Customised workbenches

The secrets you need to know so you don't pay the earth for customised workbenches. There are cheap ways to customise workbenches, this is how to do it:


1. First mix and match standard components.


2. Then mix and match standard components from different sources.


3. Try to pick sizes which fit standard steel mill sizes - for less waste.


4. Do as much of the building as you can yourself.


5. Complex work needs layout & design drawings. Specials are not returnable!


6. Place product design in the hands of knowledgeable Engineers.


7. The best advice is from Paul Neal "Red Adair" (June 18, 1915- August 7, 2004) who was a renowned American oil well fire fighter. He said "If you think it's expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur".

D.I.Y Workbenches

DIY Workbenches – Why not build your own tough workbench?! Imagineer it! No welding, strong galvanised slotted angle, bolted construction makes anything. For example you could make workstations, workbenches, trolleys or shelving.  These DIY workbenches are the perfect solution for the DIY enthusiast.

How to make workbenches: Apply a value to the four uprights, e.g. 845mm to 915mm for a height and do the same for all the other lengths and widths etc. Add them up and work out cut lengths from the angle pack lengths and quantities. Nuts, bolts and stiffeners are sold in handy pack sizes.

For Extra Strength: Join the slotted 1.8mm thick angles together to form 3.6mm double strength load bearers for extra strong workbenches.

For a Professional Finish: Use the slots to fix timber, plastic, plywood or chipboard sides to produce workbenches for trade counters or serving hatches, simply add hinges to turn them into cupboards. The surfaces accept backing materials or paint for a real DIY designer job.

Tip: The angle packs make much more than workbenches. Construct partitioning, racks, hanging rails and much more. Some of the more unusual customer creations include pet enclosures, potting benches, compost heaps, log and wine racks and BBQ Stands!

Trucks & Trolleys


If you do not see exactly what you are looking for, we will design and build to your application, just call today.

A truck by definition is usually fitted with wheels as opposed to castors and generally, as distinctive from a barrow, has four wheels. The more usual association is with loads which cannot be handled readily on two wheels due to weight or volume.  They are easy to arrange for towing and, with selective wheel choice, work on rough yard conditions better than smaller wheeled items with lower cost of ownership tags. The exception of course is the pallet truck which is specific for palletised goods as opposed to loose goods. A useful addition to delivery equipment, the barrow enjoys a strong relationship with mechanised equipment from garden tractors to forklift trucks including heavy industrial towing units and can be built to handle loads from 100 kgs. to 100 tonnes. A few of the more common applications for industrial tasks are featured above


We have provide a great selection for you to choose from to purchase today. However if you require customised trolleys, tailor made to your task, to handle anything from garments, loose stock, individual components or combinations we can easily adapt standard trolley designs or alternatively manufacture something application specific.

Our equipment more than meets the minimum criteria and there are a range of industrial castors which can be interchanged to suit any application where you have specific conditions with which to deal.

Trolleys provide the ability to order pick, organise, transport, segregate or quarantine a product during any given process in the supply chain from raw materials through manufacturing, assembly and final delivery. They provide a stable platform with a range of flexible access systems, wheel control and steering facilities and there is linkable steering to allow towing for several units at a time. 

Dolly trolleys

Missing a link between packing and shipping? Any operation that is engaged with loading stock into smaller containers weighing up to 20 kgs, which can then be nested or stacked one upon the other, at some stage is going to require moving. 

Palletised bases are an obvious choice for bulk, but these are not always convenient for complex delivery drops or work in progress sortation operations. Another key application are ingredients which may be bench prepared and then required to be sent off to another location for onward work.

Dolly trolleys to take single stacks of the type of work eluded to above allow smaller aisle widths and far denser storage. The dolly trolley base is frequently fitted with suitable castors to allow for heavy loads, braking, tricky environments like textiles where there is snagging debris that would otherwise choke the wheels and stop them from rotating. Armed with an appropriate base on appropriate castors, the dolly trolley turns into a very productive bulk movement system allowing for completely safe transportation for up to 4 stacks at a time. Additionally these bases can and are frequently manufactured by us to interchange with forklifts or other mechanical handling devices for faster bulk transfer in larger volumes or by different equipment to further speed up loading and handling

Bogie trucks & Trolleys

The term 'bogie' relates largely to the wheeling arrangement. There is a strong association to track guided systems such as railway lines for the moving of ultra-heavy loads but bogie trucks and trolleys have a useful role to play in the workplace.

