The Shipping Solution? Used Shipping Racks

Used shipping racks are the lifeblood of the trucking industry.  Companies need used shipping racks.  They are what let companies move their products across the country safely and quickly and they help keep your products safe and sound through the process of getting them from your warehouse into the hands of your customers.  Used shipping racks make shipping affordable and convenient.  The best part about them is that they also double as warehouse racks, so you can ship your products on the same rack that protects and holds them in your warehouse.

Finding a reliable used shipping rack can be tough though.  You need to buy them through a reputable company, or you can risk putting your products on a faulty base, exposing them to the damage that you would if you sent them without a rack.  A faulty used shipping rack can collapse on you at the wrong time, and dump your products all through the truck or train car you're transporting them in, or the rack itself can crumple and crush your products.

That's why Tier-Rack inspects used racks for quality to make sure that you are getting the used shipping rack that you paid for every time.  Your products will be safe throughout the shipping process, and save money by not having to pack and repack, or replace broken merchandise.  Our shipping racks also allow you to "cube out" your container, giving you the maximum return for your investment and getting your product where it needs to be on-time and intact.

Tier-Rack has been the leader in the storage rack industry since 1955.  We sell used shipping racks as well as warehouse racks to fit every budget and industry, and will save your company money while providing the highest-quality rack available.  Call us at 800-325-7869 or visit www.tier-rack.com today to order.

Used Stack Racks Make Your Warehouse Work

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.

Used Tire Racks Help Improve Your Warehouse

Many companies store tires.  Whether they are manufacturers, retailers, repair shops, or businesses that need to replace tires often, like bus companies or taxi services, they need a way to store multiple tires safely, and many times, to ship them effectively as well.  Finding a way to store these tires is a constant battle between storing as much as possible, being able to easily access these tires, and being able to organize your warehouse.  Luckily, Tier-Rack Corporation has a way around this.

The Tier-Rack Stacking Rack, invented by Tier-Rack in 1955, is the industry leader in creating vertical, portable space in your warehouse.  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 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. 

With Tire Racks, this is very important.  Tires must be stored so that there is not an excessive amount of pressure on the tire, which can cause warping and soft spots, damaging the live expectancy of the tire.  These can lead to blowouts and dangerous conditions, and angry customers as well!

Used Truck Tire Racks

Storing truck tires can be a hassle, as they are generally sized differently than the more commonly available passenger tire racks.  Tier-Rack Corporation has been the leading manufacturer of Truck Tire Racks since 1955, the year they invented the stackable frames for tire storage.  They are the original source for truck tire storage racks, and have made it possible for thousands of customers to eliminate their material storage handling issues.  

Tier-Rack has many different varieties of truck tire racks to choose from, giving customers choices about how they store their tires.  However, unlike many Truck Tire Rack distributors, Tier-Rack Corporation actually manufactures their own products.  Tier-Rack also has engineers on staff to help design the tire rack that you need for your material storage use.  Many customers like to use wire mesh decks, for example, as their fire codes require water from overhead sprinklers to pass through grating to the floor below.  The ratio of holes to solid deck that our team designed gives solid support to the tires while leaving no marks on the tire.  The highly trained, on-staff engineering team creates custom racks that are then built on-site at Tier-Rack's manufacturing centers.

Safe Storage Practices For Stack Racks

We here at Tier-Rack Corp believe in a few things.  American-made products, quality materials, and the value of giving customers what they pay for come to mind.  But the most important thing we believe in is safety.  Tier-Rack has some rules that we like to send to customers to follow, in order to create a safer, more harmonious work environment.  Finding the balance between safety and productivity is difficult, and we feel that these rules will help your company properly use storage racks for any product, including tire racks, in a safe and secure manner.

*Do not carry more than one rack at a time. The racks are manufactured for static loads, not lateral loads.

 *Always read the label on the rack for its weight capacity and stack height.

 *Do not overload racks. Tier-Rack stack racks are engineered to withstand twice the capacity rate just in case this happens.

 *Do not use racks with damaged posts or bases. This (as with any type of racking) will greatly reduce the safety of the racking. We suggest if posts or bases are damaged, to call us and we will make replacements for your racks. Then please recycle the damaged material as soon as possible, so no one will grab and use them.

