warehouse platform steps

Warehouse platform steps for your business


Our extensive range of warehouse platform steps are designed for a wide range of office, archive, factory and warehouse storage environments. They are robust, versatile and all models are designed and built in the UK. From the small and manoeuvrable tilt and move steps to the 3750mm high, 15 tread industrial safety steps we can find the right access solution for your workplace.

Standard mobile warehouse safety steps are supplied with 2 handrails but the steps can be adapted to have a single handrail if required. We can also include extras such as platform extensions, platform exits and bottom gates on request.

Narrow aisle steps are useful when space is tight, but we can also do extra wide steps if large items need to be carried and stored. Our knockdown steps can be folded away and the office storeroom steps are smaller and lighter for ease of movement.

Our heavy duty truck dock platforms and access platforms are suitable for all types of loading and unloading.  The angle of the steps is 45 degrees to ensure the user can safely descend the platform facing forwards.  The platform area is large and has chained exits for quick release during loading/unloading.  It has a sturdy box section base and strengthened axle giving it a safe working load (SWL) of 500kg! Modifications are possible including platform extensions and gate adjustments, just ask us for details.  

All our access products are available in a wide range of sizes and colours and can be delivered to almost anywhere in the UK mainland. So whether you are in Bradford, Bristol, Liverpool or Glasgow we can supply you with the right product for your working environment.

pallet racking bay

What is a pallet racking bay?


A pallet racking bay is two upright frames joined together with pairs of horizontal beams to create levels on which pallets can be stored. You should always have runs of at least two bays joined together, with at least two beam levels in each bay, for stability and for the manufacturer’s stated load capacities to be valid.

Upright frames are made up of two legs braced together and with footplates attached. Standard depths are 900mm and 1100mm and they can be any height from two metres to fifteen metres (and beyond). Horizontal beams start from 950mm long and are available in a wide variety of sizes, sometimes over 4000mm in length. 2700mm is the most common warehouse racking beam length, but 1350mm, 2250mm and 3300mm are also widely used. The load capacity of the beams ranges from a few hundred kilos to at least three tonnes for a uniformly distributed load (UDL). 

If you know the exact sizes and quantities of used pallet racking that you need, we can provide you with a low price quote quickly and without obligation. There are many different manufacturers of warehouse storage equipment, such as Dexion, Link 51, Apex, Redirack and PSS, and none of them are compatible with each other. If you are adding to your existing industrial racking, please let us know what you currently have, or send us a photo and we will find suitable materials to add to it.

We can deliver to any UK mainland address and have vehicles going to all parts of the UK every week. So whether you are in Bradford, Crewe, Maidstone, Middlesbrough or anywhere between, we can give you a great delivered price on a pallet racking bay or a full distribution centre of used Dexion racking.

We end this year with fantastic stocks of all our warehouse storage equipment.

used storage equipment

New and used storage equipment for 2021


As the Christmas break rapidly approaches, many of us will be planning for the new year and this may include the purchase of new or used storage equipment for your warehouse space. We can help you with every step of the process, from planning a layout to installation of the pallet racking or hand loaded shelving.

If you aren’t sure how to best make use of the warehouse storage space you have available, our team will be happy to help you design a layout that suits your pallet sizes, vehicle access and methods of working. We can even incorporate any existing warehouse racking you have and find compatible materials to add to it. If you aren’t sure what type of racking you already have, please check our “identify my racking” page, or send us some photos and we will let you know what you have. Remember, many people refer to Dexion racking for all pallet racking, but this is just one manufacturer of at least twenty (Link 51 Apex, PSS, Redirack etc.) and almost all of them aren’t compatible with each other.

Once we know what you need, we will send you a low priced quote for all materials. If you need other items, such as column guards, pallet support bars, timber or wire mesh decking, let us know and we can include these on the quote.

We deliver orders to any UK mainland address, so whether you are in Bradford, Norwich, Paisley or Dorset we can get your new or used storage equipment to you quickly.

Finally, if you need someone to install your industrial racking or longspan shelving, our fully qualified teams will do a fantastic job for you. 

Call us now on 0800 612 3210 to discuss your options or to start planning your warehouse racking order. Alternatively, send us a message on the enquiry form and we will reply to you quickly.

 

Dexion racking for sale

Dexion racking for sale at the best prices


We always have quality used Dexion racking for sale at the very best prices. Whether you need a few beam locks, a replacement upright, a couple of bays of used pallet racking to fill a gap in your storeroom or a full warehouse of pallet storage, we can find the right product for you.

Dexion pallet racking comes in a wide variety of sizes, so if you are adding to your existing warehouse racking, it is important to make sure that you get compatible materials. Unlike many other racking systems, you will still find a lot of Dexion in imperial sizes, so beams at 1372mm (4ft 6in), 2667mm (8ft 9in) and 3048mm (10ft), as well as standard metric sizes, are often found on the used market. The measurement used to describe a beam’s size is the clear entry- the space between the upright frames when beams are in place, so please check carefully before placing an order.

Upright frames may also differ from standard 900mm and 1100mm depths, with 914mm (3ft) and 1067mm (3ft 6in) often used for Dexion frames, so again please confirm the required size. We can cut or splice frames to almost any size, so please let us know the exact height you need and we will quote accordingly.

Dexion of often used as a generic term for pallet racking, when in fact there are many different manufacturers available and almost none of them are compatible with each other. Therefore it is important that we know what racking system you have if you are looking to add to it. You can see many of the leading industrial racking makes on our identify my racking page, or send us photos of what you have and we will be able to let you know the manufacturer. Link 51, Apex, Redirack and PSS are all very common makes, but we can usually find whatever type of warehouse racking you need.

Call us now on 0800 612 3210 and we will be happy to help you find the pallet racking you need. Alternatively, you can send us an enquiry form, which we will reply to quickly, or use the Live Chat option during office hours.

We have deliveries going to all parts of the UK mainland every week, with space still available on wagons going to Bradford, Durham, Crewe and Bournemouth.
