Product Description

Shelving Kit to fill one long side of a 40ft Shipping Container

This shelving kit is designed to fit out one full long side of a 40ft container, however we do have a plethora of racking options including different widths, depths, heights, and different constructions of shelving units to offer from, so if you’re looking for something a little more bespoke please do contact us.

This range of shipping container racking features super sturdy 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. Full instructions on how to build these shelving units can be found in our online instillation guide for our shelving units.

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 per unit, please make this clear when ordering as this is available at a very small additional cost.

Full assembly instructions are provided along with tie-plates so each bay can be tethered to its neighbour for improved stability. This is an easy to build unit that requires no special tools or engineering qualifications to construct. 2 people should take approx 20 minutes to build each unit. You can also see our brief video showing our heavy duty racking units and how to build them:

Our 40ft racking option 1 is designed to go down one side of a 40ft shipping container. For this, we recommend 6 racking bays that are 1980h x 1830w x 455d (mm) in size.Each unit comes with 4 chipboard shelves but we can supply with up to 6 shelves if required.

Other racking options for a 40ft 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.

Each shelving unit as a massive 600kg UDL (Uniformly Distributed Load) max capacity per shelf, Ensuring the best possible flexibility of use for a huge range of potential applications.
