Many customers approach our metalstillages.co.uk team to purchase stillages, but they don’t have the knowledge of what they are, what they do or the many different customisable options of stillages available from our range.
This article will tell you everything you need to know about a stillage and help you in choosing the right stillages for your business.
One of the most common questions we get asked here at metalstillages.co.uk is what is a stillage?
"Melvyn, I have been asked to purchase a new stillage for our business but I don’t know what a stillage is or which stillage to purchase."
A stillage is usually designed and manufactured using steel and is used for separating and carrying goods, for example to move them around a factory floor or to aid in the transportation of goods.
Stillages can benefit your business by reducing the time it takes to load and unload your products during transportation to warehouses or end users.
Our stillages are often manufactured to be stackable, maximising factory floor space and helping your factory become more organised, making it easier to find the products you want when you need them.
Some stillages include a drop-front or top which makes it easier to add or remove products from the stillages when they are stacked.
Each stillage by Metal Stillages has an optional galvanised finish, making each stillage even more durable so it can withstand heavy use and loads.
We pride ourselves on our bespoke stillage manufacture. Stillages can be customised to meet the needs of your business; whether you need more flexibility in your factory systems, safer storage or more secure transportation, Metal Stillages offers a wide range of options to help you create a product that suits your needs.
