The cantilever rack system on the compact pallet racks were designed specifically to maximize the industrial facility's existing floorspace and double their long stock storage capacity in the same space.

The compact pallet racks save space by converting static forklift access aisles into moving and dynamic storage space. The movable aisle on the cantilever rack system is 18' wide, which gives employees plenty of room to move and store plywood, lumber, and other long stock storage safely and without fear of damaging the system or the products stored on it. The company is able to store plywood, sheet rock, drywall, rods, long pieces of wood, lumber, long items with side access, and much more in one convenient and accessible storage area.

The compact pallet racks, which can be up to 96' long, move sideways along floor tracks with just the push of a button or by remote control. Before the cantilever rack system, the storage area had a number of 18' static access aisles with only a few forklifts capable of accessing stored materials due to space constraints. The compact system has safety features to prevent the aisles from being closed while there are people or obstructions within the aisle.

The cantilever rack system on compact pallet racks has helped the industrial facility avoid new building construction costs and has helped decrease their ongoing operational costs by optimizing their storage floor space. The unique arm system of the cantilever racks allow for easy front loading without obstruction, and the structural steel components of the racks provide virtually unlimited weight load options. The cantilever rack arms can also be easily adjusted due to punched holes that run the full height of each vertical column.
