Seismic Racks — Code Compliance


Seismic Racks & Code Compliance

Lowell LSER Stand-Alone Floor Racks and LSGR Gangable Floor Racks meet both CATEGORY 1 (Anchorage) and CATEGORY 2 (Anchorage and Rack) requirements. P.E. certified documentation is shipped with each qualifying rack and can also be downloaded for review prior to shipping. This third-party certification may preclude the necessity of having some additional testing performed on-site; check with the local Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) for information.

Note: Installations in Essential Facilities (e.g. police stations, fire stations, hospitals, etc.) may require racks to include IBC Qualifier Braces, which can be ordered as an option. If bracing is required, the braces must be factory-mounted and remain in the installed position.
