What is Cantilever Racking?

"Cantilever Racking: The Ideal Solution for Bulky and Long Materials Storage

Cantilever racking is the go-to storage system for accommodating long, awkward, or bulky materials of various lengths. Setting it apart from conventional pallet rack systems is its unique design that eliminates vertical obstructions in the storage area.

This versatile storage system comprises several key components:

Light Duty Cantilever

  1. Bases: Serving a dual purpose, bases anchor the rack system to the floor while connecting to the unit’s upright columns to provide essential stability.
  2. Upright Columns: These vertical components connect to the bases and feature strategically positioned holes where the cantilever arms attach, creating distinct storage levels. Upright columns are adaptable for both single and double-sided units.
  3. Arms: Functioning as the load-bearing support, arms connect to the upright columns and are responsible for securely storing the products.
  4. Braces: Braces play a crucial role in stabilizing the upright columns, delivering horizontal and diagonal reinforcement to ensure the rack’s structural integrity.
  5. Decking: In certain applications, decking can be added as an option. It provides a solid shelf level on the cantilever storage arms, enhancing versatility and accommodating a wider range of materials.

Cantilever racking with decking is particularly useful for storing odd-sized and awkward loads, making it the preferred choice for industries dealing with items like furniture. Whether you’re managing lengthy pipes, unwieldy timber, or irregularly shaped merchandise, cantilever racking offers a solution tailored to your specific storage needs.”

Medium Duty Cantilever

Cantilever Rack is a storage system that has open ends allowing unobstructed storage of long or bulky items. Cantilever Rack is ideal for storing long materials such as, tubes, bar stock, PVC, or lumber. It is also ideal for bulky items such as furniture or even cars. We have a variety of size, gauge and accessories available in order to provide a solution to any of your storage requirements. Units assemble as a single bay of rack or as a continuous assembly. Starter units require two bases and two columns, one brace set and arms. Arm elevations are easily adjustable to accommodate any bundle size. The use of an optional double base allows for Cantilever to be accessed from both sides.
