Cantilever Racks

Cantilever racks are a superior storage solution in many situations. Compared to standard pallet racks, cantilever racks are:

  • Easier to use: With no front column in the way, cantilever racks are faster to load and unload, lowering handling time and costs.
  • More flexible: Loads may be placed anywhere along the entire length of a row on a cantilever rack.
  • More compact: The lack of a front column saves horizontal space normally lost to rack structure. Handling clearance is also more abundant.
  • More selective: Any load or storage slot is immediately accessible.
  • More economical: Both reduced handling times and increased space utilization makes cantilever racks more cost-efficient. Additionally, cantilever racks become more economical as load length increases, while standard pallet racks increase in costs.
  • More adaptable: Cantilever racks can store nearly any type of load. They are especially useful for storing long, bulky, or oddly-shaped loads
