WHAT IS CANTILEVER RACK?
Cantilever Rack is a freestanding storage unit with horizontal load carrying arms extending outward from a single
vertical column. The absence of a vertical support on the outboard ends of the arms permits uninterrupted storage
of long lengths of material.
Cantilever Rack is the ideal system for storing furniture, steel bars, pipe and tubing, lumber and other long,
heavy items that must be kept off the floor...provides instant accessibility to one piece or a full load. Forklift easily loads
off and on arms and bases. Being modular in nature, additional arms, uprights and braces may be added as storage
requirements change. More info on cantilever componets
FOR STORAGE AND EASY SELECTION OF BAR STOCK, PIPE, STRUCTURALS, TUBING AND
OTHER LONG ITEMS OR WHERE UNINTERRUPTED DECKING IS REQUIRED.
Available in upright heights from 6' to 20' with 2' through 10' brace
widths (measured on center). Arms are completely adjustable on 3"
centers to accommodate an infinite variety of items. Straight arms
are available in nine different lengths with or without lips. Heavy Duty
and Extra Heavy Duty arms are both available in seven lengths with
or without lips. Inclined arms are available in seven lengths with or
without lips. A wide range of base sizes allows custom designing of
rack systems to your individual needs. Uprights are punched on
both sides for versatility and can be used single sided or double
sided depending on the size of base used. Note that arms must
never be placed on the back side of a single-based upright. Click here for lip and arm accessoires.
CANTILEVER RACKS are modular within each basic
capacity series so that additional arms, uprights and cross braces
may be ordered at any time to add to your existing system. Different
sized arms may be interchanged on racks to further tailor your racks
to different uses.
Single sided uprights can be converted to doubles when used with
longer bases designed to accommodate placement of arms on both
sides. Upright capacities can be computed by multiplying the
number of arms per upright by the individual arm capacities—NOT
TO EXCEED TOTAL UPRIGHT CAPACITIES LISTED. Arm capacity is
based on EVEN DISTRIBUTION OF LOAD. All racks are designed for
quick assembly and come with complete instructions and hardware
Completely adjustable CANTILEVER RACKS eliminate storage problems. Heavy duty steel construction permits
storage of tubes, bars, structurals and other long heavy items that
must be kept off the floor. Bases can be used for extra storage.
Forklift easily loads off and on arms and bases. Fast, convenient
handling of heavy, long unwieldy stock. Instant accessibility to one
piece or a full load. For longer materials, simply add braces and
uprights to fit your requirements.

DESIGNING A CANTILEVER RACK SYSTEM
The key to a successful cantilever rack system is the answer to one question: What is the product (load) being stored? The answer must include the length, depth, height and weight of the product. Once this data is ascertained it becomes a simple matter to determine the required arms, uprights and braces. Click here for more info.
