What Is Sheet Racking?
Sheet racking is a pallet racking derived system designed for the storage of sheet materials such as sheet metal, wood, and plastic. Sheet racking can be customised to fit a wide range of sheet materials of varying weights, lengths and widths including:
- Timber Sheet
- Cabinet Maker Materials
- Timber Panels
- Cement Sheet
- Security Mesh
- Plastic Sheet
- Laser Cutting Materials
- Steel Panels
- Sheet Steel
The use of sheet racking to store sheet materials will free up floor space and allow for greater organisation as well as easier product accessibility and identification.
Improve Organisation & Warehouse Processes
Sheet racking can also be used to increase organisation and improve warehouse processes. This is because a sheet racking system allows for products to be organised by type, material, size, and any other factor pertinent to your warehouse processes.
Additionally, storing products in a pallet racking system rather than on the floor will free up floor space and allow for easy navigation of manual handling equipment, reducing picking times.
Reduce Product Damage
Sheet racking can also be used to reduce product damage. This is because the racking system provides an extra layer of protection between the product and the manual handling equipment. The sheet racking system also allows for products to be loaded and unloaded safely to minimise damage.
Additionally, sheet materials can become warped or damaged when stored incorrectly, however, the risk of this is significantly reduced when products are stored on the sturdy shelves of a MACRACK sheet racking system.
Increase Storage Capacity
Sheet racking can be used to increase the storage capacity of a warehouse. This is because a sheet racking system can be built as high as needed to fit as much product as possible in the space that would otherwise only hold one pack of sheet material when stacking products on the floor.
Increase Safety & Improved Handling
Not only will the use of sheet racking provide protection for your products, it can also increase safety for your workers. This is due to the fact that handling becomes easier when products are individually accessible and stored securely rather than in stacks on the floor.
Providing Quality Racking At Great Prices For Over 30 Years
Customer service is exceptional. The staff are very friendly and helpful when I had any questions and queries. They provided me with all the information I needed and some that I didn’t even know I needed. When I organized something with them, they did exactly what they said they would do and they were always polite and punctual. The price is very competitive and I would recommend Macrack to anyone needing Racking Solutions.

Jeff is a real asset to the business and it is always a pleasure to deal with the ladies in admin (Jo).
I highly recommend Macrack to any business looking to install pallet racking or stock shelving. From designer Leo through to the professional staff who replaced all the shelving in our warehouse and installed new pallet racking. The co-ordination was great and they fitted in with our tight schedule. Any query was answered promptly. Pricing was very competitive as well.
Apex Steel – Case Study
An example of a sheet racking solution we have provided for one of our customers is the customised sheet metal storage solution we created for Apex Steel.
Apex Steel predominantly uses coil racking, provided by MACRACK, to store their steel as it is a great way to maximise storage capacity, particularly in a small area. However, Apex Steel also required a storage solution for sheet steel and plate.
We came up with the perfect solution to store their steel sheets while maximising storage capacity and ensuring that handling and accessibility is as high as possible. We designed and manufactured a selective pallet racking system with longer beams and deeper frames to accommodate the extended width and length of their product.
The use of a customised selective pallet racking system ensured that the product was still able to be loaded and unloaded with a forklift, while minimising the floor space used for product storage.
