Provide flexible storage and easy access to your non-pallet-sized material
such as lumber, pipe, tubing, steel bars and furniture. Cantilever rack is a
freestanding storage unit with horizontal load carrying arms extending outward
from a single vertical column. The absence of a front column makes cantilever
rack faster and easier to load and unload than selective pallet rack, lowering
your handling time and costs.
Available in single and double-sided configurations, cantilever rack is made
of four basic components: towers, bases, arms and brace sets.
Cantilever towers, also known as cantilever uprights, are steel columns,
pre-punched to accommodate cantilever arms at multiple storage heights.
Cantilever bases are bolted or welded to the towers based on load requirements.
Base units extend slightly beyond or equal to the length of the cantilever arms
to prevent tipping.
Cantilever arms are the heart of the rack system. Choosing the proper arm
capacity, arm length and arm style are essential to a successful cantilever
racking system. Brace sets are bolted between pairs of towers to stabilize the
X-bracing increases side-to-side stability of taller towers and heavier
