Tier-Rack Experts Can Redesign Your Warehouse

A new warehouse is exciting and frustrating.  You get all of this new space, sure, but how should it be laid out?  Is the building you can afford the one you require?  Will it have your amenities and space to grow?  The most important question though, is how to lay it out.  Here are a few factors to examine as you develop your warehouse layout.

Equipment Size: Will your production machinery need more space than you anticipate, between its footprint and the employees that use it?
Get LEAN: This is a great time to restructure your operation.  Talk to the employees on the floor.  Ask them what they would change, how they would lay things out.  They’re there every day, ask them what would make the process more streamlined.
Height: Make sure that you have some vertical space, but not too much.  Stack Racks make it easier to utilize this space, but too much and you’re heating and cooling space for no reason.
Aisles: Start with measuring the size of your lift trucks.  Then give them adequate space on each side to get through.  Sounds like common sense, but we’ve been asked to design racks for companies that didn’t plan ahead and couldn’t get their trucks through.
Department Matters: You’re banking on your business growing, so why not build out in a way that can help facilitate that?  Make sure that every department has the room it needs to grow.  Often, one part of the operation ends up shortchanged (usually receiving) and it hurts the entire operation.

This doesn’t take into account all of the EHS factors of course, but it’s a great way to start getting your warehouse organized.  Tier-Rack can help as well.  We have experience designing custom racks and helping companies utilize their space, both in the horizontal AND the vertical.  We can help your company whether you’re moving in or redesigning.  Call us today at 800-325-7869 or visit www.tier-rack.com for more information.  Don’t live with frustrating racks and unusable space any more.

How Should You Store Tires?

Many businesses need to store tires.  What some of them don't understand is HOW.  Tires, as a soft, malleable object, need to be stored in a way that they won't warp and deform, creating wobbly, dangerous tires that can cause blowouts and accidents.  Wobbly tires can mess up the alignment on a vehicle, and on an 18-wheeler, this is a huge problem costing thousands of dollars to fix.

Some companies have found themselves with unusable stock, simply because they have not stored their tires properly on a professional, custom built tire rack.  These tire racks are easily the safest way to safely store your tires, as they hold the tires on perforated decking that helps distribute the weight of the tire throughout, keeping it from warping. 

Our center post Tier-Rack® tire stacking frame is a popular alternative for those who appreciate the ease of loading and unloading tires when there are no obstructions on the corners of the stack racks. These tire racks are also the least expensive storage solution for tires  available. The frames easily attach to your existing warehouse pallets and will hold loads of 2,000 pounds per pallet when the racks are stacked five high.

Tier-Rack Corp of St. Louis, MO has been providing custom designed and manufactured tire racks since 1955.  Tier-Rack has created hundreds of customized racks for every shape and size of tire, using wire mesh and perforated decking to support the tires while keeping them from warping during long periods of non-use.  Let us show you how our years of manufacturing experience can provide you with quality earthmoving machine tire racks at a very affordable price.

Industrial Machinery Tires Need Great Storage

When Industrial Machinery needs to move, what moves it?  Tires.  And these tires need to be up to snuff, especially when we're talking about large scale equipment, bulldozers, harvesters, shredders, wheel loaders, amd cherry pickers all need ways to store their tires and treads.  These are heavy duty, requiring a little bit more support and metal than typical tires need. 

These racks require toughness that a typical rack doesn't need, giving them a heavier, sturdier feel than most tire racks.  Luckily Tier-Rack Corp has on site engineers specially trained to design these racks to stand up to the rigors that construction equipment tires put on them.  Whether its a construction company, a state office, or a supplier, Tier-Rack can develop a rack that suits your company and manufacture it in their local manufacturing plants here in the United States, using the highest quality parts and metal.

Since Tier-Rack is the designer, manufacturer, and seller of Tier-Rack stacking racks, they can assure you of the quality of their products.  This gives them a leg up in creating the perfect rack for any situation, particularly one in which precision is important, such as Industrial Machinery Tire Racks.

Since 1955, Tier-Rack Corp has used their Tier-Rack storage system to store tires, boxes, fabric, pipe, elecronics, bicycles, furniture, food, beverages, and almost any product that can be kept in a warehouse.  Any company that uses pallets can use this product, which stacks frames on top of your existing wood pallets to create vertical space.These will allow a company to stack 3 to 5 loads of crushable of fragile products, as well as awkward, non-stackable product. 

When the frames aren't being utilized, they take up a small amount of space, folding down to conserve your precious warehouse space.

