Longspan racking also known as wide-span shelving is the ideal heavy duty racking system for the practical storage of hand loaded items in warehouses, factories, workshops and large stockrooms.
Available in a diverse range of sizes, longspan shelves can be supplied in configurations to fit into just about any storage space. Longspan shelving is simply an upright and beam system with a choice of timber, mesh or steel decking. Timber is perfect for dry goods, steel for liquids to wipe clean and mesh for ventilation and sprinkler access if required.
Our Longspan system is all about strength with a three fingered wrap around friction claw connecting the heavy duty “Z profile” beams to the uprights. Unlike most of our competitors all levels are fitted with heavy duty deck supports as standard, ensuring the chipboard shelves carry the same capacities as the beams. Ours is also the only system where the deck supports clip into the beams offering even greater strength and performance as well as eliminating beam rotation.
If strength, performance and versatility are what you need then our heavy duty longspan shelving is the answer. As well as a wide range of sizes we can also provide steel decking panels, welded mesh panels, tyre racks, panel storage and garment rails.
Our Longspan system has been designed to provide economical storage whilst providing unrivalled strength and rigidity. The design offers an upright with a central tapered slot which gives a strong connection whilst being easier to install the beam levels. The beams are formed as a `Z` profile section with a 3 fingered claw, which can be adjusted on a pitch of 50.8mm (2”). All levels 610mm deep and over are fitted with deck supports to ensure the chipboard panels meet the beam capacities. The deck support locates into a slot in the beam which then holds the beams together and reduces any beam rotation. Each level is then fitted with high density chipboard panels. The system comes in an epoxy powder finish with blue uprights and orange beams.
