10.2.06 - Part 1 - Design of Hand Loaded Low Rise Steel Static Shelving

This document defines the design procedure for hand loaded Static Steel Shelving verified by testing. Shelving systems are generally standard products where design by calculation alone may not be appropriate or may not lead to the most economical solutions. It is, therefore, usually appropriate to design on the basis of testing or a combination of tests and calculation.

FEM 10.2.06 is based on the safety and design concept of the European standards series “Steel Static Storage Systems” and this document provides supplementary design rules to suit the particular requirements of Low Rise Shelving systems.

10.2.06 - Part 2 - Design of Hand Loaded Steel Static Shelving

This document defines the design procedure for hand loaded Static Steel Shelving verified by analytical methods. Shelving systems are generally standard products where design by calculation alone may not be appropriate or may not lead to the most economical solutions and it is, therefore, usually appropriate to design on the basis of a combination of tests and calculation.

FEM 10.2.06 is based on the safety and design concept of the European standards series “Steel Static Storage Systems” and this document provides supplementary design rules to suit the particular requirements of Shelving systems.

10.2.07 - Design of Drive In and Drive Through Racking: Design Code

This document defines the design procedure for Drive-In Racks and Drive-Through Racks.

Drive-In Racks and Drive-Through Racks are pallet storage systems differing from adjustable pallet racking in terms of their structural elements, structural behaviour and method of operation.

FEM 10.2.07 is based on the safety and design concept of the European standards series “Steel Static Storage Systems” and provides supplementary design rules where the specific requirements of Drive-In Racks and Drive-Through Racks do not allow the full application of EN 15512.

Please note that there are two Worked Examples available for this code: see 10.2.17 Parts 1 & 2

10.2.08 - Recommendations for the Design of Static Steel Pallet Racking in Seismic Conditions

This FEM Document 10.2.08 has been prepared by Working Group “APR Seismic design“ of the FEM Racking & Shelving Product Group (European Racking Federation) and deals with the seismic design of adjustable steel storage pallet racks.

This code has been used as the basis for EN 16681 (2017) Steel static storage systems - Adjustable pallet racking systems - Principles for seismic design.

This European Standard EN 16681 specifies the structural design requirements applicable to all types of adjustable pallet racking systems fabricated from steel members, intended for storage of unit loads and subject to seismic actions. Available from European Standards, it provides guidelines for the design of clad rack buildings in seismic zones, where requirements are not covered in the EN 1998 series. This European Standard does not cover other generic types of storage structures and does not apply to mobile storage systems, drive-in, drive-through and cantilever racks or static steel shelving systems or to the design of seismic isolated racking structures.

10.2.09 - Design of Cantilever Racking

This FEM Code specifies the structural design principles and requirements applicable to all types of cantilever rack systems fabricated from steel members intended for the storage of unit loads and subject to predominantly static loads. Components include columns, cantilever arms, bases, bracing and beams. Bracing systems are required in order to achieve a three dimensional & braced structure with aisles to enable industrial trucks to reach the storage positions. Although components are standardised, they are only standard to each manufacturer. Cantilever racking can be used for internal or external storage and this important publication includes calculations and design principles for this specialised form of racking.

10.2.10 - Storage systems with rail dependent storage and retrieval equipment - Interfaces

This FEM Document 10.2.10 (9.841) has been prepared by the FEM (European Federation of Material Handling) Product Groups "Intralogistic Systems" and "Racking and Shelving" to give guidance to end-users, system designers/planners, contractors and sub contractors.  This Code of Practice specifies also the position, obligations and responsibilities of the parties involved.

10.2.11 - Part 1 - Rail Dependent Storage and Retrieval Systems: Consideration of accidental kinetic energy action in compliance with EN 528. Pallet Racking

This document gives guidance relating to R&S operated by Storage/Retrieval Machines, considering the requirements of the Machinery Directive with regard to possible hazards and risks which should be avoided or minimized.

EN 528: 2008 “Rail dependent storage and retrieval equipment – Safety” is the Standard for this area but due to substantially increased velocities of load handling devices over the last decade, friction clutches will no longer resolve the issues relating to potential impacts. This code has been written to consider possible collisions inducing kinetic energy to the R&S. Kinetic energy design is not common practice and this code provides guidance for single and double deep beam pallet racking, as well as pallet shuttle racking.

10.2.15 - Part 1 - Worked Example Adjustable Pallet Racking According to EN 15512: Unbraced Racking

As one of the Standards in the European EN-series “Steel static storage systems”, EN 15512 “Adjustable pallet racking systems – Principles for structural design” was published in October 2009. Due to the relative complexity of this particular load bearing structure in cold-formed steel, ERF/FEM R&S has decided to draft a Worked Example as guidance to the structural engineering of this rack type, taking into account decades of design experience.

FEM 10.2.15- Part 1 deals with the structural design calculation example of an unbraced adjustable pallet racking, in accordance with EN 15512: 2009 : structural modelling and analysis, using appropriate finite element software. The mechanical component properties are assumed, but should be determined in accordance with EN 15512. This document is particularly useful for small and medium enterprises, as well as for checking engineers

10.2.16 - Design and Use of Rack Protection for Adjustable Pallet Racking

Upright and Frame Protection

The purpose of this code is to provide information on the requirements, design and use of frame protection and upright protection, freestanding and upright-connected, of pallet racking. Such protection may prevent damage to uprights and upright frame bracing members, depending on the level of impact.

Minimising the possibility of damage to pallet racking is one of the important challenges facing the storage industry.

The form of protection relies on a number of factors, including:

   1. Specification in accordance with EN15629

   2. Design in accordance with EN15512 and EN15620

   3. Installation

   4. Defined responsibilities of the person responsible for storage equipment safety (PRSES) in accordance with EN15635

   5. Training of the operatives

   6. Inspection and maintenance in accordance with EN15635

The provision of physical protectors should not be considered as a substitute for the correct provision of the above items. Consideration of rack protection may be part of the risk assessments to limit the effect of a potential impact.

10.3.01 - Part 1 - Tolerances, Deformations and Clearances in the Storage System

Storage systems operated by automated Storage/Retrieval (S/R) machines, such as stacker cranes, in combination with racking do not have visual checks to ensure correct depositing and picking of unit loads (UL) to be stored. Such operations should be performed safely.

FEM 9.831-1/FEM10.3.01- Part 1 gives guidance for single and double deep beam pallet racking, for the calculation of minimum clearances and a number of examples are provided within the document.