 *Do not stack any higher than is stated on the label. Each rack is engineered specifically for each customer's maximum weight capacity. If they are stacked higher than they were engineered for, it could cause safety problems for employees.

 *Tier-Rack engineers each rack to store product(s) to a given specification that is printed on the label. These calculations assume the weight on the rack is evenly distributed across the rack. Basically, don’t store anything heavy on one side and lightweight on the other. I know it is common sense, but it is good to share this information with the fork truck drivers and employees that may load the racks with product.

 *Do not fabricate (drill holes, grind, cut) the posts or bases of the racks without contacting Tier-Rack first. This can cause safety concerns down the road. We can have our engineers on staff calculate if these practices will affect the integrity of the steel and it’s performance short term and long term.

 *If you lose a label for the rack, just give us a call and we can send you replacement labels for you. Our labels are heavy duty and last for years, but sometimes they are damaged and knocked off. This is important because it tells your workers the specifications for the rack. If the label is missing it should be replaced immediately.

 *Please call Tier-Rack if you are going to ever use the racks for shipment in your trucks or trailers. We can determine if they can safely be stacked, or they may not be stacked while shipping.

We feel that following these rules will help keep your employees safe and sound in their interactions with our racks and will give your company a safer work environment.  Feel free to print this list for your workplace to let your employees know the guidelines for rack safety, so that they can be as safe as possible and keep your company moving forward into the future.  Visit www.tier-rack.com today

Production Racks From Tier-Rack

Manufacturers are always looking for ways to lower the cost of running their operation. Many have found that theTier-Rack® portable production rack contributes to a more efficient and safer workplace.

One use for these stack racks in the manufacturing operation involves loading incoming raw materials directly on to the Tier-Rack® base unit. The portable racks then can be moved with a forklift truck and either placed in the material storage area or carried directly to the production line. Completed products can be placed on the fabrication rack and carried to the finished goods warehouse or directly to the shipping dock.

If either the raw materials that you use in your production process or your finished products are hard to stack, you will find that you can get much more product stored in the same area using our stacking assembly rack to store full loads in a vertical stack. This is particularly helpful with irregularly shaped items that will not stack on top of each other, or items that would be damaged if another unit was placed on top of it.

If you have products of varying dimensions, or if you have the need to store partial loads of products, stacking manufacturing racks can provide a denser storage solution. Just as we can provide racks of many different sizes, we can also provide posts of different heights. So if your standard product is 48” high, but you sometimes have partial loads that are 24” high, we can supply you with some posts that are tall enough for the 24” loads. This will reduce the chance that you will have a lot of partially filled production racks in your storage areas.

Tier-Rack stacking manufacturing racks also can provide containment for items that would otherwise roll off of a pallet. The support posts can be designed to capture items like rolls of fabric or lengths of pipe, again increasing the density of the storage footprint. These containment racks also allow you to move larger quantities of these items through the plant at one time, which can reduce the labor costs associated with product flow.

Many customers use our stackable production rack in place of a wood pallet. This is because the portable racks can support product just as a pallet does, and also stack on top of each other while keeping the product secure and free from damage. Depending on the products you will store in the stack racks, we can supply racks with plywood, metal, expanded metal and wire mesh decks. Call our experienced sales staff to review the advantages or limitations of each deck type for your application.

Let us show you how our years of manufacturing experience can provide you with quality production 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 assembly racks or storage systems 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 for stacking production racks.

Best Practices To Store Tires Safely

The Tire Industry Association’s Environmental Advisory Council (EAC) has issued best management practices guidelines for proper tire storage.

The document outlines the steps tire dealers must take in storing tires to maximize the service life of their inventory, TIA said.

“If tires are not stored correctly, it may result in the loss of performance as prolonged exposure to outside forces like heat, direct sunlight and ozone can affect the integrity of the materials,” TIA said.

The document includes guidelines for outdoor and long-term storage of vehicles, TIA said.

This is the seventh best management practices compilation TIA has drafted, covering handling, transporting, recycling and/or disposing of materials important to tire dealers, including tires, used oil, fluids, degreasers and batteries. All available for free download at www.tireindustry.org.

If you need shipping containers for tires, Tier-RackR Corporation manufactures a folding rack for the economical return of the 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 90% of tire distributors use to store tires effectively.

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.
