Heavy duty industrial shelving


If you need heavy duty industrial shelving we have a range of options that we are sure will meet your requirements. Our AR longspan shelving comes in a huge variety of sizes and is available for quick dispatch, usually just 2-3 working days. This strong and versatile hand loaded shelving system uses chipboard decking and support bars to take a minimum of 430kg (Uniformly Distributed Load) per shelf. Just let us know the dimensions of the area you have available, and what you are storing, and we will help you to make the most of your warehouse storage space. We can also supply steel shelves and garment rails for this shelving system.

If you need shelving that can take even greater weights, or you would like to add shelving levels to your existing pallet racking, we can also find a solution for you. We have huge stocks of used pallet racking including leading manufacturers such as Apex, Link 51, Dexion and PSS. We can supply timber decking (open or closed boarded) or wire mesh decking to suit all sizes of warehouse racking and creating a strong shelving level for your non-palletised goods or for picking levels.

We have supplied and installed this type of shelving in warehouses across the UK, including recent jobs in York, Doncaster, Carlisle and Essex, so wherever you are we can help you with your heavy duty industrial shelving.

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.

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.

We have great stocks of all leading pallet racking manufacturers (Dexion, Link 51, Redirack, Apex and many more) in a wide range of sizes and duties.

Many businesses use this time of year to plan for moves and expansions of their warehouse storage in the new year, if you are thinking about this we are happy to help you. Our experienced and knowledgeable team can offer you all the guidance you need to make the most of your space, whether it be industrial racking or hand loaded shelving.

heavy duty industrial shelving

Heavy duty industrial shelving for all your hand loaded storage needs


Heavy duty industrial shelving is a great way to store boxes or loose items of stock without the need for wide aisles to accommodate forklifts or reach trucks. If you are creating a picking area or you have heavy items that aren’t palletised then we can find a great solution to suit your requirements.

Our longspan shelving is a highly versatile and very strong system that is suitable for almost any storage environment. Longspan is like a scaled down version of pallet racking, with the same upright frames and horizontal beams. However, the beams have a Z profile (unlike the box section of pallet racking beams) so that a chipboard deck sits securely between them, with support bars to add strength and rigidity. If you need a metal shelf, we can supply dropover steel panels, ideal for food storage areas or where regular cleaning is required.

The upright frames are available in depths of 400mm to 1200mm and in heights up to 5 metres. They are always supplied assembled, with footplates attached and including levelling plates and fixing bolts. Beam sizes range from 950mm to 2700mm, with load capacities in excess of 400kg UDL per level for all sizes. All of this means that whatever hand loaded items you need to store, we can find a configuration that will work for your storage area.

If you aren’t sure how to make the most of the space you have available, we will happily suggest a layout for you if you can give us the dimensions of your space and the items to be stored.

We have huge stock of all the components of our heavy duty industrial shelving, which means we can dispatch you order quickly, usually in 3-5 working days. Our transport covers the whole of the UK mainland, so whether you are in Glasgow, York, Hereford or Colchester we can get your order to you quickly and for a great price.

Call us now on 0800 612 3210 to place your order or to talk to us about what you need. Alternatively you can complete our enquiry form and we will reply to you quickly.

How do I sell pallet racking?


If you are looking to sell pallet racking that you no longer need or use then we are waiting to hear from you. We are always looking for medium to large quantities of good quality warehouse racking or longspan shelving and will pay great prices for it.

Before you contact us, please try to have as much information about the racking as you can. This should include the height depth and quantity of upright frames (and the duty if known), the length, load capacity and quantity of horizontal frames and the manufacturer of your racking (eg. Dexion, Link 51, Apex, Redirack, Mecalux etc) . We would also like a few clear photos of the racking that will show us its condition and so we can identify the make if you aren’t sure of it.

If your industrial racking is of interest to us, we will make you an offer quickly and can work around your time restraints when it comes to arranging dismantling and transportation. If you aren’t able to take down the racking yourself, we can deduct this cost from the price we would pay. Our SEIRS qualified installation teams can drop the racking quickly and make sure that it is stacked and banded correctly, ready for loading onto a vehicle.

Lastly, we can arrange for our haulage supplier to collect your racking and deliver it to our warehouse if required.

We have recently bought large quantities of used pallet racking in York, Brighton, Edinburgh and Newport, so wherever you are in the UK, if you want to sell pallet racking, we would love to hear from you.

Call us now on 0800 612 3210 with as many details as you can, or complete the enquiry form and we will reply to you quickly.
