OT: Dexion Racking

Anybody know where i might be able to get hold of a load of cheap s/h
Dexion racking, you know the old sort held together with nuts and
bolts. Dexion (and other companies too!) made mountains of the stuff
years ago, so there should in theory be loads of it rusting
somewhere....

Don't mind dismantling it and taking it away myself.

I've got about 2 tons of it here - yours for a few beers. Pity it's
12000 miles away.

I just thought about that after posting. Needs to be within 75 miles
to Bedfordshire.

Dexion Impex, Dexion Spandex, Dexion Speedlock, etc etc. All companies
offering new and secondhand racking, installation services etc, none
of it traditional nut&bolt dexion. These days it's geared towards
pallets etc and bolt-free assembly. Unfortunatly the old stuff isn't
used any more because it takes too long to assemble and re-assemble,
hence it has little commercial re-sale value.

can't imagine what type of business would carry that old stock. good luck.

I'm always in the look out for it too - keep an eye on eBay and
the classifieds in your local paper. It comes up (at a sensible price)
on eBay now and again, but your local rag is likely to have occasional
ads - you may have to "take the lot" and sell on what you dont want.

It's also worth keeping an eye on local scrap yards - Dexion and pallet
racking often just gets dumped - I've even found it tipped in lay-byes!

Have a quick google for "dexion racking bolt nut UK", you can usually
spot the ones that say "eliminates nuts and bolts" on the google
results page, on the first few pages there were some entries that
looked promising, a quick phone call would confirm or not.

Is this the kind of thing you're after?

"Slotted Angle Construction Kit", cut it to size and bolt it together.

http://www.dexion.com/products/kits/dexion_slotted.asp

Maybe use that as a search term?
