In the landscape of Australian manufacturing, Australian Made licensee Safer Storage Systems is making significant strides with its Silverline® pallet racking, showcasing a commitment to both quality and sustainability. This locally manufactured product is engineered to the highest standards using high-tensile steel to offer businesses across Australia a robust storage solution that embodies the best of Australian manufacturing—durability, quality, and a deep commitment to sustainability.

Safer Storage Systems manufactures this product on demand at their Melbourne-based facility. It allows complete control over the entire production process, as well as the ability to produce bespoke racking lengths and heights with fast turnaround times.

“We are really proud of this product. The work that has gone into developing and refining our manufacturing process, and stringent quality control, is testament to our passionate team.

By bringing production in-house, we can have Silverline® racking material to site, ready for install in just 4-5 weeks,” says Matt Bell, Safer Storage Systems Director.

In addition to shorter lead times, Silverline® stands out for its sustainability benefits, offering an 85% reduction in CO2 emissions compared to pallet racking sourced from Europe or Asia. By producing racking in Australia, overseas shipping is eliminated making for huge carbon savings.

Further reductions are achieved through refined manufacturing processes and making the shift to galvanised beams, which is less energy intensive compared traditional powder-coated pallet racking options.

The galvanised finish also offers brighter results, with a clean, modern look while improving contrast with safety guards and rails within the warehouse.

Shane Burge, Supply Chain Manager at Chobani, says, “Sustainability is a big focus for us. Opting to use SSS Silverline Pallet Racking helped prevent 60.3 tonnes of CO2 from entering the atmosphere.

Our big chiller facility has no natural light, but looks much brighter now with Silverline® Racking. Our operators prefer the galvanised beams as it makes the safety accessories and shelf labels really pop.”

Since its launch in 2022, Silverline Pallet Racking has already contributed to a significant reduction in CO2 emissions across Australia, saving over 1,459 tonnes from entering the atmosphere (and counting).

Businesses such as Officeworks are implementing Silverline® Pallet Racking as part of their overall sustainability strategy. And for facilities working to creating greener buildings, Silverline® Pallet Racking is a simple way to extend the environmental benefits of the overall project.

Moreover, the choice to manufacture pallet racking in Australia has great benefits for the local economy, creating more jobs for Australians, while highlighting the excellent quality standards in place.

As the industry moves towards a more sustainable future, the Silverline® range by Safer Storage Systems sets a high bar for environmentally responsibility in the warehouse storage industry.

“The response to Silverline® Pallet Racking has been overwhelmingly positive. There’s a growing awareness and demand for sustainable industrial solutions, and companies are keen to reduce their carbon footprint without sacrificing on quality.”

“Our range not only meets this demand but also offers competitive pricing and performance, making it a viable option for businesses of all sizes.”

“Our goal is to lead by example, showing that it’s possible to be both industrially robust and environmentally responsible,” says Director, Matt Bell.
