Used Lumber & Cantilever Racks For Sale

Used Cantilever Racks

Single-Sided Cantilever Racks (Shown here configured for lumber and plywood storage)

Cantilever Racks (sometimes called pipe racks or lumber racks) offer fast and convenient handling of long, unwieldy stock including plywood, steel plate & pipe, PVC, furniture and more. The advantage of cantilever racks is a racking system that provides the user instant access to anything from one piece to a full load of material.

Cantilever racks and cantilever racking based systems, when used correctly, can be instrumental in creating a neat and orderly inventory system where previously none existed. The heavy-duty steel construction permits storage of pipes, tubes, steel stock and other long product(s) that must be kept raised off the floor.

In addition to providing support, the bases of the cantilever uprights can also be used for additional storage levels. Forklifts can easily load items onto and off of the arms. By purchasing additional cantilever rack uprights, cantilever racking arms, and/or brace sets you can easily add onto any of the existing cantilever rack systems we offer for sale.

Pro Tip
Pro Tip!

"A quick and dirty way to get beam capacity: Divide beam length by 180 to get Max Deflection. (96" Beam / 180 = .53") To use this number, take a measure of the floor to the bottom of the empty beams. Place a load on the beams and take the same measurement. As long as the difference between empty and loaded is less than your calculated number, you should be okay, however we recommend that you always check with the manufacturer's specs to be absolutely sure."

Frequently Asked Questions about Cantilever Rack

Roll-form cantilever rack is the preferred storage rack for light and medium storage due to its bolt-less design and lighter overall weight.

Structural cantilever rack is preferred for heavier loads when storing loads that weigh 1,500 lbs. or more. Structural cantilever rack is made from hot rolled c-channel structural steel. It uses additional hardware (nuts and bolts) for assembly. It is inherently heavier, stronger and can hold heavier loads than roll-form rack. It is more impact resistant than roll-form rack.

While roll-form rack is the rack of choice for light and medium storage, structural rack is often the preferred solution for higher density applications. Structural racks are thicker and the heavier construction offers improved resistance to impact from forklifts entering and exiting the racks.

You should consider using structural racks:

  • When heavier capacities (1,500 lbs or more per shelf) are being stored.
  • When storing traditionally heavy and bulky items such as plywood, lumber, pipe, bar stock, steel sheets and coils, sheetrock, etc.

Due to its heavier weight, structural cantilever rack costs more to ship than roll-form cantilever. Roll-form rack is less costly to ship because it’s lighter than structural racks with the same dimensions.

Due to its heavier weight and nut and bolt connections, structural cantilever racking may take longer to install, which could effect cost. Roll-form cantilever rack traditionally installs faster due to its bolt-less connection design, which allows for a fast and easy connection of the arms to the uprights.
