Cantilever Racking System

Cantilever Racking is a storage system designed to store long, awkward, or bulky materials of virtually any length. Unlike any other rack systems cantilever racks offer no vertical obstructions in the storage area. It is made up of the following components:

Bases which anchor the rack system to the floor and also connect to the units upright acting as the main stabilizing component.

Upright Columns which connect to the base and have holes in which the cantilever arms are connected to creating the storage levels. Uprights can be used for single and double sided units.

Arms connect to the upright column and are used to store the product on.
Braces which are used to stabilize the upright columns offering horizontal and diagonal support.

Decking is an option available for certain applications offering a solid shelf level to the cantilever storage arms.With decking, Cantilever is also used in the storage of odd sized and/or awkward loads such as furniture.
