The timber racking benefit

Cantilever systems work particularly well for timber racking. When it comes to material like timber, it’s vital that proper storage is maintained. This ensures longer shelf life, reduces wastage and ultimately retains the bottom line of your business.

The cantilever method will both facilitate better protection and increase storage capacity while freeing up floor space for timber racking. The racking system works as it caters to storing long items horizontally. Timber is best stored in a horizontal arrangement where the risk of sagging or bowing is significantly reduced. Cantilever racking also allows better air circulation and along with less weight placed on the timber, helping to preserve its condition.

What should you pay attention to when purchasing Cantilever Racking?

In your design you should be considering the height of the existing building and the reach of your forklift. This will dictate the cantilever racking systems that can fit in the upright size of your space. 

Another way to design the cantilever shelves is to choose the arm size and stick with it. If you know the size of your products and there will never be any variation on those measurements then you’re set. Your products will need clearance of 200mm so that they are not overloaded.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a cantilever racking system?

Cantilever racking is a self-supporting handling solution for storing bulky, irregularly shaped or long-length loads. These systems are ideal for holding timber, plasterboard, furniture, pipes, steel bars, carpet rolls plus a range of other products and materials. Customers can choose from either light or heavy versions based on their needs.

What is a cantilever shelf?

Designed to provide a safe and simple storage solution for awkward items, cantilever shelving is a popular option for warehouses. Cantilever shelving is used to improve the efficiency of a warehouse and can carry a wide range of long-length items. These products are made from high-quality structural steel for extreme strength and durability.

How do you make a cantilever rack?

Cantilever racks are best installed by a professional team that can take into account your storage needs and the layout of your warehouse or factory. Expert installers will adjust the arms of the cantilever racks and position them to allow for easy access and to maintain integrity of the beams. This will ensure that your cantilever racks are safe and strong enough for all storage requirements.

How do you measure a cantilever rack?

Anyone looking to measure for a cantilever rack will need to take into account the length of the items that are to be stored. Doing so will prevent deflection of the beams and ensure that your setup is able to safely hold materials. As a basic rule, the load should overhang the outer or end arms by approximately half the distance of how far apart the upright posts are.

How much weight can a cantilever support?

The amount of weight that a cantilever can support will vary based on how far apart the arms are positioned. More arms positioned within a small distance can support more weight. For example, to hold 6m lengths of wood planks with a pack weight of 1,000kg, you could use four arms to support the load, with each carrying 250kg.

How do you calculate cantilever load?

You can calculate cantilever load based on the distance and amount of arms that you use. The arms act as a support for the structure and ensure that it can adequately hold the materials in place. More arms allow for more weight, while less arms allow for less weight. Always speak with an expert for the best advice when it comes to calculating cantilever loads.
