Hot dip galvanized cantilever racks (also referred to as lumber racks or pipe rack) are heavy duty storage shelving that is specifically designed for storing long and bulky items or materials such as lumber, plywood, PVC, steel pipe and metal or bar stock pipes, and more. For this reason, hot dip galvanized cantilever rack is the preferred solution for storing heavy duty items such as furniture, boats, steel bar stock, PVC pipe, iron pipe and a wide array of long, bulky and/or heavy items. In all, cantilever racks are used by a wide variety of industries that recognize it as a great storage solution for their particular business or product line.
Hot dip galvanized cantilever rack is the perfect solution for holding long, flat or over-sized product. Cantilevers can be a replacement for shelving when there is a need for a full, clear shelf and the ability to load from the front without obstruction from rack supported uprights. These racks can be the perfect solution for products that are difficult to store, like rack beams, furniture, lumber, steel piping and more. Installation is normally done with recessed decking on beds to provide a surface to eliminate snags and other potential damage sustained during handling.
Advantage and disadvantage
●Great support for loads with longer dimensions.
●Quick to adjust
●Customizable as per load requirements
●Stable and safe
●Easy to install
●Costlier than normal racking
●Not suitable for pallets
●Provide flexible storage and easy access to your non-pallet-sized material such as lumber, pipe, tubing, steel bars and furniture.
●Cantilever rack is a freestanding storage unit with horizontal load carrying arms extending outward from a single vertical column.
●The absence of a front column makes cantilever rack faster and easier to load and unload than selective pallet rack, lowering your handling time and costs.
●Available in single and double-sided configurations, cantilever rack is made of four basic components: towers, bases, arms and brace sets. Cantilever towers, also known as cantilever uprights, are steel columns, pre-punched to accommodate the cantilever arms at multiple storage heights.
●Cantilever bases are bolted or welded to the towers based on load requirements. Base units extend slightly beyond or equal to the length of the cantilever arms to prevent tipping
