Here is a simple buying guide that will give you all the basics you need to confidently make your purchase decisions. If you already know what you are looking for and would like to shop our range, simply click here to get started.
The image below shows our range in a nutshell. It includes all-steel longspan shelving, tyre racking, workbenches and retail shelving.
Our products are made from quality steel and we pay extra attention to the powder coating, so that your investment will last.
Falcon Shelving's products are suitable for: residential garages, workshops, retail outlets, commercial offices, home based offices, storerooms, and rental storage facilities amongst others.
An explanation of our longspan range of products is a good place to start, as many of the topics are common to all the products.
Longspan shelving is suitable for the general purpose storage of boxes, cartons, plastic totes, archive files and other long or bulky items. An advantage of this type of shelving is that items can be accessed and loaded from both sides.
A standard unit of longspan shelving comes with 4 levels as shown below.
Levels can be easily added, removed or adjusted up and down, as required.
|Width||2.0m High||2.4m High||2.7m High|
Importantly, there are two types of longspan units:
Our longspan units can be easily connected together into a row to expand the available storage area.
Making a row of shelving is simply a matter of beginning with a Starter Bay and connecting as many Add-on Bays as you need. See image below.
|Starter Bay||Addon Bays||Row|
Each Starter Unit of longspan shelving is made up of 4 bundles of components in the quantities shown below. All the components are made from quality steel and the uprights, beams and decks are powder coated for extra durability.
|Number per Unit||2||8||8*||16|
* 1m wide units need only 1 deck per level
An Add-on Unit will have the same set of components, minus one upright. The beams of the Add-on Unit are designed to attach to the upright of an existing Unit to form a row of shelving. Importantly, the width of a Starter + Addon will be slightly less that the width of two Starter Bays by the width of the upright that has been saved (about 8cm for 300Kg/ level Heavy Duty Units).
The design of our longspan units allows extra levels to be added or levels taken away, as required.
Adding an extra level is simply a matter of purchasing 2 extra beams, 2 extra decks and 4 locking pins. These components are available as "Extra Level" kits on our website.
The position of each level is easily adjustable to accommodate different sized items (see image below)
Each of our longspan units is rated in terms of the maximum, uniformly distributed load that can be stored on each shelf level. There is also a maximum load capacity for the unit as a whole. We offer a range of load capacities from 120Kg per level to 300Kg per level.
We have a standard duty range of longspan shelving (white in colour) that is designed for loads of 120Kg and 200Kg per level (see image below).
Falcon Shelving's simple slot together system makes DIY assembly easy. No tools are required. The orange cross beams simply fit into the grooves on the blue uprights and are secured with a steel locking pin (see image below).
Workbenches are an integrated part of our longspan range of products. They can be used as a stand alone unit or they can be connected together with workbench addons just like the regular longspan products. Importantly, they can also be easily connected to regular longspan units as required. Just think of them as short longspan units with two levels (see image below).
In terms of dimensions, they are 0.95m high and come in widths of 1.0m, 1.5m, 2.0m and 2.5m,
Each workbench is made up of:
You can adjust shelf height and add extra shelves, just like a regular longspan unit.
While we do not hold stock of retail shelving, we can supply all your retail shelving requirements on a "make to order" basis. Our range includes standard sizes of pegboard gondola, mesh gondola and outrigger shelving (see examples below).
We can also custom manufacture shelving to your specification, for orders of 30 or more units.
Lead times are typically 6-8 weeks following sign off on an order and payment of a 40% deposit.
