RMI Announces R-Mark for Welded Wire Rack Decking
The Material Handling Industry of America recently announced that the RMI (Rack Manufacturers Institute) has certified several manufacturers of wire rack decking “R-Mark” compliant, meaning that these companies have conformed to the Institute’s testing and utilization standards. The industry developed the latest and most comprehensive consensus documents ANSI MH16.1 – 2008 – Specification for the Design, Testing and Utilization of Industrial Steel Storage Racks and MH26.2 – 2007 – Specification for the Design, Testing and Utilization of Welded Wire Rack Decking. Members of RMI voluntarily choose to conform to ANSI MH16.1 – 2008 and MH26.2 – 2007 and any successor document(s).
The R-Mark Certification Process is administered through a panel of independent USA Registered Professional Engineers.
Certification requires the submitter to…
- Demonstrate a working knowledge of ANSI MH16.1 – 2008 and ANSI MH26.2 – 2007 including delivering evidence of various physical tests needed to compute appropriate load tables
- Upon satisfactory completion of the Certification Process, the submitter is awarded a license to apply a unique registered R-Mark to designs
- The R-Mark is only applied by a USA Licensed Professional Engineer along side of his or her PE Seal
