Vertical Racking

We are experts at designing and installing multiple storage solutions using our years of experience to create the ideal solution for your business. Our vertical racking solutions are ideal for storing any long or tall materials safely and easily.

The standard finish of the racking is painted (with a range of colours to choose from) although galvanised racking can be supplied for outside use.

Whether you’re looking to fit out a small storage space or a full warehouse we have multiple storage options and can create a customised solution for your business. Why not get in touch with our sales team to discuss your needs by completing the online form or give us a call on 01430 410 450.

Vertical Racking Sizings

We supply both single-sided (1.2m) and double-sided (2.4m) vertical racks. The racks are manufactured in 3m modules with a 3m starter bay then 3m extension bays. For example a 9m run would be 1 x starter bay and 2 x extension bays. This design makes the system not only cost effective as it shares a frame but also adaptable as extension bays can be added to existing racks.

One of the main features of vertical racking is its ability to utilise space which would normally be wasted. A standard rack which is 4.2m high is desined to hold lengths up to 6m.

We can supply additional heights and sizes to suit your requirements upon request.

Dividing & Storing your Products

Our Vertical Racks can be divided into sections with the use of infinitely adjustable "D" hoop dividers. The "D" hoops provide a safer alternative to single prong arms as they have rounded corners and are a better option around operating fork lift trucks. An internal facing metal flap on the "D" hoop provides a location for labeling and stock identification. A hook to accomadate safety chains is also provided.
