warehouse storage solutions

Warehouse storage solutions are more than just pallet racking


When you think about warehouse storage solutions, pallet racking might be the first thing that springs to mind. Warehouse racking, particularly used pallet racking, is our speciality and the biggest part of our business, but there are many other ways to store your stock that we can help you with.

For non-palletised items, we can supply longspan shelving, a heavy duty system that works in much the same way as pallet racking, with upright frames and horizontal beams. Longspan beams have a z profile (rather than the box section of racking beams), so that a chipboard deck will sit securely between them, and with support bars under the chipboard they can take well in excess of 500kg per shelf for almost all beam sizes. This robust and versatile system is available in a wide range of sizes, so we can help you find the best layout to make full use of the space you have for storage of your stock.

Cantilever racking provides an effective way to store long materials such as pipes, rods, structural sections, profiles, timber and flat sheets such as  chipboard. We offer off the shelf solutions for single or double-sided cantilever storage for long but lightweight items. It is easy to assemble, simple, stable and safe. For heavy loads, we can provide high strength bespoke solutions including systems suitable for indoor and outdoor use.

You may also be looking for storage options for your employees to keep their personal items safe. We have a huge range of lockers that we can supply in many different sizes, colours and for a different working environments.

Whatever you warehouse storage requirements are, we can help you to find the best solution for your business. Call us now on 0800 612 3210 to discuss you options or to place an order. Alternatively, you can send us an enquiry form and we will reply to you quickly. All our warehouse storage solutions are available for delivery to any UK mainland address, so whether you are in Leeds, Worcester, Liverpool or Brighton we can supply you with what you need.

cantilever racking systems

Cantilever racking systems


Cantilever racking systems are a strong, versatile and cost effective way to store long products or non-standard sizes. They are a great way to maximise your warehouse storage capacity, making use of the available height and allowing you to store items of varying sizes in the same area.

We have recently added some new cantilever racking bays to our website shop, which you can see here. These simple starter and extension bays are available in as little as 5 working days, with many options available to suit your specific needs.

If you need a larger cantilever system, we can supply you with bespoke racking that suits your individual requirements. The uprights can be single or double sided and up to 10 metres high. The bracing which joins the uprights together can be tailored to the exact distance required for the length of the items that you will be storing. Horizontal load supporting arms are then added to the uprights, on which you will place your products. These can be up to 2500mm in length and will be designed to take the required load capacity. The height of the arms can be adjusted according to the height required for each storage level.

This type of warehouse storage equipment is particularly useful for the following products:

  • Timber
  • Pipes, bars and tubes
  • Sheet materials
  • Worktops and laminates
  • Extrusions
  • Lintels
  • Non-standard pallets

Our bespoke cantilever racking can be galvanised for outdoor use and canopies or cladding can be added to help protect your stock from the weather. 

So if you have large products to store and pallet racking doesn’t suit the dimensions, we can help you to create a warehouse racking system which will enable you to make the most of the space you have available. We have recently supplied cantilever racking to customers in Leeds, Liverpool, Nottingham and Hampshire, so wherever you are in the UK we can find the right industrial racking solution for your business.

Call us now on 0800 612 3210 if you are looking for cantilever racking systems or you think they might help with your warehouse storage and you need some guidance on the options available. Alternatively you can send us a message on the enquiry form and we will reply to you quickly.

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.

Call us now on 0800 612 3210 to place an order if you would like to discuss your options. Alternatively, you can send us an enquiry form and we will reply to you quickly, or use the live chat option during office hours. 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.

second hand storage equipment

What second hand storage equipment do I need?


If you are looking for second hand storage equipment to add to what you already have, or to replace damaged parts, then we can help you to get exactly what you need. You might already know the manufacturer, sizes and quantities of the pallet racking that you are looking for, in which case give us a call and we will confirm availability before sending you a quote. However, there are many different types of warehouse racking available, and almost all of them aren’t compatible with each other, so you need to be sure that you are ordering the right type of industrial racking to avoid delays to your business operation.

Our Identify My Racking page shows you some of the leading manufacturers of warehouse racking, such as Dexion, Link 51, Apex, PSS and Redirack. If your existing racking doesn’t have a name stamped on it, the shape of the holes in the upright frames is often a good way to check what you have. We also have a page showing less common pallet racking systems, but it might be easiest to send us a photo of your existing industrial racking and we can confirm the manufacturer and check our current stock.

We will need to know the height and depth of the upright frames you require, plus the length and load capacity of the horizontal beams. The measurement usually used to describe the beams is the clear entry, which is the space between the upright frames when beams are in place.

Orders are leaving us every day for delivery right across the UK mainland, so wherever you are we can get you the second hand storage equipment that you need. We currently have part filled vehicles scheduled to go to Leeds, Liverpool, Kent and Hereford in the next couple of weeks, so if you are nearby please send us your enquiry now and we will do our best to accommodate you.

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

 

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 warehouse racking

We buy used warehouse racking


We are always looking to buy used warehouse racking in medium to large parcels and in very good condition. Leading manufacturers such as Dexion, Redirack, Apex and Link 51 are particularly of interest, but we will consider all other makes (Hilo, Esmena, Stow, Mecalux etc.) if the quantity and quality is right. We also want to hear about heavy duty shelving, such as longspan, and large amounts of bolted shelving if it is in great condition.

If you have industrial racking that you no longer need or use, please give us a call with as many details as you have, such as the sizes and quantities of upright frames and horizontal beams, whereabouts in the UK it is and whether or not you would need us to take it down and/or transport it. We may also take any pallet support bars, timber or wire mesh decking, column guards or rack end barriers as part of the deal.

Whether you are in Edinburgh, Liverpool, Nottingham or Somerset, call us now on 0800 612 3210, or use the enquiry form to send us a message and we will get back to you quickly. Almost every week we buy used warehouse racking and yours could be our next purchase.
