industrial metal shelving and pallet racking

Industrial metal shelving and pallet racking


If you are looking for industrial metal shelving, pallet racking, warehouse steps, lockers or any other type of warehouse storage equipment, you’ve come to the right place! We have an extensive catalogue and an experienced team who are happy to help you to find the right product for your business.

We have thousands of bays of quality used warehouse racking in stock in a wide range of sizes. Leading manufacturers such as Dexion, Link 51, Apex, PSS and Redirack are always in stock, and we will do all we can to find the right industrial racking to suit your requirements. Pallet racking can easily be configured for use as carpet racking or tyre racking, and timber or wire mesh decking can be added to create heavy duty shelving bays. We also have pallet support bars, column guards and rack end barriers in stock to complete your racking system.

Our longspan shelving system is one of our most popular products, due to its strength, versatility and ease of use. Like a scaled down version of pallet racking, it has upright frames and horizontal beams, but the beams are profiled to take a chipboard shelf for hand loaded storage. We have a full range of new longspan shelving in stock, meaning that this system can be dispatch in just a few working days.

As you can see from the photo, our new office in Leeds now has all new signage and we are ready to supply you with the pallet racking or metal shelving that you need. We have deliveries going to all parts of the UK mainland every day, so whether you are in Huddersfield, Middlesbrough, Wrexham or Sussex, we are the company to call for any warehouse storage equipment enquiries.

Call us now on 0800 612 3210 to speak to a member of the team, or send us a message on the enquiry form and we will reply to you quickly.

 

who buys used pallet racking

Who buys used pallet racking?


The simple answer to “who buys used pallet racking?” is “we do!”, so if you have a medium to large quantity of warehouse racking in good condition then we are waiting for your call. We are always interested in good quality industrial racking from leading manufacturers such as Dexion, Link 51, Apex, Redirack, PSS or Mecalux but we will consider all offers if the quantity and condition is right.

The first thing we will always ask is how many upright frames and horizontal beams do you have, and what sizes are they. If you can also send us some clear close up photos of the racking, so that we can see the condition and, if necessary, identify the manufacturer we should then be able to give you an indication of the value of your used racking. If you are working to a deadline, let us know when that is and we will do all we can to work within the timescale you give us. Finally, we would want to know if you need us to dismantle the warehouse storage equipment and arrange transport or will you deliver it to us.

We can also include timber decking, pallet support bars, column guards and anti-collapse mesh in any purchases, so if you have these please include them in the list of quantities and sizes.

We have recently bought used racking from warehouse clearances in Canterbury, York, Swansea and Bolton, so wherever you are in the UK we want to hear from you.

Please call us now on 0800 612 3210 if you are trying to find out who buys used pallet racking, or send us as many details as you can on the enquiry form and we will reply to you quickly. During office hours you can also use the live chat to talk to a member of the team.

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.

warehouse racking protection

Warehouse racking protection


Warehouse racking protection is a vital part of any industrial storage system. Damage to your pallet 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 warehouse 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 to all parts of 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 bay

What is a pallet racking bay?


A pallet 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 warehouse racking beam length, but 1350mm, 2250mm and 3300mm are also widely used. The load capacity of the beams ranges from a few hundred kilos to at least three tonnes for a uniformly distributed load (UDL). 

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 warehouse storage equipment, 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 Bradford, Crewe, Maidstone, Middlesbrough or anywhere between, we can give you a great delivered price on a pallet racking bay or a full distribution centre of used Dexion racking.

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.

used industrial storage

Used industrial storage equipment available now


Our warehouses are always full of quality used industrial storage equipment and while we will always have the leading manufacturers, such as Dexion, Link 51, Apex and Redirack in stock, specific beam sizes can come and go. Therefore, if you need used pallet racking beams in a particular system and size, it is advisable to give us a call on 0800 612 3210 to check availability.

All frame heights are usually in stock because we tend to buy frames at 8, 9 or 10 metres high which can then be cut to exact height depending on customer requests. We can also splice smaller frames together to create taller frames when required. This actually strengthens the frame and usually doesn’t affect where beam levels can be located. We keep bracing for standard 900mm and 1100mm frame depths in stock, but we can often make bracing for bespoke sizes on request. Again, if you need a specific manufacturer it is worth getting in touch to check current stock.

We have an extensive catalogue of warehouse racking accessories, such as pallet support bars, column guards, rack end barriers and wire mesh decking. These are in stock and can be ordered through the website for delivery in as little as 2-3 working days.

We can deliver you used pallet racking to any UK mainland address. Our delivery prices are based on the number of pallet spaces your order would take on an artic. For small order it’s worth getting in touch with us as we can usually get a better price from our haulage supplier. So if you need a single pallet racking frame in Huddersfield, a few Dexion racking beams in Worcester or a single bay of longspan shelving in Brighton we will do our best to give you a great delivered price for your used industrial storage equipment.

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