Material Storage Equipment

Efficient organisation and space utilisation are crucial requirements for industrial workplaces, and Material Storage Equipment is a key factor in achieving these objectives.

Our comprehensive range of material storage equipment caters to all types of materials- from small fasteners and components that can be stored in cardboard and plastic containers to heavy-duty metal framed shelving, pallet racking for warehouses, and specialised racks for sheet, bar, and tube materials.

Using the right material storage equipment maximises stock capacity and streamlines the initial stages of manufacturing processes, enhancing overall efficiency.

Benefits of Material Storage Equipment:

Better use of Storage Space

Efficient material storage equipment, such as shelving and racking systems, can greatly improve the use of available warehouse space. This not only maximises storage capacity but also streamlines inventory management, making it easier to access items quickly and reducing the potential for stock damage.

Enhanced Manufacturing Efficiency

In manufacturing, agility and speed of operations are paramount. Material storage equipment empowers operatives by ensuring essential materials are readily accessible, thereby minimising downtime and accelerating production cycles.

This efficiency is akin to a well-oiled machine, where each component is optimally placed for peak performance, directly contributing to enhanced productivity and output quality.


Adaptability to business growth and changing market dynamics is a critical consideration for any industrial operation. Our material storage equipment is designed with scalability in mind, offering equipment that can be expanded or reconfigured in alignment with evolving business needs.

This foresight ensures that your investment in storage infrastructure is both sustainable and conducive to long-term growth, providing a solid foundation for scaling operations.

Safety and Compliance

Adherence to health and safety standards is non-negotiable in the industrial sector, particularly when storing heavy or hazardous materials. Our material storage equipment is engineered to meet stringent UK health and safety regulations, thereby mitigating risks and ensuring a safe working environment.

This commitment to safety protects your workforce and reinforces your company's compliance with legal obligations, safeguarding against potential liabilities.

Things to consider:

Selecting the right Material Storage Equipment involves several key factors:

  • Material Types: Assess the materials you need to store to determine whether containers, shelving, or racking systems are most suitable.
  • Expandability: Consider if the material storage equipment offers extendable options like racking extension bays to accommodate future expansion.
  • Weight Capacity: Ensure the chosen storage equipment can support the weight of your materials, providing a safe and durable solution.
  • Health and Safety Compliance: Factor in any specific regulations applicable to your storage needs, particularly for storing hazardous substances.
  • Liquid Storage: Liquids such as Oils and Chemicals need to be stored with containment provisions such as bunding.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I ensure my storage setup complies with UK health and safety standards?

Choose material storage equipment designed with compliance in mind and consider specific regulations related to your materials, such as spill containment for liquids.

Ensure the specified weight capacity of your shelving and racking is considerably more than the materials you intend to store on it.

What material storage equipment is best for small components?

Small cardboard or plastic containers are ideal for organising and storing small parts, making them easily accessible and manageable.

Our range also includes Euro containers, which are stackable, making them convenient and accessible storage products in all kinds of work environments.

Can I customise my material storage equipment to fit my workspace?

Many of our material storage equipment offer modular designs and extendable options, allowing you to tailor the setup to your specific workspace requirements.

For example, most metal frame shelving kits have adjustable shelves, and the arms on cantilever racking can also be adjusted to accommodate different material types.
