When Contactum embarked on a significant move from Watford to a new site in Dunstable, our team rose to the occasion. We took on the task fully aware that the folks at Contactum didn’t want a repeat of their previous site. Instead, they wanted to magnify their operational capabilities. In the past, we had previously supplied Contactum with their material handling equipment. Yet, this project marked our first venture into racking solutions for Contactum. Our proposal stood out from our competitors for its attention to detail and integration of trucks specified by Contactum’s team.

Our expertise in MHE and storage solutions brought a new dimension to this partnership. We installed over 3,000 racking locations to help facilitate seamless future expansion for Contactum. The installation was not only executed flawlessly, but it also adhered to the project’s timeline and budget. Better still, our installation team effectively delivered the racking in phases. This allowed Contactum to transfer stock from its old site and mitigate logistical pressures. However, this strategic move didn’t just ensure a smooth transition. It kept their operations uninterrupted and paved the way for their continued growth.

To summarise, the installation was successfully achieved on time and within budget. Our collaboration showcases our commitment to precision and client satisfaction. This was underpinned by our phased handovers, which enabled a smooth transition. This minimised any disruption and facilitated Contactum’s continued operational excellence. This project exemplifies our ethos of delivering bespoke and future-proof material handling solutions. It not only highlights the synergy between our bespoke solutions and their operational needs. It also showcases our shared commitment to excellence and safety.

Pallet Racking

Locators designed and installed state-of-the-art pallet racking systems. Our system helped maximise storage and accessibility by providing over 3,000 storage locations. This not only met Contactum’s current needs but also accommodated future expansion. The design is a testament to our ability to create tailored solutions that enhance efficiency and space utilisation.


Our pallet racking solutions offer unparalleled durability and adaptability. It aligns perfectly with Contactum’s operational demands and future expansion plans. What’s more, it’s engineered for durability and ease of access. Its implementation ensures a streamlined workflow and optimal storage density.

Pallet Racking

Adjustable pallet racking (APR) is such a sought after commodity, as it’s a low-cost system. Its modular design can also adjust to store different sized goods.
Barriers and Rack Protection

Barriers & Rack Protection

To avoid buckling the structure, Locators provide a number of protection solutions. These include upright protection, barrier systems and protection posts.

Barriers / Guards

We installed robust barriers and guards to ensure the safety and integrity of the storage area. In addition to protecting their inventory and equipment, it also ensures the safety of Contactum’s workforce. Installations like these are critical for maintaining a secure and efficient working environment. Plus, a safe and organised workspace dutifully aligns with Contactum’s standards for quality and safety.


Our barriers and guards are not only crafted from high-quality materials. They are designed to withstand the rigours of an active warehouse and help provide long-term protection and peace of mind. This reflects our commitment to safety and longevity in industrial settings.

Mesh Decks

Mesh decks were installed to augment the versatility and safety of the pallet racking system. The mesh decks we provide offer versatile, durable shelving options. Their design facilitates easy inventory visibility and enhances the safety of stored items. Their use helps ensure that Contactum’s products are stored under optimal conditions.


The mesh decks are engineered for strength and flexibility. Designed for heavy-duty use, they offer superior load-bearing capacity and ease of maintenance. They support a wide range of products, allowing easy cleaning and air circulation around goods.

Anti-Collapse Mesh and Partitioning

Anti-Collapse Mesh & Partitioning

Anti-collapse mesh and partitioning is a versatile solution that protects personnel in the event that goods fall from above by securing goods. 

Anti-Collapse Mesh

Incorporating anti-collapse mesh solutions aligns with Contactum’s commitment to workplace safety. This feature doesn’t just add a layer of protection against accidental stock dislodgements. It’s crucial for ensuring the safety of workers and stored goods. Any business can reduce the risk of inventory loss or damage by further securing the workplace environment.


The anti-collapse mesh is designed to be easily integrated with existing racking systems. Our solutions are customisable and ideal for various storage configurations. So you can ensure optimal safety for your business without compromising storage efficiency.

Refurbished Aisle-Master 15SE

On this occasion, we supplied three refurbished Aisle-Master 15SE trucks. Identical to those used at Contactum’s Watford site, this was a highlight of our project. However, these machines were tailored to Contactum’s specific needs. They were upgraded with taller masts to align with the new racking layout and equipped with fork-mounted cameras. This allowed for enhanced operational efficiency and safety.


The Aisle-Master 15SEs exemplify our commitment to providing high-quality, cost-effective material handling solutions. As stated above, these refurbished trucks mirror the specifications of Contactum’s previous fleet. However, they have been customised to meet the new facility’s requirements. This underscores our dedication to providing a client-centric service involving cost-effective solutions.



Articulated, narrow aisle forklifts are perfect for palletised goods, warehouse and logistics. Available in a range of lifting capacities, heights and engine options.
