Cantilever racking systems are freestanding storage racks that use a cantilever support system. This is where you can store long or bulky objects that cannot fit in traditional storage. They can easily accommodate products like lumber, pipes or even rolls of paper and fabric.

A cantilever rack is designed with three components: the uprights, arms, and braces.

Cantilever Uprights

These consist of horizontal and vertical columns that can be single-sided or double-sided. These are the overall support for the racking system.

Cantilever Arms

These are what hold your products and are the heart of your racking system. They are straight arms that protrude out from the body of the rack and store anything long and bulky, including:

  • Lumber
  • Steel sheets
  • Fabric rolls
  • Paper rolls
  • Pipes
  • Cartons
  • Skids
  • Bars
  • Tubing
  • Wires

Cantilever Braces

Braces give the racking system lateral stability and range from light duty to heavy duty.
