I need to find some shelf runners for a commercial fridge which was imported from the US. Despite a lot of phone calls, I cannot find anyone who stocks the things in the UK, and import costs from the US would be prohibitive.
They are actually quite a basic shape so I'm wondering if anyone knows of a steel fabrication company who will do small one off jobs at a reasonable price? No actual design required as I already have some of these runners which could be copied.

Ideally I'd be looking somewhere along the Belfast - Newry corridor but prepared to travel.

(Edit: I know there are a number of such companies around, I'm looking for recommendations from those who have used some of them and can give me an idea of cost, lead time etc).

All help appreciated.

  • Are we talking a basic folded steel sort of a thing or is there lods of bits and pieces and welding involved? Being a catering item I'd imagine it should be Stainless Steel

    Search DM LaserFAb... based in Lisburn.... they do s/steel and specialise in custom commercial catering s/steel like tables, sinks, extraction canopies etc...

    I would try some of the catering equipment manufacturers/suppliers or firms that make steel air extraction hoods for chip shops and hotel kitchens as these are mostly all made-to-measure.

    You could try Graham Engineering, outskirsts of Lurgan. They did several stainless steel tanks for me and were very good to deal with.
    Always overestimating...
