How does it work?


There are 3 main components consisting of upright beams, shelving beams and the shelving panels. Depending on the shape, size and weight of what you are storing the bays and shelving panels can be adjusted to accommodate your needs. Additional accessories are available to suit your needs, such as hangars for garments. . The shelving can stand alone or be integrated to the bottom of existing pallet racking.

The option to utilise Vertical Space?


Increase storage capacity within a limited footprint area by building your long span shelving taller with fixed upper level floors and staircases for access. This is ideal if you have high volume storage needs and not enough floor space but height space is sufficient. For warehouses with a storage mezzanine floor, long  span shelving is commonly used to store items on the upper level so the ground floor beneath can be utilised in other ways

Who uses Long Span Shelving?


Long span shelving can be used in a wide spectrum of businesses with a variety of purposes. For example; garages often use long span shelving to store tyres, where as offices would use them for archive storage. A warehouse may have some none palletised items for which long span shelving would be used, and schools and collages may use them for books and files. Long span shelving is very versatile and can be used in any environment which requires a hand loading easy to use system.