They have a reputation for extreme durability and are a good choice for working in heavy engineering environments where perhaps it is not desirable to operate other floor based equipment such as forklift trucks or pallet trucks.

The bogie is by definition a set of wheels which will work independently of the load they are carrying to guide it on a fixed location such as the railway line example.  However by arranging axles and castors in certain configurations, the reverse principle allows very tight steering or manipulation of heavy loads frequently in constrained environments, i.e. narrow aisles.  They also have a place in site applications for moving heavy pipes, pianos, carpets and stage scenery with agility not available by other means. They can also get to locations where heavier equipment would be unable to operate.

Wheelbarrow and barrows

Our wheelbarrows are still made here in the U.K, we will manufacture special wheelbarrow bodies and construct them around your application give us a call today to discuss. Most of the wheelbarrows are aimed at a horticultural environment but they work well in industry too. 

Wheelbarrows are about balance, the water swing wheelbarrow is a great example of balance. If you have temporary grazing in waterless locations or building work (cement) the water swing wheelbarrow will do a great job. 

The two wheeled wheelbarrow has a substantial platform which doubles as a good working surface when you are out and about.

This is a one stop material handling equipment shop for conveyors of all types.  You can buy a conveyor for moving rubble or parcels, handling food or packing and assembly operations. More importantly you can also buy everything else you need for your material handling equipment at the same time, acquiring a full system if you wish, giving you the edge in efficiency and productivity. Not all conveyors are easy to buy on line so please tell us about your conveyor requirement and we will guide you through your project.

Conveyor equipment, quite apart from being a large and very diverse industry in its own right, owes its success to the fact that the conveyor is the single, most productive bulk handling facility devised by mankind. Without the conveyor you would be paying at least 100 times more for your purchases, such are the costs eliminated by the conveyor. There are many conveyor formats, most of which we handle but far too many to list here.  Not all the conveyor types are buy online items but this is our opportunity to introduce the conveyor to you as the single most important material handling equipment item to save your legs, wheel barrows and forklift from repetitive strain injury! The conveyor is the work slave you need to assemble, pack and ship all repetitive tasks between or through processes. Gravity or roller conveyor is the obvious on line item to buy and we have made it really easy for you but please telephone us to discuss all your other material handling equipment requirements.  We offer free site surveys and 3 D drawings to accompany your quotation.

Steps and Ladders

All the steps and ladders in our material handling equipment range can be conveniently bought on line and delivered to you. We offer both standard and special designs for any task you have in mind. 

We specialise in industrial and commercial applications with a fully supported design and engineering facility to ensure you are always in knowledgeable, safe hands.

Steps must meet international and U.K. standards.  The cheaper the steps the less likely they are to be a suitable choice for commercial or industrial environments. You will not find cheap material handling equipment here at Engineered Solutions.

Make sure you choose your specific steps for your specific task. Fibre glass industrial steps for example do not conduct electricity.  Aluminium Platform steps have platforms for both tools as well as to stand on - never stand on a platform and hold on with your knees! Look for one with handrails like the warehouse safety steps. Finally always have at least three extremities in touch with your ladders in use and use the accessories for tools, extra stability platforms and safe multi tasking.   If you do not see what you are looking for here, please contact us.

Are Your Warehouse Steps Certified to EN-131?

There has been a change in the EN131 standard form from 1st September 2013 by the introduction of part 7.  EN131-7 has effectively incorporated the criteria of BGI637 standard into its scope.   Manufacturers have previously been able to say that there is no British Standard for warehouse steps but with this introduction, this is no longer true.  We are able to offer a vast range of U.K. manufactured steps which will be certified to this new standard.

As we are the only U.K. manufacturer of Safety Steps which are acrredited to the European GS standard, elements of these relevant standards are already incorporated into our designs and test criteria for all of our U.K. manufactured steps.  This is so we can ensure that the necessary levels of product strength, durability and stability are achieved.  Our manufacturing processes all take place under controlled conditions conforming to ISO:9001 ensuring product conformity is verified.

Forklift attachments

Save huge sums of money by turning your forklift truck into a multi-tasking tool box removing the need for you to buy other specialist material handling equipment and supporting structures. With a few simple, safe procedures you can triple the contribution a forklift truck makes with forklift attachments. We can also design and build fork truck equipment and hydraulic forklift attachments to your specific order.

