What are Stillages and How Can They Benefit Your Business?

If you’re in the market for CE / UKCA Certified Stillages, you may have questions about what they are and how they can help your business. At stillagesandcages.co.uk, we often receive inquiries from customers who are unfamiliar with stillages and the various customizable options available. In this article, we’ll provide you with all the information you need to make an informed decision about the right stillages for your business.

So, what exactly is a stillage? Essentially, it’s a steel structure designed for separating and transporting goods, such as moving them around a factory floor or facilitating the transportation of products. Stillages can improve the efficiency of your business by reducing the time it takes to load and unload your products for transportation to warehouses or end users. Additionally, our stillages are often stackable, which helps to maximize factory floor space and make your factory more organized. Plus, with customizable features like castor wheels, stillages can boost your business’s operational efficiency and productivity. Some stillages even have a drop-front or top for easier access to products when they are stacked, and we offer the option of a hatch door for small items. Ultimately, our stillages can be fully customized to meet the needs of your business, whether that means more flexibility, safer storage, or more secure transportation.

What are some common types of stillages? Here are a few examples:

  1. Metal cage stillages with solid sheet metal sides
  2. Metal cage stillages with mesh steel sides
  3. Metal post pallet stillages
  4. Mesh sided stillages
  5. Recently-developed metal cage stillages with removable dividers

Of these options, stillages with removable dividers are the most commonly used. These stillages are ideal for storing multiple smaller items, and the dividers can be removed for larger items. Stillages with forklift guides are also popular because they make the transportation of goods via forklift safer and easier by evenly balancing the pallet and providing the forklift driver with more control. Stillages with castor wheels are another popular choice because they allow you to move goods around your factory or warehouse without the need for a forklift. Metal post pallet stillages are a durable alternative to wooden pallets and are commonly used across all industries for transportation and storage. Finally, stillage trolleys are a great option if you don’t have a forklift or if you have limited licensed forklift operators. These trolleys make it easy to move stillages around your factory or warehouse.
