Storing long items? Want to maximise your floor space? You need cantilever racking – and MACRACK has the best solution available.
Cantilever racking is one of our most popular products for a good reason. It’s sometimes referred to as Christmas Tree Racks because of the side profile looking like a Christmas Tree. However, rest assured we sell cantilever racks all year round – not just during the festive season!
What Is Cantilever Racking?
Cantilever racking is a pallet racking derived storage system. Cantilever racking combines the frame of a standard pallet racking system with the addition of solid arms and a bolted base making it ideal for storing timber, extrusions, pipes and other long loads.
The braces that separate the uprights in the frame of a cantilever racking system can be adjusted to be closer together to increase the weight load capacity or further apart for the storage of larger items. The length of the arms can also be customised to fit any load.
About Cantilever Racks
Cantilever systems are based around 4 components:
- First is the base, which disperses weight into the ground – this is Dyna-bolted to the ground to prevent it from moving.
- Second is the frame that holds everything up and needs to be solid.
- Third is the arms, which come in a variety of lengths and weight capacities.
- Last is the cross beams, which space out the frames and allow bigger or smaller gaps depending on what product is being stored.

Customer service is exceptional. The staff are very friendly and helpful when I had any questions and queries. They provided me with all the information I needed and some that I didn’t even know I needed. When I organized something with them, they did exactly what they said they would do and they were always polite and punctual. The price is very competitive and I would recommend Macrack to anyone needing Racking Solutions.

The co-ordination was great and they fitted in with our tight schedule. Any query was answered promptly. Pricing was very competitive as well.
Customised Cantilever Racks to Suit Your Business
MACRACK uses a frame-derived solution for our cantilever racks, which involves using our famous pallet racking uprights to create an adjustable system for storing goods. This allows us to be extremely flexible in what can be stored, how much can be stored, and how much weight you can put on it. Unlike many other systems, the MACRACK system can be tailored to suit your exact requirements. For instance, we can adjust the distance between the uprights, saving you money by reducing the amount of frames needed to store your product. Alternatively, we can put more in to boost the weight capacity.
Other customisation options we offer include arm variations. We can provide a wide range of arm lengths, changing how much weight an arm can hold and how many you want per frame (i.e. the number of levels).
We often get asked, “How much for a cantilever rack?” Well, the answer isn’t that simple because everyone requires different performance capabilities. Some may want a short rack with 2 arms, while others may want a 5m-high rack with 8 arms. We can cater to all because our system is so flexible. This is why you should talk to a professional when buying a cantilever system, and you should never feel forced into using something that isn’t perfect for you.
We tailor-make our A-frame racks to suit our clients’ needs. The standard A-frame sizes are:
Manufactured Locally for Aussie Businesses
All our products are 100% Australian-made – a fact that we are unashamedly proud of. We support Australian businesses and you should too. We find that a lot of other companies import from overseas and the quality is just not the same. We know the quality of our racking is exceptional, which is why we offer a lifetime guarantee on all our products.
The frames we use for our cantilever racks are made from pre-galvanised steel, which means they will never rust – so you can confidently place your racks outside if you need to. We also offer the arms and bases in a hot-dipped galvanised finish, making them rust-proof as well.
