Heavy Duty Cantilever – Description – Dexion Long Goods Handling

Cantilever racking does not have front uprights getting in the way of placing and retrieving loads. All levels are available to a forklift truck. The versatility of our Cantilever racking system makes it ideal for all types of work environments: from handcrafting to mass production and from D.I.Y store to retail distributor.

Storage Ideas

Cantilever racking is ideal for storing difficult and long items such as steel bars, pipes, tubes, packs of timber, furniture, and even white goods. The products are stored horizontally on the arms and handled either manually or by using forklift trucks or cranes.

Cantilever configurations

Cantilever racking is available in both single-sided and double-sided configurations. The double-sided rack provides maximum storage capacity on a single central column while the single-sided rack is designed to fit flush against a wall.

Being modular in nature, additional arms, uprights and braces may be added as storage requirements change.

All aspects of product design have been carried out in accordance with the recommendations of the FEM 10.2.09 normative and EN 1993-1-1:2005, Design of Steel Structures.

Heavy Duty Cantilever – Range – Dexion Long Goods Handling

This cantilever racking system utilises columns and bases, together with horizontal arms with stops on the end. They create a complete assembly that can then be positioned at varying spacing using horizontal spacers and diagonal bracing sets to form a complete structure.

Cantilever racking can also be installed on a MOVO heavy-duty mobile trolley. Please see additional information on the mobile system from our Mobile pallet racking.
