Stretching Your Warehouse Flexibility – Cantilever Racks

There are many buzz words that get thrown around when talking about warehouse equipment and/or distribution – efficiency, profitability, productivity, quality – the list goes on and on. All those attributes are important, but one I'd like to focus on is flexibility. Being able to utilize warehouse storage equipment for multiple products and lengths can provide you with organizational flexibility.

Cantilever racks are designed to help you manage loads of varying length and proportion. A cantilever rack system is ideal in storing long or heavy items such as pipe, tubing or lumber. In addition furniture, carpet rolls or building materials odd-sized dimensions store exceptionally well and are removed without damage due to excessive maneuvering around obstructions.

Additional advantages of a cantilever rack system include:

  1. Compact - The lack of a front column saves horizontal space normally lost to rack structure which increases handling clearance.
  2. Selective - Any load or storage slot is immediately accessible.
  3. Economical - Both reduced handling times and increased space utilization makes cantilever racks more cost-efficient. Also, cantilever racks become more economical as load length increases.
  4. Adaptable: Cantilever racks can store nearly any type of load.
