How do I load and unload material from Steel Storage racks? 

We recommend using overhead cranes exclusively for loading and unloading material from SpaceSaver Roll-Out Cantilever Racks. Standard Roll-Out Sheet Rack Models complement overhead crane handling with a vacuum, lifter, or magnet attachment. Our forklift-loading Roll-Out Sheet Rack Models allow forklift access to load material from the backside and retrieve items via crane from the front.
