Some materials don’t fit neatly or effectively into pallet racking systems. Lumber and steel, for example, are often too long and awkward to fit on pallets, and may not have squared edges. Materials such as these are best stored using cantilever racking.
Cantilever racking is a free standing storage system with horizontal arms extending out from a single vertical column. The system is ideal for storing long items in continuous runs in order to avoid left-to-right vertical uprights that interfere with the placement of the product on the shelves.
Cantilever racks are found in a wide variety of settings, such as lumber yards, hardware stores, plumbing supplies warehouses, and non-uniform products; such as furniture, building materials, sheet metal, heavy duty metals, pipe, bar stock, appliances, etc.
