All Purposes Shelving

Shelving for a wide range of applications

Speedrax HD All Purpose Shelving is a wide access shelving system that offers the facility of chipboard shelves on spans from 1500mm to 2400mm. Uprights are produced from cold rolled 2mm steel strip to BS 1449. The unequal upright profile measures 42mm x 55mm. The 40mm slot pattern for beam and side brace connection is accessed from the reverse side of the upright, allowing adjustment when bays are joined together.
The main components of Speedrax HD are posts, beams and side braces (which locate on the frames by means of a simple but secure and effective connector), beam ties and chipboard shelves. The maximum bay load for Speedax HD is a massive 4250kg with beams at 1000mm centres and a maximum shelf load of 700kg (uniformly distributed load) for a 1500mm wide bay.

Garment Hanging

A simple but ingenious solution for the storage of flat-pack and hanging garments. The base shelf is a standard chipboard shelf for boxed items, the hanging rails are simply inverted beams. Beams can be returned to conventional orientation and used with chipboard shelves. The ratio of hanging levels to flat shelf levels is infinitely variable; as stock levels fluctuate, so can the shelving.