For example, spreader beams are replaced with 4 fork forklift attachments for greater load stability for wide or long loads. Brick grabs easily adapt to become forklift attachments.  Carpet poles and coil handling booms make storage and stock retrieval a simple task. Effectively forklift attachments become cranes, jibs, access platforms, skips, long reach facilities and even snow ploughs and floor sweepers.

Hand forklifts

Our material handling equipment handles loads up to 1.5 tonnes, can reach heights over 5 metres and build tools and accessories to turn your hand forklift into a real tool box for your business.  No operator licences are needed.  Use them instead of lifts for mezzanine floor feeding (they are 5 times quicker, quarter the price and take 4 times the load).  

The hand forklift is a pedestrian controlled lifting device which not only handles pallets but also performs a range of lifting jobs to feed machinery and processes.  It also has the possibility of adaptation to specific material handling equipment jobs. For example we can fit the forklift with devices to push and pull heavy tools, handle heavy reels and manipulate, pour as well as rack off pallets. The hand forklift requires no special skills to operate and therefore does not require a licence so anyone can use it (with proper instruction). 

Above all the hand forklift is very affordable and is a complete tool set and perfect for van and lorry loading jobs as well as speeding up many other work place tasks.



Storage Systems

Stillages & Pallets

Stillages are just big collection bins, often made in steel and closely associated with factory or assembly work. Stillages always take up floor space so that is why here at Engineeered Solutions we make them stackable, foldable stillages and nesting stillages as well as a range of other options.

Fold down gates are frequently specified on stillages for access.  We make them demountable because stillages that flat pack are cheaper to ship back for reloading.

Want to save in fuel costs? Mesh sided stillages are lighter as are plastic stillages saving you thousands of pounds in fuel costs.

For work in progress we make wheeled stillages which still stack or half semi wheeled with a towing bar, known as tug lift stillages. Possibilities are only limited only by your own imagination.

The less you pay the less time it will last, but as a guide high quality plastics and steels last the longest, more than 10 years is not uncommon even in harsh environments.

Buildings & Fit Outs

Stainless steel equipment

At Engineered Solutions we manufacture trolleys, workbenches, cupboards, storage units and shelving in stainless steel. This includes our range of dolly trolleys and preparation tables which will work in food processing industries along with items such as stainless steel pallet trucks to move, store, handle and work on product. Stainless steel comes in a number of different grades, the lower grades provide a cleanable, wipe down and sterile facility. Provided the steel does not come into contact with other mild steel metal products it will retain its anti-corrosion properties and not rust and contaminate the process.  Where this could be conceived as a risk, we will manufacture all our trolleys, workbenches, cupboards and shelving from higher grade materials to comply with the environmental work place legislation. This includes medical and pharmaceutical.

Looking to save money? We can manufacture in combinations where we can use materials such as nylon to enable us to keep critical surfaces like worktops at the optimum grade of stainless steel, but manufacture the lower supporting structures.

The main benefits of industrial doors are their ability to protect specific areas from dust, fire, temperature variation and uncomfortable drafts. Industrial doors also act as traffic controllers and speed up processes by allowing traffic to move quickly between tasks whilst de-marking strategic areas of the business. Industrial doors and buildings are key to good organisation for material handling and site safety. Industrial doors include 9 themes here, either on their own or as part of your building or site plans. Well engineered industrial doors offer a low cost of ownership. All our industrial doors are selected for their outstanding value, service and reliability.

Loading bay

Our loading bay equipment is generally made to order but there are some standard aspects for raised docks and shelters, bumpers, chocks wheel guides and accessories. Our unique pantographic supporting steelwork lets us produce retractable loading facilities that will rotate round to allow a vehicle to dock at an angle to the building to free up yard space or dock even when a direct 90 degree approach is impossible. Just one of the many creative solutions to loading bay issues. Please contact us for a free survey or free design help with your application.

Loading bay installations require 3 key ingredients.

A level approach.
Raised docks for roll-on roll-off traffic, loading bay operations need to be at the correct height.
A door and this is an area of expertise in which we particularly excel.  We can build any sort of door you need.

If you don't have this sort of loading bay facility then our yard ramps may be the answer. Our shelters and tunnels protect product during loading bay operations where they are at ground level and the canopies or curtains can be made to skirt down to meet the ground to provide a protected work area. 

See also industrial tents, these are often used to completely cover yard space for loading bay operations.  We can help you with all your material handling equipment requirements so if you do not see what you are looking for please contact us, we are here to help you.
