Due to the increasing number of physically manufactured products, the location of the warehouse becomes particularly precious. How to maximize the space and achieve the best storage requirements? For companies with long products and raw materials, cantilever racking is the most suitable. Why? The following is a detailed analysis by Warehouse Shelving Manufacturers.
Cantilever racking is an important form of shelving. Cantilever racking is suitable for storing long materials, ring-shaped materials, plates, tubes and irregular goods. Cantilever racking can be single-sided or double-sided. Cantilever rack has the characteristics of stable structure, strong load-bearing capacity and high space utilization.
Cantilever rack columns are mostly made of H-beam or cold-rolled steel, cantilever beam is made of square tube, cold-rolled steel or H-beam, cantilever and column are plugged or bolted together, base and column are bolted together, and base is cold-rolled or H-beam. Cantilever Racking is suitable for storing long materials, ring materials, plates, pipes and irregular goods. The cantilever beam is mostly H-beam or cold-rolled steel, and the cantilever beam is square tube, cold-rolled steel or H-beam, and the cantilever is plugged with the column. Or bolted to the column, and the base is made of cold-rolled steel or H-beam. Goods can be accessed by forklift, mobile vehicles or manually. The height of the shelf is usually less than 2.5 meters. The length of the cantilever is within 1.5 meters and the load per arm is usually less than 1000 kg. This type of shelving is mainly used in machinery manufacturing and building material supermarkets. With the addition of shelves, it is especially suitable for warehouses with small space, low height, easy management and large view of the general shelves.
Compared with similar shelves, it has higher utilization efficiency. According to the load-bearing capacity, it can be divided into three types: light-weight, medium-weight and heavy-duty cantilever shelving. Cantilever racking is the ideal solution for storing large volumes, loose or other special products. With one arm and two arms, cantilever racking can efficiently store lumber, pipes, strips and other similar products. Cantilever racks are special racks with long shelves created by installing external cantilevers on conventional supports.
Cantilever racking is a special type of shelving type. It is formed by installing cantilever on the column. So, is there a limit to the height of cantilever shelving? What is the maximum that can be reached?
Lightweight Shelving Suppliers can tell you here that there is a limit to the height of cantilever racking, which is generally controlled at less than 6 meters, depending on the choice of storage methods. When manual loading and unloading is the main, the height of the shelf is controlled within 2.5 meters; while when forklift loading and unloading is the main, the height of the shelf is controlled within 6 meters. At the same time, the length of the cantilever is controlled within 1.5 meters and the load of each arm is within 1000 kg. Of course, the specific size and load are selected according to the customer's characteristics and requirements, and the warehouse structure, material characteristics, warehouse environment, etc. will affect the final result.
The above are the characteristics of cantilever racking, and the height limit of cantilever racking, hope it can help you.
