Cantilever Bar Racks and Storage Solutions designed, manufactured and installed to last.

Sometimes, you don’t need the big stuff.  Our Cantilever Bar Racks are manufactured from hot rolled steel to the same high standards as our full sized Cantilever range and come in a high quality powder-coated finish.

Racks Industries free Standing Cantilever Bar Racks are specifically designed to be self-supporting.  The addition of cruciform sides to both single sided & double sided versions counteracts possible lateral movement, and the cantilever principal means that a rack under load should be restricted from tipping.  The units require no floor fixings, but each has a dedicated fixing point in the base foot to accept a through-bolt, should a “Belt & Braces” approach be desired.  Racks Industries Free-Standing Bar Racks are ideal for use as a “low rise, hand loaded system” i.e. not carrying weight at significant height and not considered “static” racking.

They are most often used as a picking location for lightweight bars, tubes or flats and ideal for stock which needs to be moved around to different workstations as and when needed. Flexibility is built in to the design. Apart from providing excellent stability, the bolted Cruciform base construction and allows conversion from single sided to double sided if the need for storage increases.

The clamped arms are infinitely adjustable to cope with a variety of product sizes. Each arm is designed to take a drop-down end stop for product safety, which can either be fitted prior to delivery, or retro-fitted if your needs change.

Of course, if you’re not planning on shifting stock around too much, our Bar Racks can also be converted into a braced run, suitable for permanent floor fixings. Our off the peg units are 2m tall and come with five arms, giving you 6 levels of storage with a S. W. L. of 500kg per arm. That’s a capacity of 2.5 tonnes per column side. We think that’s a pretty meaty capacity.

All in all, they cater for a wide variety of storage needs and are available in a range of finishes, including hot-dip galvanised for outdoor usage.

Frequently Asked Questions About Cantilever Bar Racks

Q. My stock is quite heavy... can your Bar Racks cope?

A. At 500kg per arm, a standard Bar Rack has a capacity of 2.5 tonnes per column side.  That’s pretty hefty.

Q. What stops stuff rolling off the arms?

A. We offer additional “Flipper” End-Stops which, when installed, prevent any stock from rolling or sliding off the arm level.  Ask about them when you enquire.

Q. These things sound perfect, but I'd be happier if they were fixed down like traditional racking... can that be done?

A. No problem at all.  Our Bar Racks can be manufactured to be floor fixed and braced, just like our full size cantilever range.
