If you browse our website or catalogue, it becomes immediately apparent that Action Handling supply a large range of items – over 12,000, in fact. Our shelving and racking options are very popular, with a variety of systems suited for use across different industries and applications, each with their own merits. From archived documents and food storage to nuts, bolts and large steel sheets, we have a shelf or rack unit to suit. Therefore, when it comes to choosing the right product for your needs, you need to check the features and specifications of each product to ensure it will fit your requirements.

Our archive-shelving units are designed to hold standard archive files and boxes (although we can also provide custom-made shelving on request). As most businesses need to keep transaction and financial records for a specific period of time, it is essential that these documents are kept secure while still being easy to access. 

If your business deals with heavy or bulky equipment, having safe and secure storage for large or heavier items such as engine parts and tyres is a fundamental part of staying organised. Heavy Rivet Racking offers value for money as well as incredible strength and rigidity. The system is simple to build with all parts being tapped together by a rubber mallet and joined by a heavy duty rivet and key hole slot - a simple and effective way to assemble the racking.

Certain types of shelving systems are designed for use in very specific locations or conditions. Units for deep freezers or cold storage are generally made from durable materials such as aluminium, chrome or plastic as these substances are highly resistant to corrosion and rust, making them ideal for cold, damp rooms or other extreme conditions. Often, the shelves themselves are formed from a perforated plastic able to withstand high-powered wash-downs and cleansing; this is indispensable in the food industry where hygiene is paramount. These holes also allow airflow around the unit which helps foodstuffs remain fresher for longer, which can be an effective cost-cutting resource for businesses on tight budgets.

These are just a few examples of the type of shelves and rack units we supply, so browse our website or catalogue for more information. And if you have a specific equipment size or requirement, simply contact our bespoke steel construction service and together we can design a solution.
