1. What is Longspan Shelving

Longspan Shelving has a similar design to industrial pallet racking. It specifically consists of end frames, beams and shelves which are available in a variety of shelf materials. You will find it used in industrial environments as it has a larger shelf range and is typically stronger than other styles of office shelving. Heavy Duty Longspan Shelving suits both small and large bulky products alike due to its long spans, deep shelves and open style racking design. Space Rescue are a supplier of both new and used Longspan Shelving for sale in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth & Brisbane.
