Cantilever racking and metal bar storage racks
Metal bar storage racks
Metal bar is usually stored on cantilever racking either single or double sided cantilever racking, this provides a flexible storage solution. The arms can be fitted with stop ends to prevent round bar from rolling back off the arms of the racks.
It is usually loaded by fork lift truck or hand loaded but is not really suitable to be loaded by overhead crane as other items stored on the racks do not allow free access. Here at 2h storage we offer a choice of systems and can provide sliding shelves for cantilever racks. This allows engineering firms and steel stock holders to quarantine items and batches of stocks of heavy bar or tube.
For example the sliding shelves can be loaded for individual jobs or deliveries, this negates the need to lay out bar and tube at ground level consuming large areas of stores or workshop and creating a tripping and forklift hazard.
