Stillages are mainly used to transport goods without the need to load and unload the product being carried, which saves time and decreases the chance of damage. A stillage will generally be a skid or a pallet with a cage or sides or some form of support specifically tailored to the material it is intended to carry, quite often they are designed to be stackable.
At Stratford Metal Fabrications we pride ourselves on providing high quality stillages, bins and cages made from steel. We have worked with many companies to achieve increased production and realise cost savings as a result of improvements to their storage and transportation capabilities which come with our steel stillage design and manufacturing services.
We specialise in designing and manufacturing large, heavy-duty or bespoke stillages for use in a range of settings. We have many years of experience in metal fabrication which we use to help our customers design, redesign or produce stillages to suit their own specific requirements. This regularly includes large and complex steel stillage projects and we can incorporate bespoke elements - such as nylon or wooden elements for different material types being transported. Galvanising and Powder Coating are two of the various options for finishing dependant on the specific use or application of the stillage.
All our steel stillages (and the other products we design and manufacture) are produced in our own factory based in Essex to the highest specifications by trained and qualified engineers. We are able to manufacture, manage and schedule large orders into production at tight deadlines and liaise closely with all our customers throughout the process. We believe in forming strong relationships with all our clients and in a number of cases, we have actually been integrated in to our customer's production processes.
