Stillages are a vital part of warehouse and factory operations. Working as cages, they are used for separating, lifting, and storing goods of all shapes and sizes. 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 maximise your storage space.

One benefit is their mesh sides, enabling your team to see exactly the contents without having to delve into it. Working primarily as cages, stillages can be customised and accessorised depending on the needs of your business. Many are also designed to be stackable and collapsible - plus, some have hatches, loading ramps, and dividers to make them even more useful.

BlueTrolley has been designing and creating the best quality manual handling products since 1995. We are entirely based in the UK, which means we can offer fantastic prices to our customers - with swift turnaround times as there’s no waiting around for overseas deliveries.

      Stillages: frequently asked questions

      What are stillages made of?

      They are most commonly made of steel - one of the most durable materials available. This steel is usually galvanised, which improves the longevity of the material.

      How big are they?

      The most common type is manufactured to suit pallet size dimensions, as many are used for transporting pallets. This is on average base dimensions of 1200mm x 800mm, but the height can vary depending on the items needed for storage and transportation.

      What are stillages used for?

      The beauty of this humble product is that it can be used for storing almost anything. They are excellent for storing goods which are bulky or uneven in shape, thanks to the mesh sides. As well as warehouses, they can also commonly be found in pubs and bars to store barrels of beer.
