That wouldn't even scratch the surface would it Dave?

you want a bad day, I wake up with my CAD computer giving me a fucking classpnp boot error and getting stuck on windows boot. I fuck with it for a while, get a old IDE drive, and smoke shoots out of the fucking thing and smells up my room. Then it won't book from the SATA drive I later dug up. Then I can't get anything to boot on it.

Then I decide to reset the bios a few times and it works again, but the mouse is not working. Then it suddenly works. I am waiting in fear I hope I can get a few more years out of it.  :scared:

Now you know why they suggest the forklift bollards in warehousing. Portnet solution is to core into the floor at each pillar on each side a 110mm hole through to the ground underneath and place in there a 2m length of old rail, and fill the hole with a high strength cement mix, and across the top weld another piece of rail. It does help a little.
He did not hit any pillar.  He struck the top beam of the second layer stack, and that layer caved in.

Indeed.

Strength of many structures relies on the geometry distributing the load.  Mess up the geometry and all of a sudden the load is focussed at a point.  Just brushing that front beam would be enough.  A few tonne of forklift on one side and a few tonne of goods on the other - and that beam had no chance.

Once buckled, it had no ability to support the load, so it was pushed down at that point and since the ends are tied into the uprights - the uprights were pulled inwards, destroying their ability to support the goods.

If the racking was just a series of independent sets running down the aisle, then one could expect only one set of racking would collapse - but it would seem these were all linked together, so the whole aisle would be affected.

This, in itself, would indicate the racking was overloaded - but (to me) the real indicator of this is that other aisles collapsed as the result of things tumbling into them.

So, while the forklift operator did make a mistake, the whole place was a house of cards - just waiting ......

There are 3 kinds of people in this world, those who can count and those who can not.
