Cantilever Racking

Cantilever racking systems are the best solution for storing long or unwieldy loads. By using a system of uprights and load-bearing steel arms that are cantilevered out from the frame, products such as pipes or lumber can be stored lengthwise, resting on the arms.

As a result, these racking systems are commonly seen in home improvement stores to hold PVC piping, steel bar stock and other long loads. Additionally, cantilever systems are also ideal for storing exceptionally heavy objects such as boats or vehicles due to their easy forklift access and high capacities. 

Cantilever racking systems are highly customizable and can be manufactured to meet almost any specification or requirement. Adjustable arm spacing also provides exceptional flexibility if storage requirements change in the future – the arms can be moved to a new position on the upright to accommodate new products

Mid Florida Material Handling has 40+ years of experience in the racking industry and has regularly handled large-scale warehouse pallet racking installations. Cantilever racking systems are one of our specialties – contact us so we can find the right storage solution for your needs!

Cantilever Racking FAQs

Cantilever racking is a type of storage system designed for the organized and accessible storage of long, bulky, or irregularly shaped items. It features horizontal arms that extend outward from vertical columns, creating an open-front structure.

Cantilever racking is specifically designed for the storage of long or bulky items, allowing for easy loading and unloading without the need for horizontal obstructions like pallets. Traditional pallet racking is better suited for standard palletized goods.

The main components include vertical columns, horizontal arms, and diagonal bracing. The arms can be adjusted to accommodate different lengths of items.

Yes, cantilever racking systems are highly customizable. The length, height, and spacing of arms can be adjusted to fit the specific dimensions and weight capacities required for different types of items.

Yes, one of the advantages of cantilever racking is its modularity. The system can be adjusted or expanded to accommodate changes in inventory or storage requirements.

Cantilever racking can be designed for outdoor use, typically with materials that resist corrosion and withstand environmental conditions. It’s essential to consider the specific requirements of the outdoor environment.

The weight capacity depends on the design, material, and dimensions of the cantilever racking system. Our team can assist you in determining the correct weight capacity of your system. Call us at (407) 859-8750 to get started.

I my old forklift finally died and I went to find an inexpensive used replacement. Paul and his team were so friendly and honest that I was able to make a purchase that day. He had his team totally service it and insisted on including new tires at no charge. On top of that he even paid me something for my 1969 Toyota Forklift which a hauled away. These guys (and gals) are great!

I have been searching for a company that would sell a lesser amount of pallet storage systems to complete my storage at my office. These folks gladly did so. I drove to pick up the components, they had everything ready when I got there, smooth pick up. definitely would recommend them and use them again as well.
