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.

If you know what you need you can order through the website, we will send you an acknowledgement straight away confirm the current lead time for the warehouse platform steps that you have ordered.

warehouse racking beams

Which warehouse racking beams should I use?


There are a huge range of warehouse racking beams 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 need.

Firstly, there are at least 20 different manufacturers of pallet 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 industrial 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 measurement we use to describe pallet racking beams is the clear entry- the space between the upright frames when beams are in place.

pallet racking beams, clear entry

2700mm is the most common pallet racking beam size, as this can be used to store UK pallets (2 pallets per level with 900mm deep frames) and euro pallets (3 pallets per level with 1100mm deep frames). There are many other standard sizes which are close to 2700mm and which may work for your warehouse storage, depending on the pallets you are using. 2625mm, 2650mm, 2667mm, 2670mm, 2743mm, 2750mm and 2800mm are all regularly seen on the used market.

2250mm racking beams are generally used to store 2 UK pallets on 1100mm deep frames and 2225mm, 2286mm, 2300mm beams are also often available. We also usually have single pallet beams (1350mm, 1372mm or 1425mm) and longer beams which can be anything from 2900mm to 4000mm in length.

The load capacity of pallet racking beams can vary from a few hundred kilos to 3 tonnes (and sometimes beyond) per pair. We will always supply used warehouse racking beams whose capacity is at least the maximum requested load capacity.

Call us now on 0800 612 3210 to discuss your options or send us an enquiry form and we will get back to you quickly. We deliver warehouse storage equipment to any UK mainland address, so whether you are in York, Grimsby, Glasgow or Windsor we can supply you with the pallet racking you need.

Call us on 0800 612 3210 or send us an enquiry form.

heavy duty industrial shelving

Heavy duty industrial shelving for all your hand loaded storage needs


Heavy duty industrial shelving is a great way to store boxes or loose items of stock without the need for wide aisles to accommodate forklifts or reach trucks. If you are creating a picking area or you have heavy items that aren’t palletised then we can find a great solution to suit your requirements.

Our longspan shelving is a highly versatile and very strong system that is suitable for almost any storage environment. Longspan is like a scaled down version of pallet racking, with the same upright frames and horizontal beams. However, the beams have a Z profile (unlike the box section of pallet racking beams) so that a chipboard deck sits securely between them, with support bars to add strength and rigidity. If you need a metal shelf, we can supply dropover steel panels, ideal for food storage areas or where regular cleaning is required.

The upright frames are available in depths of 400mm to 1200mm and in heights up to 5 metres. They are always supplied assembled, with footplates attached and including levelling plates and fixing bolts. Beam sizes range from 950mm to 2700mm, with load capacities in excess of 400kg UDL per level for all sizes. All of this means that whatever hand loaded items you need to store, we can find a configuration that will work for your storage area.

If you aren’t sure how to make the most of the space you have available, we will happily suggest a layout for you if you can give us the dimensions of your space and the items to be stored.

We have huge stock of all the components of our heavy duty industrial shelving, which means we can dispatch you order quickly, usually in 3-5 working days. Our transport covers the whole of the UK mainland, so whether you are in Glasgow, York, Hereford or Colchester we can get your order to you quickly and for a great price.

Call us now on 0800 612 3210 to place your order or to talk to us about what you need. Alternatively you can complete our enquiry form and we will reply to you quickly.

Social Distancing

Social Distancing and Employee Protection


Social distancing and employee safety are essential considerations as many companies begin to restart after the Covid-19 lockdown. We have added a range of products to our catalogue to help you ensure that your team can operate in a way that meets with the latest government guidelines.

The social distance marker and floor graphic marker will help everyone to keep a 2 metre distance at all times. They are highly visible and will adhere to any dry, clean, flat surface. If you have uneven or outdoor areas then the social distance floor stencil kit  can be used to clearly mark the 2 metre distance in queuing areas as well as in the workplace. 

Our freestanding perspex full screen is the ideal solution for the segregation of workstations to protect your employees. We have a range of sizes available for quick dispatch and can customise if required in order to meet your specific requirements.

The industrial quality protective curtain is an ideal solution for doorways and to separate rooms, areas or shelving and pallet racking units. This high quality yet cost-effective flexible curtain can also be useful in practicing social distancing between customers and between employees in the workplace. Installed incredibly simply with either industrial strength magnetic strip or pre-drilled holes, this also aids quick removal and cleaning. The curtain can be cut to size on site.

We also have face protection shields and a wide range of barriers, posts and cages to help you maintain social distancing and keep all of your staff and customers safe. If you can’t see what you are looking for, or you would like to discuss your requirements, please call us now on 0800 612 3210 or send an enquiry form.

Our warehouse is operating as close to normal as possible and so if you need new or used pallet racking, longspan and heavy duty shelving or any of our other core products, we can get them to you quickly and at a great price. Whether you are in London, Glasgow, Cardiff or Leeds we can supply you withe the warehouse equipment you need.
