Product Safety Information
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
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
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
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.
Molding End Trim with S-Style Shelves to protect customers and
store personnel from accidental contact with exposed shelf
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.
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).
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.
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.
