As summer approaches, many of us turn our thoughts to the outdoors. Spending time relaxing in the summer sun, taking a bicycle ride or doing some much needed gardening. We might have forgotten what the warm sunshine feels like and that gets us started making plans for the upcoming weekend. But as the weekend approaches, we begin to remember a well neglected part of our home that has been ignored all winter long.read full article →

With the economy growing stronger every month and holiday sales boosting foot traffic and profits, many UK small businesses are beginning to focus on growth and how they can continue to increase their sales in the New Year. While marketing and entering the digital marketplace both have their pros and cons, nothing means more profits quite like purchasing your inventory for less. Businesses that can buy in volume, often get better deals on inventory and can turn those savings into profits.read full article →

Launched in 1995 as part of our Supershelf™ range, our archive shelving has become a popular product amongst law firms, estate agencies, the health industry and schools/colleges.
All of our Supershelf shelving system is made from galvanised steel which prevents rusting and corrosion on our products. This is a definite plus point, especially in terms of product longevity as it is able to be utilized for a very long time, and is easy to clean. In terms of its structure, Supershelf shelving bays consists of two frame uprights and a diagonal and horizontal bracing pattern (as shown on the photo) which enables a stable and supportive structure, allowing each archive shelving bay to hold heavy filing and folders, for example: with a 4 shelves level unit, you can hold 300kg per shelf which would equal a heavy load of 2000kg for the whole bay.Please be aware that the weight should be distributed evenly across each of the shelving panels. Shelves can be adjusted with ease using a rubber mallet and simply slot in and out of the poppers that line the frame. Various shelving panels are available depending upon the length you require for your unit.read full article →

We know that many industries require areas to keep accounts as well as archived documents and so forth and often, especially in small companies, space can be at a minimum. What we love here at Action Storage is the versatility of our products. Not only do they meet our client’s needs, but they are a great use for our staff as well. We utilise the efficiency of our products to enrich our core values within our office and warehouse. Providing storage for our staff not only allows us to keep a clean and tidy work area- but it also allows us to understand our products on a much more personal level, experiencing what our customers do on a daily basis.
