Cantilever Racking Suppliers Dublin & Ireland
Cantilever racking does not have front uprights getting in the way of placing and retrieving loads. All levels are available to a forklift truck. The versatility of our Cantilever racking system makes it ideal for all types of work environment: from hand crafting to mass production and from D.I.Y store to retail distributor.
Cantilever racking is ideal for storing difficult and long items such as steel bars, pipes, tubes, packs of timber, furniture and even white goods. The products are stored horizontally on the arms and handled either manually or by using forklift truck or cranes.
Cantilever racking is available in both single sided and double sided configurations. The double sided rack provides maximum storage capacity on a single central column while the single sided rack is designed to fit flush against a wall.
Being modular in nature, additional arms, uprights and braces may be added as storage requirements change.
Cantilever Racking, Pigeon-hole racks, Timber locker, A-Frame racks and racks for metal sheet are specially designed to store long goods and items of varying lengths.
They are ideal for the safe and organised storage of long and heavy loads. They are also ideal systems for storing steel bars, pipes, tubes, furniture and packs of timber. Some of them are also suitable for storing boards, metal sheets or large and valuable items such as crates or boxes and even white goods. The best solutions provide a clear layout with easy access, as they do away with the need for vertical uprights at the front of the racking and use the minimum of space, all at low cost.
Cantilever racks are an ideal system for storing several different types of item and materials that often goes misunderstood in terms of usage and design. Primarily designed for longer, thinner items, cantilever racks offer many specific advantages and uses that regular shelving is hard-pressed to provide. If you’re wondering if cantilever racks are appropriate for your facility, here’s a few different ways to use them and the benefits they provide:
Storing Hard-to-Shelve Items
The design of cantilever shelving allows for the storage of longer, thinner items such as steel racks, beams, lengthy pieces of lumber, or even pre-packed furniture. While these pieces have traditionally proved difficult and cumbersome to store using traditional shelving and rack methods, the open design and overall length of cantilever racks is perfect for any tall, skinny items you need kept off the floor.
Easy Access and Flexibility
The design of a cantilever rack includes two smaller racks on either side of a lengthy i-beam with nothing directly above and no traditional ‘shelf’ to speak of. This more open design allows for much easier access, especially on the higher shelves with forklifts or similar equipment. In addition, the design allows for much more specific item placement and retrieval, meaning you can keep more SKUs and specific items on cantilever racks without worrying about them being buried behind other pallets of items you don’t need immediately.
Save Money and Time
Cantilever racks can help you both save effort and get things done more quickly. The design allows for easier item storage and handling, enabling workers to find parts they need more quickly or load them on the shelves far more easily than with other types of racks. The increased storage space they afford, both depth- and length-wise, also allows for more economic space usage by freeing up space in other areas and allowing for deeper storage to store more items.
