What is Cantilever Racking?

Cantilever racking systems are  ideal for storing heavy large, bulky or oddly-shaped materials that must remain off the floor. The most common products stored are sheets of wood and metal, lumber beams, steel bars and pipes

It also offers flexibility, allowing you to adjust the height and width of the shelves to suit your needs. Additionally, it is cost-effective and easy to install, making it a great choice for warehouses or industrial facilities that need additional storage space. A variety of safety products are available to protect your racking and stock from damage caused by materials handling machinery.

Uses for Canteliver Racking

Here are some scenarios in which you might use this system:

  1. Lumber and Building Materials: Cantilever racking is commonly used in lumberyards and construction material storage. Long items like lumber, pipes, steel beams, and plywood sheets can be stored on the horizontal arms of the cantilever racks without the need for vertical support columns that might get in the way.
  2. Furniture Storage: Furniture, such as sofas, tables, mattresses, and other bulky items, can be stored on cantilever racks. The open design of cantilever racks allows for easy access and retrieval of furniture items without the need to move other items around.
  3. Automotive Parts: Cantilever racking is used in warehouses or distribution centers that handle automotive parts, especially those with irregular shapes, such as tires, exhaust pipes, and car bumpers.
  4. Piping and Tubing: Industries dealing with pipes, tubes, and conduit benefit from cantilever racking. These items can be stored horizontally on the arms, preventing them from rolling off or becoming damaged.
  5. Textiles and Fabrics: Rolls of textiles, fabrics, carpets, and other textile products can be stored on cantilever racks, ensuring that they remain accessible and well-organized.
  6. Metal and Plastic Extrusions: Manufacturing facilities that deal with long metal or plastic extrusions, like rods and profiles, can store them effectively on cantilever racking systems.
  7. Warehouse Retailing: Large retail warehouses that sell items like flooring, tiles, or large appliances can utilize cantilever racking to display and store their products.
  8. Outdoor Equipment: Items like canoes, kayaks, ladders, and other outdoor equipment that are difficult to fit onto standard shelves can be stored on cantilever racks.
  9. Heavy Industrial Items: In heavy industries such as manufacturing or construction, cantilever racking can hold heavy machinery parts, molds, and other equipment that might not fit into traditional storage systems.
  10. Storage of Plastic and Wooden Boards: Planks, boards, panels, and sheets made of wood, plastic, or other materials can be stored on cantilever racks.
