Shelving Kit to fill both long sides and the front end of a 20ft Shipping Container
This racking kit as best as possible will fill out your 20ft shipping container with racking. It will fill both of the long sides and the front (non-door) end with shelving units. Some free space will remain but this is the best fit from available shelving sizes. These are genuine top quality heavy duty racks with a massive max capacity of 600 Kgs UDL per shelf
They come flat packed as a self build option. They won’t need any specialist tools or engineering qualifications to build. The easy to follow instructions are included and the only tool you will need is a mallet. Each rack will take 2 people approx 10 minutes to build.
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. 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 units and how to build them:
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-shelf bay, please make this clear o your enquiry as we can add in additional shelves for a very small extra cost. We also include tie plated with our kits to help secure 1 shelf to its neighbour for added stability.
Our 20ft racking option 3 is designed to go down two sides of a 20ft shipping container and the front (non-door) end. For this, we recommend 3 racking bays per side that are 1980h x 1830w x 455d (mm) in size plus 1 racking bay for the end that is 1980h x 1220w x 455d (mm) in size.
Total racking length for 3-bays of 1830mm wide shelving is 5490mm leaving around 410mm of space at the cargo door end. For this option, the non-door end rack is 1220mm wide to fit in a gap of 1440mm (assuming you place the start of the side racks against the non-door end panel) leaving around 200mm of free wall space.
The measurements quoted here are taken from our standard ISO dimensions. Internal dims on a shipping container can vary slightly but typically only a few mm. Its important to mention if your container is not an original ISO shipping container, (eg an anti-vandal storage unit, a container made by cutting a larger container down to size or a unit someone has built themselves) then internal lengths on the container can vary and we always recommend to double check your container length if you already own the container or are not buying the container from us. We do accept returns btu in that case we will charge for delivery & collection so we would rather avoid any potential snags in advance. If you’re unsure take some photos of the container and send them into us please and we can often advise very quickly what type of container you have.
600kg UDL is for a Uniformly Distributed Load per shelf. This does not mean you can load every shelf on a rack to the maximum capacity.
