Cantilever racks are ideal for storing and keeping non-palletized materials safe and dry. Used to store everything from furniture to lumber, steel bars, pipes, tubing, and a wide range of long, awkwardly shaped or heavy items, cantilever racks are a space-saving and efficient way to organize your warehouse space.
So much warehouse space is wasted by horizontal storage. Posts, columns, and shelving can needlessly take up a large portion of your usable storage area. If you need to store oddly-shaped and sized items, such as pre-packed furniture, cantilever racks provide advantages that conventional shelving simply cannot match.
Long, thin items such as piping, tubing, steel racks, beams, and lumber can be difficult to store in a typically designed warehouse. Cantilever shelving provides an open design that is highly visible, accessible, and easy to load and unload. For any items that need to be stored safely off of the floor, cantilever racking provides a solution.
A cantilever racking system includes racks on each end of an I-beam. There is no actual shelving to speak of, giving you unobstructed access to your goods with any type of forklift or other equipment. You will also be able to separate and place items for better visibility and retrieval, resulting in the ability to store more SKUs in less space. you will never again have to worry about things being buried behind other items, out of sight, out of mind.
Cantilever racks save you time and money
One of the biggest advantages to using cantilever racks in your warehouse is the easy access they provide. The open design of cantilever racking allows excellent line-of-sight, which your workers will love as they will be able to find items more easily and accurately. You will also be able to store more items in less space, freeing up square footage to take on more inventory and/or store additional items as needed.
Why floor stacking is not a viable solution
If you have been using a floor stacking system in your warehouse, you are probably used to the sight of piles of goods littering your warehouse floor. Over time, things get harder to find and the entire footprint of your space becomes cluttered. Think about all the vertical space you are not using at all – space that cantilever racking can take advantage of!
While floor stacking has a lower cost of entry and it may have been considered a “temporary” strategy when you first established your facility, the money you saved initially is simply not sustainable. Cantilever racks store items vertically, allowing you to make use of the entire height of your warehouse. Cantilever racks allow you to stack items all the way up to the ceiling, providing a safe and stable way to store a virtually endless variety of items.
Easy to install, configure, and reconfigure
Since cantilever racks have no shelves, it is easy to adjust the height, angle, and position of the arms. This reduces handling time and allows you to get more done in less time. When you can configure your racks exactly as you need them, stock is more accessible, enhancing productivity and accuracy across the board.
