Which Shelving System would be best for the products I store?

Depending on what you are looking to store will determine the type of storage system that you require. Whilst every business is unique in what you do, we all share a common value which is the space available to store our products etc. Therefore, these two factors play a big part in governing what shelving is necessary for your business.


There are two common types of shelving:

  • Long-span shelving
    If your business is looking to store hand loaded heavy or bulky items, long-span shelving is both effective and versatile, ideal for storing non-palatalised goods. This option offers flexibility and can be tailored to suit the product range you are storing.
  • Short-span (Small Part) shelving
    This type of shelving unit is commonly used within wholesale, warehouse and manufacturing environments for smaller hand loaded products. This system is fully adjustable to suit products of different heights and weights.

You may already have shelving bays but are running out of space available to store your stock.
