Shelving Systems and small parts handling

Longspan Shelving

  • 8th July 2015

Dexion Longspan shelving is fast and easy to assemble and uses a modular design that provides the maximum storage capacity, no matter what space is available.

The Longspan shelving system allows for the easy adjustment of storage heights and configurations as your requirements change.

The Longspan system incorporates a wide range of frame and beam sizes making it simple to customise an installation that meets your exact needs. Medium and long span bays can be combined in the same rack for the efficient storage of a wide range of different items. A bolt free lock-in system ensures that once the support beams have been located, they remain in position improving safety for operatives accessing the installation.

Dexion Longspan shelving frames are bolted for strength and reliability and are available in a large combination of widths and heights. from 2m to 5m high and from 0.45m to 1.2m width.

Uprights are only 55mm wide which ensures that the space not available for storage is kept to a minimum. Longspan beams are capable of supporting either chipboard decking or steel shelf panels and are ‘stepped’ to provide a snag free front face. Adjustable in height on 50mm increments, beam sizes range from 1m to 3m in two different duties.

Longspan frames and beams are powder coated anthracite and grey white so Dexion Longspan is equally at home in either the warehouse or office environments.

Longspan can be configured for a number of different applications ranging from low level hand loaded shelving to a high rise system serviced by powered order picking trucks.
