Offering great versatility, our cantilever racking allows you to easily store products with differing requirements – either individually or on pallets.

What Is Cantilever Racking?

Cantilever racking is made up of a central column on a heavy-duty base which supports the cantilever arms. Each set of cantilever arms can be specifically designed to meet any requirements.

Often used in DIY outlets or builders’ merchants, our cantilever racking is ideal for storing long and heavy items such as timber, tubes or sheeting. It is available for both indoor and outdoor use and can be galvanised to maximise the lifespan of the racking in external applications.

No specialised handling equipment is required for cantilever racking systems as all levels of the racking are easily accessible. However, side loader forklifts can be used to maximise the aisle widths and maximise storage capacity.

Common Uses for Cantilever Racking:

  • Timber
  • Tubes
  • Metal sheets
  • Steel sections
  • Concrete lintels

Advantages of Cantilever Racking:

  • Stock is easily accessible – loads can be easily accessed wherever they are stored which reduces the handling time.
  • Adjustable – the cantilever arms can be specifically designed to store products of varying sizes.
  • Suitable for outdoor use – cantilever racking can be galvanised to protect the system from the elements.

Things to Consider:

If you are using cantilever racking outdoors it should always be galvanised to protect it from the elements. This reduces the likelihood of the system getting rusty and corroding.

In addition to using galvanised racking, you may also wish to have a built-in roof canopy installed to protect your products from the weather.

A clearly accessible design that uses the minimum amount of space allows for businesses to create an efficient storage system. The cantilever arms can be adjusted as your requirements change providing a flexible solution to your facility.
