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.

dexion shelving

Dexion shelving or Dexion racking- what do I need to order?


Dexion shelving is a name sometimes used for Dexion racking, or pallet racking to use the generic name. Buying it can be a complicated business if you aren’t familiar with the specific terms and the way it works, but we can help you to find the right warehouse storage solution for your business.

People will often ask for Dexion racking when actually they want warehouse racking from a completely different (and non-compatible) manufacturer. If you send us a photo of the racking you have, we can identify the racking system and then give you a quote for compatible materials. Apex, Link 51, Redirack and PSS are all popular industrial racking makers that we always have in stock and we can usually source less common systems such as Hilo, Sperrin and Stow.

The size of the frames and beams that you need will depend on the dimensions of the space you have available and size of the pallets that you are storing. UK pallets are 1200mm x 1000mm and Euro pallets are 1200mm x 800mm, but if you are storing non-standard pallets or non-palletised items we can adjust standard pallet racking sizes to accommodate your stock. Our helpful and knowledgeable team are happy to spend as much time as you need to get the right warehouse racking for your business.

If you are actually looking for Dexion shelving, we have huge stocks of timber and wire mesh decking to suit any pallet racking dimensions.

We can deliver to any UK mainland address (we have orders going to Liverpool, Falkirk, Newcastle and Bournemouth in the next week) and we also have fully qualified installation engineers available, no matter what size the job is.

Call us now on 0800 612 3210 or send us a brief message on our enquiry form and we will get back 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.

safety steps

Safety steps for hand loaded storage and warehouse 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 warehouse 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 adde 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 Lancaster, Ipswich, Devon and Durham, so wherever you are we can supply the safety steps that you need.
