Cantilever racks, also known as steel pipe storage racks and lumber racks, are a storage system which is designed to store long and bulky items or materials such as lumber, plywood, PVC, steel pipe, and metal or bar stock pipes, and more. Unlike any other racking systems, cantilever pallet racking' horizontal load carrying arms extend outward from a single column and offer no vertical obstructions in the storage area, so its entire length can be used for storage.
The cantilever shelving system is a medium to extra heavy-duty storage solution and can easily accommodate products that typical pallet rack openings can not handle. Using cantilever warehouse racks also puts hard-to-store materials into an orderly storage system where they are more accessible and easier to track. Industrial cantilever racks make product and inventory control become easily accessible for hand or forklift loading and retrieval. Stored items are presented in a highly visible manner, expediting inventory control. Cantilever pallet racking is perfect for the "pile-up" method of storage (typically used for piping or lumber). With cantilever shelving system, the material handler can sort through the entire pile to find what he needs so that he can cut his work in half - or more.
Cantilever warehouse racks are the racking system of choice for the orderly storage of large, bulky items with a wide range of lengths and size proportions. As the top 10 China cantilever rack manufacturers, Weida's cantilever rack systems are available in both roll-formed and structural steel designs and made for light-duty to heavy-duty applications. Its multilevel cantilever pallet racking is designed and engineered to offer superior strength, stability, and safety. All components are treated with a durable paint for a scratch-resistance finish and a matchless professional style.
Weida's cantilever warehouse racks provide superior storage solutions and are ideal for storing bulky, irregular, long, and odd-shaped items at low cost. As the top 10 China cantilever rack manufacturers, we can provide ideal configuration specific to your needs and storage space, and our industrial cantilever racks maximize space both vertically and horizontally to provide you with an economical, efficient storage and retrieval system. In addition, our all-structural steel fabrication ensures a long life for your storage investment.
Bases that anchor the cantilever shelving system to the floor and also connect to the units upright, acting as the main stabilizing component.
Upright columns are the main structural components in any cantilever warehouse racks installation. They work with bases to create the 'backbone' of the rack. Uprights which connect to the base and have holes in which the cantilever arms are connected to creating the storage levels. Uprights are available in single or double-sided configurations. The only difference between the two is that with double-sided uprights, you can store material on both sides of the rack.
Cantilever arms are the heart of the cantilever shelving system. Arms connect to the upright column and are used to store the product on. They attach to the upright with a hairpin keeper, the hairpin keeper allows for instant arm adjustability. Arms are adjustable on 3" centers up and down the upright. They are available with or without front lips (for cylindrical objects or loads that tend to roll forward). The arms are available in two types of straight arms (generally used to store flat stable items such as lumber, steel sheets, cartons, skids, etc.) and incline arms (for cylindrical objects or loads that tend to roll forward).
The last component of the cantilever pallet racking is bracing. The braces go-between uprights and stabilize the rack laterally. Braces are not intended to hold loads and should only ever be used to connect and brace the uprights in a row. They are used to stabilize the upright columns offering horizontal and diagonal support. The braces will be the same length as the spacing between uprights.
The single sided cantilever rack provides storage on one side and is usually placed against the wall in a warehouse. They’re available with many arm size and type options to meet a variety of storage needs.
The double sided cantilever rack allows access from both sides. This design saves horizontal space normally lost to rack structure, reduces fork truck damage, and allows for faster load and unload times. With a heavy arm connector plate and bolted column-to-base connections, the double sided cantilever rack is a rugged addition to your storage line up.
A chief principle to think about when designing a storage system is the ease of accessibility and handling of the products contained within. The cantilever pallet racking is simple, quick, and easy to handle. In a warehouse, one needs to be able to easily access the materials with a forklift or other machinery which is an issue easily covered with this storage structure. Also, the cantilever shelving system can be configured as double-sided easily, which makes for a more efficient system.
The design of cantilever warehouse racks allows for the storage of longer, thinner items such as steel racks, beams, lengthy pieces of lumber, or even pre-packed furniture.
The industrial cantilever racks can help you both save effort and get things done more quickly. The design allows for easier item storage and handling, enabling workers to find parts they need more quickly or load them on the shelves far more easily than with other types of racks.
