Racking & Mezzanines

Independent expertise and advice from Locators​

Shelving

Minimise travel distances with an orderly set-up. Our modern shelving systems are for lighter duty applications than pallet racking. They’re fully adjustable and can accommodate products of different heights. Maximise your accessibility with our modern shelving solutions.

Pallet Racking

Space is expensive, yet there’s always a need to store more within your available volume. This is why 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.

Live Storage Systems

In placing stored goods on rollers, you can speed up loading and reduce travel distances. It also allows for a greater depth of storage than standard storage systems. It’s ideally suited for holding or marshalling areas for finished goods awaiting despatch.

Anti-Collapse Mesh & Partitioning

Warehouses must remain a safe working space for you and your staff. Personnel not only need to be protected in the event that goods fall from above but those goods need to be secured. Anti-collapse mesh and partitioning is a versatile solution that achieves just that.

Barriers & Rack Protection

Whilst practical and space-efficient, racking can fall like dominoes if struck by machinery. To avoid buckling the structure, Locators provide a number of protection solutions. These include upright protection, barrier systems and protection posts.

Warehouse Labelling & Signage

Having worked in warehouses for over 3 decades, we know the best layouts for your warehouse. Plus, we only use the best materials for our products. For quick ease of use, we can install the labels to new racking or fit them to existing equipment.

Mezzanine

A perfect alternative for those businesses in need of expansion. Mezzanine floors maximise the spatial capacity of your current location. These floors have many applications, such as warehousing, retail, offices and production. They also free up space underneath.

Cantilever Racking

Cantilever racking does away with the traditional pallet racking format. This makes it easier for some businesses who may need to store longer loads. Despite the open nature of this racking, it’s still possible to make use of the space.

Rack Inspection & Maintenance

Our inspection service ensures your warehouse remains a safe working environment. Our SEMA approved inspectors will help to ensure that your storage equipment is in good order. Plus, we also offer training for your staff to carry out their own weekly or monthly assessments too.

What our clients say

We are very pleased with the change from an engine to an electric fleet. The trucks have been well received by our operators as they are comfortable and quiet to drive and give excellent protection from the elements. We even have the option and flexibility to use spare batteries and a simple battery change system if we ever want to work back to back shifts in the future. Locators also design, supply and install all types of racking and storage systems. They reconfigured the CooperVision warehouse for narrow aisle operation which increases the storage density and pallet locations. Locators supplied Aisle-Master articulated forklifts to work in this area.

Coopervision, Hamble

We have worked with Locators for nearly 20 years. We are confident they can always make the best use of the space we have available and provide us with forklifts that are well suited for the long loads and other stock we have to move.

Colin Macgregor
Director, Y Goldberg

Every time we look at an application, Locators approach it like a blank canvas and always recommend the best equipment for our business. Locators have proved themselves as a very reliable and proactive service provider by keeping our trucks working and our fleet costs as low as possible.

Adam Conrad
Group Transport Manager for Covers

Being able to work with one supplier for storage and materials handling has been a benefit to us. Locators managed the complete installation and ensured the correct materials handling equipment was specified for their design. They also service and maintain all of the equipment they have supplied and offer a rack inspection service to make sure our warehouse remains a safe working environment. We are very happy with our new facility and we believe we have made the best use of the available space.

Marc Congdon
Engineering Manager, Costa

We purchased our first Toyota forklift from Locators 14 years ago for our farm. This truck has been very reliable and is still in service so we had no hesitation in deciding to purchase another Toyota machine. Locators recommended an electric forklift for our machinery depot as it is very quiet, has low running costs and does not create any pollution, making it ideal for working both inside and outside. Our operators are very pleased with our new Toyota truck and our business is very happy to be operating a forklift that has such a low impact on the environment.

Ed Smales
Director, NFFM

Locators installed the new racking system within a tight timeframe while our business was fully operational. They have provided us with a facility that has a similar storage capacity and reduced the size of our forklift fleet allowing us to lease one building instead of two. We are very happy with the outcome.

Paul Bickell
Nippon Express

Locators gave us the benefit of working with just one supplier for all of the storage and materials handling requirements of this project. By mixing 3 and 4 wheel trucks from the same model range, we have gained extra pallet locations and have the option to battery change between them and work multi-shift in the future. I was initially sceptical that electric trucks could replace LPG, but I am very pleased with the successful outcome of this project.

Mark Davis
Logistics Supervisor for Hall & Woodhouse brewery

It is a great benefit to us that we have a single source supplier who understands the needs of our business. This saves us time, improves efficiency and ultimately reduces cost.
