Cantilever racking systems are an important storage solution for businesses that store long, heavy and bulky items such as bars, lumber, tubing, and pipes. Like other warehouse storage solutions, there is no one-size-fits-all pallet racking system. One cantilever rack cannot adequately meet the diverse needs of every warehouse, and this leads us to the importance of customizing cantilever racking to meet your business needs.
Every warehouse has its own unique needs. Customizing your cantilever rack can help you meet specific inventory needs, such as environmental conditions, fragility, or items that cannot be stacked. You can customize your cantilever racking system to fit your exact space, free up floor space, maximize both floor and vertical air space, and create safe and accessible traffic patterns for workers.
Before customizing your cantilever racking system, you must understand your business needs in-depth. This includes:
Understanding the types of products that will be stored helps determine the appropriate rack design, including the spacing, support mechanisms, and any additional features to be fit to the cantilever rack.
This will help design the cantilever rack with the necessary load-bearing capacity and spacing configurations to ensure it supports the weight of the items without compromising safety.
Understanding the volume of products that need to be stored is crucial in customizing a cantilever rack to determine the number of shelves, width, depth, and height of the rack or the accessories you need.
The layout, shape, and size of the warehouse can ensure that you choose a cantilever rack that is the right size and configuration for your needs.
There are different types of cantilever racks, which is why it is crucial to determine which type is best suited for your business needs. There are light-duty, medium, and heavy-duty cantilever racks. There are also cantilever racks on mobile bases. Some cantilever racks can also be placed on mobile bases for increased flexibility and space optimization.
