Longspan Shelving

Longspan Shelving Maximises Possible Storage Capacity

Long span shelving is shelving that can span a great length or have the capacity to be extended to great lengths, being an excellent storage solution. The shelving is predominantly designed for warehouses where goods are deposited and removed manually from the shelves. However, robotic options are also available.

The modular shelving design provides fast and easy assembly, and you can achieve the maximum possible storage capacity regardless of your available space. In addition, the shelving system allows for the easy configuration and adjustment of storage heights to meet your changing requirements, providing a system that moves and changes with you.

The long span system optimises warehouse height and can create two-tier high-rise and mobile shelving installations. To access the higher levels, devices that can lift the operator to the required height, such as stacker cranes or order-picking forklift trucks, can be utilised and gangways between shelves.

We provide two excellent solutions for long span shelving depending on your load capacity requirements.

  1. A medium-duty long span shelving solution for higher weight requirements using our shelving system with excellent stability and high load capability.

  1. A light-duty long span shelving. The inventive use of lightweight materials, formed into sophisticated profiles, provides exceptional strength from lightweight components. This provides the highest quality product and offers a solution to all light-duty shelving requirements.

The light-duty long span shelving is the most popular as it increases inventory capacity in existing storage zones and maximises space utilisation of valuable floor space. A boltless, modular shelving system for unrivalled application diversity that is easily adjusted and reconfigured to suit changing product lines.

It provides easily adjustable shelf levels with 50mm pitch intervals and a wide range of unique accessories for increased storage efficiency. The shelving can be mesh decking, particle board or metal surfaces.

Engineer-certified steel ensures a shelving system is designed to last a lifetime.

For heavy-duty long span shelving, please review our pallet racking options. Our long span shelving can be easily configured to suit your requirements, and numerous applications are available, whether you are expanding your facilities or upgrading an existing storage shelving system. Long span shelves are a highly practical solution for multiple applications, including:

  • Warehousing: storing bulky or heavy items such as boxes, equipment, and machinery parts.
  • Retail: displaying products such as clothing, electronics, or hardware items.
  • Archiving: Offices and businesses often use long span shelving to store archived documents, files, and records.
  • Manufacturing and Industrial Facilities: storing raw materials, components, and finished products.
  • Food Storage: appropriate coatings or materials can be used to store non-perishable food items in commercial kitchens, pantries, or food warehouses.

Long span shelving provides access to all stock safely and quickly, with minimal staff movement. This, in turn, increases productivity, fulfilment accuracy, and throughput rate.
