Shelving kit to fit both long sides of a 20ft shipping container
This self-build shelving kit offers 2 long sets of heavy duty shelving units down both long sides of a 20ft container. It does not include a shelf across the non-door end (front end) wall of the container – if you want this extra shelf included please check out out kit number 3.
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.
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 a 5 or 6 shelves with your units this is possible for a slight additional cost, please let us know and we can firm up prices for you.
Assembly instructions are provided along with tie-plates so each bay can be tethered to its neighbor for improved stability. It will typically take 2 people approx 20 minutes to build each bay. We also have our online instruction guide if you’d like to check in advance how these are built.
We also have this short video showing our standard racking option and how the units are built:
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.
Please note the above measurements are correct for original / factory built / ISO shipping containers. Some people selling 20ft secure cabins may be selling something that is not a shipping container and it may have different internal dimensions. This is also the case with some refurbished (or used and repainted) 20ft containers that are made by cutting down a 40ft container to size. These units will commonly come with a circa 120mm variation in the length dimension only. However, if in any doubt please ask us or please measure in advance to double check that the kit on offer here will fit for you.
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.
