West Pennine Storage Equipment Ltd


West Pennine Storage Equipment provide storage solutions for most problems presented to them; if they can’t find an answer to your storage problems, the likelihood is that there isn’t one.

Whether companies are in their infancy or growing exponentially, West Pennine have been and will there to provide the vital expertise that is needed to enable their customers to maximize the capacity of the area they set aside for storage of raw materials or finished product.

West Pennine Storage Equipment is nationally the best known as a supplier of racking:
the reason for this being that they have always provided a professional service, involving help and advice at the planning and design stage, rather than simply selling steel; an instance of their proficiency is that, when they supply the decks for carpet racking they are 4 metres (or 5 metres) in long in one piece rather than a jigsaw made up of 8’0” x 4’0’ sheets which they have seen done and which can cause all sorts of problems once a rack constructed this way is in use; alternatively, for customers who need ‘pigeon hole’ type shelving West Pennine have the expertise to divide a shelf into different widths of storage spaces if the customer so requires rather than uniform sections.

Linspace. More features for your money than any other shelving system.

Linspace is totally unique. The four way upright allows bays to be added in any direction - even on top of each other. This allows the system to be truly modular. The huge range of accessories then allows the user to exactly tailor the shelving to their needs.

•Modular Longspan - adds up to a 2m wide bay directly onto Linspace shelving to store bulk products.
•Motor part bays - again joins directly onto Linspace to accept awkward shaped products.
•Multi-tiers - from any single bay or Linspace purchased today - can be extended upwards to create two or three tier storage installations.
•Each bay will accept a massive loading of 945kg as standard.
•Any of these bays can be upgraded even further to accept a load of 1620kg.
•This means that you do not have to plan your storage around the heaviest product and should you have the need for strength in excess of 945kg you can simply add the upgrade kit to that single bay alone even within the same bay run.
The shelf options for 1000mm wide are available in either 135kg, 185kg or 270kg UDL. For 1250mm wide are available in either 100kg or 150kg UDL. Linspace has some unique options available: More storage with louvre panels. Increase the storage area simply and effectively join in louvre panels on the end or rear of bay runs. Use them with Linbins or the large range of accessories to create valuable extra storage space. Solid, weldmesh or plastic cladding is available for any side, rear or in between bays. Simple clips let you add cladding in seconds to any chosen bay.
