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.

warehouse storage guide

Warehouse storage guide to help you get exactly what you need


Customers often come to us asking for a warehouse storage guide for their business, because they don’t know what their options are or how to describe what they are looking for. We have many years of experience in pallet racking and warehouse shelving and so we will happily spend as much time as you need to help you to make sure you get the right storage system for your stock.

These tips will help you to give us the information we need in order to give you the best quote, at the best price, for your warehouse racking requirements:

  • Measure the area where the racking will go as accurately as you can (twice!) in millimetres. We will try to fit as much storage racking as we can into the dimensions you give us, so it’s really important that it is measured correctly.
  • If you are storing pallets, we need to know what type. UK pallets are 1200mm x 1000mm and Euro pallets are 1200mm x 800mm (there are also many other non-standard pallet sizes). The maximum height and weight of each pallet will also help us supply the right racking for you.
  • If you are adding to pallet racking that you already have, we need to know what type it is. There are many different manufacturers of industrial racking (Dexion, Link 51, Apex, PSS and Redirack are among the most common) and none of them are compatible with each other. If you aren’t sure what you have, our Identify My Racking page might help, or you can send us a photo and we will be able to identify it.
  • All of our upright frames are supplied assembled and with footplates attached, beam locks are supplied with all horizontal beams. Our used racking is checked to SEMA specifications prior to dispatch.
  • Let us know if you need other materials with your pallet racking. We have Timber and wire mesh decking, column guards, pallet support bars and rack end barriers in stock. If you aren’t sure whether you need them, we can talk you through all of the benefits and points to consider before ordering.
  • We can deliver to any UK mainland address. In the next week we have orders going to Leeds, Crewe, Hull and Kent, so wherever you are we will give you a great delivered price. If you would prefer to collect your order, please let us know

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 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.
