be non-compliant with AS 4084. These are serious concerns for the industry.

Such generic statements from other suppliers about racking standards compliance are meaningless. Our Colby RackMan tool provides certifications that are fully customised to the particular racking configuration at hand.
