Store Coils Safely With Coil Racks From Tier-Rack

CoilRack1

Are you a manufacturer whose raw materials come in the form of steel coils? Coils you can't stack on top of each other without causing damage without some kind of racking? A Tier-Rack® coil rack protects your coils from creasing and flattening, while permitting the coils to be stacked up to 4 racks high. Without a doubt Tier-Rack makes heavy duty coil storage rack. Our steel coil storage systems opens up a large amount of valuable floor space for other uses.

A portable coil rack also provide security for the coils during coil handling in your operation. It is often faster and easier for a forklift truck to pick up a loaded rack than a loose coil. In some applications these coil cradles are also used as a cradle rack to stage the coils in the production area, and the product in the steel rack can be fed directly into the production process from the coil cradle.Let us show you how our years of manufacturing experience can provide you with quality steel coil racks at a very affordable price. 

We buy steel tubing directly from the tube mills in truckload quantities for our coil storage racks and storage bins. 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 that nobody does it better than Tier-Rack! Whether you need 100,000 steel coil rack or 10 steel coil racks, Tier-Rack is your best choice for stacking coils!

Used Tire Racks That Work Like New

LacingTires

As a product, one would think that a tire should be easy to store.  You buy them, you stick them in a warehouse, and you sell them.  Easy as pie.  However, the way that tires are stored has a HUGE effect on their appearance, durability, and value.  There are several different styles of decking that store the tires in different ways.  You can choose between perforated decking, wire decking, and no decking.  You can also choose USed Tire Racks for your shop that work like new!

Perforated decking has a solid hole to decking ratio.  This ratio of holes to solid deck will give solid support to the tires and will leave racked tires unmarked in the rack.  These also are fire codeapproved, as they allow water to sluice through the decking, allowing fires below and around the racks to be extinguished.  Wire mesh decking is less expensive than perforated decking, and leaves larger openings in the decking.  If you don't plan on keeping stock on hand for long periods, this is a great option, as you want for the tires to have little time for the wire to leave marks on the tires.  The least expensive way to store your tires is with no decking at all.  Tier-Rack Corp engineers can design your racks with the inner and outer rack beams aligned to hold your particular tire, however, this works best when people will not be standing on the racks as they load or unload: the beams are not designed to support people securely.

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. 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 that nobody does it better than Tier-Rack! Whether you need 100,000 tire racks or 10 tire racks, Tier-Rack is your best choice.

Used Industrial Racks Are Your Solution

Drumstorage2

Used items get a bad rap, and for a good reason.  Some things you don't want to buy used at all, including food, underwear, and toothbrushes. However, sometimes, buying a product used can give you an advantage, and that's where Used Tire Racks come in.  Tire racks, while infinitely customizable, can be used by different businesses repeatedly, as many businesses sell the same type or size of tires.  This is where Tier-Rack can step in and make it easier for businesses to save money on their tire storage needs.

Tier-Rack helps find used racks that can fit the customer, and delivers them into the hands that need them.  We operate as a re-seller for racks that otherwise may be impossible to find, as we scour the country looking for the best deals on the widest variety of used tire racks.  Finding these aren't easy, but our staff of sales professionals can find you the used tire rack that you need.

As such, we also BUY used racks.  Many companies, when changing product or moving to larger/smaller facilities, will change and adapt their rack space accordingly.  We are there to help facilitate this process with you, to let you move on from your used tire racks and help you find a new home for them.  This allows us to have racks for our customers, and help keep everyone who wants to buy OR sell used tire racks happy.  

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.

Use a Bin to Store Your Warehouse Goods

FoldingBin1

If your warehouse stores lots of different types of materials, including bulk items, grains, small assorted items or anything like that, you know that storing them can be a real issue.  Finding a way to keep all of your items stored, secured, and separate are among the major headaches that warehouse managers have to suffer through.

Once you’ve determined your needs, you can find a solution with Tier-Rack.  We have both bins and bags that will keep your warehouse organized and operating at a peak level.  Our bins and bags are very portable, and will let you store every type of material that you need.

This helps increase storage density and efficiency, and lets you separate your items to where you save time searching for things in the warehouse.

Bins are also great for shipping.  Our shipping bins let you remove the headache from shipping small boxes of material, especially from your own warehouses to each other.  Never pack a new box when you already have a bin packed.  Ship in your Tier-Rack bin – they’re durable enough to be handled with a forklift and stand up to the rigors of travel.

Our bags are terrific for storing anything small that needs to be ported.  They’re ideal to use in a warehouse sorting grains or small tools, or anything that pours (and makes a mess when it spills!)  We sell bulk bag racks that keep these bags upright and make them extremely portable and safe to use.

Tier-Rack isn’t just the top storage rack company in the United States, they also make other products that help keep your warehouse safe and efficient year-round.  Call us today at 800-325-7869 and visit www.tier-rack.com for more information.  Don’t let your warehouse become a mess this year.  Let Tier-Rack organize it and save thousands, while getting certified U.S. Steel, made right here in the United States.

