Heavy-Duty Warehouse Shelving - More Information


Warehouse Shelving

What is heavy-duty warehouse shelving?

Warehouse shelving units are metal framed bays with shelves made of chipboard, designed for safely storing a wide variety of items. These shelving and racking units are made for demanding use in commercial environments such as warehouses and stock rooms. We have lots of different sizes and tier options to choose from to suit all applications and areas.

All of these warehouse shelves are made proudly in the UK and come with a full 5-year manufacturer’s warranty, so you can be sure that no compromises are made on build quality. Every effort has been made to create useful and exceptionally hard-wearing shelves. The beams are made from durable steel and the tough chipboard shelves are double riveted onto the beams for increased stability and strength.


These heavy-duty warehouse shelving units are extremely easy to assemble. They take between 5 – 10 minutes and require only a rubber mallet to build, with no bolts required. This makes it much quicker and easier to assemble than traditional shelving units. Use these warehouse shelving units to keep your storage areas tidy and well organised. These warehouse shelving units have incredible load capacities of 400kg – 600kg per shelf so are very suitable for storing heavy stock.


What are the benefits of heavy-duty warehouse shelving and which models should I use?

Heavy-duty warehouse shelving is ideal for demanding commercial environments. These shelves are exceptionally strong and sturdy so are perfect for intensive use and storing heavy / bulky items. We tier options from 3 – 5 and size options from 92cm wide to 244cm wide and 31cm deep to 122cm deep, making it easy to find the right kind of racking for the type of items you want to store.


The innovative double riveting attachment system means you can set the shelf height according to your own requirements. The beams have holes the entire way up the full length so you can choose to have shelves that are the same size, or you can have some larger or smaller gaps in the same unit. Having larger gaps between shelves on the bottom, for storing heavy items, and smaller gaps and the top for smaller / lighter items works especially well and gives you lots of flexibility.


For cramped storage areas, the shallower depths are more suitable. The very deep shelves are great for storing really large and bulky items and for use in large warehouses. To make the best use of your available space you can use narrow and wide shelves together, with the same depths. This will allow you to get the largest amount of shelving possible in your storage area.
