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 age) of you 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 Aberdeen, Southport, Lincoln or Plymouth 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.

warehouse racking bay

What is a warehouse racking bay?


A warehouse 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 pallet racking beam length, but 1350mm, 2250mm and 3300mm are also widely used.

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 pallet racking, 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 Fife, Dorset, Lincoln, Swansea or anywhere between, we can give you a great delivered price on a warehouse 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.

How to buy used warehouse racking


Our warehouses are always full of quality used warehouse racking and while we will always have the leading manufacturers, such as Dexion, Link 51, Apex and Redirack in stock, specific beam sizes can come and go. Therefore, if you need used pallet racking beams in a particular system and size, it is advisable to give us a call on 0800 612 3210 to check availability.

All frame heights are usually in stock because we tend to buy frames at 8, 9 or 10 metres high which can then be cut to exact height depending on customer requests. We can also splice smaller frames together to create taller frames when required. This actually strengthens the frame and usually doesn’t affect where beam levels can be located. We keep bracing for standard 900mm and 1100mm frame depths in stock, but we can often make bracing for bespoke sizes on request. Again, if you need a specific manufacturer it is worth getting in touch to check current stock.

We have an extensive catalogue of industrial racking accessories, such as pallet support bars, column guards, rack end barriers and wire mesh decking. These are in stock and can be ordered through the website for delivery in as little as 2-3 working days.

We can deliver you used warehouse racking to any UK mainland address. Our delivery prices are based on the number of pallet spaces your order would take on an artic. For small order it’s worth getting in touch with us as we can usually get a better price from our haulage supplier. So if you need a single pallet racking frame in Stoke, a few Dexion racking beams in York or a single bay of longspan shelving in Kent we will do our best to give you a great delivered price.

Call us now or send an enquiry form and we will reply to you quickly.

How do I know what Dexion racking I need?


How do I know what Dexion racking I need?

Dexion racking, or pallet racking to use the proper term, can be a complicated business if you aren’t familiar with the specific terms and the way it works, but we can help you to find the right storage solution for your business.

People will often ask for Dexion racking when actually they want racking from a completely different (and non-compatible) manufacturer. If you send us a photo of the racking you have, we can identify the racking system and then give you a quote for compatible materials. Apex, Link 51, Redirack and PSS are all popular industrial racking makers that we always have in stock and we can usually source less common systems such as Hilo, Esmena and Mecalux.

The size of the frames and beams that you need will depend on the dimensions of the space you have available and size of the pallets that you are storing. UK pallets are 1200mm x 1000mm and Euro pallets are 1200mm x 800mm, but if you are storing non-standard pallets or non-palletised items we can adjust standard pallet racking sizes to accommodate your stock. Our helpful and knowledgeable team are happy to spend as much time as you need to get the right warehouse racking for your business.

We can deliver to any UK mainland address (we have orders going to Essex, Gateshead, Hereford and Motherwell in the next week) and we also have fully qualified installation engineers.

Call us now on 0800 612 3210 or send us a brief message on our enquiry form and we will get back to you quickly.

Dexion racking

Dexion Racking and so much more


Dexion Racking and so much more.

Dexion racking is probably the thing that we are asked for most often. However, Dexion is just one of many used pallet 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 systems such as Hilo, Stow, Mecalux and Esmena.

Used warehouse 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 have recently delivered racking similar to that it the photo to customers in Hull and Birmingham.

Whichever type of 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.
