Timber Storage

Storage for timber products designed, manufactured and installed by the experts.

Space Productiv has over 40 years of experience supplying storage solutions to timber merchants, construction businesses, and manufacturing.

When storing timber, it is essential that there is sufficient airflow around the product to ensure that the wood can ‘breathe’. It is imperative that your storage space has excellent ventilation to avoid the timber taking on too much moisture which can ruin stock. ‘Open’ warehouses, rack-clad buildings, and canopied cantilever systems in an outdoor yard are all excellent options for timber storage.

It is also important that timber is stored flat, on a solid surface, to avoid warping and sagging. 

Improper timber storage can lead to spoiled stock and expensive production delays.

Some common issues timber faces from poor storage include:

  • Discolouration
  • Decay
  • Bowing
  • shrinkage or expansion due to being too wet or too dry
  • Cracking and splitting
  • Staining from metal corrosion

Cantilever Racking for Timber Storage

Cantilever Racking is the perfect storage solution for storing timber in your yard or warehouse as it allows for the movement of air around the product while offering the stability needed to avoid warping or bowing.

Long, heavy wood sheets or strips can be effectively stored on cantilever racking for easy access with a forklift while maintaining a small footprint on your warehouse floor.

Space Productiv cantilever racking is SEMA certified and manufactured in our UK factory to the highest possible standards. We offer a range of finishes, including galvanised systems to protect against corrosion and prolong the life of your racking system.

Racking can be either single or double-sided.  Column height is typically up to 10m and the length of your cantilever racking system is limited only by your available space.

Because we design and manufacture our own cantilever racking, our expert team can tailor the ideal cantilever racking system for your space and timber storage needs.
