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/FEM 10.3.01- 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.
