RMI (R-Mark) Certified Cantilever Rack System For Warehouse In-Door And Out-Door Storage
Cantilever racking system is designed to manage loads of varying length and proportion and offers a perfect solution to the storage of long, bulky and irregular shaped items such as lumber, tube, pipe, carpet rolls, furniture, textile, etc. Such loads are difficult to place on or remove from traditional pallet racks, which are limited to the length of the beams used in each section. However, cantilever racking defeats all those trials perfectly.

These racks utilize a center column with arms which are easily adjusted to accommodate bundle size, allowing for uneven overhang. Staying completely accessible from the front without any of the horizontal restrictions of traditional pallet rack, the whole length of the rack maybe used for storage, guaranteeing an instant accessibility to one piece or a full load.
With no front columns in the way, one hundred percent utilization of horizontal and vertical space provides faster loading and unloading with lower handling costs.
Structure and Components
The main components are illustrated as the followings:
Usually a upright refers to an vertical upright column and an attached horizontal base, which can be single-sided or double-sided. As the names suggested, single sided units can only utilize one side while double sided units can store material on both sides. In addition to more arms for storage, double-sided cantilever rack can be more stable in structure.
Columns of cantilever racking are punched with holes in certain distance, where arms are inserted for vertical height adjustment.
The bases, usually bolted to the columns, are the most important part in stabilizing the whole structure.
♦ Cantilever Arm
Arms for the cantilever racking are functioning just as the beams for selective racking, where irregular or long extrusion items are storing at. The following are three types of arms for your reference.
Cantilever arms can be designed into straight or inclined shapes as the pictures shown.
Stable loads such as lumber, wood are suited to straight arm, while for unstable and round objects like pipe, log, inclined arms are safer. Additionally, as load length increases, cantilever racks become more cost-efficient.
Bracing connecting upright columns together can be horizontal and diagonal. They add this cantilever system with more rigidity and stability. Sometimes, X type bracing may also necessary for higher racks or as a protection for unstable products that are easy to fall.
♦ Stop pin
Welded stoppers or removable pins are fixed at the end of the arms to stop items falling from the rack, like the pallet stopper in the selective pallet racking system.
♦ Supporting bar
To add storage capacity and stability, supporting bars and bracket are also optional for your warehouse, which also make the pallets storage solution possible.
For items that are loose or need special protection, decking include wire mesh deck and steel panel deck can be considered during design.
♦ Guild rails
The open structure of cantilever racking system leaves the interaction with material handling machines both convenience and potential danger. However, guide rails can decrease the possible damage to the rack and the loads, as well as the workers there.
Cantilever racking system has its own advantages that beat other pallet racking.
► Excellent storage ability
Cantilever racking system can store various products that have irregular shapes, extremely long or bulky while traditional pallet racking cannot.
► Efficient product handling
Without horizontal beams and vertical uprights to block, products, especially the large ones can be stored or retrieved quickly and conveniently with instant accessibility.
► Easy inventory management
The cantilever racking system offers a neat and clean storage method for bulky loads leaving a very easy inventory management.
Cantilever racking system can be very flexible with its open areas where loads can be placed anywhere available with few limitations. They can also be adapted to pallet racking if necessary.
Cantilever racking system is expandable with add-on bays. For your existing system, you just need to buy some uprights, arms and braces to get more storage space.
The initial investment of cantilever racking is relatively low with less components compared to traditional pallet racking. As a cost-effective storage solution, cantilever racking system can also increase storage density and decrease material handling time.
Being an efficient storage solution, cantilever racking system can be designed with light-duty, medium-duty and heavy duty, between which you could choose considering the warehouse layout, product features, material handling method and personal needs.
