Customized Sizes Of Cantilever Racks For Different Load Capacity Product Storage
Different Types of Cantivlever Rack
Cantilever rack, having different loading capacity, can be divided into light duty, medium-duty and heavy duty cantilever.
Light duty cantilever racking, usually made with angle steel, can store light loads with weight less than 250kg.
Medium duty cantilever racks, usually made from roll-formed gauge steel, are the most popular one in cantilever systems. Using different gauges of steels means different loading capacity, which you can customize to adjust to different requirement.
Heavy duty cantilever racking, are usually constructed with structural steels having very high loading capacity. Normally, cantilever racks made from structural steel can hold more heavy loads than roll-formed.

For the loading capacity, there’s something that worth your attention.
1. Upright capacity vs Arm capacity
In a cantilever racking system, the main components that bear weight are the upright column and the arms. So we get the corresponding terms: upright capacity and arm capacity. The two parts, as well as the rack’s configuration, all joined together to decide the total loading capacity of a cantilever rack. You don’t need to know the complicated calculation formular, but during the process of using, you must guarantee both upright capacity and arm capacity are fully qualified for safety concern.
2. Uniform Distributed Load
The loading capacity we talked before all based on the calculation of the UDL(uniform distributed load), which means loads are evenly distributed on the arms. So during practical operation, uneven placed loads may cause pointed loads resulting unexpected results.
How to choose your own cantilever ?
If you decided to choose the cantilever racking system for your warehouse, some parameters you should know.
Parameters That Matter
When choosing the proper cantilever racking system, make sure you familiar with your products and measure the sizes of your loads accurately.(eg. length, height, width, weight)
♦ The number of arms are decided by the height of the upright columns and the loads.
♦ The length of the arm is up to the depth and weight of the loads, the former should always be longer than the latter.
♦ The distance between two adjacent arms is taken up by the height of the load and the required clearance for handling.
♦ The arm capacity is determined by the overall weight of a loading level and number of arms that carry the weight.
♦ The arm spacing should be decided by considering the length of the load and the number of arms that hold it.
♦ Usually, the load should overhang the end arms by one-half the distance from upright center-line to upright center-line.
♦ Unreasonable arm spacing and overhang of loads may lead to serious accident.
♦ The height of the uprights is affected by the height of the ceiling and the materials handling equipment you are using.
♦ The upright capacity is based on several factors: the arm capacity, the number of the arms and the number of uprights.
All in all, choosing the right cantilever racking system with proper sizes and loading capacity will help you improve your space utilization and material handling efficiency leading to a maximization of your profits.
