Cantilever rack is the ideal storage equipment for stocking big, elongated or non-standard items like carpet rolls, drywall or steel. It permits you to store bulky products with greater efficiency and in much larger quantities.

While most products move through warehouses on ordinary pallets, there are several outliers. For many manufacturers, there are certain items that just can’t be loaded onto a pallet. Whether it’s sheetrock, lumber, piping, furniture or other items that are long, bulky or oddly shaped, certain products are just difficult to find a place for.

Cantilever rack can address this issue. It enables you to stock awkward products more efficiently and in larger amounts. Instead of simply stacking goods on a warehouse floor or in a storage yard, you can fully utilize vertical space.

This also allows you to maintain a broader variety of items, as you can easily pick a product off of a cantilever level as opposed to maintaining individual stacks of individual goods.

Heavy Duty Cantilever Rack

Cantilever racking is quite distinct from ordinary pallet racks. Cantilever starts with a steel foot that is fastened to a vertical steel beam. The upright has horizontal arms mounted at different levels to keep goods. Cantilever racks can support a surprising amount of weight. Certain cantilever systems can maintain loads of up to 20,000 lbs per level.

Single Sided Cantilever Rack vs Double Sided

Almost all cantilever storage systems offer variations for single sided racking to be positioned near walls, and double sided shelving that can be arranged in aisles.

An important advantage to cantilever rack is its capacity to be easily adjusted. As your business needs change, you can easily modify cantilever sections and heights.

Another benefit is that the open layout of cantilever rack gives your lift trucks easy reach to goods that are often tricky to handle. As an added benefit, having open racks provides for improved visibility, allowing employees to track down products without any problem.

Cantilever Racks For Specific Industries

Although most types of businesses have at least a few long or bulky types of goods, there are a few types of businesses that predominantly use cantilever rack:

  • Building Supply: lumber, drywall, metal or plastic piping and plywood are just a few construction materials that are awkward and difficult to store.
  • Production: lots of manufacturing operations use steel tubing, bar stock, sheet metal and other long or outsized components in their manufacturing processes.
  • Petroleum: the energy industry makes use of piping, drilling equipment and steel stock.
  • Home Accessories: carpet rolls, flooring, countertop slabs and furniture are all good examples of large, unwieldy products that are challenging to store.