A Warehouse Of Tire Racks Can Save Your Business

PassengerTire 1 Big

Running a warehouse is a complicated job.  Beyond the job of organizing schedules and keeping people on task, keeping the warehouse's stock accessible and safe is the main task.  Finding a balance between rotating old stock forward, keeping aisles clear, and ensuring that the stock is stored in a way that the items don't become damaged is very important.

This balance is especially important in warehouses that store tires, such as tire shops, big box stores, auto repair shops, and any business that repairs their own vehicles.  These warehouses need to have their stock accessible, as their customers need to have their vehicles fixed, and moving the customers in and out quickly can make all of the difference in staying open and going out of business.  Tires also have to be stored correctly physically to keep them from warping, which can lead to blowouts and lawsuits.

Save Space With Used Nesting Racks

QuakerLN4Nested

A Used Nesting Rack, when placed in your warehouse, saves space for you.  It's a rack that works as both a Movable Rack and a nestable one - it helps out in bulk storage and is often used for bulk bag storage in warehouses.  If you need to store assets in this way, the Nesting Rack is the way to go.

Sometimes these racks are called a nestainer, jarke cupl-up, nestrack, nesting bin, nestable pallet, or nestable pallets. They can hold heavy loads (they are typically stacked in columns of 4 or 5 racks, with each rack holding 2,000 to 4,000 pounds). Empty racks and bins can be "nested" - one rack set inside another rack - up to 6 or 7 at a time. They are a storage system that saves time because the empty racks can be nested by one fork lift operator. A bundle of nested bins occupies less space than empty standard heavy duty pallet rack. The rear posts act as stops for your loads, so your fork lift operator does not have to guess how far into the nestable pallet the load should go. Many sizes and load capacities are available for Tier-Rack nesting racks.

If you are in the market for a nestable rack that can stack and save space while storing bulk items, the Nesting Rack is the product that will serve you best in your warehouse.  Don't spend another day precariously stacking other racks or leaving bulk bags sitting around your warehouse.  Get organized and save space with Nesting Racks from Tier-Rack.

How a Perforated Tire Rack Deck Makes Your Warehouse Safer

PassengerTire 1 Big

When businesses store tires, they need to know that they are safely stored, and that their WAREHOUSE will be safe.  Believe it or not, this is a very important question in storage.  When racks store items, such as tires, they need to be setup to allow water to sluice through, going from fire suppression systems all the way to the floor to put out fires in your storeroom.

Perforated deck 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.

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. 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 that nobody does it better than Tier-Rack! Whether you need 100,000 tire racks or 10 tire racks, Tier-Rack is your best choice.  Visit www.tier-rack.com today!

Sell Safer Tires With Tire Racks

WHeavyDutyTruckTires Racks

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.

Tire Racks make For Safer Warehouses

LacingTires

If you're reading this, you probably sell tires.  So you know that they are dificult to manage in a warehouse.  You're basically corralling something meant to travel, after all.  That's why a specialized tire rack is the only way to go when you are deciding on how to store your racks.  

Using a tire rack that is designed specifically for that purpose can eliminate a lot of the hazards that many tire sellers face.  They are built from the ground up with tires in mind, and will keep tires both safely stored and correctly held for maximum effectiveness.  Tire racks hold tires with perforated decking in place and hold the tires in a position that will keep the tires in good shape for the duration.  You'll be able to sell tires that are functional and safe, while keeping your warehouse workers safe from rolling tires.

When most companies decide on the layout of their tire racks for their warehouse, they take several factors into consideration.  Ease of use, maneuverability, and equipment cost are all important matters to consider.  However, the most important is safety.  Knowing that your rack is going to hold up to the stress of everyday use, holding products long-term, and safely distributing the product are paramount to having the safest warehouse for your tire products.

This is where Tier-Rack Corporation is your friend.  Their tire racks are built to last, with only the highest quality metals and welds, to ensure the maximum allowable safety.  They are built to specifications that a company can set their watch by, and as long as the specs are observed, the rack will continue to give the highest possible level of safety and stability for the warehouse.

They also are built for ease of accessibility.  This means that they are designed to hold tires, and if used for this purpose, will allow your warehouse staff to safely and quickly get the products down and onto your customers' cars.  This makes a huge bottom-line difference and can make the difference between profitability and loss for a business.  To find out how Tier-Rack can make your company's warehouse safer and more profitable, visit www.tier-rack.com and call 800-325-7869 to order!

Used Stack Racks Utilize Your Warehouse Space

Orangeracks4high

Shelves and shelf space, and the placement of shelves and containers ultimately affect the ability for you to utilize any space available.  The configuration and traffic patterns of your warehouse need to be optimized to ensure that your space is efficient.

This is where stackable racks from Tier-Rack can make your warehouse both more efficient and safer.  You can stack the racks together, and easily move them throughout your space, maximizing your space.

 After you get your stackable racks, here are some other ways to maximize your space:

Be methodical when stacking items such that they are always in the same order, in a way that compliments each other. Doing this creates an order that allows easy retrieval, encouraging employees to more easily find items and to find them using the same, repeatable process, which creates efficiency over time. And, you are less likely to lose items and less likely to have spoilage of items that have a shorter shelf life while optimizing space available, which will create more shelf space for inventory storage.

