Cantilever Racking

Cantilever Racking

Cantilever pallet racks are the most popular type of rack used for storing large and awkward items. These racks are big enough to store long, flat items on and they can also do it in an organized manner.

These pallet racks are commonly used for stacking lumber, PVC pipes and similar long materials on. They are also designed to handle the weight of heavy loads. The cantilever design makes it easier to load and unload the pallet racks.

Our cantilever rack systems are ideal for long or irregular shaped products. Such applications include sheet metal, lumber, pipe, vinyl siding, and furniture storage. Roof arms can be incorporated for outdoor storage needs.

In its basic form, a one bay Cantilever Rack consists of two vertical columns with horizontal load bearing arms attached by bolting at various levels. The horizontal load bearing arms project out from one or both sides of the upright columns at approximately 90 degrees. These racks are used to store rolls of carpet, lumber, pipe, or any long material.

Please note that we do not stock cantilever components in our warehouse. Each request we get from our clients is unique in the sense that each has a special application which requires different weight capacities, and the cantilever racking has to be designed for the client’s needs.
