What Is Cantilever Racking?

Understanding if the system will be helpful with your versatile storage needs or not, you first need to understand what it is.

To begin with…

A cantilever racking system stores rare shape items that might not fit in a regular racking system. For instance, lengths of timber, pipes, steel tubing, and beams are some of the products you can store on a quality cantilever racking system.

Due to the open design, you can easily load and unload long products without hurting the structure. Overall it’s a flexible storage system that can either settle inside or outside of a warehouse. It can be customized in many ways to fulfill your diverse requirements.

In short, the system is a must-have in commercial storage places. You can use it as an independent or added system to increase the capacity in your warehouse.

Roll-Form or Structural Cantilever Rack – Which Style Is The Best?

The roll-form cantilever storage rack has a bolt-less design. It is ideal for storing light to medium weight products. At the same time, structural cantilever racks are manufactured for heavier and bulky products weighing around 1500 lbs.

They are constructed from c-channel hot-rolled structural steel. Additional hardware such as nuts and bolts are used in the installation of the structure. Other than that, structural racks are thicker and heavier, which makes them stronger to hold heavier products.

Due to the construction style, a structural cantilever rack has better impact resistance as compared to a roll form rack.


What Are The Advantages Of Cantilever Racking?

  1. Cantilever racking is one of the most convenient to install storage systems. With basic knowledge of installation, you can easily install the system without spending extra labor costs.
  2. The system’s design is specifically kept following long, heavy, and bulky items that are difficult to store on a regular storage system.
  3. Additional arms may be added to accommodate a variety of shapes and sizes of storage.
  4. Products can be stored vertically up to 6 meters high.

What Are The Types Of Cantilever Racks?

A cantilever racking system is a versatile structure offered for warehouse storage needs. Mainly there are two types of cantilever racks available in the market. Generally, both systems are designed to store long items.


Roll-Formed Cantilever Racks

Roll-formed cantilever racks are designed to store various types of products. They are mostly constructed from coiled metal sheets that are rolled up to achieve a specific shape. The system comprises five components including, braces, bases, columns, arms, and pins. The system is not constructed to hold heavy-duty items like structural cantilever racks.

The extended arm-length capability provides good reach and simple access to stored objects with a forklift or other material handling equipment.


Structural Cantilever Rack

A structural cantilever rack is the second type of cantilever rack available in the market. The structure is constructed from structural steel I-beams that are specially shaped to hold a specific amount of weight. You may say the system is constructed to accommodate medium to heavy-duty items.

Generally, heavy-weight products like automobiles and car parts are stored on the system. The arms on structural cantilever racking systems are secured to the columns with a four-bolt connection welded in place to ensure structural stability.


What Are The Components Of a Cantilever Racking System?

Cantilever Uprights

The backbone of a cantilever rack is made up of vertically built support columns called cantilever uprights. The uprights are mounted on cantilever bases and flanked by cantilever arms, resulting in a full bay of cantilever rack.

These uprights are available in single or double-sided configurations. A single-sided rack allows items to be stored on the front only. At the same time, a double cantilever racking offers double storage capacity on each upright compared to single cantilever racking systems. It increases the storage space per square foot while reducing the overall cost of designing the structure.


Cantilever Rack Arms

Cantilever rack arms are constructed to stretch out from the upright to create space along the upright. The rack arms are adjusted with shelf levels to fit your needs. An arm can hold the material that may fall off the systems due to a lack of support. Some rack arms include a lip attached at the end of the arm to eliminate the risk.


Cantilever Braces

Cantilever braces are placed between upright to stabilize the structure. It also connects the uprights with one another and evenly distributes the weight throughout the structure.

Note: Cantilever braces are not for storage purposes.

What Is Heavy-duty And Light-duty Cantilever Racking?

Heavy Duty Cantilever Racking

Heavy-duty cantilever racking is ideal for items that require storage with no front column. The structure is constructed from vertical uprights with fixed horizontal arms and stoppers at the ends. The goods are stored horizontally either with the help of a forklift, truck, or crane.

It is specifically designed to offer safe storage for bulky, irregular-shaped, heavy items. A good example of such products is piping, rolls, flooring, appliances, and furniture.

Heavy-duty racking systems allow efficient use of warehouse space to accommodate maximum goods. With a well-constructed system, you can easily spot items even when they are pilled.

Additionally, you can store goods on one side or both sides of a heavy-duty racking system. To make the most out of it, you can use various components with the structure. To use the structure in an outdoor environment, external paint is available. Or you can ask for hot-dip galvanization to enjoy an everlasting corrosion-free structure.