Tier Your Tire Racks For Space

Tire businesses across the world have a space problem. There aren't a lot of ways to keep tires stored that do no damage and are space efficient.  Stacking tires isn't effective, as it creates soft spots and wear patterns, and causes the tires to become lopsided and wobbly.  This makes mounting the tires difficult, and even dangerous.  Tires worn in patterns or that are lopsided can blow while driving, an extremely dangerous proposition.

Tier-Rack has solved this.  Warehouses and other businesses that need to store tire racks vertically can use the Tier-Rack Stack Rack, or Tier Tire Racks.  These stackable racks allow companies to store tires vertically, creating "stacks" that safely and securely store tires.  These custom-designed racks allow for both safety and ease of access for storage of tires, creating a warehouse that employees can easily access their tires from.  This makes warehouses safer and more efficient, saving money and time, and protecting both your inventory and your employees.

Let us show you how our years of manufacturing experience can provide you with quality car tire racks at a very affordable price. We buy steel tubing directly from the tube mills in truckload quantities.

A Cool Warehouse Is a Profitable Warehouse

Normal 0 false false false EN-US JA X-NONE

FACTORYRACKING1

It’s a hot summer.  Nothing slows down production like a heat wave in your warehouse.  Think about it though – couldn’t your warehouse run more efficiently and quickly if the workers are comfortable?  As anyone who runs a warehouse can tell you, being uncomfortable leads to rushing leads to mistakes.  Here are a few ways to deal with warehouse heat and humidity to help make your warehouse run more efficiently through the summer.

What can you do

  1. Install high-volume A/C units.  Fastest and safest method to reduce heat and humidity.  May not be as effective if you have large bay doors that are open constantly, and doesn’t help outdoor workers.
  2. Some machinery is prone to overheating.  Make sure that if you have conveyor belts or other machinery that doesn’t perform well in the heat, try to keep it in the cooler parts of the building. 
  3. Know your employees and workforce.  Not everyone handles the heat as well as others.  If you have employees that have trouble with the heat, consider moving them to a cooler area or giving them frequent breaks.
  4. Watering stations can really help with cooldown.  Keep stations at regular intervals and assign employees and resources to keep them filled.  An employee with heatstroke is a serious matter.  Not just lost work time, but a human being hurt in your warehouse.  If you see signs of heatstroke, or your employees do, rectify that right away.  Tell your employees to watch for signs such as dizziness and loss of breath.
  5. Lock in the cool air. Vinyl strips can keep in as much as 60% of your cold air without disrupting the workflow of your warehouse.
  6. Industrial dehumidifiers are a huge comfort to employees. Taking the humidity down makes an immediate difference in the health and comfort of your workforce.

 

These are just some of the ways that you can make your warehouse more comfortable and effective.  Tier-Rack can help as well.  We have experience designing custom racks and helping companies utilize their space, both in the horizontal AND the vertical.  We can help your company whether you’re moving in or redesigning.  Call us today at 800-325-7869 or visit www.tier-rack.com for more information.  Don’t live with frustrating racks and unusable space any more.

Military Bases Know: Tier-Rack Keeps Their Trucks Moving

usmilitarytires

Military bases often have the biggest need for storage solutions, due to the extensive list of differently used equipment that a military base needs to utilize.  From heavy vehicles to motorcycles, just the tire storage needs of a military base can be a headache.  Tier-Rack Corporation knows the issues that you face in storing all of these different sized tires for the vehicles that need to be in fighting shape at all times.

Military equipment requires sturdy racking. Tier-Rack designs racks for heavy trucks, buses and OTR tires (farm tractors, mining machinery, etc). We have designed tire storage racks for the U.S. Air Force, Navy and other military entities.  Our racks allow for multiple tires to be moved at one time, thereby reducing handling time and  risks of injuries.  Tier-Rack military tire rack can also be used with full wheel assemblies provided that we are provided with accurate weights prior to manufacturing.

We can create a rack specially designed to hold your tires standing on tread or barrel stacked.  This tire storage system can be made to hold any size tires.  Tire capacity is determined by the length and configuration of the rack (quantity may vary with the size of the tires). The tire storage rack can also be equipped with ramps that can be used to roll a tire into the rack and can serve to hold the tires in place. 

The versatility of Tier-Rack, combined with the engineering ability and manufacturing power, creates a perfect solution for the problems of needing to provide storage for a multitude of different vehicle tire shapes and sizes, with our ability to design based on tread width, tire size, or any other potential wrinkle we need to work around. 

