Sheetrock, plasterboard and drywall panels have sensitive storage requirements that Dexco™ cantilever racks can fulfill. Our cantilever racks for drywall and sheetrock panels enable proper organization and provide uniform support to maintain product quality. Dexco™ racking provides solutions to the common challenges of storing drywall and plasterboard.
Manufacturers and distributors must store drywall panels on a uniform surface with risers between each panel to prevent sagging during long-term storage. Dexco™ cantilever racks provide a flat, stable area that evenly supports plasterboard when the user employs pallets or spacers. Made from structural I-beam steel, our standard cantilever racks can hold up to 20,000 pounds per arm, and support heavy pallets of multiple layers of stacked drywall.
Our cantilever racking also suits drywall storage that doesn’t involve pallets. We can develop a racking layout that spaces the cantilever arms in alternating patterns to meet best practices for drywall storage.
Drywall should not lie flat on a concrete floor because water can wick into the panels and cause damage. Dexco™ racks keep drywall panels off of the ground via multiple vertical tiers of storage. You can specify the number of levels needed for your system in accordance with your storage requirements and safety regulations. The increased vertical capacity of Dexco™ racking also helps the user free up floor space for additional storage or wider passageways.
Correct drywall stacking improves safety during handling, and protects material integrity by preventing panels from falling and sheets from sagging. We can develop cantilever racking with dimensions that maximize storage density while keeping stacks to the industry-recommended 10 panels or fewer. Our custom capabilities also include racks designed to accommodate your material handling equipment and make stacking more efficient.
In storage conditions that require specific racking dimensions and weight capacities, a custom Dexco™ system can optimize your site’s storage space. Our engineers can visit your facility, examine your materials and current conditions, and develop racking that improves your storage density and promotes drywall integrity. Custom capabilities for Dexco™ storage include:
