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.

warehouse racking bay

What is a warehouse racking bay?


A warehouse racking bay is two upright frames joined together with pairs of horizontal beams to create levels on which pallets can be stored. You should always have runs of at least two bays joined together, with at least two beam levels in each bay, for stability and for the manufacturer’s stated load capacities to be valid.

Upright frames are made up of two legs braced together and with footplates attached. Standard depths are 900mm and 1100mm and they can be any height from two metres to fifteen metres (and beyond). Horizontal beams start from 950mm long and are available in a wide variety of sizes, sometimes over 4000mm in length. 2700mm is the most common pallet racking beam length, but 1350mm, 2250mm and 3300mm are also widely used.

If you know the exact sizes and quantities of used pallet racking that you need, we can provide you with a low price quote quickly and without obligation. There are many different manufacturers of pallet racking, such as Dexion, Link 51, Apex, Redirack and PSS, and none of them are compatible with each other. If you are adding to your existing industrial racking, please let us know what you currently have, or send us a photo and we will find suitable materials to add to it.

We can deliver to any UK mainland address and have vehicles going to all parts of the UK every week. So whether you are in Fife, Dorset, Lincoln, Swansea or anywhere between, we can give you a great delivered price on a warehouse racking bay or a full distribution centre of used Dexion racking.

Call us now on 0800 612 3210 or send us an enquiry form and we will reply to you quickly.

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 used 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. Finally, we would want to know if you need us to dismantle the racking 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 Hull, Kent, Nottingham and Blackpool, so wherever you are in the UK we want to hear from you.

Please call us now on 0800 612 3210 if you have used pallet racking for sale, or send us as many details as you can on the enquiry form and we will reply to you quickly.

How do I know what Dexion racking I need?


How do I know what Dexion racking I need?

Dexion racking, or pallet racking to use the proper term, 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 storage solution for your business.

People will often ask for Dexion racking when actually they want 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, Esmena and Mecalux.

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.

We can deliver to any UK mainland address (we have orders going to Essex, Gateshead, Hereford and Motherwell in the next week) and we also have fully qualified installation engineers.

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.
