We have full product specifications on which Meco Cantilever System is right for your application. Please review the following series to determine which is best for your project:

Uprights are punched on both sides for versatility and can be used single sided or double sided depending on the size of base used. Note that arms must never be placed on the back side of a single-based upright. MECO OMAHA CANTILEVER RACKS are modular within each basic capacity series so that additional arms, uprights and cross braces may be ordered at any time to add to your existing system. Different sized arms may be interchanged on racks to further tailor your racks to different uses. Standard and Heavy Duty arms (page 24) are designed for use on Series 3000, Series 4000 and Series 5000 uprights only. Series 1000 and Series 2000 components are not interchangeable with any other rack series.

Single sided uprights can be converted to doubles when used with longer bases designed to accommodate placement of arms on both sides. Upright capacities can be computed by multiplying the number of arms per upright by the individual arm capacities—NOT TO EXCEED TOTAL UPRIGHT CAPACITIES LISTED. Arm capacity is based on EVEN DISTRIBUTION OF LOAD. All racks are designed for quick assembly and come with complete instructions and hardware for installation. Completely adjustable MECO OMAHA CANTILEVER RACKS eliminate storage problems. Heavy duty steel construction permits storage of tubes, bars, structurals and other long heavy items that must be kept off the floor. Bases can be used for extra storage.

Forklift easily loads off and on arms and bases. Fast, convenient handling of heavy, long unwieldy stock. Instant accessibility to one piece or a full load. For longer materials, simply add braces and uprights to fit your requirements. Specially designed MECO OMAHA CANTILEVER RACK systems may be required to meet your needs. MECO OMAHA representatives will work with you to develop the most feasible and economical rack system for your special situation. Special label requirements can be met at a additional cost.

High quality MECO OMAHA Series 1000 Cantilever Rack is designed for use where heavier capacities are not required. This rack is similar to our popular heavier duty racks except for the use of lighter gauge steel and smaller dimensions of component parts. Available in 6′, 7′, 8′, 10′ and 12′ single and double sided uprights with a choice of eight standard brace lengths (measured on center) to accommodate 12″, 18″, 24″, 30″, 36″, 42″ and 48″ straight or inclined arms. Arms are completely adjustable on 3″ centers up and down the full length of the uprights. Two or more uprights can be assembled into a continuous system. This sturdy and stable rack is as convenient and versatile as the heavier duty racks but priced lower to reflect the reduced capacity. Installation is quick and easy. Racks can be tailored to your individual requirements. Uprights facilitate manual loading and unloading. Open base design affords easy forklift accessibility. Ideal for storing bar stock, pipe, tubing, lumber and many lightweight or hard-to-stock items that must be kept off the floo

Straight Arm

Straight arms up to 48″ long have minimum pitch of 3/8″ per foot to compensate for deflection. 54″ and 60″ arms have a minimum pitch of 5/8″ per foot.

Inclined Arm


Uprights consist of a vertical column and a horizontal base which is bolted to the column. A minimum of two uprights must be ordered to form a storage bay. Each edge of the column is punched vertically on 3″ centers so it may be used as a single or double sided upright depending on the size of base used. NOTE: The arms must never be placed on the back side of a single sided upright and base. Standard upright and base color is gray.
