Guided Aisle Cantilever Racking

Guided Aisle Cantilever Racking consists of the same basic components as Conventional and Free Path racking systems.

What is Guided Aisle Cantilever Racking?

Guided Aisle Cantilever Racking consists of the same basic components as Conventional and Free Path systems, but with the runs positioned closer together to eliminate the waste of space of a wide aisle. The full range is manufactured in the UK at our purpose-built factory in Cannock, Staffordshire.

Long load products can be stored to a far greater height to ensure cubic space is utilised to the full.

Products are accessed using specialist trucks which are guided by guide-rail systems to avoid damage to the rack structure.

Cantilever Racks by Stakapal are designed to the SEMA Code of Practice for the design of Static Cantilever Racking and/or FEM 10-2-09 and/or BS5950 Part 5 and/or BS EN 1993 -1-3 (Eurocode 3).

  • Specialist side loading trucks or multi-directional reach trucks are required to operate within reduced aisle widths
