Cantilever racking is an exceptional storage system that allows consumers to store long, bulky or awkward materials that are difficult to store due to their size. Cantilever racking assists with storing product vertically and leaving valuable floor space clear of product.

There are many characteristics that help identify which type of cantilever racking is right for you. The process of deciding what style and/or sizes can be overwhelming.  Here at SJF, our Solutions Specialists are here to assist you with this process.

In order for our Solutions Specialists to help you identify which cantilever rack if right for you, a few questions need to be answered.
