Why Was the Australian Standard for Steel Storage Racks Updated?

This Standard was prepared by the Standards (AS4084-2012) Australia Committee BD-062, Steel Storage Racking, to supersede AS 4084—1993, Steel storage racking.

“The objective of this Standard is to provide designers of steel storage racking with specifications for hot-rolled and cold-formed steel structural members used for action carrying purposes.

“The design provisions of the Standard are based on the limit states method and are intended to supplement AS 4100 and AS/NZS 4600.”
