Cantilever rack is the ideal storage equipment for stowing outsized, long or non-standard items like carpet rolls, plywood or pipe. It allows you to store oversized products more efficiently and in much larger quantities.

Although the vast majority of goods flow through the supply chain on conventional pallets, there are several exceptions. In many situations, there are a few products that simply can’t possibly fit on a pallet. Whether it’s drywall, lumber, steel goods, furniture or additional products that are long, bulky or oddly shaped, a few products are just tough to find a place for.

Cantilever rack is the answer to this dilemma. It enables you to warehouse unwieldly items more compactly and in larger numbers. Rather than stacking items on a warehouse floor or in a storage yard, you can fully utilize vertical space.

Using vertical storage also permits you to inventory a larger selection of items, as you can just retrieve a product off of a cantilever tier in place of maintaining dedicated stacks of different goods.

Heavy Duty Cantilever Rack

Cantilever racks are quite distinct from ordinary pallet racking. Cantilever is supported by a steel base that is fastened to an upright steel beam. The beam has horizontal arms attached to keep products. This cantilever configuration can bear an astonishing weight capacity. Many cantilever systems can support capacities of up to 20,000 pounds per arm.

Single Sided Cantilever Rack vs Double Sided

The majority of cantilever shelving systems provide choices for one sided shelving to be positioned near walls, and two sided racking that can be arranged in aisles.

One major advantage to cantilever rack is its ability to be easily reconfigured. As your business requirements fluctuate, you can easily readjust arm heights and sections.

A supplementary advantage is that the open configuration of cantilever rack permits your lift trucks easy access to products that are sometimes tricky to handle. Additionally, an open racking structure permits greater visibility, allowing employees to find items quickly and easily.

Cantilever Racks For Specific Industries

Although most industrial categories have some long or awkward types of goods, there are some industries that make extensive use of cantilever:

  • Construction: wood, gypsum board, piping and plywood sheets are just a few building products that are awkward and challenging to store.
  • Manufacturing: lots of manufacturing businesses use steel bar stock, tubing, steel plate and other long or oversized materials in their assembly processes.
  • Oil & Gas: the oil industry has requirements to store piping, drilling equipment and steel stock.
  • Home Accessories: carpeting, flooring, countertops and large furniture pieces are all good examples of bulky, unwieldy goods that are difficult to store.
