What are High Pile Permits?

Most local and fire departments require high pile permits for goods stored above 12 feet. Applying for a permit does have some requirements. In seismic areas, an engineer needs to certify the plans. It may be necessary to have a sprinkler inspection done. The proposed pallet rack layout also needs to be drawn and CAD files generated.

The high pile permit process can take several weeks depending on the how big the project is. It is quite common for cities to request revisions. When changes occur, the process can get very complex. For this reason, it is best that you hire a professional.
