Kiwi seis­mic ex­perts solve stor­age earth­quake co­nun­drum

Can­ter­bury seis­mic ex­perts Vaico, to­gether with stor­age so­lu­tions spe­cial­ists Dex­ion NZ, have found the so­lu­tion to pro­tect New Zealand work­ers and stored goods in ma­jor earth­quakes.

The Orchardist - - What’s New -

The new Vaico PRS (Pal­let Re­strain­ing Sys­tem) is an amaz­ingly sim­ple and cost-ef­fec­tive invention that helps to keep pal­lets and goods in place dur­ing seis­mic events.

The Christchurch earth­quakes and more re­cent seis­mic events in the Kaik­oura and Welling­ton re­gions have con­fronted ev­ery man­u­fac­turer, stor­age op­er­a­tor or trans­port com­pany with dan­gers of work­ing in el­e­vated stor­age fa­cil­i­ties.

This glob­ally patented invention has al­ready been hailed as an es­sen­tial part of any rack­ing or stor­age fa­cil­ity that takes the health and safety of their staff se­ri­ously.

The Vaico PRS ac­ti­vates im­me­di­ately in a seis­mic event to drop in front of the pal­lets, lock them in and helps keep the goods and the work­force safe. “Drop, Lock & Safe.”

It is the only seis­mic re­straint de­vice that can be retro­fit­ted on any ex­ist­ing fa­cil­ity with­out chang­ing the rack­ing con­fig­u­ra­tion.

Dex­ion,Vaico’s ex­clu­sive sup­plier and in­staller in New Zealand, Aus­tralia and Asia, can in­stall the PRS to a rack in min­utes with min­i­mal in­ter­fer­ence to the ware­house op­er­a­tions. Once in­stalled, the PRS is neatly tucked away and does not get in the way of any han­dling of goods.

“Be­ing man­u­fac­tured in Christchurch, the price point of the PRS does not only make it the smartest, but also the most cost-ef­fec­tive so­lu­tion to pro­tect stor­age fa­cil­i­ties from seis­mic events,” says Kiwi in­ven­tor and Vaico di­rec­tor Ash­ton How.
