    Cantilever Racking System

    Wickens were recommended to us by a local fork lift truck company who had worked with the company in the past, so we invited them to visit our site to discuss requirements with the warehouse team. They recommended a cantilever racking system which made the best possible use of the available floor to ceiling height, while also taking into account fork lift truck capacity and access for fire doors and entrances. We asked three racking companies to quote for the job and Wickens were the most competitive. The fact they also manufacture all the racking components meant I was confident they could provide a solution to meet our needs. The difference the new racking has made to the warehouse is significant. We are now making the most of the space available to us and can store products of different lengths more easily, meaning our business is operating more efficiently and safely.

    We approached Wickens to design a storage solution for our lighting columns. We are pleased with the end product which has allowed us to maximise the limited space available, the site area looks a lot tidier and this will improve the working environment for our operatives.

    byBob Lynock, Yard Manager at Smart Space Tamworth onCantilever Racking Systems

    The new racks have created so much more space - it’s a great improvement. Before we couldn’t even get the truck into the yard! The racking has definitely done what we hoped it would – it saves me a lot of time.

    Wickens know our business and we have always received excellent service. They worked with us and our subcontractors to design the best possible solution.
