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.

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.

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

We have huge stocks of used pallet racking from all leading manufacturers (Dexion, Apex, Link 51, Redirack etc), but if you need a specific size it’s always best to get in touch with us to confirm availability. Call us on 0800 612 3210, use the live chat box or send us an enquiry form and we will reply to you quickly.

How to buy used warehouse racking


Our warehouses are always full of quality used warehouse racking 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 industrial 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 warehouse 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 Stoke, a few Dexion racking beams in York or a single bay of longspan shelving in Kent we will do our best to give you a great delivered price.

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

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 used 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. Finally, we would want to know if you need us to dismantle the racking 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 Hull, Kent, Nottingham and Blackpool, so wherever you are in the UK we want to hear from you.

Please call us now on 0800 612 3210 if you have used pallet racking for sale, or send us as many details as you can on the enquiry form and we will reply to you quickly.

How much used pallet racking do I need?


If you’ve never bought used pallet racking before, or you have a new storage area and don’t know how to calculate how much pallet storage you can fit in it, we can help you find the right solution for your business needs.

If you can send us some or all of the following information, we can propose a layout that will suit your space and then provide you with a low priced quote for materials, delivery and installation (if required):

  • What size are your pallets- length, depth, maximum height and maximum weight
  • What size is your storage area- length, width and height
  • What is the turning circle (required aisle width) and maximum height of your forklift/reach truck
  • How many pallets are you looking to store
  • Are there any obstacles that we need to work around- doorways, ramps, emergency exits, pillars, hanging lighting etc

You might already have warehouse racking that you would like to make use of, let us know what make it is (Dexion, Apex, Link 51, Redirack etc) and we will do our best to supply compatible racking. If you don’t know the manufacturer of your pallet racking, send us a photo and we will let you know.
