If you are looking for a good deal on used warehouse shelving you’ve come to the right place. We offer both roll formed and structural cantilever racking. Cantilever rack is the kind of rack that you may see in your local Lowes or Home Depot lumber departments. It resembles a tree with towers, arms and a base.
We buy and sell only quality used cantilever racking. They are so popular that sometimes we run out of them – in which case we will offer you a special low price on our new racks.
Just a little refresher on used cantilever racking, we’ll call it Cantilever 101. There are two styles of cantilever racking: 1. Structural cantilever rack (as shown in the pictures on this page). It is made of structural I-beams and has a bolted connection. It is considered more durable but in all honesty is a little more complicated and time consuming to install. 2. Roll Formed cantilever rack which is made of tubular steel and is equally heavy duty, maybe a little less expensive than structural and easier to install.
Cantilever rack has 3 primary components: 1. Single or Double sided CANTILEVER TOWERS that include stackable base. Single sided is installed along a wall, double sided is installed away from a wall, maybe in the middle of the warehouse and accessed from both sides. 8′ and 12′ tall towers are the most popular tower height. 2. CANTILEVER ARMS are the horizontal members that support the load. They are typically offered in lengths of 24″, 36″, 48″ and 60″ in length. 48″ cantilever arms are the most popular length. 3. X-BRACE PANEL SETS are used to join cantilever towers together in a row. They are offered in 36″, 48″, 60″ and 72″ widths. The width you choose will ultimately determine how far the towers and arms are spaced from one another. Choose the brace panel size that best fits the length of bundle you are storing. If you tell us lengths of the bundles you are storing we will make a recommendation on the appropriate brace panel size for your needs.
Let’s make sure we are talking the same language. An example of a proposed layout could be 1 section of 3 – 20′ single sided towers with stackable base plus 3 – 48″ arm levels using 60″ braces. Towers must be anchored to the concrete floor. Material is quoted non-seismic. Please specify if material must meet seismic conditions. Make sure the arms will not overload the upright with the capacities show above. Check to make sure the material being stored on the arms will have no deflection. Please note point loading of arms will reduce the capacities of the arms.
