Industrial storage solutions for the LARGE and AWKWARD

Industrial storage solutions for the LARGE and AWKWARD

Pallet racking is generally designed around a standard pallet which is 40” wide by 48” deep.

But what about storage systems for the big and the awkward?

Oversized items that don’t fit onto standard pallets can take up
large amounts of valuable floor space.

You know the stuff we’re talking about.
Add your own giants to this list:

  • Industrial machinery. Generators, compressors, blowers.
  • Sports equipment – golf-carts, snowmobiles, canoes, and other personal watercraft. You name it.
  • Industrial equipment: fiberglass and stainless-steel tanks, oversized containers, pumps, furnaces.
  • Large appliances and furniture
  • Large parts for the aerospace industry
  • Food processing equipment
  • Swimming pool liners
  • Out of season items, that need to be stored away.
  • Construction equipment
  • Basically, anything up to 8000 lbs.


What if there was an elevated storage system specifically designed for oversized items?

Oversized, odd-shaped, bulky. Whatever you call them, you don’t need those big space-taking footprints on your warehouse floor.  Especially if…

  • Your cost of warehouse space is rapidly rising
  • You’re struggling to handle increased volumes
  • You’re carrying extra stock to alleviate supply chain issues


Get them off the floor and onto the Meriton Oversize Storage System. Because saving floorspace = saving $$$$$.

A word about forklifts

Most standard forklifts can operate the Oversize Storage System, including:

  • Counter-balance forklifts
  • Reach trucks
  • Combilifts
  • Swing-mast forklifts

For pallets deeper than 48” extended forks will be necessary.

Our team will review your needs and make recommendations for forklift equipment.
