Cantilever rack is the perfect solution for stocking big, elongated or odd sized products like flooring rolls, drywall or pipe. It permits you to store bulky products in a more efficient manner and in far greater quantities.

While nearly all goods move through distribution channels on standard size pallets, there are many exceptions. In many situations, there are certain items that simply can’t be loaded onto a pallet. Whether it’s sheetrock, building materials, bar stock, carpeting or other items that are long, bulky or oddly shaped, some products are just problematic to find a place for.

Cantilever rack solves this problem. It permits you to store awkward products more efficiently and in larger quantities. Rather than stacking items in a storage yard or on a warehouse floor, you can fully utilize vertical space.

This also allows you to maintain a greater variety of items, as you can simply pull a product off of a cantilever tier instead of maintaining dedicated stacks of different products.

Heavy Duty Cantilever Rack

Cantilever racking is not at all like standard pallet racking. Cantilever is anchored with a steel foot that is attached to a vertical steel beam. The beam has horizontal extensions attached to hold items. Cantilever racks can hold an extraordinary amount of weight. Certain cantilever systems can support loads of nearly 20,000 pounds per level.

Single Sided Cantilever Rack vs Double Sided

The majority of cantilever storage systems have choices for one sided racking to be installed near walls, and double sided shelving that can be arranged in aisles.

A key advantage to cantilever rack is its capacity to be freely reconfigured. As your business requirements fluctuate, you can easily modify row heights and sections.

An additional convenience is that the open design of cantilever rack gives your forklifts free access to products that are generally difficult to handle. As an added benefit, an open racking structure permits greater visibility, allowing workers to track down items quickly and easily.

Which Industries Use Cantilever Racks?

Although most industrial categories have a handful of large or awkward kinds of products, there are a few industries that make extensive use of cantilever:

  • Building Supply: wood, sheetrock, ducting and plywood are just a few building materials that are bulky and difficult to store.
  • Manufacturing: lots of manufacturing businesses use steel bar stock, tubing, sheet metal or plate steel and other elongated or oversized components in their assembly processes.
  • Oil & Gas: the oil industry uses a lot of piping, drilling equipment and steel stock.
  • Home Accessories: roll carpeting, flooring, countertops and furniture are all good examples of large, awkward products that are challenging to store.
