warehouse storage system

Warehouse storage system- can I add to what I have?


Adding to your warehouse storage system can appear to be a complicated task if it’s something you haven’t looked into before, but we have years of experience and are always happy to help you to find the right pallet racking components for your needs. There are many different manufacturers of industrial racking and none of them are compatible with each other, so it important that you know what you have before you can think about adding to it.

You can see images of the most popular warehouse racking systems on our Identify My Racking page, or you can send us a photo of your racking and we will let you know what you have. Dexion, Link 51, PSS and Apex are some of the leading industrial racking manufacturers but there are many others that we have in stock.

We can also help you with the layout, dimensions and load capacities of your racking, our friendly and helpful team can work from your plans or arrange a site visit if required. Accessories such as column guards, rack end barriers, pallet support bars and load notices are all important components of your warehouse storage system and we can advise you on what you might need to complete you installation.

If you are looking for hand loaded storage, we have huge stocks of longspan shelving in a wide variety of sizes, so we can also help you to plan a layout that best suits your specific requirements.

We have deliveries leaving our warehouse every day, so whether you are in Rotherham, Blackburn, Norwich or Southampton we will get your used warehouse racking order to you quickly and in great condition.

Call us now on 0800 612 3210 to discuss your racking needs, or send us an enquiry form and we will reply to you quickly.

warehouse racking system

Warehouse racking system – what else do I need?


If you are looking to buy a warehouse racking system, you would start by working out how many upright frames and horizontal beams you need, and what size they need to be. But once you have a layout planned, you can broaden your search to other components that will ensure that your industrial racking is safe, secure and fit for purpose.

All of our pallet racking beams are supplied with 2 beam locks as standard, because they are important in helping to prevent the beams from being accidentally dislodged by your forklift. If you have beams without locking pins, we can supply as many as you need for all leading manufacturers.

Forklift trucks can also cause expensive and potentially dangerous damage to your racking uprights, so it is important to protect them. Column guards and rack end barriers are a relatively inexpensive way to avoid damage and are easy to install. All of our barriers and guards are supplied with fixing bolts.

If your pallets need extra support, or you want to use your warehouse racking system for hand loaded storage, we have large stocks of timber and wire mesh decking in stock to suit standard pallet racking sizes. Pallet support bars can also be used to help prevent your pallets from sagging.

All of our pallet racking accessories are compatible with leading manufacturers such as Dexion, Apex, PSS, Link 51 etc. If you aren’t sure what you need, or would like to discuss your options, our friendly and experienced team are here to help you. Click on the live chat option during office hours for instant answers, or give us a call on 0800 612 3210. Alternatively, you can send us an enquiry form and we will respond to you quickly.

Our deliveries cover the whole of the UK mainland, so whether you are in Blackpool, York, Bath or Maidstone, we can get you what you need, quickly and at a great price.

buy used industrial racking

We buy used industrial racking


We are always looking to buy used industrial racking in medium to large parcels and in very good condition. Leading manufacturers such as Dexion, PSS, Apex and Link 51 are particularly of interest, but we will consider all other makes (Hilo, Esmena, Stow, Mecalux etc.) if the quantity and quality is right. We also want to hear about heavy duty shelving, such as longspan, and large amounts of bolted shelving if it is in great condition.

If you have warehouse racking that you no longer need or use, please give us a call with as many details as you have, such as the sizes and quantities of upright frames and horizontal beams, whereabouts in the UK it is and whether or not you would need us to take it down and/or transport it. We may also take any pallet support bars, timber or wire mesh decking, column guards or rack end barriers as part of the deal.

Whether you are in Wakefield, Southport, Croydon or Hereford, call us now on 0800 612 3210, or use the enquiry form to send us a message and we will get back to you quickly. Almost every week we buy used industrial racking and yours could be our next purchase.

warehouse storage solutions

Warehouse storage solutions are more than just pallet racking


When you think about warehouse storage solutions, pallet racking might be the first thing that springs to mind. Warehouse racking, particularly used pallet racking, is our speciality and the biggest part of our business, but there are many other ways to store your stock that we can help you with.

For non-palletised items, we can supply longspan shelving, a heavy duty system that works in much the same way as pallet racking, with upright frames and horizontal beams. Longspan beams have a z profile (rather than the box section of racking beams), so that a chipboard deck will sit securely between them, and with support bars under the chipboard they can take well in excess of 500kg per shelf for almost all beam sizes. This robust and versatile system is available in a wide range of sizes, so we can help you find the best layout to make full use of the space you have for storage of your stock.

Cantilever racking provides an effective way to store long materials such as pipes, rods, structural sections, profiles, timber and flat sheets such as  chipboard. We offer off the shelf solutions for single or double-sided cantilever storage for long but lightweight items. It is easy to assemble, simple, stable and safe. For heavy loads, we can provide high strength bespoke solutions including systems suitable for indoor and outdoor use.

You may also be looking for storage options for your employees to keep their personal items safe. We have a huge range of lockers that we can supply in many different sizes, colours and for a different working environments.

Whatever you warehouse storage requirements are, we can help you to find the best solution for your business. Call us now on 0800 612 3210 to discuss you options or to place an order. Alternatively, you can send us an enquiry form and we will reply to you quickly. All our warehouse storage solutions are available for delivery to any UK mainland address, so whether you are in Leeds, Worcester, Liverpool or Brighton we can supply you with what you need.

warehouse storage guide

Warehouse storage guide to help you get exactly what you need


Customers often come to us asking for a warehouse storage guide for their business, because they don’t know what their options are or how to describe what they are looking for. We have many years of experience in pallet racking and warehouse shelving and so we will happily spend as much time as you need to help you to make sure you get the right storage system for your stock.

These tips will help you to give us the information we need in order to give you the best quote, at the best price, for your warehouse racking requirements:

  • Measure the area where the racking will go as accurately as you can (twice!) in millimetres. We will try to fit as much storage racking as we can into the dimensions you give us, so it’s really important that it is measured correctly.
  • If you are storing pallets, we need to know what type. UK pallets are 1200mm x 1000mm and Euro pallets are 1200mm x 800mm (there are also many other non-standard pallet sizes). The maximum height and weight of each pallet will also help us supply the right racking for you.
  • If you are adding to pallet racking that you already have, we need to know what type it is. There are many different manufacturers of industrial racking (Dexion, Link 51, Apex, PSS and Redirack are among the most common) and none of them are compatible with each other. If you aren’t sure what you have, our Identify My Racking page might help, or you can send us a photo and we will be able to identify it.
  • All of our upright frames are supplied assembled and with footplates attached, beam locks are supplied with all horizontal beams. Our used racking is checked to SEMA specifications prior to dispatch.
  • Let us know if you need other materials with your pallet racking. We have Timber and wire mesh decking, column guards, pallet support bars and rack end barriers in stock. If you aren’t sure whether you need them, we can talk you through all of the benefits and points to consider before ordering.
  • We can deliver to any UK mainland address. In the next week we have orders going to Leeds, Crewe, Hull and Kent, so wherever you are we will give you a great delivered price. If you would prefer to collect your order, please let us know 

Call us now on 0800 612 3210 to place an order or for a warehouse storage guide for a member of the team. Alternatively, you can send us your details on an enquiry form and we will reply to you quickly.
