used pallet racking decking boards

Used pallet racking decking boards


We are often asked for used pallet racking decking boards to go on warehouse racking systems that customers are ordering from us, and we can almost always find the right solution for each specific storage system.

We usually have used timber decking in stock, both open boarded (with gaps between the wooden slats) and closed boarded (with the slats pushed together and no gaps). This is the most popular way to turn your industrial racking into heavy duty shelving, or just to support your pallets and give your forklift driver a bigger area to aim at! Standard depth are 900mm and 1100mm and we can adjust these boards to fit all beam lengths. 

We also have new timber decking for pallet racking in stock, as well as new wire mesh decking. We stock standard depths but we can quote for bespoke decking on request. All of our decking options are compatible with the most popular pallet racking manufacturers, such as Link 51, Dexion, Apex, Redirack and Stow.

We deliver to any UK mainland address, so we can always give you a great delivered price. Part loads are currently scheduled to go to Derby, Cardiff, Sunderland and Kent in the next couple of weeks so contact us now if you are close to these areas and we will try to accommodate your order for used pallet racking decking boards, or anything else from our extensive range. Call us on 0800 612 3210 or send us the details of your order on an enquiry form and we will reply to you quickly.

Pallet racking accessories, sell pallet racking

How do I sell pallet racking?


If you are looking to sell pallet racking that you no longer need or use then we are waiting to hear from you. We are always looking for medium to large quantities of good quality warehouse racking or longspan shelving and will pay great prices for it.

Before you contact us, please try to have as much information about the racking as you can. This should include the height depth and quantity of upright frames (and the duty if known), the length, load capacity and quantity of horizontal frames and the manufacturer of your racking (eg. Dexion, Link 51, Apex, Redirack, Mecalux etc) . We would also like a few clear photos of the racking that will show us its condition and so we can identify the make if you aren’t sure of it.

If your industrial racking is of interest to us, we will make you an offer quickly and can work around your time restraints when it comes to arranging dismantling and transportation. If you aren’t able to take down the racking yourself, we can deduct this cost from the price we would pay. Our SEIRS qualified installation teams can drop the racking quickly and make sure that it is stacked and banded correctly, ready for loading onto a vehicle.

Lastly, we can arrange for our haulage supplier to collect your racking and deliver it to our warehouse if required.

We have recently bought large quantities of used pallet racking in York, Brighton, Edinburgh and Newport, so wherever you are in the UK, if you want to sell pallet racking, we would love to hear from you.

Call us now on 0800 612 3210 with as many details as you can, or complete the enquiry form and we will reply to you quickly.

pallet racking protection

Pallet racking protection


Pallet racking protection is a vital part of any warehouse storage system. Damage to your warehouse racking can be both dangerous and costly, but with some simple measures in place you can prevent many of these accidents from happening.

Column guards are a relatively cheap way to prevent forklift damage to your pallet racking uprights. Ours are bolted to the floor in front of each leg, creating a “crumple zone” in front of the racking. We have large quantities in stock and and they are ready for dispatch in just 2-3 days.

Rack end barriers perform a similar job at the ends of your runs of industrial racking and are available in sizes to suit standard single and back to back runs. All our guards and barriers are supplied with fixing bolts to secure them to a concrete floor.

If any of your warehouse racking backs on to pedestrian areas then anti-collapse mesh should be in place to prevent items falling from the racking and causing injuries. We can supply mesh which can be fixed to pallet racking from all leading manufacturers (Dexion, Link 51, Redirack, Apex, PSS, Polypal, Mecalux etc), usually in 7-10 working days.

Whatever you pallet racking protection requirements are we can help you, no matter where you are in the UK. Our main warehouse is between Leeds and Hull but we have deliveries going across the country every day. Call us now on 0800 612 3210 to discuss your options, or send us an enquiry form and we will reply to you quickly.

Pallet Racking System

How to identify your pallet racking system


Each and every pallet racking system is different and almost all are incompatible with each other, so it is really important to get the right manufacturer if you want to add to or replace parts in your warehouse racking.

We have an Identify My Racking page on the website which shows clearly the design of many leading pallet racking manufacturers. The shape of the holes in the upright frames and horizontal beams are the easiest way to check the type of racking you have. If you can’t see anything that matches your warehouse racking, or you aren’t sure, please send us a clear photo (similar to the ones on the Identify My Racking page) and we will do our best to let you know the make of pallet racking that you have.

We always have leading manufacturers such as Dexion, Link 51, Apex, Redirack and PSS in stock and in a wide range of sizes and duties. Currently we also have good stocks of Stow, Polypal and Jungheinrich, but whatever industrial racking you need please send us the details and we can usually supply suitable materials.

We deliver to all UK mainland addresses, so wherever you are we can help you find the right components for your pallet racking system. We regularly have artics going from our main warehouse near Leeds to London, Bristol, Manchester and Glasgow, and we will always try to accommodate any last minute orders where possible.

Call us now on 0800 612 3210 and our helpful team will be happy to check availability and send you a free, no obligation quote. Alternatively, you can complete the enquiry form 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.
