Shelving & Racking Ltd

Shelving & Racking Ltd wish you a Merry Christmas!


Shelving & Racking Ltd would like to wish all of our customers and suppliers a very Merry  Christmas and a happy, successful 2022.

We’re happy to have got through another challenging year unscathed, with used pallet racking once again proving to be our most successful range of products. Sales of Dexion, Apex, Link 51, Redirack and PSS have been strong and the stock in our warehouse suggests that we are well set up for the New Year.

Our longspan shelving range continues to be very popular and is a strong versatile system, suitable for all environments where a heavy duty shelving system is required.

We have seen fantastic growth in the sales of warehouse steps, access platforms and truck docks, which are suitable for almost any picking area, hand loaded storage or loading environment.

2021 has seen us install warehouse racking systems right across the UK. Our highly experienced and helpful teams have installed a few bays of industrial racking in Huddersfield, cantilever racking in Kidderminster, used pallet racking in Grimsby, hand loaded shelving in Milton Keynes, and that’s just in the last couple of weeks!

warehouse safety steps

Warehouse safety steps for hand loaded storage & picking areas


Mobile warehouse safety steps can be an invaluable asset if you are trying to make the most of the height available in your picking area or hand loaded storage. We have a wide range of options available to suit any warehouse storage environment and all of them can be adapted to the specific requirements of your business.

All of our safety steps come with two handrails as standard and have a safe working load of 300kg. They are ergonomically designed, strong and easy to manoeuvre.

The standard mobile safety step starts at 2 treads, with a working platform height of 500mm and goes up to a 15 tread model which has a working height of 3750mm. The platform at the top is 550mm x 400mm, with an all round kick board and a hand rail 1000mm above the platform.

The narrow aisle option is just 590mm wide for the 2-4 tread options (630mm for the 5-8 tread), so if space is tight these might be the solution that you are looking for.

If you need more space for picking bulky items or carrying toolboxes then the extra wide steps may be what you are looking for. The treads and platform on this model are 700mm wide. And if you are carrying very heavy items, the heavy duty mobile safety steps have the same wide platform but also have a safe working load of 500kg.

Storage of warehouse steps can be an issue, in which case our knock down safety steps are a great option. Once located on your premises, these steps can be erected and taken down in minutes. Once assembled, they have the same specifications as our standard warehouse safety steps.

Smaller, lightweight storeroom steps and 2-4 tread tilt and move steps are ideal for smaller office or stockroom environments.

Hinged or chained gates can be added to your steps and the platform length can be extended, so whatever your bespoke requirements are, we can find the right step for your business. Our friendly, helpful team are happy to talk through all of the options with you, so you can feel confident of getting the right model. Call us now on 0800 612 3210 or send us an enquiry form and we will reply to you quickly.

We can delivery to any UK mainland address. Recent orders for steps have been dispatched to Harrogate, Manchester, Bristol and Watford, so wherever you are we can supply the safety steps that you need.
