Whether or not you or renting or have bought your business premesis , we all know that in the current climate workspace especially in larger cities in the UK comes at an expensive premium.

This is why The Eastwood racking co can save you money and maybe enable you to obtain a smaller premesis by maximising space by using the correct racking to store your goods.

All of our racking systems are available in various heights , depths , and varying loading capacities. As floor space is at a premium it makes sense to go upwards , and incorporate as many picking levels within your shelving system as possible. Also its vital to differentiate different shelving for different products , don’t waste money using pallet racking to store light goods or longspan to store much heavier bulky goods.

All applications are different , for example boxed or loose products up to 175kgs per level or 265kg over a 90 cm span can be stored using our lighter  duty Clicka 175 boltless system or Clicka 265 for heavier applications up to 265kgs per level This is avalable in 30cm 40cm and 60cm depths and a standard height of 177cm.

These all come with a chipboard deck and are ideal for lighter everyday use.

Stepping up from the Clicka shelving system are the Rivet shelving systems which again are boltless and available in heights up to 305 cm with lengths from 80cm upto 244cm and depths from 30cm to 120cm.

Applications inc compartment bays where you can incorporate our plastic containers, to hanging shelves for garment storage or larger bays for archive or general storage. All rivet shelving bays come in shorter heights and can be  constructed as work benches , and can also be mobile with the addition of mobile locking castors. Stepping further up the scale is longspan racking our best seller. This system comprises of frames with bracing bolted in for extra strength. Uprights are available upto 3.5 metres and can be spliced together if higher frames are required typically up to 7.0 metres. Depths are available from 30cm up to 120cm. End frames are typically supplied in kit or (kd) knocked down form. End frames can be pre-assembled at a premium .

Decking on the longspan product is 18mm or 22mm pre-cut chipboard which sits snugly into the Z section profiled beam. Max load per individual level is 900kgs spread uniformly. The heaviest duty system in our range is Pallet Racking. As its name suggestes its main purpose is the storage of pallets at low to high level and loaded with a forklift truck , although in some cash and carry situations it is common to have lower hand picking levels with pallet storage above.

There are many combinations of pallet sizes and weights to consider so with this product please refer to our technical team for safety advice ie whats is the capacity of each level , where is the first level and how many levels are there etc etc. Within our range there are far more products to view , or if you prefer send us an enquiry request or call us and we can do the rest.

We offer free advice and site surveys by appointment. We look forward to receiving your enquiries however large or small ,we are confident to have a solution .

Id like to explain in simple terms the origins and history in which Rivet Racking evolved into the storage industry market and how it has changed the way we store our goods and products.

Historically and goods that could be stored and lifted manually were stored on what we now call generically Dexion shelving. A tried and tested nut and bolted shelving system consisting of 4 uprights and the appropriate no of shelves bolted together to form a bay or shelving unit. The length of shelves varied from 80cm-120cm  but usually 90cm x varying depths from 25cm to 90cm.

Once eventually constructed ,Dexion style shelves where strong and served their purpose well , however the flaws to actually install it compared to Rivet shelving eventually saw its downfall in the commercial sector , although its still available in various forms in the domestic market. So along came the 1990,s and the birth of Rivet shelving or Riveter in the US where it originated.

Rivet shelving essentially eliminated the use of nuts and bolts to construct the units. Instead the Rivet shelving system consists of slotted uprights and a profiled beam , typically fro 30cm long to a max of 244 cm long with widths from 30cm to 120cm. The beams have 2 large rivets in each end which secure into the uprights with a gentle tap of a hammer, and form the strength in the structure. This also applies to the depth. Once you have assembled a skeleton rivet shelving unit you can add either a chipboard or steel deck.

Bolted shelving would usually take 40 – 45 mins to construct a single unit. Rivet shelving can be assembled in a third of that time and furthermore the constraints on dimensions mean that you can install a single bay upto 244cm rather than 90cm. Loading capacities on Rivet shelving are extremely high upto 800kgs per level uniformly distributed. Rivet shelving is so versatile , and can be shortened to make rivet work benches and you can even add castors to make mobile rivet shelving bays or benches. Rivet shelving also has a value when used as its so simple and easy to dismantle and reinstall.

Dexion style bolted shelves were so labour intensive to dismantle that the cost to take down often equalled their used value, making rivet racking an investment for the future if your business grows or moves.

Please call our team for friendly advice and short delivery times on rivet racking from our vast stock.
