Pallet Rack and Fall Protection Installation

The Boeing Company | Huntington Beach, CA

PALLET RACK AND FALL PROTECTION INSTALLATION

Project Overview:

Conveyor & Storage Solutions was tasked with designing and installing a warehouse refit at Boeing’s C13 Quick Response Center in Huntington Beach, CA. In addition to installing additional selective pallet rack for equipment and material storage, C&SS retrofitted several existing sets of racking with new fall protection steel mesh.

CUSTOMER DESCRIPTION

American Multinational Aerospace Manufacturer and Defense Contractor

The Boeing Company, commonly known as Boeing, is an American multinational corporation that designs, manufactures, and sells airplanes, rotorcraft, rockets, satellites, telecommunications equipment, and missiles worldwide. The company also provides leasing and product support services. Boeing is among the largest global aerospace manufacturers; it is the second-largest defense contractor in the world based on 2018 revenue and is the largest exporter in the United States by dollar value. Boeing stock is included in the Dow Jones Industrial Average. It was founded by William Boeing in Seattle, Washington on July 15, 1916.

PROJECT SCOPE OF WORK

Optimized Available Warehouse Floorspace by Augmenting Vertical Storage Capability

Boeing’s C-17 Quick Response Center, also known as C13, was established in April 2002 to provide emergent support to the C-17 Globemaster program by supplying critical parts for production, retrofits and urgent requirements in the field. It provides integrated, efficient fabrication operations including capabilities from precision machining to sheet metal work to materials processing, all in one facility.

Late in 2019 Boeing decided to upgrade their facility with a new CNC mill, requiring ample floor space. As the necessary space was occupied by a swathe of equipment and material, C&SS was contracted to design and install a selective racking system to maximize storage and accessibility and clear room for the new machinery. In addition to pallet rack, all existing pallet rack was retrofit with fall protection steel mesh. This modification goes a long way towards eliminating any accidents involving material or equipment being displaced and falling from a pallet position, which has the potential to cause serious workplace injury.
