Cantilever rack is the ultimate solution for stowing large, elongated or non-standard goods like carpet rolls, sheet rock or steel. It allows you to store oversized products with greater efficiency and in far greater quantities.
While most goods move through the supply chain on standard size pallets, there are many outliers. In most industries, there are some items that just can’t be loaded onto a pallet. Whether it’s drywall, building materials, bar stock, furniture or other items that are bulky, long or oddly shaped, certain goods are just difficult to store.
Cantilever rack can address this issue. It enables you to stock awkward goods more efficiently and in greater quantities. In place of just stacking goods on a warehouse floor or in a storage yard, you can fully utilize vertical space.
Using vertical storage also permits you to inventory a broader selection of goods, since you can easily pull a product off of a cantilever tier in place of maintaining different stacks of different products.
Heavy Duty Cantilever Rack
Cantilever style racks are not at all like standard pallet racks. Cantilever is supported by a steel base that is attached to a vertical steel beam. The upright has perpendicular extensions attached to store products. This cantilever configuration can support a surprising weight capacity. Some cantilever configurations can support capacities of up to 20,000 pounds per arm.
Single Sided Cantilever Rack vs Double Sided
Almost all cantilever solutions offer options for single sided racking to be installed near walls, and two sided racking that can be arranged in aisles.
One major benefit to cantilever rack is its ability to be easily re-engineered. As your business needs change, you can easily change cantilever heights and sections.
A supplementary convenience is that the open design of cantilever rack allows your forklifts easy access to products that are sometimes difficult to manage. As an added benefit, having open racks provides for greater visibility, allowing employees to locate items rapidly and efficiently.
Industries Where Cantilever Racks Are Used
Although most types of businesses have some long or bulky sorts of items, there are some industries that use cantilever rack extensively:
- Building Supply: wood, sheetrock, piping and plywood sheets are some construction products that are awkward and difficult to store.
- Manufacturing: countless manufacturing operations use steel bar stock, tubing, sheet metal or plate steel and other elongated or bulky materials in their manufacturing processes.
- Energy: the petroleum industry makes use of piping, drilling equipment and steel stock.
- Home Furnishings: carpet rolls, floor covering, countertops and larger pieces of furniture are all good examples of oversized, unwieldy goods that are not easy to store.
