Cantilever racking is specially designed to store long or varying length items, such as metal beams, pipes, moulding, wooden boards, metal and plastic sheets among other materials. The system basically consists of columns with a vertical beam and one or two horizontal beams at the base to provide stability. A series of arms is attached on which the load is placed. Loads may be handled manually when they are lightweight, or by using lift-trucks or other appropriate lifting systems when heavy items are involved.
Spanco offers a complete range of cantilever racking systems for the storage of long goods. For loads varying from 50 to 2500 kg per cantilever arm and for most types of long goods, an optimised storage solution can be provided.
Typical long goods are metal and plastic tubes, wooden boards, hot rolled steel profiles. The construction is made of hot rolled steel profiles in various sizes.
