Single Sided Cantilever Racking
Single sided cantilever racking is a type of industrial storage system designed as solution for storing long and bulky items such as pipes, timber, panel products, steel bars, extrusions, and more. It is constructed with vertical steel columns with horizontal arms that extend out from the columns to support and store items. It’s a simple yet adjustable and effective storage option.
The term ‘single-sided’ means that the racking system only has arms on one side, allowing it to be placed against a wall or other structure. The design of single sided cantilever racking maximises available storage space while minimising the amount of floor space needed for the system.
Cantilever racking is ideal for businesses storing long and heavy items, with a range of arm lengths and loading capacities available whilst offering easy access to products. It is commonly used in warehouses, manufacturing facilities, timber sheds and yards.
Space required for Single Sided Cantilever Racking
The overall area required for any single sided cantilever racking installation varies depending on the specific needs of the user and the size of the items being stored. The height, depth and length of the racking system can all be customised to meet each individual customers storage needs.

Once single sided cantilever racking is installed
Single sided cantilever racking is a versatile system that can be adjusted to meet changing stock profiles. Stakapal’s arms have a wedge pin system that makes arm relocation quick and easy whilst relevant loading capacity is adhered to.
Stakapal also offer annual SARI racking inspections for all single sided cantilever racking systems that were originally designed and installed by ourselves. These can be booked directly with Stakapal and will be carried out by one of our in-house Inspectors. Following the SEMA traffic light system, we record categories that are Green, Amber or Red Risk. A full written report will be then issued, along with our proposals for any action that needs to be implemented.
