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.

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.

Storage racking

Storage racking tips to help you get exactly what you need


Customers often come to us asking for storage racking for their business but without knowing 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 Essex, Salford, Sunderland and Exeter, so wherever you are we will give you a great delivered price. If you would prefer to collect your order, please let us know 

Call us now on 0800 612 3210 to place an order or to discuss your options. Alternatively, you can send us your details on an enquiry form and we will reply to you quickly.

sell warehouse racking

If you need to sell warehouse racking, we can help


Attempting to sell warehouse racking that you have may seem like an onerous and complicated job, but we can help you and give you a great price too. If you have moved into a warehouse which is full of pallet racking that you don’t need, or you are altering the way you store your stock and need to replace the racking you have, we want to hear from you.

We are currently in the market to buy medium to large parcels of quality used industrial racking. Leading manufacturers such as Dexion, Apex, Link 51, Redirack and PSS are always of interest to us but we will consider all makes of pallet racking if the quantities and condition are right.

To help us give you the best price for your racking, we would need to know the manufacturer, the quantities and sizes of upright frames (the height, depth and duty) and horizontal beams (clear entry length and load capacity) and whereabouts in the UK the racking is located. If there is anything stamped on the racking, that would also be useful to know. We need to see the condition of your pallet racking and so we will ask you to send us some clear, close up photos. This will also help us to confirm the manufacturer if you aren’t sure.

If you need us to dismantle and stack the racking for transportation, we can arrange this. Our SEIRS qualified pallet racking engineers cover the whole of the UK mainland and work quickly and efficiently to clear your warehouse. We can also transport the racking to our warehouse, or you can book your own haulage if you prefer.

Pallet racking accessories such as timber or wire mesh decking, pallet support bars, column guards and anti-collapse mesh can also be included in the sale. Again, let us know the quantities and send us some photos to help us give you the best price.

We have recently bought industrial racking from companies in Manchester, Gateshead, Leicester and Bath, so wherever you are in the UK, if you are looking to sell warehouse racking we want to hear from you.

Call us now on 0800 612 3210 or use the enquiry form to send us some details and we will get back to you quickly. 

second hand racking

Second hand racking- what else do I need?


If you are looking to buy second hand racking, you would start by working out how many upright frames and horizontal beams you need, and what size they need to be. But once you have a layout planned, you can broaden your search to other components that will ensure that your warehouse racking is safe, secure and fit for purpose.

All of our pallet racking beams are supplied with 2 beam locks as standard, because they are important in helping to prevent the beams from being accidentally dislodged by your forklift. If you have beams without locking pins, we can supply as many as you need for all leading manufacturers.

Forklift trucks can also cause expensive and potentially dangerous damage to your racking uprights, so it is important to protect them. Column guards and rack end barriers are a relatively inexpensive way to avoid damage and are easy to install. All of our barriers and guards are supplied with fixing bolts.

If your pallets need extra support, or you want to use your second hand racking for hand loaded storage, we have large stocks of timber and wire mesh decking in stock to suit standard pallet racking sizes. Pallet support bars can also be used to help prevent your pallets from sagging.

All of our pallet racking accessories are compatible with leading manufacturers such as Dexion, Apex, Redirack, Link 51 etc. If you aren’t sure what you need, or would like to discuss your options, our friendly and experienced team are here to help you. Click on the live chat option during office hours for instant answers, or give us a call on 0800 612 3210. Alternatively, you can send us an enquiry form and we will respond to you quickly.

Our deliveries cover the whole of the UK mainland, so whether you are in Aberdeen, Penzance, Kings Lynn or Swansea, we can get you what you need, quickly and at a great price.

 

Dexion racking for sale

Dexion racking for sale at the best prices


We always have quality used Dexion racking for sale at the very best prices. Whether you need a few beam locks, a replacement upright, a couple of bays of used pallet racking to fill a gap in your storeroom or a full warehouse of pallet storage, we can find the right product for you.

Dexion pallet racking comes in a wide variety of sizes, so if you are adding to your existing warehouse racking, it is important to make sure that you get compatible materials. Unlike many other racking systems, you will still find a lot of Dexion in imperial sizes, so beams at 1372mm (4ft 6in), 2667mm (8ft 9in) and 3048mm (10ft), as well as standard metric sizes, are often found on the used market. The measurement used to describe a beam’s size is the clear entry- the space between the upright frames when beams are in place, so please check carefully before placing an order.

Upright frames may also differ from standard 900mm and 1100mm depths, with 914mm (3ft) and 1067mm (3ft 6in) often used for Dexion frames, so again please confirm the required size. We can cut or splice frames to almost any size, so please let us know the exact height you need and we will quote accordingly.

Dexion of often used as a generic term for pallet racking, when in fact there are many different manufacturers available and almost none of them are compatible with each other. Therefore it is important that we know what racking system you have if you are looking to add to it. You can see many of the leading industrial racking makes on our identify my racking page, or send us photos of what you have and we will be able to let you know the manufacturer. Link 51, Apex, Redirack and PSS are all very common makes, but we can usually find whatever type of warehouse racking you need.
