Longspan Shelving: The industrial shelving for warehousing and distribution
What is longspan shelving?
Strong and durable, longspan shelving is a hand-loaded shelf racking solution popular in facilities worldwide. Typically made of painted, galvanised steel, it is a modular shelving system made up of steel beams and completed with either chipboard or treated steel shelving plates. The metal shelving is rounded off to give a smooth finish facing the picking area to ensure the pick is easy and safe to do.
Typical uses of Industrial Longspan Shelving
Longspan shelving most commonly houses long, oversized, or obscure items thanks to its unrestrictive design and ability to be adapted and added. Small, bagged items such as fixtures and fittings are also ideal for this kind of racking; anything to be hand-picked would suit, and combined with Nene’s Shelf Partitioning System, the racking can be segregated and organised with ease. This kind of racking is essential to pick bays where the pick quantities may be low, but the SKU numbers are high, such as unrestricted medication.
Food & Beverage facilities can also benefit from long-span shelving for items that don’t require a forklift or machinery to pick them, small bottle packs, snack goods, and cartons – anything where the pick is manageable and stock isn’t dangerously high. You will also find longspan shelving in facilities where products or locations change regularly due to its adaptable design, making quick and easy changes for warehouse managers.
Longspan industrial shelving is an excellent option to store many different products and businesses. Whether you’re a 24/7 operation or a small business just starting, the simple, secure and adaptable design of this warehouse industrial shelving stalwart is a must-have for easy integration and adaptability in your facility.
