Cantilever rack is the ideal solution for storing outsized, elongated or non-standard products like carpet rolls, drywall or steel. It enables you to store oversized goods in a more efficient manner and in much larger quantities.

Although nearly all goods flow through warehouses on conventional pallets, there are several outliers. In many situations, there are a few products that simply won’t fit on a standard pallet. Whether it’s drywall, lumber, steel goods, furniture or additional products that are bulky, long or non-uniform in shape, some items are just tough to store.

Cantilever rack solves this problem. It permits you to store awkward items in less space and in greater numbers. In place of just stacking products on a warehouse floor or in a storage yard, you can fully utilize vertical space.

Using vertical storage also permits you to maintain a larger assortment of products, since you can easily pull an item off of a cantilever tier as opposed to maintaining dedicated stacks of different products.

Heavy Duty Cantilever Rack

Cantilever racking is far different than typical pallet racking. Cantilever is supported by a steel foundation that is attached to an upright steel beam. The beam has perpendicular arms mounted at different levels to store items. This type of racking structure can support a surprising amount of weight. Many cantilever configurations can maintain loads of up to 20,000 pounds per level.

Single Sided Cantilever Rack vs Double Sided

The majority of cantilever storage systems have choices for single sided cantilever to be stationed near walls, and two sided racking that can be configured in aisles.

A key advantage to cantilever rack is its capacity to be freely re-engineered. In the event your needs change, you can easily readjust cantilever sections and heights.

A supplementary benefit is that the open design of cantilever rack permits your lift trucks easy reach to products that are generally tricky to handle. In addition, open racks enable greater visibility, allowing employees to track down products quickly and easily.

Industries Where Cantilever Racks Are Used

Although most industries have at least a few long or bulky kinds of items, there are a few industries that predominantly use cantilever rack:

  • Building Supply: wood, gypsum board, ducting and plywood sheets are some construction materials that are bulky and difficult to store.
  • Production: many fabrication businesses use steel tube and bar stock, sheet metal and other elongated or oversized components in their assembly processes.
  • Energy: the oil industry has requirements to store piping, drilling equipment and steel stock.
  • Household Goods: roll carpeting, flooring materials, countertops and large furniture pieces are all good examples of large, unwieldy goods that are difficult to store.
