Cantilever rack is the perfect solution for stocking large, lengthy or non-standard items like flooring rolls, plywood or steel. It permits you to store bulky items more efficiently and in much larger quantities.

Although the vast majority of goods move through warehouses on conventional pallets, there are many exceptions. In most industries, there are certain items that simply can’t be loaded onto a pallet. Whether it’s drywall, lumber, piping, furniture or something else that’s long, bulky or oddly shaped, a few goods are just tough to store.

Cantilever rack can address this issue. It allows you to warehouse bulky items more compactly and in larger quantities. Rather than stacking goods on a warehouse floor or in a storage yard, you can use vertical space.

This also allows you to stock a larger variety of items, as you can simply pull an item off of a cantilever level as opposed to maintaining different stacks of individual products.

Heavy Duty Cantilever Rack

Cantilever style racks are quite distinct from ordinary pallet racking. Cantilever starts with a steel foundation that is mounted to an upright steel beam. The vertical pillar has perpendicular extensions attached to store items. Cantilever racks can hold a surprising weight capacity. Certain cantilever systems can hold capacities of up to 20,000 pounds per arm.

Single Sided Cantilever Rack vs Double Sided

Almost all cantilever shelving systems have variations for single sided racking to be positioned near walls, and two sided shelving that can be set up in aisles.

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

A supplementary benefit is that the open layout of cantilever rack gives your lift trucks unfettered reach to goods that are often tricky to handle. In addition, an open racking structure permits improved visibility, allowing employees to track down products quickly and easily.

Cantilever Racks For Specific Industries

Although most types of businesses have at least a few large or awkward kinds of items, there are a few types of businesses that use cantilever rack extensively:

  • Construction: wood, sheetrock, piping and plywood sheets are some building products that are bulky and difficult to store.
  • Manufacturing: countless manufacturing facilities use steel bar stock, tubing, sheet metal or plate steel and other long or outsized materials in their production processes.
  • Energy: the petroleum industry has requirements to store piping, drilling equipment and steel stock.
  • Home Furnishings: carpet rolls, flooring, countertop slabs and large furniture pieces are all good examples of oversized, unwieldy goods that are challenging to store.
