dexion shelving

Dexion shelving or Dexion racking- what do I need to order?


Dexion shelving is a name sometimes used for Dexion racking, or pallet racking to use the generic name. Buying it 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 warehouse storage solution for your business.

People will often ask for Dexion racking when actually they want warehouse 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, Sperrin and Stow.

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.

If you are actually looking for Dexion shelving, we have huge stocks of timber and wire mesh decking to suit any pallet racking dimensions.

We can deliver to any UK mainland address (we have orders going to Liverpool, Falkirk, Newcastle and Bournemouth in the next week) and we also have fully qualified installation engineers available, no matter what size the job is.

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.

buy used pallet racking

Buy used pallet racking, industrial shelving and much more


If you need to buy used pallet racking, industrial shelving or any other type of warehouse storage equipment, we can help you to get exactly what you need. Customers find us in a number of different ways, and what they are looking for can vary widely, but we give every customer the best service we can, no matter what they are looking for. These are a few examples of recent enquiries:

  1. A customer in Newport wanted some used pallet racking for his warehouse. A Google search led him to our website where he selected the sizes and quantities he needed and placed an order online. When his order came through to us, the configuration didn’t look right, so we gave him a call and soon established that both the sizes and quantities weren’t right for what he needed. We corrected the order, supplied some used Redirack and the customer was very happy with the racking that he received.
  2. We had a call from a customer after another business on his industrial estate in Leeds recommended us to him. He just needed a short run of industrial racking to store both palletised and hand loaded materials for his business. We had used Dexion racking in suitable sizes, with timber decking for the hand loaded elements. We supplied and installed the racking quickly, helping to create extra space in the customer’s warehouse in time for his upcoming peak trading period.
  3. We received an enquiry form through our website, from a company in Watford. They had attached a plan of the warehouse racking that they were looking for and asked for a price for both new and used pallet racking. We provided them with quotes for all materials (10 runs of 6 bays of racking, each with 4 beam levels) in used Link 51 racking and new AR racking, along with column guards and pallet support bars for all bays. They were very happy with the service they received from us and decided to buy used pallet racking, which arrived just 7 working days from confirmation of the order and has now been installed.
  4. After an online search for longspan shelving, a small business in Edinburgh found our number and gave us a call. They needed runs of heavy duty shelving to go round 3 sides of a new warehouse they  were moving to. Our longspan comes in so many size options that it was easy for us to find a solution that made maximum use of the storage space they had available. Some of the items they intended to store were heavy, but our longspan can take in excess of 500kg per shelf in almost all beam sizes and so this was easily solved. We were also able to supply warehouse safety steps for them so that they could make full use of the 3500mm height available.

So, as you can see, wherever you are in the UK and whatever your warehouse storage requirements are, we can help you to find the best solution at a great price. Call us on 0800 612 3210, send us an enquiry form or order online now!

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 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.
