Heavy-Duty Storage with Strength & Durability to Store Products of any Dimension or Weight
Dexco® Structural Cantilever Racking Systems offer the strength, durability and layout to store products of practically any dimension or weight. They’re particularly ideal for materials that are wide or bulky, and thus difficult to store on traditional pallet racks. And because we use structural steel, our designs can easily accommodate numerous adjustable arms to maximize your floor space and can be engineered to handle virtually any load.
Dexco Cantilever Storage Racks comprise single- or double-sided columns that support vertically adjustable arms. These arms are bolted securely to the columns and can be angled to retain loads. A horizontal base helps stabilize the structure and supports the bottom load. This type of storage system offers many advantages, including:
Ross builds cantilever racking systems based on the client’s storage needs. Our engineers can determine the ideal bay and beam dimensions to accommodate your company’s materials. Each I-beam cantilever rack also has an open front that increases the range of object lengths that you can store.
The open faces on our I-beam cantilever racks enable easy material transfer to and from each rack. We can develop your racking system with front layouts that optimize movement for your specific materials. Our engineers will consider the equipment that you use and shape of your material to simplify the transfer process.
Both standard and custom cantilever racking designs come with adjustable arms designed to accommodate your company’s materials. They feature mounting locations in the distance intervals you specify which enable you to arrange the rack’s arms at the load heights you need. Adjust arms at 3- or 4-inch increments depending on the design you request. Combined with our custom rack designs tailored to your specifications, these adjustment capabilities provide flexibility when you need to load new materials into your system.
Every Dexco industrial I-beam cantilever racking system is engineered with a modular design that lets you change configurations or increase capacity after the rack’s initial installation. You can add bays to make room for more materials as your storage needs increase.
Cantilever racking systems make good use of limited space and are designed to be cost-effective. Your cantilever shelving unit’s return on investment lies in its ability to improve your productivity. These systems will free up floor space and organize your materials to make your storage operations faster and safer.
Dexco cantilever racks can offer solutions for almost any difficult-to-manage storage space. Our custom engineering capabilities enable us to develop cantilever racks that integrate with your workspace and materials. We can also find ways to assist you in storing exceptionally heavy, bulky or unusually shaped materials. Let us create a racking system that resolves your existing space issues.
With an I-beam cantilever rack system, you can multiply your vertical storage capacity. By expanding your vertical storage space, you can maximize your facility’s material storage capabilities. You have the ability to extend your storage capacity without using any additional floor space.
A Dexco cantilever rack system integrates well with equipment such as forklifts and automated retrieval systems. Your staff can drive heavy equipment to the racks and optimally access material for pick up or drop off. You can also use a crane or another automated system to carry loads off of and onto the racks. We will work with you to develop a racking configuration that accommodates the material transfer equipment and systems in your facility.
Choose from standard designs or custom engineering. Standard designs offer the best value and shortest lead times.
Customers also love that our cantilever rack storage systems are available in a variety of finishes. Many of our outdoor storage racking clients love that we provide a galvanized option to help with the durability and longevity of their racking systems. Contact us for more information on our available finishes.
Businesses in manufacturing, heavy industry and the supply chain use Dexco racks to store materials such as:
Dexco Rack Systems are engineered using American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) standards, which were developed to guide the design of large steel structures such as bridges and buildings. The stringent nature of these standards, coupled with Ross Technology’s conservative approach to structural rack design, mean you can be confident that your people and products are safe and secure.
All rack arms and columns are manufactured using wide flange beams with a 50 KSI minimum yield, offering greater strength and durability compared to roll-formed steel. As a result, our racks better resist damage from material handling equipment and provide larger load capacity within a given space.
Customers who require the best lead times and value opt for our standard industrial I-beam cantilever racking systems. Common features for our heavy-duty cantilever racks include:
As part of the standard manufacturing process, we apply a powder-coated finish in-house to a high level of quality control. This coating provides basic protection from rust and wear.
You can request a custom I-beam cantilever rack system to meet your company’s needs. Our engineers will partner with you to develop a racking system tailored to your work site. As a custom I-beam cantilever rack manufacturer, we can offer features like:
To increase your racking system’s defense against corrosion and damage and to extend its lifespan, you can request a hot-dip galvanized coating. This finish offers superior protection in demanding conditions.
Our engineers and manufacturing facilities adhere to universal design and quality standards such as:
To ensure that our business and manufacturing operations meet the highest standards of quality, we maintain ISO 9001:2015 certification.
Columns and arms are bundled to make installation simple and shipping cost-effective. Detailed installation manuals are provided for your installation crew. Ross also offers installation services – please contact us for more details.
Semi-annual maintenance is recommended to 1) inspect structural components and welds for damage caused by overloading or forklift equipment 2) tighten or replace missing bolts and anchors and 3) confirm racks are plumb.
Ross offers both standard and custom engineered rack designs for a wide range of weight and capacity requirements. Standard designs offer the best value and shortest lead times.
Ross warrants that all of its manufactured products shall remain free of defects in material and workmanship under normal use for a period of one year from the date of delivery.