Keep the space clean in your warehouse such that it is free of any unneeded items. If you organize your building in a way that maximises the given area, you can greatly improve the flow and efficiency of movement. More areas can be used when items are set in an area specifically designated for those items. The position and arrangement of the items greatly affects the available space given to you. A metric that is often used to measure this efficiency is “inventory turns.” The greater the number, the more times you are replenishing your inventory and making greater efficiency of your inventory space.

Think carefully and highly value every space used for any warehouse storage needs. If an item isn’t really needed to be stored locally, remove it. Only using space you truly need significantly improves the number of items you can fit in any given building, increasing efficiency and avoiding unnecessary expansion. Doing this can also help lower the cost for the maintenance and security of the facility you maintain.

 Knowing your space and using it properly is the key to safe, efficient warehouse usage. Let us show you how our years of manufacturing experience can provide you with quality stack 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 that nobody does it better than Tier-Rack! Whether you need 100,000 racks or 10 racks, Tier-Rack is your best choice.

Your Warehouse Needs the Stack Rack You Ordered

Stacker1

When making a major purchase, you want to trust the supplier you buy from. If you buy a TV, you want to know you will get the Sony you paid for, not a box with a raccoon in it.  Creating this trust in business to business sales is a little different. Tier-Rack Corporation, for example, has created this trust in their Stack Rack system by being accountable for their products.

Tier-Rack sales people are the first people you talk to when you call to order, and the last people you speak to after you place your order.  For example, when you purchase a tire rack from Tier-Rack, the sales team takes your order, the in house engineering team designs your rack, the United States-based manufacturing warehouse fabricates the rack, and it's delivered to you.  Tier-Rack's sales team also follows with you every step - including helping to deal with inspectors and regulators if necessary.

However, not every company follows these guidelines.  There are horror stories about companies receiving 16 gauge racks instead of the 14 gauge that they have ordered.  How can you determine that you've gotten what you've paid for?  The only way to be sure, and this is with any rack company, is to weigh.  Ask your supplier what the weight should be on these racks, and weigh them when they arrive. 

Don't take delivery on racks that come in too light, as that means that the supplier has skimped on the metal, and delivered you an inferior product.  Many racks, particularly those manufactured outside of the US, suffer from lighter gauge tubing and inferior manufacturing, and will not hold up over the long run.  

Tier-Rack Corporation has been a leader in rack solutions and flexible warehouse racking systems for almost sixty years. The original Tier-RackR pallet stacking frame converts regular warehouse pallets into sturdy storage racks in seconds without screws or bolts. And the Load-NesterR 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 up 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.

Tire Racks In a Successful Warehouse

TirePassengerRack3

A tire retailer needs many things in his warehouse, but the most important product that they can purchase is a stacking tire rack.  Tier-Rack Corporation, of St. Louis, is the nation's number one provider of tire racks, including both stacking and retail-ready racks, in the nation.  They are also the inventors of the Stack Rack, the unique stackable storage solution that has made warehouse functions run smoothly since 1955.  This knowledge and experience makes Tier-Rack the choice for any warehouse needs, including tire racks.

Finding the right warehouse tire rack is just as important.  Some companies need permanent structures, large, imposing racks that stay in one place and hold their cargo for years.  Other companies require more portable racks, allowing for the warehouse to be configured in different ways and for different stock to cycle through according to season and volume.  Tier-Rack can accomodate both of these needs, giving companies the safety of knowing that they have bought just the right storage rack for their company, and that they are made in the USA of the highest quality materials.

If you give Tier-Rack Corporation a chance to bid on your storage solutions, they will find both the price point and quantity that your company needs to store tires in their warehouse effectively, and the support and help of Tier-Rack's sales, manufacturing and engineering teams at each step of the process.  Contact them today at www.tier-rack.com and call (800) 325-7869 to talk to a sales consultant today.

Not everything works as well after it's been used.  Gum comes to mind.  Also underwear.  However, sometimes, buying a product used can give you an advantage, and that's where Used Tire Racks come in.  Tire racks, while infinitely customizable, can be used by different businesses repeatedly, as many businesses sell the same type or size of tires.  This is where Tier-Rack can step in and make it easier for businesses to save money on their tire storage needs.

Tier-Rack helps find used racks that can fit the customer, and delivers them into the hands that need them.  We operate as a re-seller for racks that otherwise may be impossible to find, as we scour the country looking for the best deals on the widest variety of used tire racks.  Finding these aren't easy, but our staff of sales professionals can find you the used tire rack that you need.

As such, we also BUY used racks.  Many companies, when changing product or moving to larger/smaller facilities, will change and adapt their rack space accordingly.  We are there to help facilitate this process with you, to let you move on from your used tire racks and help you find a new home for them.  This allows us to have racks for our customers, and help keep everyone who wants to buy OR sell used tire racks happy.  

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.

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.

Summer Warehouse Tips From Tier-Rack

Orangeracks4high

Keep Your Warehouse Cool This Summer

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.
