As the name suggests, long span shelving is steel shelving that spans a long distance (typically from 1 to 2.5 metres). It is designed for the long-term storage of items that don’t require the rugged, heavy duty storage capacity of pallet racking that is needed to store very heavy items and withstand mechanical handling.
The open nature of heavy duty, long span shelving and its adjustability makes it one of the most efficient storage systems for items that are: small to medium in size and weight, bulky, fragile or irregular in shape, long and broad, and that can be loaded onto the shelves by hand. It also provides easy to access to stored items from both sides.
Our adjustable, long span shelving units are the perfect solution for storing: cartons, plastic tubs, component parts used for manufacturing, automotive and other spare parts, tools, toolboxes, electrical equipment, plumbing equipment, sporting equipment, hardware, bulky goods, inventory items and archive storage.
Our long span shelving comes in a full range of weight capacities, colours and sizes that will suit almost any heavy duty storage situation (see table below).

Our heavy duty, long span shelving units are modular, so you can buy one unit on its own or buy a series of units to scale up to the storage capacity of a warehouse. All the units within a particular weight capacity are connectable, so you can join a series of shelving units into a connected row of shelving. This connectability also applies to the heavy duty workbenches in our 1200Kg range, which can be joined directly to a normal, long span shelving unit.

The component parts of our long span shelving units are constructed from welded steel and are powder coated for durability. Rather than being MDFm the shelves or decks are powder coated steel that is reinforced underneath for extra strength. The uprights come as one, solid pre-welded piece for maximum load bearing.
Our heavy duty, long span shelving units are “boltless” and are designed to be DIY assembled easily without tools, screws, nuts or bolts. The orange beams slide into grooves on the outside of the blue uprights and the white decks simply slot onto a ledge on the inside of the beams.
Long span shelving is very long lasting and can be added to and reconfigured throughout it's life, as your storage needs change.
Being easy to assemble means our heavy duty shelving units are also easy to disassemble and reconfigure as required. This makes the units easy to adjust as your shelving needs change or to transport and reconfigure if you need to move.
You can specify the number of shelves per bay and also adjust each shelf level up and down to accommodate the various sized items you are looking to store. This lets you optimise your storage space, as the gaps between each shelf don't all have to be the same. Having adjustable shelving means you can have a large gap for bulky, heavier items at the bottom and then a smaller space between the shelves above.
Our heavy duty, long span shelving is modular, so you can buy whatever you need to expand your storage area, whether it is a single upright or an entire row of shelving. This means as your storage needs change you can always get what you need to reconfigure your shelving.
Our shelving units are sturdy, when free standing. However they can also be fastened to the floor via the pre-drilled holes in the footplates for extra stability, safety and security.
Falcon Shelving offers a three year replacement warranty for manufacturing or material defects in any of its products. This warranty does not cover fair wear and tear.
We understand that purchasing shelving is not always a simple straightforward decision. There are many variables: how many shelves should there be, how can I maximise the storage capacity and workflow in my defined space. Accordingly, we offer a range of services to complement our product range.

We provide a free drawing service to help you plan the most efficient layout of your storage space. It is often helpful to get your initial thoughts down on paper to ensure that you have the capacity to store the items required and to ensure that the storage area is constructed to provide the best workflow for people and equipment.
As an example, we helped a client, who was fitting out a new storage warehouse. Starting with a hand-drawn sketch, we began to draw up a floorplan of the warehouse.
From the initial plan there were several iterations of changes as we went back and forth with discussions and ideas. The above diagram reflects the final configuration from which we created a list of components required and then a quotation for the job,
Our 1200Kg (300Kg/ level) range of heavy duty, long span shelving fits neatly into shipping containers, as a means of creating extra, heavy duty storage capacity.
As you can see in the example above, there is very little wasted space in the fitout.
All of our long span shelving units come with 4 levels or tiers of shelving as standard. However, being adjustable shelving, you can have from 2 to 5+ levels of shelving if needed. You can buy kits for extra levels of shelving separately if you need 5 tiers of shelving or build your unit from component parts, if you need 2 or 3 levels of shelving.
Always begin with a Starter Bay (2 blue uprights). You can then attach one or more Addon units (one blue upright) to form a connected row of shelving.
