Longspan Shelving Details

Longspan shelving is an ideal choice for hand-loaded storage of bulky or heavy items. Longspan shelves combine simple horizontal beams and vertical frames – similar to pallet racking – with the shelves supported on the beams.

In this system, shelf heights and accessories can be easily adjusted, making it well suited to storing products in small and varying quantities with split turnovers. The modular nature of the shelving makes it suitable to use in any storage application, whether that be within a warehouse, stockroom, or industrial workplace.

Longspan Shelving Technical Details

Main shelving structure technical description

Beams

Horizontal support bars that clip into the uprights of the frame. Beams can range in size from 950mm to 2700mm to suit loading up to around 1075kg per level. They are made from steel and formed to suit the design of the load.

Beam End Connector (BEC)

These are the steel brackets welded on the end of the support section that physically clip into the upright. Generally, these are 3 prong connections.

Frames

Vertical support structure comprising uprights, bracing and base feet. Frames come in heights ranging from 2000mmH to 5000mmH and Depths from 400mmW to 1200mmW.

Uprights / Posts

Vertical components to make up the frames. They are usually bolted but sometimes welded to bracing to make up the frame. The uprights are cold rolled from steel coils and have a series of folds to increase the strength.  There are many differing profiles of upright to suit the application and loading.

Bracing

Braces are the central steel components to a frame. They space out the uprights at a required distance and provide stability and strength for the frame. The braces are either horizontal (mainly used at the top and bottom) or diagonal.

Base Feet

These are components used to fasten the frame down to the floor and to spread the bay load.

Shims

To keep the racking level, these steel components are used under the base feet. They come in varying thicknesses to suit.

Locking Pin

Pin used to stop beams from being accidentally dislodged.
