How To Build Your Cantilever Racking
Step 1: What will you be storing?
Determine what kind of product you will be stocking.
- Weight Load
- Is deflection possible? (Deflection is caused when supports holding items are placed far apart, allowing the product to bend)
- How much of the product will be stored per level?
Step 2: How much of the product will be stored at each level? How will they be stacked?
Evaluate how much of the product or how many stacks you plan to place per level. Take the size and weight into account in step 1 to determine what measurement will be best to provide to us.
Step 3: Do you want a Single-Sided Cantilever Rack, Double-Sided Cantilever Rack, or both?
Single-Sided Cantilever Rack is primarily purchased when placing the racking system against a wall to stock products and materials.
Double-Sided Cantilever Racks are placed in parts of the warehouse where both sides of the racking system are accessible for forklifts.
Step 4: What is the size of the area the cantilever racking will be placed in?
Measure the space you will like to place the cantilever racking.
You will be measuring the ceiling height and the length of the floor space. One of the most important things you will need to find out is the distance you will like between each tower so the product you are storing does not deflect or bend.
