warehouse racking system

Which warehouse racking system do I have?


Each and every warehouse racking system is different and almost all are incompatible with each other, so it is really important to get the right manufacturer if you want to add to or replace parts in your industrial racking.

We have an Identify My Racking page on the website which shows clearly the design of many leading pallet racking manufacturers. The shape of the holes in the upright frames and horizontal beams are the easiest way to check the type of racking you have. If you can’t see anything that matches your warehouse racking on the first page, click on the link in the text to see a more extensive list of less common pallet racking systems. If you aren’t sure, please send us a clear photo (similar to the ones on the Identify My Racking page) and we will do our best to let you know the make of pallet racking that you have.

We always have leading manufacturers such as Dexion, Link 51, Apex, Redirack and PSS in stock and in a wide range of sizes and duties. Currently we also have good stocks of Stow, AR and Jungheinrich, but whatever industrial racking you need please send us the details and we can usually supply suitable materials.

Cantilever racking

Cantilever racking systems to maximise your warehouse storage


Cantilever racking is a strong, versatile and cost effective way to store long products or non-standard sizes. It is 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 can supply you with a bespoke cantilever racking system 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 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 Hull, Bournemouth, Accrington and Newport, 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 or you think it 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.

heavy duty shelving system

Shelves have a load capacity of 430kg – 1075kg UDL, depending on the beam length, and we can supply both chipboard (with support bars) and steel shelves to suit.

who buys used pallet racking

Who buys used pallet racking?


The simple answer to “who buys used pallet racking?” is “we do!”, so if you have a medium to large quantity of warehouse racking in good condition then we are waiting for your call. We are always interested in good quality industrial racking from leading manufacturers such as Dexion, Link 51, Apex, Redirack, PSS or Mecalux but we will consider all offers if the quantity and condition is right.

The first thing we will always ask is how many upright frames and horizontal beams do you have, and what sizes are they. If you can also send us some clear close up photos of the racking, so that we can see the condition and, if necessary, identify the manufacturer we should then be able to give you an indication of the value of your used racking. If you are working to a deadline, let us know when that is and we will do all we can to work within the timescale you give us. Finally, we would want to know if you need us to dismantle the warehouse storage equipment and arrange transport or will you deliver it to us.

We can also include timber decking, pallet support bars, column guards and anti-collapse mesh in any purchases, so if you have these please include them in the list of quantities and sizes.

We have recently bought used racking from warehouse clearances in Canterbury, York, Swansea and Bolton, so wherever you are in the UK we want to hear from you.

Please call us now on 0800 612 3210 if you are trying to find out who buys used pallet racking, or send us as many details as you can on the enquiry form and we will reply to you quickly. During office hours you can also use the live chat to talk to a member of the team.
