Stockroom racking and shelving
Good stockroom organisation starts with good shelving. Not only does it help with easy visibility and access, it keeps you and your employees safe – as well as protecting your stock.
Make sure you go for strong shelving for heavy duty products – remember, flimsy shelving will be a false economy in the long run.
Boltless shelving is easy to assemble and can be customised to suit your needs. With split level options, it’s a versatile solution for warehouses and providing you organise your stock evenly, it will keep you and your team safe and well-organised shift after shift.
Crafted from galvanised steel for super strength and sturdiness, you can opt for different colours and shelving options to lay out your stockroom in the way that works best for your business. Make the most of bulk buy offers available on our website for boltless shelving – just don’t forget to leave space for your staff to navigate around the racking and find what they need without obstructions.
Slatwall isn’t just for retail spaces! In fact, it’s a highly versatile and reliable way to store stuff in your stockroom too. Plus, it lends itself to good visibility and easy access – exactly what you need when organising your stockroom layout.
Space-saving and flexible, slatwall can be your secret stockroom saviour.
Storage boxes slot easily into your slatwall panels to keep small items neat and easily accessible.
Great for saving space, fixing storage boxes into your stockroom display can also help avoid accidents in your stockroom as you can keep walkways clear and tidy.
