It's the rack repair kit that started it all. This permanent repair solution is designed to fix damaged rack columns and uprights on any storage rack system. It does not decrease or affect the original load capacity of the pallet rack.
For those in the material handling industry who operate a warehouse or distribution center, and are familiar with the challenges of maintaining rack safety or dealing with damaged pallet racks due to forklift impact, this solution is for you!
This made-to-measure product is designed to withstand shocks and impacts from forklifts, their blades, outriggers, and the pallets they carry. It’s so indestructible that it comes with a lifetime warranty against impact. That’s right. Built with 1/4 in thick steel, the DAMO PRO offers that extra protection, so you don’t have to worry about forklift damage occurring again.
The DAMO PRO was designed and patented as a repair kit for the front and/or back legs of a frame in a pallet rack system. When damage occurs, we measure the height of the damage, cut above it, and install the custom-made repair kit as a bolted-on replacement solution, which permits a quick and safe installation. No unloading of pallets is required in most situations. And no on-site welding or hot permit is required, as the unit arrives ready to be installed, with all the necessary hardware.
Hilti screw-type anchors are always included in our rack repair kits. Additional DAMO BRACES may also be included with the repair kit to replicate the original configuration and brace pattern of the pallet racking systems. A deflection plate can be added at the base of the frame when front and back units are installed at the same time; this further protects the upright frame at floor level.
Front & Back Columns (DBRS)
This option permanently repairs and protects the front and rear columns at once.
Cantilevered / Slanted (CAN)
This option repairs and protects existing cantilevered racking systems.
When faced with damaged racking components, one can choose to repair them with dedicated repair units or replace them with original OEM parts. Rack repair products offer several advantages that need to be considered:
Our repair products are permanent, robust, and come with a warranty that provides full peace of mind. Replacing with OEM parts means your uprights remain vulnerable to impact and may get damaged again and again.
Lead time for Damotech products is short. Units are ready to ship in four weeks. That's much faster than ordering OEM parts which can take weeks to arrive.
The installation process is quick and easy, and unloading is usually not necessary, thanks to the Easy Lift. No need to dismantle and reattach beams, which means less downtime. It's more cost effective and has less impact on your day to day operations.
All these reasons make our repair products a smarter solution and a better long-term investment.

Our rack repair solutions are designed to respect the specifications of your original racking system. They restore the original load capacity while extending their lifespan — safely and permanently.
Our experts will visit your warehouse, take all the necessary measurements and specify the right product for each reported deficiency.
Our units are made-to-measure for your specific needs. No matter the dimensions, finish (paint color, galvanization), type of foot plate (seismic), or rack configuration, we'll custom build the units to your exact requirements.
Because we strive to offer consistent installations regardless of location, all our installers are trained and certified by our most experienced engineers. A standard repair kit can be installed by our certified installers in under an hour.
During installation, the damaged upright frame is secured, slightly lifted and supported by our proprietary lifting device. The rack damage is removed, and the rack repair solution is bolted to the rack.
Once installed, the pallet rack repair kit protects the storage system from reoccurring damage, prevents costly downtime, labor expenses, and safety hazards due to repeated damage to warehouse racks. This proven solution has been installed in warehouses all over North America for over 20 years.

We aim to have your made-to-measure repair units ready to ship in about four weeks.
At Damotech, we stand behind our products. The DAMO PRO comes with a LIFETIME WARRANTY against impact. This means that once installed, if your unit were to get significantly damaged, we would simply replace it, no questions asked.
As racks get damaged, they may lose some capacity and compromise the rest of the system. We recommended you call Damotech so we can arrange for one of our experts to survey the damage and offer a solution.
Yes. Although the cost of an upright replacement and a repair kit are similar, once the values of time, safety, ease of installation and built-in prevention are taken into account, the value proposition of a DAMO PRO becomes very clear. Plus, the replacement of an upright is ripe for being damaged again as soon as it is installed. By comparison, our permanent repair kits come with a lifetime warranty. Install it and forget it!
One of the great advantages to using Damotech is the ease of install. Damotech has developed a patented installation method, using a dedicated lifting device that allows the repairs to take place with minimal to no unloading of your racks. Imagine the convenience of not having to move merchandise from aisle to aisle just to clear some bays, as you would do when doing an upright replacement. Using the DAMO EASY LIFT during installation is a huge time saver, which helps improve productivity by minimizing downtime.
By building a new state-of-the-art facility and optimizing our production, we've significantly improved our lead time. We aim to have your custom unit ready to ship in about four weeks.
Yes, our repair solutions do not alter the load capacity of your racks. They respect the original configuration of the rack and maintain, if not exceed its original load capacity. If you have doubts, talk to one of our engineers or experts.
Over the last 30 years, Damotech has developed the expertise to repair any type of rack, even racks that are no longer manufactured. We have yet to meet a type of pallet rack that has left us stumped but we are always ready for the challenge!
