Stable Heavy Duty Cantilever Rack For Faster Throughput And Available Work Area
A cantilever rack is a type of storage system used for organizing and storing long and bulky items such as pipes, lumber, and steel bars. It is designed with arms or beams that extend horizontally from a vertical column, creating a structure that resembles a cantilever.
The main advantage of a cantilever rack is its ability to store items without the need for vertical obstructions, such as support beams or columns, that might hinder access to the stored materials. This allows for easy loading and unloading using forklifts or other material handling equipment.
Cantilever racks typically consist of the following components:
1. Vertical Columns: These upright structures provide support and stability for the rack system. They are usually made of heavy-duty steel and can be anchored to the floor for additional stability.
2. Arms/Beams: These horizontal members extend from the vertical columns and support the load. They are available in various lengths and can be adjusted or removed to accommodate different-sized items.
3. Brace Sets: These diagonal braces are used to connect the vertical columns together, adding rigidity and stability to the rack system.
Cantilever racks are often used in industries such as manufacturing, construction, lumber yards, and warehouses where long and heavy items need to be stored efficiently. They offer easy access to stored materials and can be customized to fit specific storage requirements.
When considering a cantilever rack system, it is important to take into account factors such as the weight and dimensions of the items to be stored, the available floor space, and any specific requirements for load capacity and accessibility.

Cantilever racks are the preferred racking solution for the orderly storage of heavy, bulky products in a variety of lengths and size proportions. Cantilever rack systems have horizontal load carrying arms that extend outward from a single column, whereas pallet rack designs include front columns.
Cantilever racks enable full horizontal access with no lost storage space owing to rack structure because they are not confined by front columns. This ease of access improves retrieval efficiency while reducing potential damage caused by horizontal or vertical obstructions.
Why Choose a Heavy Duty Cantilever Rack?
Our Engineering Department always designs and reviews Bluff Manufacturing's bespoke Cantilever Racks to ensure that the weight distribution of your products is safe and stable in the cantilever rack. In some circumstances, the structure of the arm or base may require additional size, strength, or bracing to properly store the load, depending on the shape, density, weight distribution, and overhang of your product. The evolution of the storage solution is determined by your needs, your site, and your product.
