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.

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!

warehouse storage

Warehouse storage is more than just pallet racking


When you think about warehouse storage, 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.

If you have valuable or hazardous materials to store, our new range of high security cages will protect your stock and come in a range of sizes to suit your space. They are designed as a modular panel system and so can be adapted to the shape and size that you need. You can see this product on our website here.

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.

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.
