This is giving me heartburn. A clothing manufacturing company wants to store group IV commodities.
16.1.3 Movable Racks. Rack storage in movable racks shall be protected in the same manner as multiple-row racks.
188.8.131.52 Protection Criteria for Rack Storage of Class I Through Class IV Commodities Stored Up to 12 ft in Height.
184.108.40.206.1 The protection criteria for storage up to and including 12 ft shall be the same as miscellaneous storage from Chapter 13.
The definition of Compact Storage Module does not specify passive protection to qualify as such.
My question is: “Is it correct to treat this rack configuration as moveable racks?”
