Mesh grid special

Mesh grid special – buy now before the steel price increase!

With steel prices set to increase up to 10% during September, Barpro has obtained the following commitment from our local supplier on the pricing of mesh grids so long as they are ordered before end September and delivered before end October.


Mesh grids are an alternative to pallet support bars and provide increased support to pallets. They can also provide personnel protection under cantilever racks. Mesh grids work particularly well with most types of plastic pallet which can get brittle in cold temperatures as well as having a tendency to slip off load beams.


The two mesh grid types available are as follows:

1000mm entry by 1100mms deep with 40mm overhangs front and back.

1.  5mm wire mesh both ways with 2mm thick steel stiffening braces: R275 excluding VAT and excluding delivery from Cape Town. To suit up to 1000kg pallets. Grid weight 13kgs

2.  5mm by 6mm wire mesh with 2.6mm thick steel stiffening braces: R300 each excluding VAT and excluding delivery from Cape Town. To suit up to 1200kg pallets plus. Grid weight 15kgs.

Storax Ranger

Storax Ramada Ranger Shuttle launches in SA

Storax Ramada, our European principals, are market leaders with a versatile and successful shuttle system known as the Storax Ranger. As it is now tried and tested Ramada Storax have asked Barpro to market the Storax Ranger in South Africa. Barpro Storage has agreed to do so as the Storax Ranger is complementary to our range of mobile racking, which we’ve become so good at, having successfully implemented well over 200 systems in our more than 25 year history.

Ranger shuttle has sold many thousands across Europe, and we are now incorporating this as an important addition to our product line-up as a locally available offering, and we expect our first SA orders/installations very shortly.

Barpro Storage technicians will be trained in Europe on installation and maintenance, we will hold spares stock in SA, and we’ll be fully equipped to handle this exciting system quite soon.

This system should receive serious consideration in any situation where drive-in might be considered – including forced cooling racks in the fruit industry – but also anywhere in an existing facility where greater capacity is needed (Shuttle is as space efficient as mobiles) but one doesn’t want to mess with an existing floor.

Shuttle is, of course, often an integral part of many fully automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS), which we are also now able to offer through our European partners.
