Cantilever Systems

Cantilever structures are storage systems where loads are supported by cantilever “arms.”

Industrial cantilever racks are similar to traditional pallet racks with one exception – the front upright and supporting beams are eliminated.

What Is A Cantilever?

A cantilever is a horizontal beam supported at only one end (Fixed End).

The same beam carries a load at the other end (Free End).