Our sales team is also a major advantage of our company.  We do not outsource the racks, we design, manufacture and sell these racks ourselves, giving us an ability to adapt to changing needs as very few companies can match.  Tier-Rack Corporation has been a leader in rack solutions and flexible warehouse racking systems for almost sixty years. The original Tier-Rack® pallet stacking frame converts regular warehouse pallets into sturdy storage racks in seconds without screws or bolts. And the Load-Nester® all-steel storage rack features light and heavy duty models of solid all-welded, knock-down, or nestable designs for all your material handling needs. Our portable stacking racks and rack systems are designed to handle and store even the most fragile, odd-shaped, and awkward merchandise. They can be designed to transport two loads at a time. Our stack racks reduce handling time, stack four to six high, and they are capable of supporting thousands of pounds per unit load. All Tier-Rack racks are engineered with a "2-to-1" safety factor to ensure the racks will perform safely and last for decades.  For more information, visit http://tier-rack.com today.

Tier-rack's Lessons on Rack Storage

Normal 0 false false false EN-US JA X-NONE

CantileverPicture5

Are you suffocating under your supply?  Is your warehouse a mess?  Do you feel like you’re just not organized, and it’s keeping your warehouse from being the efficient system that it should be?  You’re not alone.  Many companies are using outmoded storage systems that don’t give easy access to your products, or have flexible solutions to your particular warehouse space. 

Proper shelving will make your company more profitable, simply by maximizing your space. Who needs an expensive warehouse expansion, or a relocation to a new building? Using racks that are portable gives you more ways to utilize your available space. With more product on hand and a safe way to keep it organized, your operation can excel to new heights with the right shelving unit!

Here’s a quick look at some of the most popular types of industrial shelving to get you started.

Tier-Rack® portable racks are used by thousands of customers in hundreds of industries. Some of our customers use our portable stacking rack as standard warehouse racks, or as a stacking bin. In this case they place their product directly on our mobile rack and save the cost of wooden pallets.

The protection provided by the corner posts of the portable rack is a primary benefit. Bulky or hard-to-stack products are contained within the corner posts of the mobile storage racks. This provides stability for goods on the portable pallet when moving it within the warehouse or factory.

Others who use wood pallets and need to stack without causing product damage, find that our Tier-Rack® Pallet Stacking Frames fits their needs. The steel frame of the Tier-Rack® stacking rack clips onto the wood pallet, providing a secure “cage” that both allows the pallets to be safely stacked and protects the products within the rack enclosure.

Another use of portable storage racks is for handling work-in-process parts; a metal bin that holds several parts at one time, reducing plant traffic. They are custom racks designed to meet your needs, whether the parts to be handled are delicate or massive. Usually, these parts racks are designed as folding racks or collapsible racks.

Nestable racks are another type of portable stacking racks. These racks can be “nested”, or stacked inside of each other when empty, without removing the corner posts. Our Load-Nester® stacking racks nest when not in use, and carry and stack loads of 4,000 pounds per rack or more. This can be beneficial in an active warehouse where unused space is at a premium.

Whatever the application, whether it is for portable stack rack shipping racks, nesting racks, portable cart or warehouse storage racks – Tier-Rack has a portable stack rack that will do the job.  Tier-Rack Corporation has been a leader in rack solutions and flexible warehouse racking systems for almost sixty years. The original Tier-Rack® pallet stacking frame converts regular warehouse pallets into sturdy storage racks in seconds without screws or bolts. And the Load- Nester® all-steel storage rack features light and heavy duty models of solid all-welded, knock-down, or nestable designs for all your material handling needs. Our portable stacking racks and rack systems are designed to handle and store even the most fragile, odd-shaped, and awkward merchandise. They can be designed to transport two loads at a time. Our stack racks reduce handling time, stack four to six high, and they are capable of supporting thousands of pounds per unit load.

Tier-Rack Helps Ship Your Products

bumperafter

Every business ships SOMETHING, and every business knows the headaches this means.  Putting your product on a truck and pointing them toward the customer isn’t the way anymore.  You need to coordinate the trip, making sure that the items going will be safe, and secure for the trip, as well as easy to remove from the truck and move into the warehouse.  This can be a real pain if the truck or train isn’t packed properly and everything shifts in transit.
We have a solution.  The Tier-Rack Shipping Rack is designed from the ground up to deliver your goods to their destination in one piece, with a simple extraction method once they arrive.  You can even set the shipment up to leave the product on the shipping racks in the warehouse, letting your company utilize the racks for your storage needs going forward, or repurpose them to move more products!
We can design racks to span the width of a trailer often called Truck Decking, or racks to hold individual pallet loads sitting side by side like automotive racks.  Often these shipping racks or shipping containers are designed with sides that can fold down. This allows empty racks to be stacked more densely for lower freight costs on the return trip. This also prevents the rack posts from being misplaced in shipment. Whether your products are light and fragile or heavy and awkward to handle, we have the experience to help you move your parts safely.
Past applications include the following:
•    Transmissions
•    Hoods
•    Catalytic converters
•    Side panels
•    Glass
•    Palletized and boxed items
Let us show you how our years of manufacturing experience can provide you with quality shipping racks, truck decking and returnable racks at a very affordable price. We buy steel tubing directly from the tube mills in truckload quantities. Then our talented and efficient teams in our low overhead production facilities transform the steel tubing into high quality portable racks that have been designed to meet your needs. Give us a chance to prove to you than nobody does it better than Tier-Rack! Whether you need 100,000 racks or 10 racks, Tier-Rack is your best choice for stacking shipping racks, storage bins, utility racks, and shipping containers.

