Your Partner for Inspection and Maintenance

Our trained SEMA inspectors can provide annual and weekly racking inspections, highlighting any damage and providing the corrective remedial action giving you the power to prevent issues before they arise, and act quickly when they do to avoid costly downtime. At PD Industrial, we recognise the critical importance of regular racking inspections and maintenance in maintaining a safe and efficient workspace. As your trusted partner, we offer comprehensive inspection and maintenance services designed to ensure the ongoing integrity and reliability of your racking systems. Our team of experienced professionals is adept at identifying potential issues before they become major problems, helping to maintain a safe environment for your employees and protect your inventory.

How it works:


Leading the way with digital inspections

Our inspections are carried out by trained SEMA inspectors using the UK’s only online portal Theia designed to offer real-time data for annual and weekly inspections. Once complete, digital copies of inspection reports are automatically emailed to you and stored in the cloud in your dashboard, so you can always access them from anywhere. Digital inspections allow you to quickly and easily identify what damage you have, organised using a traffic light system so you can prioritise remedial actions. You’ll automatically get a list of what materials are required to rectify the damaged areas, which you can share with your chosen contractor or send directly to PD Industrial’s repair team to get a quote.

Easy to understand inspection reports

Our reports contain everything you’ll need to identify damaged locations and what materials are required to rectify problems. Each of our inspectors takes all racking material specifications and stores them within Theia‘s database, allowing you to access the inspector’s experience at a click of a button. All reports generated on Theia are emailed automatically to your chosen contacts on completion and then stored on Theia’s database for as long as you want, making the days of sending PDF and paper reports a thing of the past. Our inspection reports include a comprehensive assessment of all components, highlighting any areas of concern, such as damage or wear and tear. We provide clear recommendations for any required repairs or adjustments, ensuring that you have all the information necessary to make informed decisions about your racking systems. These reports are designed to be clear and easy to understand, offering peace of mind that your storage systems are being monitored and maintained to the highest standards.

Repair work you can rely on

At PD Industrial, our reputation for carrying out racking repair work is second to none and we currently look after more of the UK’s largest companies than any of our competitors. We have a dedicated department for handling repairs, with a highly trained team with access to all UK and European manufacturers. Our fitters use Theia for receiving their daily work schedule which means we rely on secure, verifiable information only, unlike others who are still using manual paperwork. PD Industrial understands that damage to racking systems can occur despite the best precautions. Therefore, we offer prompt and efficient racking repair services to address any issues identified during inspections. Our repair services are designed to restore your racking systems to their full operational capacity with minimal disruption to your business.

Full traceability for complete peace of mind

Once repairs are done, Theia automatically emails a completion certificate for the completed job and then removes the damaged locations from the database. All repairs are stored in the Theia portal so you can view the completed repairs along with the date and time. Traceability is key in today’s working environments, which is why all of our repairs have the fitter’s sign and name of the fitter tagged to the job to say they have carried out the repair work. Upon the completion of every racking inspection and repair service, PD Industrial ensures that your racking systems are not only compliant with all safety standards but also fully optimised for your operational needs. Our commitment extends beyond the mere execution of tasks; we aim to provide you with the assurance and confidence that your racking infrastructure is in its best possible condition.
