Types of Racking And Shelving For Industrial Use

When it comes to choosing the right kind of racking and storage for industrial use, its best to consider all of your options, here’s a look at some of the best types of racking and shelving solutions for industries in the UK.

Dexion P90 Pallet Racking System

One of the most popular storage types of pallet racking: This traditional model of pallet racking offers unlimited access to all pallets. Pallets stored in wide aisle racking are not subject to any layout constraints and are therefore readily accessible. The traditional pallet racking system is still the most common method of pallet storage, even in a state-of-the-art warehousing operation.

Pallet racking can be mounted in single or double depth racks and is highly valued by industry & logistics companies. The Dexion P90 racking is available in heights of up to 30 metres and in varying depths and widths. It can fit perfectly into available space and is ideal for all pallet styles – Euro, Chep, disposable or captive pallets, mesh boxes or bins.

Pallets stored in wide-aisle racking are not subject to any layout constraints but are still freely accessible using the Dexion P90 racking system.

The Dexion Speedlock MK3

One of the most common and most widely used pallet racking systems worldwide. Though now superseded by Dexion P90 Pallet Racking, the full range of Speedlock Mk3 pallet racking components and accessories continues to be available. The speedlock MK3 allows for movement of parts and to attach new bays and aisles to existing pallet racking systems.

Dexion P90 Silverline Pallet Racking System

The updated ‘ I ‘ beam profile provides environmentally friendly production, improved label visibility and increased warehouse protection while also providing the same high quality, excellent performance and productivity that all Dexion Products have come to expect.

The P90 I-Beam has built-in flexibility, efficiency and reliability.

The P90 has been designed to follow the stringent specifications of all EU regulations and to also comply with UK SEMA practise codes for pallet racking.

Regardless of the type of pallets you use, Euro-pallets, Chep pallets, disposable pallets, wooden or plastic pallets, mesh box-pallets

or containers – the P90 I-Beam will still be able to fit width, depth and height to the formats needed. The warehouse’s space can also be used as optimally as possible, with heights from 1.5 m to up to 30 m available.

They can accommodate heights up to 15m in single piece uprights.

The beams of the P90 “I” Profile give users a range of advantages.

The other angled profile has excellent label visibility at high or low levels, with labels directed to the user.

The I-beam was initially designed for the automotive industry and used a state-of-the-art ‘ Tox ‘ link system. It uses a combination of punch and die to tie the beam section and end connector together, creating a robust and stable joint from the metal of the parts, making a bond as solid as any welded seam without the environmental issues involved.


Cantilever Racking

Cantilever racking doesn’t have front uprights in the way loads are mounted and retrieved. Cantilever racking systems’ flexibility makes it suitable for all types of work environments: from handcrafted to industrial manufacturing, and from DIY shop to a retail distributor.

Cantilever racking can be utilised in single-sided and double-sided setups. The double-sided rack on a single central column has full storage space while the single-sided rack is designed to fit perfectly against a wall.

When storage requirements change, new arms, uprights, and braces can be added to be flexible in design. Cantilever racking is suitable for storing long and awkward items such as steel plates, pipes, tubing, timber packs, furniture and even white goods. The goods are placed horizontally on the arms and handled either manually or with a truck or crane forklift
