Cantilever Racking

Cantilever racking is a type of storage system designed to store long, bulky, or irregularly shaped items that don't fit well on traditional pallet racks. It consists of vertical columns with horizontal arms extending outward, creating a series of open storage levels. Cantilever racking is ideal for items like lumber, pipes, steel bars, furniture, and other long or heavy products.


Here are the key features and benefits of cantilever racking:

  1. Open Design: Cantilever racks have a free-standing and open design, allowing easy access to the stored items. This makes it particularly suitable for long or oversized items that may not fit well in enclosed storage systems.

  2. Adjustable Arms: The arms of cantilever racks are adjustable, allowing for flexibility in accommodating items of various lengths. This adjustability makes it easy to customize the rack to meet the specific storage requirements of different products.

  3. Versatility: Cantilever racking is versatile and can be used indoors or outdoors. It is commonly used in warehouses, distribution centers, lumberyards, manufacturing facilities, and retail spaces.

  4. Easy Loading and Unloading: Because of its open design, cantilever racking makes it easy to load and unload items using forklifts or other material handling equipment. This helps in quick and efficient handling of long and heavy materials.

  5. Space Efficiency: Cantilever racking optimizes storage space by providing continuous, uninterrupted storage levels without the need for vertical columns or supports that might obstruct the loading or unloading process.

L or T Shed Cantilever Racking refers to a cantilever storage system designed in the shape of an "L" or "T," providing enhanced accessibility and flexibility for the storage of long or irregularly shaped items. Snow, sleet, ice and rain – protect your outdoor racking from harsh weather conditions.

Industries that benefit from cantilever racking include:

  1. Lumber and Building Materials: Cantilever racking is commonly used in lumberyards and building material stores to store long items such as lumber, plywood, pipes, and construction materials.

  2. Steel and Metal Industries: Cantilever racking is ideal for storing steel bars, pipes, and other metal products in manufacturing facilities or metal service centers.

  3. Furniture Storage: Furniture manufacturers and retailers often use cantilever racking to store long and bulky items like sofas, tables, and mattresses.

  4. Automotive: Cantilever racking is used in the automotive industry to store long items such as pipes, exhaust systems, and other automotive components.

  5. Retail Warehousing: Retailers with oversized or irregularly shaped products, such as carpets or rolled goods, can benefit from the flexibility and accessibility provided by cantilever racking.


In summary, cantilever racking is a versatile storage solution designed for the efficient storage of long, heavy, or bulky items. It is widely used in various industries where traditional pallet racking may not be suitable for the unique storage requirements of certain products.
