Product Description

Racking kit to fill one side of a 20ft shipping container

This heavy duty racking kit will fill up one long side of a 20ft shipping container. This is a high quality, easy to build system that comes with full instructions. It should take 2 people approx 10 minutes to build each shelving unit.

This is only an example setup. We have a huge range of different shelving types (including white melamine, food grade stainless steel shelving and wire mesh shelving) as well as a huge range of different size and height options for each shelving type – so if you are after something a little more personalised please contact us as we can always price up a bespoke shelving package for you.

Our range of shipping container racking features heavy-duty shelving and is ideal for making the maximum usage of the container space. The easy assembly design of this shelving means you’re not wasting time fiddling around with nuts and bolts, all you need for assembly is a rubber mallet. These kits are very simple to build or install, we have a lot more detail on this in our online instruction manual for building our shelving kits.

You can also see more on our shelving units and how to build them in this video:

Shelves have a pitch adjustability of 38.1mm allowing you to space your shelves to suit most requirements. Shelf 4 is always placed at the top of the uprights to ensure stability so, if you require 5 or 6 shelves on your units this is very possible for a small additional cost. Please make this clear to us when ordering or confirming prices.

Assembly instructions are provided along with tie-plates so each bay can be tethered to its neighbour for improved stability.

Our 20ft racking option 1 is designed to go down one side of a 20ft shipping container. For this, we recommend 3 racking bays that are 1980h x 1830w x 455d (mm) in size.

Total racking length for 3-bays of 1830mm wide shelving is 5490mm leaving around 410mm of space and the cargo door end. Please be advised these dims are based around standard ISO container dimensions, there is some leeway in the internal space of shipping containers (typically only 5-10mm) but if your planning something down to the mm please let us know and we can always double check any container lengths we are supplying for you to ensure the right fit.

Other racking options for a 20ft container include racking kit 2 which runs down both sides of the container and racking kit 3 which runs down both sides of the container and across the non-door end too.

600kg UDL is for a Uniformly Distributed Load per shelf.
