WHAT IS A CANTILAVER RACK?
A cantilever rack is a freestanding storage unit that has horizontal load-carrying arms that extend outward from a single vertical column. It is comprised of three main components (illustrated in the photo below): Uprights, Arms and Brace Sets. Uprights consist of a vertical column and horizontal base that is bolted to the column. Holes in the base allow the upright to be anchored to the floor–they are never supposed to be attached to columns, walls or other structures.
Arms are the heart of any cantilever rack system. We have straight arms available (used for storing stable loads like lumber, steel sheets and cartons) as well as inclined arms (used for storing cylindrical objects or items that have a tendency to roll forward). Braces provide structural support and are bolted in between pairs of uprights to provide stability to the cantilever rack system.
Brace lengths are measured from the center line of one upright to the center line of the next upright and come in sets rather than individually. There aren’t any vertical supports on the outboard ends of each arm, cantilever rack gives you the ability to store extremely long items. This type of rack provides instant accessibility to one piece of a full load and allows products to be easily loaded on and off arms and bases with a forklift.

WHY CHOOSE A CANTILEVER RACK?
Cantilever rack is ideal for storing long, heavy items (furniture, gutters, lumber, pipes, siding, steel bars, tubing, etc.). Its heavy duty steel construction allows it to carry a significant more amount of weight than pallet rack and other types or warehouse or distribution center storage—each arm can hold up to 3,800 lbs.
Choosing the right cantilever rack system for your specific situation depends on what exactly you need to store. Once we have that answer (including the depth, height, length and width of the item), Cantilever rack is modular in nature, so extra arms, braces and uprights can be added at any time as storage requirements change.
