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.

What are stillages?

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.

What are some common types of stillage?

The most commonly used stillages are:

Stillage cage sheet
Metal cage stillage with sheet metal
Stillage cage mesh
Metal cage stillage with mesh steel
Stillage cage combi
Metal cage stillage with combination mesh and sheet steel

Customisable stillages

These stillages are the most commonly used stillages; however, we offer many different customisable options such as stillages featuring removable dividers which makes it ideal for multiple smaller items, and dividers can be removed if you would prefer to store larger items.

Stillage forklift guides

Some stillages also include forklift guides which makes the transportation of products via a forklift much safer and easier. The pallet is evenly balanced, giving the forklift driver much more control over the stillage’s load.

Stillages can also be fitted with 360-degree castor wheels instead of our standard fixed leg, making the stillage much easier to move around the warehouse. Even better, stillages with castor wheels allow you to move goods around your factory or warehouse without the need for a forklift – a truly flexible and versatile stillage solution.

Metal post stillage

Metal post pallet stillages are a great durable alternative to wooden pallets. They are similar to the our bin stillages but metal post pallet stillages have no sides and are used across all industries for transportation and storage.
