A cantilever rack, also known as a cantilever warehouse racking or cantilever tube rack, is an independent, multi-level heavy-duty storage rack. It is suitable for storing long materials, ring materials, plates, pipes, and irregular goods. Cantilever racking systems do not have the wire deck common in pallet racking systems and have horizontal arms connected to vertical columns. This design not only eliminates columnar, vertical, or upright obstacles but also creates a multifunctional storage space through the arm or bracket locked on the column.
These undeck racking systems can maximize the use of storage space. Therefore, cantilever rack systems provide a durable, economical, and flexible solution for storing large or large items. They become an excellent way to improve warehouse design, storage capacity, and overall profitability.
The cantilever racking is mainly composed of four components, including bases, upright columns, braces, and arms.
The base is connected to the equipment column and fixes the entire rack system to the floor. It is made of h-shaped steel or special profiles. It is the main source of support for the column and also the main stable component. The size of the base is determined by the capacity of the rack and the size of the arm.
The upright column connects the base and the arm. It is mostly made of H-shaped steel or cold-rolled steel, which is the key to the stability of the entire rack system.
Cantilever braces hold the columns together and provide structural support. It is divided into horizontal support and diagonal support. The length and width of these supports depend on the items that the rack will carry or hold.
The arm is connected to the column and used to store the product. It is made of square tube, cold-rolled steel, or H-shaped steel. The arm and the column adopt plug-in type or bolt connection type.
Cantilever racks are generally made of two materials, square tube, and c-shaped steel. For cantilever racks, first, select the specifications of the square tube or c-shaped steel according to the corresponding cantilever layer load requirements. Cut it to the required size. One end is welded with a non-slip protective plate, and the other end is welded to connect the U-shaped column connector.
A connecting rod is used to connect the cantilevered racking column pieces and the column pieces. The connecting rod is generally made of a rectangular tube. To increase safety and stability, a flat iron back pull is added to the connecting rod. The special puller can tightly fix the column.
All the cantilever shelf components are semi-finished products after the production is completed, and will be sprayed in the last process. Before spraying, perform shot blasting to remove oil and rust, and then spray. Pack and ship after completion.
Cantilever racking systems can be divided into light cantilever racks, medium cantilever racks, and heavy cantilever racks according to their carrying capacity. According to the structure, cantilever shelves can be divided into single-sided cantilever shelves and double-sided cantilever shelves.
Lightweight cantilever rack: suitable for storing lighter weight items, such as blankets
Medium-duty cantilever racking: suitable for storing heavier items, such as hollow plastic tubes
Heavy-weight cantilever rack system: suitable for storing heavy items, such as steel pipes and wood
Single-sided cantilever shelf: only one side has an arm
Double-sided cantilever shelf: arm on both sides
Cantilevered shelves are used to store or display large and large items, such as wood and metal pipes. They are also suitable for long items that cannot be placed on other types of warehouse shelves.
Flexible and convenient to use.
The columns and arms of the cantilever rack can be adjusted as required. They come in various shapes and sizes, can be configured in many different ways, and are easy to assemble, disassemble, and reassemble.
Barrier-free pick-up can save time and manpower
Unlike other racking systems, cantilever rackings have no vertical obstacles, so you can load your products with a forklift without being restricted by the front pillar. This greatly saves time and labor costs.
The cantilevered shelves are all made of steel, so there is no need to worry about shelf breakage when used for a long time. In addition, cantilevered racks can be used indoors or outdoors throughout the year. Any climate and season changes, you can keep using it without moving.
Save space and easy to pick up
The cantilever racking system adopts a stacking design, which can save more storage space. At the same time, due to the space division, it is very suitable to separate, organize and easily access the inventory when needed.
Cantilever rackings are especially suitable for warehouses with small space and low height. It is easy to manage, has a wide field of vision, and has a higher utilization rate than ordinary shelves. Cantilevered shelves are suitable for building materials supermarkets. They can be used to store building materials, such as wood and drywall, as well as poles, beams, and other long and odd-shaped materials. It is also suitable for the machinery manufacturing industry and can be used to store metal materials, such as metal plates, such as aluminum, and steel, as well as bars, pipes, and tubes. In addition, it is also suitable for furniture manufacturers to store long and variable-size materials.