Tier-Rack Tire Racks Will keep Your Tires In Shape

rack2

With summer almost here, the last thing you're thinking about is winter tires.  Well, you've got them in storage, and nobody is buying them.  How can you keep your winter tire stock in shape while still having room in your warehouse for more stock?  Tier-Rack Tire Racks will keep your tires in shape.
Choose the style of tire rack that works best in your operation. Add perforated deck that meets fire codes by allowing water from overhead sprinklers to pass through to the stack racks below and protect the side walls. The ratio of holes to solid deck gives good support to the tires and will not leave marks on the tires in the portable rack.
Another style of stacking rack uses wire mesh decking. This decking is less expensive than perforated metal decking and has larger openings in the deck. This is a good option if your tires are in and out of your warehouse rack frequently and the wire deck doesn't have time to leave marks on your product. Naturally, the least expensive portable stack rack for tires has no decking at all. The inner and outer rack beams are located so they support the tires. This works best if you do not have people standing on the rack as they load or unload the tires, since the rack beams do not provide as secure a work surface as a deck does.
Our center post Tier-Rack® tire stacking frame is a popular alternative for those who appreciate the ease of loading and unloading tires when there are no obstructions on the corners of the stack racks. These tire racks are also the least expensive storage solution for tires available. The frames easily attach to your existing warehouse pallets and will hold loads of 2,000 pounds per pallet when the racks are stacked five high.
If you need shipping containers for tires, we make a folding rack for the economical return of the empty racks. Since the posts are not removed from the rack, there is no concern about losing some posts during the return trip. As with all of our varieties of tire racks, these can be made for any size and load capacity that you need. These shipping racks can be designed with or without decking to meet your needs.  They are strong enough to withstand years of use and material handling.  The tire and rack combination is what all tire distributors must have to store tires effectively
Let us show you how our years of manufacturing experience can provide you with quality tire racks at a very affordable price. We buy steel tubing directly from the tube mills in truckload quantities. Then our talented and efficient teams in our low overhead production facilities transform the steel tubing into high quality steel tire racks that have been designed to meet your needs.

auxfuel33

All styles of racking are engineered to meet and/or exceed the "2-to-1" safety factor established by the Rack Manufacturers Institute (RMI) for portable rack design specifications.

Individual racks can be moved by pallet jacks or forklifts. Each rack can be stacked on top of other racks to create a column of three to six racks, depending on the size of the rack and the weight of the load in the racks. Empty racks save space when the posts or side frames are removed from the bases. Our rack system can help with any storage problem that you may have.

Will You Store Tires On Horizontal or Vertical Racks?

LacingTires

Tires are an interesting product for storage.  On one hand, they will last during a lengthy storage if kept in optimal temperatures.  On the other hand, they can develop "flat spots" if time and care aren't taken to ensure that the tires are properly stored.  There is a bit of a debate as to whether tires should be stores vertically or horizontally.  Tires can be stacked side-by-side or aligned vertically, but will develop these flat spots either way unless they are stored on proper decking.

Vertical stacking is better for the life of the tires, as horizontal stacking wears on the sidewalls of the tires and causes them to wear excessively.  Vertical storage is easier on the tires, but can create a flat spot in the tire if left on a flat surface for too long.  Tier-Rack tire racks are designed to alleviate this issue.  Tier-Rack offers wire mesh decking and perforated decking, both of which leave holes that allow the tire to rest in a way that won't cause a flat spot on your tire, and the wire and holes are spaced out to avoid leaving marks on the tires.

If the tires are to be used quickly, horizontal tire stacking is perfectly acceptable, but can cause the "beads" to set too close together, making the tires difficult to mount and inflate.  Other tips for tire storage include storing them in a cool, dry place.  Your hot storeroom doesn't make a great place to store a malleable rubber product.  Try to keep them away from motors, generators, and furnaces, as these produce ozone that can age your tires.  Stack "white rubber" tires together to avoid staining.  And store the tires in a way that they won't collect moisture.  Unless you're into mildew.

Let us show you how our years of manufacturing experience can provide you with quality car tire racks at a very affordable price. We buy steel tubing directly from the tube mills in truckload quantities.
