Concept, Design and Feasibility Analysis

Modern computer aided design facilities coupled with Universal's considerable experience in the conceptualization of effective storage solutions form the basis of our customer support. Equally our ability to project manage and assist in installation of storage systems enables us to ensure total customer satisfaction.

Universal makes use of the internationally renowned "Autodesk Inventor" technology. This system is a specialist 3D mechanical design solution that allows the designers to migrate their current 2-D drawings into a productivity-enhancing 3D design environment.

One of the biggest advantages of Autodesk Inventor is the ease with which designers can communicate design intent - especially to non technical personnel. With this technology everyone can see the 3D model from all angles on their computer screens and can validate the design, with a clear understanding of the designers concept.



High strength and versatile racking systems can be built up from standard components to provide an almost unlimited variation in layout to suit every storage need. The system allows for optimum utilization of floor area and floor to roof space. Each component is precision manufactured to high standards of strength and durability.


Office systems are manufactured to the same standards of precision. However, they are designed specifically for the office environment, with attention to tasteful appearance to be able to fit in with modern sophisticated office surroundings, as well as providing a highly effective storage system. In addition, mobile shelving units are available for high density storage of files and office materials. The units are designed to provide a storage system which makes the most economical use of space.

Total Quality Assurance

Quality Assurance from a "right first time" attitude is combined with our Objective: "to design and manufacture superior products which are internationally competitive". A total quality control philosophy is our standard and is practiced at every stage of the process from sourcing of raw materials, design of tooling, selection of appropriate production methods to final inspection prior to despatch. This ensures that our delivered product meets the highest international quality requirements and those of our customers. Universal's quality systems are designed to meet ISO 9001 and SEMA.


Production and Product Installation

Once a storage system concept and feasibility study has been approved by the customer, the production process begins.
