Engineering

One of the clear missions of stow is maintaining full compliance with the latest norms & regulations, from design over calculation, to production and installation.

Allied Storage and Stow are now fully ready for the implementation of the updated norm EN 15512:2020 for all pallet racking based systems.

The norm is applicable as of 1st of June 2021 in all CEN member countries (excl Netherlands) and can be seen as the latest state of the art for designing adjustable pallet racking systems

Our engineering & sales teams are trained and all related processes are adapted, to ensure stow is fully compliant.

The update of EN 15512:2009 to EN 15512:2020 results in a safer and more uniform design in all European countries. The new norm is more aligned with Eurocode 3, a set of European standards that includes the rules and principles for the calculation of steel structures.

The main updates in the technical section are:

  • A new way of calculating the sway imperfection of the pallet racking frame structures. The  same philosophy as Eurocode 3 has been applied resulting in higher initial imperfections
  • Equivalent cross-section properties of upright for resistance and stiffness are to be considered
  • Load factor adopted for the unit load is equal to 1.4 and the material factor is taken equal to 1.1 for resistance of cross-sections and members to instability
  • Additional bending moment and deflection in beam due to looseness

The application domain of this updated norm is for all pallet racking systems:

  • Pal Rack®
  • Highbay rack double deep, Satellite
  • Mobile pallet racking
  • Racking for stow Atlas 1D and 2D
  • Pallet flow racking
  • Pick towers based on Pal Rack components

Not included: stow Drive-in & Drive-through

The updated norm EN 15512:2020 doesn’t impact existing pallet racking installations in case of replacement of damaged items. The original design standard is maintained.
In case of modifications and / or extensions to the initial configuration including change of load conditions, stow needs to be consulted and the new standard EN 15512:2020 needs to be taken into account.

Your stow quotation clearly mentions the involved norm calculation.
