For years, cantilever construction has been employed in architectural and building projects all throughout the world. Because of its inherent strength, combined with its ease of construction and excellent practicality, it has remained a firm favorite in the storage industry.
Cantilevered structure differs from other types in that it does not rely on spars or lintels for support. Although cantilever constructions appear to be weak, they are highly sturdy and can support a great deal of weight.
The weight of the horizontal support is transferred to the contact point of the vertical support, where it is distributed and resisted by a combination of momentum and shear stress forces.
A cantilever rack is a storage system that uses a cantilever support arrangement for its individual racks or shelves in the warehouse and storage.
A load-bearing beam is supported at only one end with no other external braces in this system.
Individual rack supports are used in cantilever rack systems, and they are attached to upright members at one end using slot-and-tag or bolt-on fixtures. Because there are no extra oblique or vertical supports, the racks may readily accept materials that are longer than the span of the rack.
Cantilever racks can be built as single or double-sided pieces, and they’re simple to put together into modular assemblies.
The advantages of cantilevered racking over alternative rack and shelf storage systems are numerous.
A cantilever racking system, for example, can store loads significantly broader than its own span because it does not rely on vertical or oblique supports. Long loads, such as lumber boards, aluminum and plastic extrusions, steel tubes and bars, can be stored in this way.
Pallet jacks and forklifts can also be used to load and unload from the front of the rack.
Second, a cantilevered racking system can be freestanding or affixed to a suitable wall. The racks can be employed in a single or double-sided design with back-to-back shelves in free-standing cantilever constructions.
Finally, cantilevered racking solutions make the most of available floor space and come in a variety of sizes and weight capabilities. These can be easily customized to meet a wide range of storage requirements. They are also among the most cost-effective of all rack kinds due to their ease of construction.
Finally, cantilever racking systems are one of the most simple and quick storage alternatives. This makes them a good alternative for a variety of warehousing applications. A slot-and-tags assembly method is used by most smaller cantilever rack systems, which consists of a tag on the horizontal support that locks into a corresponding slot on the vertical member.
This ease of use translates to rapid and easy installation, as well as convenient storage of the racks when they are no longer in use.
Larger systems often use more sophisticated bolt-on horizontal beams, but they’re still easy to put together. Cantilever units are frequently designed to be modular, allowing many units to be bolted together to expand an existing system.
