Install all shelving (or racks) according to installation instructions and use components only as instructed. Shelving and components should only be installed or rearranged by trained personnel who have read and understand the instructions and warnings. Additional copies of the installation instructions are available upon request.
Local codes and regulations concerning building, fire, sanitation, or seismic requirements may apply to some installations. Shelving in high -risk seismic zones may need to be "certified" by a structural engineer licensed in the state where the installation is located. Local authorities should be consulted in advance. Needed modifications must be quoted before the order is entered. It is the responsibility of the owner of the fixtures to check with local building authorities to determine what codes or regulations, if any, apply and install the shelving in compliance with any such requirements.
When installing or rearranging shelving (or racks), never move assembled shelving.
Do not combine Lozier products with non-Lozier products.
Never used damaged parts. Damaged parts may cause shelving (or racks) to be structurally unsafe or create exposure to sharp or pointed edges. If parts were damaged in shipping, do not use and contact your Lozier Customer Service Representative. If parts are damaged after shipment, discontinue use immediately and order replacement parts.
Do not exceed Allowable Load Limits (see installation instructions and relevant catalog pages). Make sure you calculate the unbalanced load as shown in the Display Shelving Installation Instructions. Exceeding allowable loads may cause the shelving (or racks) to tip over or collapse.
Base fronts, either open or closed, are required on shelving for structural integrity and stability. Use of shelving without base fronts may cause the shelving to collapse. Caution: Use of any shelving without Closed Base Fronts (CBF) may allow material handling or floor cleaning equipment to collide with the base brackets causing the shelving to be knocked out of alignment or collapse.
All components which require trim such as Uprights (U) and Base Brackets (BB) must be installed with the trim pieces. Untrimmed parts may have unfinished edges that must be covered by trim to avoid exposure to store personnel or customers.
Use Molding End Trim with S-Style Shelves to protect customers and store personnel from accidental contact with exposed shelf corners.
Do not hang Peg Hooks, Shelves or other accessories on the back side of a Wall Section or any section without Base Brackets. Wall Sections do not have Base Brackets (BB) on the back side to provide support, and use of the back side to display merchandise may cause the section to tip over.
To avoid store personnel or customers accidentally coming in contact with display fixtures, never allow any Shelf, Peg Hook, or other display to protrude into an aisle or to extend beyond the edge of the Base Deck or End Deck (if used).
All End Merchandising Panels intended for use with Shelved or accessories must include End Decks or other floor display to direct people away from the shelves or displays above the End Deck or other floor display.
Do not lean tall or heavy items against shelving (or racks) unless shelving is anchored to a suitable building wall, to the floor, or otherwise braced to prevent overturning. The weight and force of leaning items on unanchored or un-braced shelving may cause the shelving to overturn or collapse.
Shelving (or racks) that are leaning or bending when loaded may indicate a dangerous overload or impending collapse. Loads should be immediately reduced, and the cause for this condition should be corrected, before reloading. refer to appropriate installation instructions to assure shelving (or racks) are properly assembled, replace any damaged components or parts, and do not exceed recommended maximum loads or engage in any other unsafe use of the shelving (or racks).
Provide safe access to all levels of storage and display shelving in accordance with applicable OSHA regulations. Never allow anyone to climb, walk, or stand on shelving (or racks). These shelves were not designed to withstand the extra weight and impact of climbing, walking, or standing and the added weight and impact of such actions may cause the fixture to collapse.
Never alter, modify or otherwise structurally change the shelving (or racks) or any of its component parts. Modification or alteration may cause the shelving (or racks) or component part to become structurally unsafe resulting in tipping, collapse or other failure of the fixture.
