Stillages are a vital part of everyday life in warehouses and other factory-type settings. Working as cages, they are used for separating, lifting and storing goods of all shapes and sizes. In order to work effectively and keep goods safe, metal stillages need to be well-made, durable and sturdy. Often made from metals such as steel, they help you to maximise your storage space.

One benefit is their mesh sides, enabling your team to see exactly the contents of the stillage. Working primarily as cages, stillages can be customised and accessorised depending on the needs of your business. Many are also designed to be stackable, collapsible and some have hatches, loading ramps and dividers to make them even more useful.
