How to Buy Cantilever Racks
Structural steel cantilever rack storage systems are multi-level, high density storage racks designed to handle hundreds of different types and sizes of products with freedom from column obstruction / upright interference. Cantilever storage racks offer more flexibility for placing and removing products. Cantilever offers the best solution when unobstructed access is required for longer dimensional products, such as carpet, lumber, Furniture, bar/plate stock and pipe. Varying & oversized products in legth can be stored using cantilever rack without loosing capacity as you can increase capacity / level by puting towers closer. Cantilever racks can also be decked for use with odd–sized bundles, crates or bulk items like furniture. Cantilever Rack consists of a series of structural steel arms bolted to large structural steel columns. Anchored by substantial bases and stabilizing cross braces along its back edge, this system is both strong and highly adjustable.
URS STRUCTURAL CANTILEVER RACK OFFERS FOLLOWING ADVANTAGES
DETERMINE LENGTH OF THE ARMS:-
Determine how many arms are required to support your load. Base this on the maximum lateral spacing of arms (due to load rigidity or weight) and in conjunction with the Arm Capacity Chart shown below. Individual arm capacity is determined by dividing the total load weight by the number of supporting arms. Arm length equals the depth of your load. Arm capacities are based upon uniform loads.
You can determine the number of load levels per upright considering:
Determine the Upright capacity by multiplying the desired number of arm levels by the capacity of the selected arms. A load can be stored on the base, however, this load is not included in the Upright capacity.
Minimum Upright height equal to:-
DETERMINE ARM SPACING:-
The distance between uprights determines the bracing width. If you have two arms under your load the Brace Panel would be one-half the load length, three arms under the load would be one-third the load length.
BRACING POSITION & SPACING:-