Light Duty Cantilever Racking

A light-duty cantilever racking system is similar to heavy-duty cantilever racking with few differences. The major difference between a heavy-duty and light-duty cantilever is that it is cheaper and offers space-saving.

It is ideal for storing lightweight yet long items that cannot be stored on regular racking systems. The structure is designed for goods that need to be stored horizontally. A good example of such items is timber, pipe, and other long-length products.

A light-duty cantilever racking system offers easy to stock and access to the goods. Ideally, the system can be used independently or with an add-on to increase the storage capacity.

Like heavy-duty cantilevers, steel end stops are available to prevent the items from falling off the structure. The system can be customized as per the available space in a warehouse.


What Are The Accessories For Cantilever Racking?

The cantilever racking system is a versatile structure. Following are the accessories we offer to benefit your investment.

Fixed Stoppers: These are welded end plates used as a heavy-duty solution. As the name suggests, it is used to stop the items from rolling off the structure.

Removable Stoppers: Similar to fixed stoppers, removable stoppers are also offered to stop the items from rolling off the system. The only difference is that these stoppers can be removed or relocated whenever needed.

Arms For Coil Storage: Metal coils and reels may be safely and effectively stored using cantilever racking.

Steel Gratings: Steel grating can be put on the cantilever arms to prevent tiny goods from dropping between the arms.

Constructing a Roof: The cantilever and the contents are both protected by adding a roofing system. Protected from the elements underneath.

Bases on wheels: heavy-duty mobile carriages may also be equipped with cantilever racking. It increases the overall storage capacity of the structure.

  • Straight-line laser or chalk line
  • A permanent marker
  • Measuring tape
  • Socket wrenches

Step 1: Layout the rack footprint

To professionally install the cantilever rack, you need to start laying out the rack footprint on a surface. With the help of a chalk line, define the main aisles and edges of each cantilever baseline.

Step 2: Layout the bay on the floor

Now lay down the starter bay on the floor, including two columns, the necessary bases, and the necessary arms. For hardware requirements and torque specifications, consult your manufacturer’s schematics.

Step 3: Connect the base of the cantilever rack to the column.

Use the hardware that came with your cantilever rack system to connect the base of the cantilever rack to the column. Make sure the bolts are torqued properly.

Step 9: As needed, construct more adder bays.

Continue to erect and build adder bays to complement your starting bays using the procedures given in stages 1 through 8 until you have the perfect rack system and footprint.


What Are The Factors To Consider Before Purchasing Cantilever Racking?

Cantilever racking has recently gained popularity around the world. Many people make the mistake of purchasing the system without understanding how it works. To save you from spending your valuable investment on the wrong system, useless here is a list of factors to consider before purchasing.

  • The most important factor is to measure the available space in your warehouse. A cantilever rack is heavy and needs space to store goods safely.
  • Carefully evaluate the load of the system you plan to use the system for.
  • Calculate the required arm length of the load required to be stored, based on its depth.
  • Measure the height of the upright and the height between different levels to determine the number of arms needed.
  • From the center of one upright to the center of another, calculate the lateral spacing and load deflection. This will provide correct weight distribution and protect the structure from harm.
  • Determine the load-bearing capacity of the cantilever racking shelves to avoid overloading the system.

How To Prevent Products From Falling Off The Cantilever Racking System?

A cantilever rack includes arms that are typically straight or inclined. An inclined arm is designed to store items that are most likely to roll off. Such products include cylindrical items like tubing and piping. In contrast, straight arms are designed for stable products like steel sheets, cartons, skids, lumber, etc. 

The first thing you can do to keep your products safe is to choose the correct design for the items you plan to store. Other than that you can secure a cantilever rack arm with the help of a lip to prevent the goods from rolling off.

How Many Cantilever Rack Arms Are Needed For a Cantilever System, And How Should They Be Spaced?

It’s critical to utilize the correct number of arms in each cantilever rack bays to avoid deflection between the arms. A lack of support caused by not employing enough arms in your system exerts unnecessary useless strain on the arms, damaging the system before time.

You can understand the number of arms needed for a cantilever rack system through a simple test.

  • To replicate the cantilever arms, place two wooden blocks 2 feet apart on the floor.
  • Place your goods on top of these wooden blocks and examine them for any deflection or flex.
  • If you don’t see any deflection, a normal two-arm system should suffice. If there is no deflection, continue addition cantilever arms at 2 feet.
  • Brace sets are often sold in 1 foot wide increments, which is why you should first check for deflection using wooden blocks spaced at this distance apart. Never spread your arms wider than halfthe length of the material you’re storing. For example, if you’re storing items that are 8 feet long, the arms should be no more than 4 feet apart.



A cantilever racking system is an ideal storage system for warehouses with long items that need to be stored.
