heavy duty warehouse shelving

Heavy duty warehouse shelving


Heavy duty warehouse shelving, or longspan shelving as it is often known, is a scaled down version of pallet racking used for storing non-palletised goods. It has the upright frames and horizontal beams of pallet racking, but the beams are a z-profile to support a chipboard shelf.

We have large quantities of our QuickSpan shelving system in stock, available for fast dispatch in a wide range of sizes.

The upright frames are 2000mm to 5000mm and can be braced at depths from 400mm to 1200mm. All frames are supplied assembled, with footplates attached and including fixing bolts and shims.

Beams come in sizes from 950mm to 2700mm and are supplied with beam locks. We have chipboard decks and support bars to suit all sizes of shelving. Dropover steel shelves are also available for this shelving system.

The beam height can be adjusted every 50mm on the frames and the load capacity is up to 1075kg UDL per shelf. This makes for a very versatile and fully adjustable hand loaded shelving system suitable for all warehouse and industrial environments. We can help you plan a layout that makes the best use of the space that you have available and can quickly provide you with a quote and lead time.

We have longspan shelving orders scheduled for delivery to Bradford, Wrexham, Durham and Bournemouth, so wherever you are in the UK, we are ready to supply you with the storage system that you need.

Shelving & Racking Ltd

Shelving & Racking Ltd wish you a Merry Christmas!


Shelving & Racking Ltd would like to wish all of our customers and suppliers a very Merry  Christmas and a happy, successful 2022.

We’re happy to have got through another challenging year unscathed, with used pallet racking once again proving to be our most successful range of products. Sales of Dexion, Apex, Link 51, Redirack and PSS have been strong and the stock in our warehouse suggests that we are well set up for the New Year.

Our longspan shelving range continues to be very popular and is a strong versatile system, suitable for all environments where a heavy duty shelving system is required.

We have seen fantastic growth in the sales of warehouse steps, access platforms and truck docks, which are suitable for almost any picking area, hand loaded storage or loading environment.

2021 has seen us install warehouse racking systems right across the UK. Our highly experienced and helpful teams have installed a few bays of industrial racking in Huddersfield, cantilever racking in Kidderminster, used pallet racking in Grimsby, hand loaded shelving in Milton Keynes, and that’s just in the last couple of weeks!

Shelving & Racking Ltd look forward to helping our many returning customers in 2022 as well as offering the best possible service to all the new customers who find us in new year. Call us on 0800 612 3210 or send us an enquiry and we will reply to you quickly.

used dexion racking

Used Dexion racking- the blue and orange type


Used Dexion racking is something we are often asked for and it’s not always what the customer actually needs. In the same way that Hoover, Sellotape or Velcro are used to describe a wide variety of products from many different manufacturers, so Dexion is just one of twenty or more types of pallet racking currently available in the UK. 

Unfortunately, asking for the blue and orange racking doesn’t narrow it down a lot, as blue frames and orange beams are common to a number of warehouse racking systems and most can be supplied in a variety of colours on request.

If you need industrial racking to replace components or to add to your existing racking, then you need to be sure that you get compatible parts. Many pallet racking manufacturers stamp their name on the uprights (Dexion, Apex, Redirack, Link 51 etc), but if you can’t see it on your racking there are other ways to make sure you order the correct pallet racking system.

Take a look at the identify my racking page on our website to see many of the leading pallet racking manufacturers. The shape of the holes in the frames are usually a good way to confirm the manufacturer. If you still aren’t sure, please send us a clear, close up photo (like those on our identifying page) of your racking and we should be able to let you know what you have.

From there we can check stock for suitable materials and then send you a quote with a great delivered price. We cover the whole of the UK mainland, so whether you are in Wakefield, Hull, Oxford or Redditch we will do all we can to get you the racking you need, whether it be used Dexion racking or any other!

Call us now on 0800 612 3210 or send us an enquiry form (you can include a photo of your pallet racking) and we will reply to you quickly.

cantilever racking systems

Cantilever racking systems


Cantilever racking systems are a strong, versatile and cost effective way to store long products or non-standard sizes. They are a great way to maximise your warehouse storage capacity, making use of the available height and allowing you to store items of varying sizes in the same area.

We have recently added some new cantilever racking bays to our website shop, which you can see here. These simple starter and extension bays are available in as little as 5 working days, with many options available to suit your specific needs.

If you need a larger cantilever system, we can supply you with bespoke racking that suits your individual requirements. The uprights can be single or double sided and up to 10 metres high. The bracing which joins the uprights together can be tailored to the exact distance required for the length of the items that you will be storing. Horizontal load supporting arms are then added to the uprights, on which you will place your products. These can be up to 2500mm in length and will be designed to take the required load capacity. The height of the arms can be adjusted according to the height required for each storage level.

This type of warehouse storage equipment is particularly useful for the following products:

  • Timber
  • Pipes, bars and tubes
  • Sheet materials
  • Worktops and laminates
  • Extrusions
  • Lintels
  • Non-standard pallets

Our bespoke cantilever racking can be galvanised for outdoor use and canopies or cladding can be added to help protect your stock from the weather. 

So if you have large products to store and pallet racking doesn’t suit the dimensions, we can help you to create a warehouse racking system which will enable you to make the most of the space you have available. We have recently supplied cantilever racking to customers in Leeds, Liverpool, Nottingham and Hampshire, so wherever you are in the UK we can find the right industrial racking solution for your business.

Call us now on 0800 612 3210 if you are looking for cantilever racking systems or you think they might help with your warehouse storage and you need some guidance on the options available. Alternatively you can send us a message on the enquiry form and we will reply to you quickly.

warehouse safety steps

Warehouse safety steps for hand loaded storage & picking areas


Mobile warehouse safety steps can be an invaluable asset if you are trying to make the most of the height available in your picking area or hand loaded storage. We have a wide range of options available to suit any warehouse storage environment and all of them can be adapted to the specific requirements of your business.

All of our safety steps come with two handrails as standard and have a safe working load of 300kg. They are ergonomically designed, strong and easy to manoeuvre.

The standard mobile safety step starts at 2 treads, with a working platform height of 500mm and goes up to a 15 tread model which has a working height of 3750mm. The platform at the top is 550mm x 400mm, with an all round kick board and a hand rail 1000mm above the platform.

The narrow aisle option is just 590mm wide for the 2-4 tread options (630mm for the 5-8 tread), so if space is tight these might be the solution that you are looking for.

If you need more space for picking bulky items or carrying toolboxes then the extra wide steps may be what you are looking for. The treads and platform on this model are 700mm wide. And if you are carrying very heavy items, the heavy duty mobile safety steps have the same wide platform but also have a safe working load of 500kg.

Storage of warehouse steps can be an issue, in which case our knock down safety steps are a great option. Once located on your premises, these steps can be erected and taken down in minutes. Once assembled, they have the same specifications as our standard warehouse safety steps.

Smaller, lightweight storeroom steps and 2-4 tread tilt and move steps are ideal for smaller office or stockroom environments.

Hinged or chained gates can be added to your steps and the platform length can be extended, so whatever your bespoke requirements are, we can find the right step for your business. Our friendly, helpful team are happy to talk through all of the options with you, so you can feel confident of getting the right model. Call us now on 0800 612 3210 or send us an enquiry form and we will reply to you quickly.

We can delivery to any UK mainland address. Recent orders for steps have been dispatched to Harrogate, Manchester, Bristol and Watford, so wherever you are we can supply the safety steps that you need.
