The MARC (Maintenance and Retrieval Cart) is the safe and cost-effective solution for preventing unsafe entry into pallet rack systems. It is a self-propelled system capable of travelling the full distance of the rack system providing operators with an engineered safe zone at any height and depth and enabling them to perform a variety of tasks such as inspection, repairs and maintenance. If your operation includes the use of high density racking for storage, how are you currently handling the need to clear obstructions, perform inspections and conduct regular maintenance within those racks? You should be aware that rack systems are not designed for operator access, and aerial platforms are not engineered for lateral loads. The MARC creates a movable safe zone. The MARC is available in a number of configurations and can be customized to meet your specified needs in any application including pallet flow, push back, double deep and more.

A push back rack system has a great many benefits, and is overall a maximally efficient system, but it can present its challenges. For example, when there is a jam, no matter the cause, the result is out-of-service pallet positions. As our case study demonstrates, these jams can often create extremely dangerous situations for operators. The solution for this need to perform tasks within a push back racking structure is The MARC - an engineered anchor system that allows operators to move within the racks safely. No more man-handling spilled product or climbing among the racks without an approved anchor point. Watch this video to see The MARC in action!:

IRONguard is passionate about protecting people and profits through safety. Are you aware that the use of forklift safety cages is contrary to safe practices for accessing high density racking structures? Moreover, racking systems themselves are not designed for operator access. Nevertheless, there are many instances when it is necessary for your staff to perform tasks at height (and at depth within racks, as well) such as; man-handling stuck pallets or spilled product to clear jams, servicing the rack structure and other components at height, inspecting the structure and the products it contains, and more. All of these tasks are extremely dangerous, to both the operator performing the task and those on the ground, without benefit of an engineered anchor point, among other safety measures. The MARC is the engineered safe zone that eliminates unsafe entry into racking systems. Talk to us today about a product demonstration. Watch this video to see The MARC in action!:

How do you prevent unsafe climbing in high density rack systems? The MARC (Maintenance and Retrieval Cart) is loaded using standard material handling equipment and then inserts and locates into the rack system easily using integrated alignment guides. The MARC is an engineered 'safe zone' to access deep inside rack systems at height. The MARC creates safe access to spilled product, stuck pallets or push back trays.
