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.

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.

Call us now on 0800 612 3210 or send us an 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. 

used design pallet racking

Used Dexion pallet racking for sale


Used Dexion pallet racking is probably the thing that we are asked for most often. However, Dexion is just one of many used warehouse racking systems that we have in stock in a wide range of sizes and duties (and even Dexion has 2 different racking systems- Dexion Speedlock and Dexion P90). We also have Apex, Redirack, PSS and Link 51 pallet racking, and often some of the less common warehouse storage systems such as Stow, Mecalux and Esmena.

Used industrial racking is usually supplied for pallet storage, but adding wire mesh or timber decking can easily make it suitable for heavy duty hand loaded shelving. We can also supply multiple runs of back to back racking to be used as carpet racking or adjust the depth and height of the frames to create bays of tyre racking. 

We can deliver to any UK mainland address, so if you are in Motherwell, Crewe, Canterbury or Newport we can get you what you want, quickly and at a great price.

Whether you need used Dexion pallet racking,  industrial racking or warehouse shelving you need, please give us a call now on 0800 612 3210 or send us a brief description on an enquiry form and we will reply to you quickly.
