SEMA/FEM 10.2.09 The Design of Cantilever Racking (Revised March 2017)
This FEM Code specifies the structural design principles and requirements applicable to all types of cantilever rack systems fabricated from steel members intended for the storage of unit loads and subject to predominantly static loads. Components include columns, cantilever arms, bases, bracing and beams. Bracing systems are required in order to achieve a three dimensional & braced structure with aisles to enable industrial trucks to reach the storage positions. Although components are standardised, they are only standard to each manufacturer. Cantilever racking can be used for internal or external storage and this important publication includes calculations and design principles for this specialised form of racking.
