What standards does Damotech abide by?

Damotech’s products are built in-house to respect all the governing rack standards and guidelines.

Our services, including rack inspections and load capacity calculations, are formulated to ensure that your warehouse meets the requirements of all governing rack standards in North America. In the case of damaged pallet racking, we can provide you with repair solutions specifically designed for your racking systems designed to respect the latest standards.  

Damotech is an Associate Member of RMI, the Rack Manufacturers Institute, which comprises rack manufacturing and repair leaders. RMI holds its members to the highest standards, and the membership is a gauge of the quality of our products and services. With rack safety being the main focus for both Damotech and RMI, we strive to limit liability and risk surrounding the repair of damaged racks with our engineered solutions. We also strive to provide the very best services for your warehouse. We are here to help you ensure that your warehouse meets all requirements set out by the following building codes. 

In the US, the IBC (International Building Code) refers to MH16.1 (RMI’s Rack Design Standard), which defines how racking systems should be designed and maintained. Damotech ensures that we remain up to date with the latest revisions of this code to respect these standards and requirements. 

In Canada, the latest NBC (National Building Code) refers to CSA S16 for the design of steel structures, including pallet racks in Annex N, but CSA S345 replaced this Annex as of May 2023. Damotech remains up to date with the latest revisions of this code to ensure its conformity with all new requirements.
