They are best used for the storage of timber or long metals.

For external use, the racking can be supplied with a galvanised finish
What is Cantilever Racking?

Designed to suit the needs or each client or each application, from light loads where the rack is hand loaded with just a few KG’s up to heavy loads where a forklift is required to load / unload the rack with products into the 1000’s of kgs.
When would I need cantilever racking?
Any racking solution is sought out because your business requires it. A correctly chosen and installed racking solution allows you to maximise your available footage and storage space, drive process efficiency, and directly address bottlenecks in your workflow processes. Strong, versatile, and highly durable – racking optimises your vertical space and can help your team operate at capacity without additional risk and cost.
What are the benefits of using cantilever Racking?
Cantilever Racking is available in single and double sided options and is highly flexible and perfect for industries that stock or store items of varying weights and length. This makes it ideal for long and heavy loads that would otherwise be difficult to manage, or need to be floor stacked. The advantage of cantilever racking is that the main structural upright is to the rear leaving the front elevation open and unencumbered. This enables product of various lengths to be stored while keeping the structural elements to the rear away from the potential for forklift damage.
This allows you to enjoy a bespoke solution that specifically fits your requirements, ensuring the highest standards of compliance for your individualised storage needs.
As well as this, cantilever racking is a popular solution due to its ease of use and relatively simple installation process. The modular nature of the design means that it is easy to customise and adjust. This makes it suitable for a range of products and ensures that it can provide long-term support for your space with a range of projects. This also allows you to add high-strength arms for a range of weights or provide decking to provide platforms and fully comply with any safety standards.
Are there any disadvantages of using cantilever Racking?
Like any storage solution, cantilever racking should be chosen where it is fit for purpose. While the solution is suitable for larger or outsize objects, it is best used in warehouses where there is generous space to manoeuvre and store large items. Failing to do so can slow your picking and stocking actions or potentially introduce danger if implemented into an incorrect space.
