Free standing units to store long length material safely & effectively
Cantilever Racking is adaptable, flexible and strong, capable of supporting a range of long, awkward, oversize and heavy materials of virtually any length.
Ideal for storing steel pipes, timber, plastic tubing and more. Racking arms support the load and can be set at different angles, depending on the desired requirements.
Cantilever racking is fully adjustable and modular, allowing maximum flexibility in configuring the rack to suit individual requirements. Installed correctly and in the right position, cantilever racking can increase available vertical space, improve access (compared to stock on floor), handling time and overall warehouse productivity.
Unlike any other racking system, cantilever racking has no vertical obstructions to the length of the items.
Cantilever Racking Components:
Bases anchor the rack system to the floor and also connect to the unit’s upright acting as the main stabilising component.
Upright Columns connect to the base and have holes in which the cantilever arms are connected to create the storage levels. Uprights can be used for both single and double-sided units.
Arms connect to the upright column and are used to support the item.
Braces are used to stabilise the upright columns offering horizontal and diagonal support.
Decking is an option available for certain applications offering a solid shelf level to the cantilever storage arms.
