Cantilever rack is the ultimate storage equipment for storing large, elongated or non-standard items like flooring rolls, sheet rock or steel. It enables you to store oversized products in a more efficient manner and in far greater quantities.
While the vast majority of products pass through the supply chain on standard size pallets, there are quite a few outliers. For many manufacturers, there are a few products that just can’t be loaded onto a pallet. Whether it’s gypsum board, lumber, bar stock, furniture or additional products that are long, bulky or non-uniform in shape, a few goods are just tough to find a place for.
Cantilever rack can address this issue. It allows you to warehouse bulky goods more compactly and in greater quantities. Rather than stacking products on a warehouse floor or in a storage yard, you can fully utilize vertical space.
Vertical storage can also enable you to maintain a broader variety of products, since you can easily pick an item off of a cantilever level as opposed to maintaining different stacks of different products.
Heavy Duty Cantilever Rack
Cantilever racks are far different than typical pallet racking. Cantilever is anchored with a steel foundation that is fastened to a vertical steel beam. The vertical pillar has horizontal arms attached to keep goods. This type of racking structure can bear an extraordinary amount of weight. Some cantilever configurations can hold loads of up to 20,000 lbs per arm.
Single Sided Cantilever Rack vs Double Sided
Most cantilever shelving systems provide variations for single sided shelving to be positioned near walls, and double sided shelving that can be set up in aisles.
One major advantage to cantilever rack is its capacity to be readily adjusted. In the event your needs change, you can easily modify row sections and heights.
A supplementary advantage is that the open layout of cantilever rack gives your lift trucks unfettered access to items that are generally challenging to manage. In addition, having open racks provides for improved visibility, allowing employees to track down items quickly and easily.
Cantilever Racks For Specific Industries
While many industries have some large or awkward kinds of goods, there are a few types of businesses that make extensive use of cantilever:
- Building Supply: lumber, gypsum board, metal or plastic piping and plywood sheets are some construction materials that are awkward and difficult to store.
- Manufacturing: lots of manufacturing operations use steel tubing, bar stock, sheet metal or plate steel and other elongated or outsized materials in their manufacturing processes.
- Petroleum: the petroleum industry makes use of drilling equipment, piping and steel stock.
- Household Goods: carpeting, floor covering, countertop slabs and larger pieces of furniture are all good examples of bulky, awkward products that are not easy to store.
