If you’ve been working in the materials handling industry, you’d know that some stock is much harder to store than others. Whether they’re awkwardly shaped, incredibly long, or an irregular shape, it’s difficult to find a selective pallet racking system that neatly and safely stores these items.

In this blog, Erect-A-Rack discusses what types of awkwardly shaped stock industry professionals have to manage, and the best shelving options for them.

What are some difficult items to store?

There are a multitude of items that can give even the most seasoned materials handlers a headache, including many commonplace ones that would get used every day. These can include materials such as plasterboard, timber, furniture, carpet rolls, timber packs, pipes and steel bars. It’s important to have a storage solution that can hold such items as they will vary in weight, length, width and fragility.

What solutions are available?

One of Erect-A-Rack’s go-to solutions for awkwardly shaped stock is the versatile cantilever pallet racking. Perfect for bulky, atypically-shaped loads – be that wide, long, or anywhere in between – that don’t easily fit into standing racking systems. Cantilever racks have become a widely popular choice for storing awkward items and materials. Coming in two versions, heavy and light, cantilever racks are an independent structure. Users have the option to adjust the levels (arms) on one or both sides, so the racks can easily be adjusted according to the items you need to store. This is particularly useful for warehouses that trade in constantly changing stock.
