Overview

Plastic and aluminum extrusions have highly specific storage requirements due to their heavy weight, long lengths and vulnerability to damage. Dexco™ storage racking, designed and manufactured by Ross, features wide-flange structural steel I-beams, making them ideal for industrial-grade materials like aluminum and plastic extrusions. Our cantilever racks can hold as much as 20,000 pounds per arm for secure extrusion storage, with our custom designs offering even higher weight capacities. Floor-mounted stanchion rack systems can also accommodate large quantities of extrusions. Numerous manufacturers and distributors in the plastics and metal industries use our industrial storage systems to overcome common issues with storing extrusions.

 

Industrial-Grade Weight Capacity

Manufacturers and distributors that work with high volumes of extrusions require storage capacities that often exceed standard racking weight or size limits. Typical commercial storage systems use roll-formed steel, reducing their ability to hold industrial extrusions as effectively as systems like Dexco™ racking that utilize structural-grade materials in their construction. Dexco™ plastic and aluminum extrusion storage racks accommodate up to 20,000 pounds per cantilever arm or very large quantities per specialty rack bay. Custom Dexco™ racks can hold even higher capacities, and are well suited for businesses that work with exceptionally large volumes of extrusions.

 

Cantilever and Stanchion Racking Available

The wide range of extrusion shapes and materials in manufacturing and distribution results in varying practices for extrusion storage. As a result, businesses that work with extrusions need racking configurations to accommodate products with different storage requirements. Our cantilever racks for plastic and aluminum extrusions use vertically adjustable arms to hold items of varying widths, lengths and shapes. In applications that require extrusion storage on the ground, our stanchion racking systems enable vertical stacking. Stanchion racks also suit round profile materials and other items susceptible to rolling.

 

Configurations That Enable Easier Stacking

Proper extrusion stacking reduces the risk of damage from impact, and Dexco™ racks are designed to accommodate your handling devices and facilitate more efficient stacking practices. The open-faced design of Dexco™ cantilever racking enables easier access from material handling equipment like sideloader forklifts and pedestrian stackers. Ross engineers can also custom-design a stanchion or cantilever rack based on your specific handling equipment specifications to enable more efficient operations than may normally be possible with standard rack systems.

 

Ability to Hold Different Extrusion Shapes and Lengths

Dexco™ racking can accommodate extrusions of different profiles and sizes in the same bay for flexible organization and efficient use of storage space. The open vertical layout of cantilever racking and the open tops and ends of stanchion racking enable storage of different products in the same system. Our engineers can also modify features such as cantilever arm angle to ensure secure retention of difficult-to-store materials like round tubes and bars.

 

Adaptability and Modularity to Meet Changing Demands

By using Dexco™ extrusion racking from Ross, you can adapt your storage layout to changes in inventory volume and product size. Every Dexco™ racking system has adjustable features to facilitate changes in layout. Users can change cantilever rack arm positions to accommodate different extrusion sizes and shapes. With stanchion racks that have modular bays, facility owners can add more racking as their storage needs increase.
