Shelving kit to fit both long sides of a 20ft shipping container
Our shelving kits have been designed to make the most of the internal storage space within your shipping container whilst allowing you enough free space within the container to easily access your stored items. Kit 2 fits down both long sides of a 20ft shipping container. Kit 1 fits down one long side of the container and kit 3 runs down both long sides and across the front-end (the end opposite the cargo doors) of the container.
We offer 3 shelving capacity options to suit your requirements and budget; these are:
Heavy-duty racking – up to 720kgs maximum capacity per shelf*
Medium-duty racking – up to 340kgs maximum capacity per shelf*
Standard-duty racking – up to 265kgs maximum capacity per shelf*
*please click on the technical tabs, above, for additional information about each range of racking.
As standard, we supply our racking kits with a blue/orange finish and chipboard shelves. Our heavy-duty racking comes with 4 shelves as standard with our medium and standard duty shelving coming with 5 shelves per bay as standard. On all our kits, the upper and lower shelf must be placed at the bottom and top of the racking to ensure stability.
All products are delivered unassembled.
Our racking is easily assembled (2 people required) using just a heavy-duty rubber mallet. There are no nuts and bolts.
Our easy to follow instructions are included and each bay will take 2 people about 40 minutes to build. See our online instruction manual for building our shelving kits.
Our range of shipping container racking is ideal for making the maximum use of the space within your shipping container. The easy assembly design of this shelving means you’re not wasting time fiddling around with nuts and bolts. If you’d like to see more about how these shelving kits are built, please feel free to check out our online instruction guide on building our container shelving kits.
We also have this short video showing our standard racking option and how the units are built:
The ‘price from’ shown above is for the standard-duty racking.
Our 20ft racking option 2 is designed to go down two sides of a 20ft shipping container. For this, we recommend 3 racking bays per side that are 1980h x 1830w x 455d (mm) in size.
Supplied with 4 heavy duty chipboard shelves per bay as standard, our shelving kits are easy to assemble and just require two people and a rubber mallet to assemble the units.
Total racking length for 3-bays of 1830mm wide shelving is 5490mm leaving around 410mm of free wall space at the cargo door end.
These shelving units offer a huge 600kg UDL (Uniformly Distributed Load) per shelf, ideal for a wide range of industrial, commercial or domestic applications and with such huge capacity these will offer maximum flexibility in the future.
This kit is only a suggested setup, we have a plethora of shelving options including wire mesh shelving, galvanised food grade racking and a huge variety in the heights, widths and depths of individual shelving units. If this options doesn’t quite cover your needs please contact us as we can often offer similarly competitive prices on bespoke setups.
Our racking kits are designed for standard ISO containers. If you have any other size of unit, please let us know and we’ll design a kit suitable for your container. Please note – Whilst standard ISO shipping containers must adhere to the ISO specification externally, internal dimensions can vary slightly. It’s vitally important that you advise us if your container is not an original ISO Shipping Container i.e. it may be an anti-vandal store or a container that’s been produced by cutting down a larger container.
Other racking options for a 20ft container include racking kit 1 which runs down one side of the container and racking kit 3 which runs down both sides of the container and across the non-door end too.
Shelves have a pitch adjustability of 38.1mm (40mm on standard-duty shelving) allowing you to space your shelves as required. Shelf 4 (or 5 depending on the grade of racking purchased) is always placed at the top of the uprights to ensure stability with the lowest shelf placed 4 – 6 notches up from the floor. If you require additional shelves, please make this clear on your enquiry as we can add in additional shelves for a very small extra cost. We also include tie plates with our kits to help secure each bay to its neighbour for added stability.
For darker areas and to illuminate shelves why not consider our motion sensing lighting.
Whilst we do accept returns, you must re-pack all the materials supplied back on to the original pallet and securely wrap it. You will be charged for the initial delivery.
Heavy-duty racking – ideal for most industrial uses.
