Q: I am looking for flat steel pallets but wanted to know, can these be stored in racking? what is to stop the pallet sliding off the beams?
A: Thank you for your question. Yes, some steel pallets can be stored within pallet racking. If the pallets have base skids similar to the base boards of a timber pallet, then they can safely be stored in pallet racking. If however, they have pallet feet rather than skids, then it is likely that skid channel pallet supports will be required. Please give me a call for further details and prices.
Q: I see you offer euro cages? the size of these is slightly too small for me. Do you offer larger sizes like this? 120cm x 90cm would be better for me.
A: Yes, although the Euro Cage is traditionally 1200mm x 800mm, we do offer this style of stillage in other sizes. 1200mm x 900mm is no problem at all. We have made a lot of these for vineyards in a mix of sizes. Tell me what you want and we will try to help.
