Used Cantilever Racks

Used cantilever racks are ideal for storing bulky materials such as PVC or metal pipes and lumber. They make it easy to store your product and just as easy to retrieve it when needed. Because of this, used cantilever racks are a popular solution for many businesses that need heavy duty shelving and warehouse storage.

What are Cantilever Racks?

Used cantilever racks are designed to support heavy loads of industrial materials such as lumber or metal piping. They are especially suited for storing materials that are bulky or oddly shaped and sized.

Types of Cantilever Racks


Used structural cantilever racks are mainly for medium-to-heavy loads. Made for industrial use, they are ideal for storing long and problematic loads aluminum sheets, pipes, or lumbar. The steel components ensure that the racks provide superior strength and that the racks can withstand the enormous pressure often put on them.


Made of a steel composition, I-beams can be configured in multiple warehouse shelving levels. Often holding up to 20,000 pounds, they are secured with 5 bolted connections to the columns and arms. We offer different arm and column sizes that can be configured to best handle whatever load and materials you are storing.

Light Duty

Light duty used cantilever racks are ideal for hand loading inventory. They are an economical system designed specifically for manual loading of products or equipment and do not require the use of a forklift.

Used Cantilever Rack Components


The base is the anchor of any used cantilever rack system. The base supports the upright column or tower. The size of the base will depend on rack capacity and arm size.

Columns (Verticals, Upright Towers)

Columns, towers, or other vertical structures are mounted onto the used cantilever rack’s base to give support to the arms that are connected to the column. Capacity and height will vary depending on what and how much you are storing.


The arms support the materials stored on the used cantilever racks. There are a variety of arm capacities and styles, making used cantilever racking systems customizable for any application. Arms can support decking options such as plywood platforms, wire mesh decking, or steel decking.

Bracing (Horizontal and Diagonal)

Cantilever racking systems are stabilized by cross bracing. The widths and lengths of the bracing are determined by a combination of the type of product or products to be stored and the system’s design.
