Dexion introduces a new heavy duty cantilever specifically designed to support extra heavy, long and cumbersome items in storage.

The Clearspan heavy duty cantilever from leading storage and materials handling specialist Dexion enables fast and direct retrieval of stored products, and is designed to accommodate items that cannot be palletised. The absence of front uprights allows unimpeded access while a hot dip galvanised option makes it ideal for outdoor applications. 

Dexion’s Clearspan heavy duty cantilever can be used by aluminium fabricators, steel and timber merchants, plumbing and hardware suppliers, furniture wholesalers and garden suppliers. 

Designed and tested in accordance with strict industry codes and standards, Dexion’s Clearspan heavy duty cantilever offers a unique and comprehensive storage solution for heavy duty items. 

The dual fixing arrangement that has the cantilever equipped with columns bolted to both sides of single or double entry bases and directly anchored to the concrete floor via a heavy duty baseplate and heavy duty stud anchors, provides maximum base fixity, which minimises the rotation and overall deflection of the column and also provides greater resistance to fork truck impact. 

Unique features of the Dexion Clearspan cantilevers also include a rectangular hollow section for the arms to provide additional torsional stability resulting in a more robust product; a pivoting arm design that allows the arm to shift upwards if impact occurs during loading and unloading, preventing structural damage to the system; an optional removable spigot, which acts as a retaining stop for storage of loose items such as a conduit or pipe; arm locking pins that are used to restrain the arm on the column; Turnbuckle bracing for lateral stability; and flexible loading using a side loader or conventional handling equipment.

Dexion also provides professional engineering services to design to unique loading regimes including specific seismic and wind load conditions. The cantilever can be supplied with a range of accessories including deck support brackets to store awkward bulky items such as furniture or white goods; or tube support channels for long materials such as extrusions that bend or sag.
