What is Cantilever Racking
Cantilever Racking is designed to store long items or larger items such as lumber, flooring, appliances, piping etc. If you have unusual sized items for storage, then Cantilever Racking is a great storage system for your needs.
The height can be adjusted to give a custom fit for your storage items. It can be arranged in either single or double sided racking, either back to back forming aisles or placed against a wall. These racks utilize a centre column with arms providing the actual shelf levels for storing items.
