All cantilever and lumber rack systems require the following components:
Cantilever rack uprights - The main vertical structural component in any cantilever rack installation
Cantilever rack arms - Cantilever arms make up the levels
Cantilever bracing - Horizontal braces or x-braces go between uprights and stabilize the rack
A typical cantilever storage shelving system consists of uprights, bases, arms and bracing (horizontal and/or x-bracing styles depending upon the size of the rack). Arms and bases can be installed on the front side only, which is known as single sided cantilever racking, or on both the front and back sides, which is known as double sided cantilever racking. Depending upon the space you have available and your individual needs, the configurability of cantilever racking systems are endless.

Heavy Duty Cantilever Racking & Lumber Racks - Store Plywood, Lumber, Veneer, Sheet Stock
Lumber rack (also referred to as cantilever rack or timber racking) is heavy duty storage shelving that is designed for storing long and awkward items or materials such as lumber, piping and plywood. Lumber racks make accessing these materials much easier because there is nothing in the front of the rack to restrict reaching the stored materials with a forklift.
Lumber racks are designed for either single sided or double sided use. Single sided racks store materials on the front side only, where double sided racking uses both the front and back sides.
With structural cantilever, shelf supports, or "arms", extend off the supporting upright column towers. Arms can be spaced 3, 4 or 5 feet apart and the loads rest equally over structural shelf brackets. Loads are center-spaced and supported by the lumber racking system's load support arms, which protrude from the upright towers at equally-spaced heights up to six levels or more.
These load arm supports are designed to ensure storage space with equally distributed weight over the length of lumber and similar items being stored. Heavy duty support of loads is what makes cantilever lumber storage rack the ideal storage system solution for wood, lumber, plywood, sheet rock, wood veneer, vertical bars, tool holders and similar items.
