Some materials don’t fit neatly or effectively into typical pallet rack systems. Lumber and steel, for example, are often too long and awkward to fit on pallets and may not have squared edges. Materials such as these are best stored using cantilever rack systems. Cantilever rack systems are ideal for storing long items in continuous runs to avoid left-to-right vertical uprights interfering with the placement of the product on the shelf. Cantilever racks can be found in various settings, such as lumber yards, hardware stores, or plumbing supplies warehouses.
A cantilever storage rack system is a free-standing rack system with horizontal arms extending out from a single vertical column. Because cantilever rack systems have no vertical obstruction, they create an opportunity for greater horizontal storage space.
This arm rack system is effective for storing non-uniform products, including furniture, building materials, sheet metal, heavy-duty metals, pipe, bar stock, appliances, rugs, and much more. Cantilever racks are manufactured using either roll-formed or structural steel.
