Certification of maximum load supported by an industrial rack.

To comply with the Prevention of Labor Risks Law.

Certification through structural calculation of an industrial rack

Customer requirements

  • To know for sure the maximum permissible weight of a shelf.
  • Under the responsibility of the labour risk prevention, it was necessary to know the type of loads and how they should be placed.

Project approach and development

  • The project required over 50 hours of Ingeniería SAMAT
  • Structural calculation with ANSYS, of the shelves according to the current regulations on these elements: UNE-EN 15512: Storage on metal shelves.
  • Preparation of a warning sign with instructions to be followed by all personnel who will use the shelves.


Main features

  • Metal structures with unknown origin and no use or maintenance manuals, only the material from which they are made was certain.
  • They are two similar shelves with a very specific load type.
