new longspan racking

New longspan racking – hand loaded warehouse shelving


Our new longspan racking is one of the most popular products we sell, due to the price, quality and versatility of this hand loaded shelving system. The range of sizes of the upright frames and horizontal beams means that we can find a solution for your heavy duty shelving requirements, whether you need a couple of bays for a small storage area or a full high density picking area for your warehouse.

The dimensions of this shelving system can be tailored to suit the sizes of your stock and to fit in a specific space. The height of each shelving level can be adjusted in 50mm increments, meaning that no space should be wasted. This also gives the flexibility to put the first shelf at a higher level, allowing for pallet storage on the floor underneath.

The longspan shelving that we have in stock is made by AR Systems, but if you need a specific make to match your existing warehouse storage system, please let us know and we can provide you with a quote. Dexion, Link 51, Apex and PSS all have their own hand loaded shelving systems and unfortunately none of them are compatible with each other.

Our new longspan racking system is in stock now and can be delivered to any UK mainland address quickly. We have deliveries going to Doncaster, Kent, Halifax and Dundee in the next couple of week, so if you are close to these areas give us a call now and we will do our best to fit you in.

Call us on 0800 612 3210 or send an enquiry form and we will get back to you quickly.

used racking for sale

Do you have used racking for sale?


If you have used racking for sale then we want to hear from you. We are always in the market for medium to large parcels of quality used pallet racking or longspan shelving and we can arrange to take it down and transport it if required.

If you have a warehouse full of industrial racking that you don’t need then the thought of getting rid of it can seem like a daunting one, but we will happily give you as much guidance as you need. The value of used warehouse racking is based on a number of criteria:

  • The condition of the racking. We will need you to send us a few clear, close up photos so that we can see what your used racking looks like.
  • The manufacturer of the racking. Popular makes such as Dexion, Link 51, Apex, Redirack and PSS are are always of interest, but we will listen to all offers if the quality and quantity are right. If you aren’t sure what type of pallet racking you have, we will be able to identify it from the photos.
  • The size, quantity and duty of the upright frames. We need to know the height and depth of the frames (in millimetres), how many of the you have, and the duty of the frames. The duty might be stamped on the frames- M (medium), S (standard), H (heavy duty) or E (extra heavy duty) are examples of what you might expect to find.
  • The size, quantity and load capacity of the horizontal beams. The size of the beams is the clear entry measurement- the space between the upright frames when beams are in place. The load capacity might be on load notices at the end of each run, or otherwise if you can tell us the height of the front face of the beam, and whether the beam is a box or open section, we may be able to calculate how much weight they can take.

If you need us to drop the racking and stack it for transportation, we have SEIRS qualified engineers who can do this for you. The cost of this service would be deducted from the value of your racking. We can also arrange transport from any UK mainland address if required. We have recently bought parcels of used pallet racking from customers in Keighley, Dumfries, Swansea, Barnsley and Croydon. If you would prefer to deliver the racking to us, you would be welcome to do so, provided it is staked and banded to our specifications.

If you have used racking for sale, call us now on 0800 612 3210. If preferred, you can use the enquiry form to send us as many details as you can and we will reply to you quickly.

used racking

Which used racking frames do I need?


There are a huge range of used racking frames available and finding the appropriate materials for your specific requirements isn’t always straightforward. Our team are always happy to offer you as much help and advice as you need, but here is some guidance which might help you find what you are looking for.

A pallet racking frame is made up of two upright legs, joined together with horizontal and diagonal bracing (in a zig zag pattern) and with footplates attached. To create a single bay of warehouse racking you would need two frames and at least four beams, the horizontal bars that your pallets would sit on.

There are at least 20 different manufacturers of industrial racking and almost none of their components are compatible with each other. So, if you don’t know whether you have Dexion, Link 51, Apex, Redirack or any other make, the first place to look would be our “identify my racking” page, where you can find photos of many leading brands of pallet racking. If this doesn’t help, send us some clear close up photos of your racking and we can usually tell you what you have.

The depth measurement is very important in finding the frames that you need, this is taken from outside edge to outside edge of the uprights. 900mm and 1100mm are by far the most common sizes, but others such as 1050mm, 700mm and 1200mm are sometimes used. Older pallet racking, particularly Dexion Speedlock may also have measurements in imperial sizes, such as 3ft (914mm) and 3ft 6in (1067mm). If you are looking to add bays to your existing racking then the frames you buy must be exactly the same depth.

We can usually supply frames in heights from 2000mm to 10000mm and possibly even higher. Standard heights are in 500mm increments but if you need a specific height please let us know and we can cut the frames down accordingly. Tall frames are often made up of two piece of upright spliced together, with a heavier duty section at the bottom.

The load capacity of the frames is determined by the duty of the frame and the height of the first beam level. The duty of the frame is often stamped on the upright, it could be a letter (M- medium, SD- standard duty, H- heavy duty etc) or a number (Apex frames will be UK8, UK12, UK16 or UK20). Please let us know if you need to match existing frames, or if you know the maximum weight you will be putting in each bay.

We can supply individual upright legs, often to replace one which has been damaged. If this is the case, we need to know the duty of your existing frames so that we can supply a compatible replacement. Bracing can also be bought separately if you need to replace a bent piece.

Call us now on 0800 612 3210 to place an order or to discuss your options. Alternatively you can send us the details of what you are looking for on the enquiry form and we will reply to you quickly.

Attempting to sell warehouse racking that you have may seem like an onerous and complicated job, but we can help you and give you a great price too. If you have moved into a warehouse which is full of pallet racking that you don’t need, or you are altering the way you store your stock and need to replace the racking you have, we want to hear from you.

We are currently in the market to buy medium to large parcels of quality used industrial racking. Leading manufacturers such as Dexion, Apex, Link 51, Redirack and PSS are always of interest to us but we will consider all makes of pallet racking if the quantities and condition are right.

To help us give you the best price for your racking, we would need to know the manufacturer, the quantities and sizes of upright frames (the height, depth and duty) and horizontal beams (clear entry length and load capacity) and whereabouts in the UK the racking is located. If there is anything stamped on the racking, that would also be useful to know. We need to see the condition of your pallet racking and so we will ask you to send us some clear, close up photos.

second hand racking

Second hand racking- what else do I need?


If you are looking to buy second hand racking, you would start by working out how many upright frames and horizontal beams you need, and what size they need to be. But once you have a layout planned, you can broaden your search to other components that will ensure that your warehouse racking is safe, secure and fit for purpose.

All of our pallet racking beams are supplied with 2 beam locks as standard, because they are important in helping to prevent the beams from being accidentally dislodged by your forklift. If you have beams without locking pins, we can supply as many as you need for all leading manufacturers.

Forklift trucks can also cause expensive and potentially dangerous damage to your racking uprights, so it is important to protect them. Column guards and rack end barriers are a relatively inexpensive way to avoid damage and are easy to install. All of our barriers and guards are supplied with fixing bolts.

If your pallets need extra support, or you want to use your second hand racking for hand loaded storage, we have large stocks of timber and wire mesh decking in stock to suit standard pallet racking sizes. Pallet support bars can also be used to help prevent your pallets from sagging.

All of our pallet racking accessories are compatible with leading manufacturers such as Dexion, Apex, Redirack, Link 51 etc. If you aren’t sure what you need, or would like to discuss your options, our friendly and experienced team are here to help you.

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.
