Cantilever Rack

Cantilever rack is a rack system utilizing columns (uprights) with arms cantilevered off of them. Systems can be either single-sided or double-sided. Double-sided also utilizes only one column but arms are attached to each side.

Advantages

  • Good where long, clear openings for product is required
  • System can allow for different length product to be stored on each level
  • Very popular in building material/plumbing/furniture industries where product is not stored on traditional pallet and can be very long

Disadvantages

  • Generally requires very large aisles to accommodate picking and put away
  • Although double-sided can utilize same number of columns as single-sided, it requires multiple wide aisles to access.
