Cantilever bearing

What is a cantilever bearing in logistics?

Cantilever bearings are special types of bearings that enable the storage of particularly bulky goods. The backbone of a cantilever warehouse is formed by the cantilever racks, also called long goods racks.

These consist of a stand and a base that rests horizontally against it. The cantilever arms are then attached to this base frame, which can be flexibly attached to the uprights. This means that even very bulky goods can be stored efficiently.

Cantilever racks are specially designed for the storage of, for example:

  • Metal bar
  • Tubes
  • Wooden panels
  • Whole machines
  • Profiles

What advantages do cantilever bearings offer in logistics?

A cantilever bearing brings many advantages:

  • Saving of space due to individual adaptation to different goods and sizes
  • Easy assembly: The individual elements are staggerable and can be assembled quickly and easily
  • Compacting possible: shelves can be mounted on sliding bases, making even better use of space
  • Versatility: Cantilever storage systems can store many different goods and raw materials
