Mobile Pallet Racking and Mobile Shelving Solutions

 Effective storage systems are designed to provide efficient storage and retrieval ideal for specialised storage applications such as archives. That’s why every mobile shelving system will give excellent accessibility, whilst maximising the use of floor space for storage.

 Mobile shelving is effective in saving space by eliminating the need for several aisles. Mobile racking & shelving moves along floor tracks, meaning that space for only one aisle is needed. When an item is required, the particular shelving bay is identified and an adjacent aisle is created by moving the mobile shelving units apart. Mobile shelving is operated by pull handles or hand operated mechanical systems.

Roll-a-side mobile shelving is useful in small offices or awkwardly shaped areas, such as corridors or alcoves. Shelving is mounted on low profile mobile bases and tracks and are simply rolled aside the reach the behind units.

Mezzanine Flooring Systems, Multi-Tier Shelving

Mezzanine Flooring Solutions / Multi-Tier Storage Systems

Mezzanine floors and multi-tier storage systems are the fastest and convenient way to add extra floor space to your existing warehouse. It is significantly cheaper than structural alterations. Mezzanine flooring offers an innovative space saving solution in an existing building without the cost and inconvenience of modifying or relocating premises. West Pennine Storage Equipment Limited’s mezzanine flooring solutions provide safe easy access to increased storage capacity from your existing footprint. 

We will fit your warehouse with a complete mezzanine floor installation meeting all applicable building regulations. We can also provide you with all the relevant warehouse accessories to make sure your new storage space is fully functional and works best for you.

Industrial mezzanines

An industrial mezzanine floor will provide additional intermediate floor space in your building. If you have a high ceiling building with open space, why not increase office and / or storage space in your existing building by installing a professionally designed and constructed mezzanine floor?

In industrial settings, mezzanines may be installed (rather than built as part of the structure) in high-ceilinged spaces such as warehouses. These semi-permanent structures are usually free-standing, can be dismantled and relocated. Industrial mezzanine structures can be supported by structural steel columns and elements, or by racks or shelves.

Drive-In Pallet Racking Systems

Drive-in Racking


Using minimal space to  access aisles and lanes; drive in racking provides a high-density and very space efficient bulk storage system for storing large quantities of the same goods behind or above one another using the First in Last Out (FILO) principle.

Fork lifts load pallets onto rails or channels, so that the first pallet into a lane is moved to the back of the aisle to be the last out. With higher storage per cubic metre than any other system type; Drive-in is very suitable for applications such as food cold storage where limited stock rotation is required.

The system lends itself to high volume movements of low value products where handling costs are a large percentage of the overall product cost.

Narrow Aisle Racking

Narrow Aisle Racking

By allowing fork lift trucks to operate in aisles of up to half the width required in conventional adjustable beam pallet racking, Narrow Aisle and very Narrow Aisle racking makes excellent use of floor space and maximizes the height at which goods can be stacked.

 Using specialised lift trucks in either ‘man-down’ or ‘man-up’ variants, narrow aisle racking is precision designed for safe, efficient load handling within the tight confines of these efficient aisles.

Using specially designed Narrow Aisle trucks this handling solution can be highly automated using wire or rail guide systems.
