Pallet Racking System

How to identify your pallet racking system


Each and every pallet racking system is different and almost all are incompatible with each other, so it is really important to get the right manufacturer if you want to add to or replace parts in your warehouse racking.

We have an Identify My Racking page on the website which shows clearly the design of many leading pallet racking manufacturers. The shape of the holes in the upright frames and horizontal beams are the easiest way to check the type of racking you have. If you can’t see anything that matches your warehouse racking, or you aren’t sure, please send us a clear photo (similar to the ones on the Identify My Racking page) and we will do our best to let you know the make of pallet racking that you have.

We always have leading manufacturers such as Dexion, Link 51, Apex, Redirack and PSS in stock and in a wide range of sizes and duties. Currently we also have good stocks of Stow, Polypal and Jungheinrich, but whatever industrial racking you need please send us the details and we can usually supply suitable materials.

We deliver to all UK mainland addresses, so wherever you are we can help you find the right components for your pallet racking system. We regularly have artics going from our main warehouse near Leeds to London, Bristol, Manchester and Glasgow, and we will always try to accommodate any last minute orders where possible.

Call us now on 0800 612 3210 and our helpful team will be happy to check availability and send you a free, no obligation quote. Alternatively, you can complete the enquiry form and we will reply to you quickly.

We have huge stocks of used pallet racking from all leading manufacturers (Dexion, Apex, Link 51, Redirack etc), but if you need a specific size it’s always best to get in touch with us to confirm availability. Call us on 0800 612 3210, use the live chat box or send us an enquiry form and we will reply to you quickly.

If you aren’t sure what type of warehouse racking you have, go to the identify my racking section for some help, or you can send us a photo of your pallet racking using the enquiry form.

The FAQs section of the website answers many common questions about industrial racking and longspan shelving. Please give us a call if there is anything further you need to know.

We are always looking for medium to large parcels of quality used pallet racking to buy, the sell your pallet racking section will tell you all the information we ask for if you have racking you no longer need or use.

If you have any feedback about the new website, we would love to hear it. Please give us a call or send us a message.

 

Hand loaded warehouse shelving


Hand loaded warehouse shelving, or longspan shelving as it is often known, is scaled down version of pallet racking used for storing non-palletised goods. It has the upright frames and horizontal beams of pallet racking, but the beams are a z-profile to support a chipboard shelf.

We have large quantities of our QuickSpan shelving system in stock, available for fast dispatch in a wide range of sizes.

The upright frames are 2000mm to 5000mm and can be braced at depths from 400mm to 1200mm. All frames are supplied assembled, with footplates attached and including fixing bolts and shims.

Beams come in sizes from 950mm to 2700mm and are supplied with beam locks. We have chipboard decks and support bars to suit all sizes of shelving. Dropover steel shelves are also available for this shelving system.

The beam height can be adjusted every 50mm on the frames and the load capacity is up to 1075kg UDL per shelf. This makes for a very versatile and fully adjustable heavy duty shelving system suitable for all warehouse and industrial environments.

Call us now on 0800 612 3210 to place an order or to discuss your hand loaded warehouse shelving options. Alternatively, send us an enquiry form and we will get back to you quickly.

How to buy used warehouse racking


Our warehouses are always full of quality used warehouse racking and while we will always have the leading manufacturers, such as Dexion, Link 51, Apex and Redirack in stock, specific beam sizes can come and go. Therefore, if you need used pallet racking beams in a particular system and size, it is advisable to give us a call on 0800 612 3210 to check availability.

All frame heights are usually in stock because we tend to buy frames at 8, 9 or 10 metres high which can then be cut to exact height depending on customer requests. We can also splice smaller frames together to create taller frames when required. This actually strengthens the frame and usually doesn’t affect where beam levels can be located. We keep bracing for standard 900mm and 1100mm frame depths in stock, but we can often make bracing for bespoke sizes on request. Again, if you need a specific manufacturer it is worth getting in touch to check current stock.

We have an extensive catalogue of industrial racking accessories, such as pallet support bars, column guards, rack end barriers and wire mesh decking. These are in stock and can be ordered through the website for delivery in as little as 2-3 working days.

We can deliver you used warehouse racking to any UK mainland address. Our delivery prices are based on the number of pallet spaces your order would take on an artic. For small order it’s worth getting in touch with us as we can usually get a better price from our haulage supplier. So if you need a single pallet racking frame in Stoke, a few Dexion racking beams in York or a single bay of longspan shelving in Kent we will do our best to give you a great delivered price.

Call us now or send an enquiry form and we will reply to you quickly.

What size pallet racking beams should I use?


There are a huge range of used pallet 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 warehouse 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). We will always supply used 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.

Mobile warehouse safety steps


To compliment our pallet racking and longspan shelving systems, we also have an extensive range of mobile warehouse safety steps.

Our mobile warehouse safety steps are available in sizes from a small two step tilt and move, suitable for stock rooms or office environments, to 15 tread, 3750mm high extra wide warehouse steps which would be ideal for picking areas in a distribution centre. The whole range is ergonomically designed, strong, easy to manoeuvre and safe to use.

All our safety steps have a large working platform (which can be extended on request) and a safe working load of 300kg. They come with 2 handrails and can be adapted to include platform exits and bottom gates, please give us a call for a price or more details.

All our steps are made to order, with a lead time of 7-10 working days and we can delivery to any UK mainland address. We have recently supplied warehouse steps to businesses in Sheffield, East London, Devon and Middlesbrough.
