  •  Ensuring the components of the cantilever racking are thick and able to withstand heavy loads.

The components of the cantilever racking are made with a good thickness to ensure high load-bearing capacity, increasing the durability of the product. This is essential for industrial warehouses that handle large and heavy goods. Conversely, using weakly structured racks can lead to instability or the dangerous risk of collapse.

  •  Avoid self-installation of the cantilever racking.

To avoid mistakes, the installation process should be carried out by a team of skilled technicians with expertise and experience to ensure the quality and safety of the racking system.

  •  Install in suitable locations based on pre-arranged technical drawings.

Cantilever racking can be installed outdoors, allowing more flexibility in terms of space compared to the interior of the warehouse. However, since it is designed to store long and bulky items, it should be positioned in a suitable location to avoid obstructing warehouse operations.

Guidelines for operating cantilever racking

Advantages of Cantilever racking, which has left the front of the racks unimpeded by structural elements, allow forklifts to directly access and load/unload goods conveniently. Below are the basic steps for operating Cantilever racking in a warehouse:

  •  Step 1: Stack and place the goods directly onto the lifting forks of the forklift.
  •  Step 2: Move the forklift with the goods to the desired position and place the goods onto the cantilever arms of the rack.
  •  Step 3: When it is necessary to retrieve the goods, use the forklift to directly reach the desired location and lift the goods onto the forklift.

  •  Do not exceed the maximum load capacity of the Cantilever racking system.

To ensure safety and avoid damage that may affect the quality of the Cantilever racking, it is necessary to adhere to the specified load capacity. This will prevent situations such as deformation or dangerous collapse of the racks.

  •  Regularly check the racking system for timely repairs and maintenance.

Regularly checking the condition of the Cantilever racking is important. If any issues are detected, such as bending, denting, or loose screws, it is necessary to promptly report to the rack installation company for timely resolution.

Additionally, even in the absence of any issues during usage, it is recommended to perform periodic maintenance to maintain the quality and extend the lifespan of the racks.

  •  Be careful during the process of load/unload goods.

The most common cause of rack damage is collisions between the forklift and the racking system. Therefore, it requires careful operation by forklift drivers to minimize collisions with the racks.
