Cantilever racking is a type of storage system designed to maximize storage space, particularly for long and bulky items such as pipes, lumber, and steel bars.
One of its main advantages is its efficiency in terms of accessibility and organization. With cantilever racking, items are stored on arms that extend from vertical columns, allowing for easy access and retrieval of items.
Another advantage of cantilever racking is its versatility. It can be customized to fit the specific needs of a business, with adjustable arms and columns that can be modified to accommodate different sizes and weights of materials. This makes it an ideal solution for businesses with changing inventory needs or those dealing with a wide variety of products.
Its design allows for a high storage density, meaning that more items can be stored in less space. This can lead to significant savings in terms of real estate costs, as well as reduced labor costs due to the ease of access and retrieval.
