Longspan Racking

When products are handled manually rather than by Forklift Truck

Longspan Racking

We’ve been designing and installing racking systems for clients across multiple industries for years. No matter what your storage requirements are, we can help create the ideal solution for your business. 

Longspan racking is ideal when products are handled manually rather than by forklift truck. The beam loading capacity is generally less than pallet racking although most weight loadings are available. Palletised products can be stored at floor level with the loose stock being stored above.

The frames and beams come in a variety of sizes to suit different application requirements and popular decking materials include chipboard and solid steel panels.

Longspan can be adapted for specific applications such as door storage.
