Bespoke universal column spreader I-section beam to overcome constraints of the warehouse floor complete with 350 x 6mm welded plate directly bolted through asphalt into concrete sub-base.


Wide aisle pallet racking system utilising reach truck forklift increasing efficiencies over bulk stacking with faster pallet selection.


Flexibility to accommodate any standard or non-standard palletised load providing a wider range of storage solutions for clients.


4,750 pallet capacity with 12,000kgs bay load.


Associated products including end of rack barriers, post protection & labels installed.

I am writing to you to express our appreciation for the outstanding quality of the installation of the racking at our warehouse in Tilbury. I particularly want to thank Adrian, Gavin and Jock who worked with us to minimise disruption and to deliver the end result ahead of plan.


We are not big warehouse operators and this was our first experience of racking a warehouse. I have no doubt that we will become warehouse operators as part of our logistics solution to our customers in the future, and I look forward to working with your organisation again.
