Cantilever System

A cantilever system is a structural design in which a horizontal beam (or other structural element) is supported at one end and projects outward without additional supports at the other end. The unsupported portion of the beam is known as the cantilever. Cantilever structures are commonly used in various engineering and architectural applications due to their unique design and advantages.

Key Points

  • Worktop supported by heavy-duty steel frame
  • Large range of mobile under-bench storage units
  • Moveable cupboards allow access for floor cleaning
  • Easy access to services


In this cantilever design the worktop is supported by a heavy-duty steel frame and the under-bench units are completely mobile on heavy-duty castors. Under-bench cupboard and drawer units can be placed anywhere along the length of the benching to provide the end user with flexibility. If the laboratory layout needs adjusting the under-bench units and can be easily relocated. Where there is a sink the cupboard under the bench will be fixed in position with ½ height backs for access to services.

A wide range of worktop materials and bench widths are available to suit individual clients requirements. Standard bench widths 750mm for wall benches and 1500mm for peninsular and island benches. Standards bench heights are 950mm standing and 750mm for sitting. This system can support 100kg per linear meter. Additional front support legs can be provided where heavier weights are applied.
