This European Standard specifies the structural design requirements applicable to all types of adjustable pallet racking systems fabricated from steel members, intended for storage of unit loads and subject to seismic actions.
This European Standard gives also guidelines for the design of clad rack buildings in seismic zones, where requirements are not covered in the EN 1998 series.
This European Standard does not cover other generic types of storage structures. Specifically, this European Standard does not apply to mobile storage systems, drive-in, drive-through and cantilever racks or static steel shelving systems.
This European Standard does not apply to the design of seismic isolated racking structures.
