Types of racking system- Part I

Cantilever racking:

A medium to extremely heavy-duty storage option is cantilever racks, which include load-bearing arms fastened to a steel column. These frames remove all structural features from the front of the racks, allowing users direct pick access to the merchandise.

Furniture, timber, tubes, fabric rolls, and pipes are all conveniently stored with cantilever racking, which is the best storage option for long or unusually shaped items.

These cantilever racking systems come in roll-formed and structural steel designs and are intended for mild to heavy load applications.

This multilevel storage system’s strength, stability, and safety are better thanks to its design and engineering. All parts have been painted with a tough coating for a finish that resists scratches and has an unrivaled professional look.


-Broad ranges of load capabilities for common or quake-resistant applications.

-There is no limit to the amount of horizontal area that can be used.

-2-inch vertical arm spacing that is adjustable.

Mezzanine racking:

Your business may maximize the vertical space of a warehouse by doubling or tripling the useful surface area using mezzanine floor racking systems. Adding mezzanine work platforms may be the most economical option to increase warehouse storage space without incurring the cost of a building expansion.

It’s crucial to take into account access points, work processes, products, and handling techniques when creating a mezzanine level so that your system is specifically thought out. It is possible to totally disassemble and reuse steel mezzanine systems. With practically limitless potential uses in any industrial context, the construction, proportions, and position are all freely modifiable.
