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.

Used Tire Racks Help Store Your Tires

Used Tire Racks

Whether you call them tier racks, stacking racks, pallet frames, portable stack rack, tire racks, diamond tops, nestable racks or stackers, Tier-Rack has a portable storage solution to fit your requirements.  Used Tire Racks help store your tires.

We have served thousands of companies in the tire, automotive, retail, agricultural, construction and building materials, textile, and food industries for over 50 years providing many types and sizes of portable stack racks.

Used Carpet Pad RackTier-Rack specializes in both the purchase and sale of used rack including used tire rack, pallet stacking frames, stack rack, used pallet racking, used warehouse rack, stacking bins, nestainer style racks and other material handling equipment throughout the U.S., Mexico and Canada. These items include our own Tier-Rack® frames, Load-Nester®, as well as brands from other rack manufacturers like Jarke, Steel King and others. Please enjoy browsing our online selection of used items for sale. If you have used material handling equipment you would like to sell, let us know and we can pay you cash for your used inventory!

However you store your tires, flat, on tread or laced, Tier-Rack can provide tire rack storage that won’t break your budget. Tire Racks were our original product, and the tire industry continues to be one of our important markets. While the 60” x 60” rack is still the most popular size, we also make many other sizes to meet your specific tire stacking rack needs.

Here are some of the different types of tire racks Tier-Rack can produce for you.

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.Used Tire Racks

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 LacingTiresempty racks. Since the posts are not removed from the rack, there is no concern about losing some posts during the return trip.

Is This the Used Stack Rack That I Bought?

Buying a Used Stack Rack can be a leap of faith.  You're buying a product on faith that it will function properly and that you will get the product that you ordered.  When you get the wrong color shirt from Amazon, you send it back.  If you get the wrong Used Stack Rack from some overseas company, you may be out of luck if they are non-responsive.  If you ask yourself "Is this the used stack rack that I bought?" then you probably didn't buy it from Tier-Rack, the most trusted name in Used Stack Racks.

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 used tire rack from Tier-Rack, the sales team takes your order 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.

Move your Warehouse Operation into Spring

With Spring around the corner, it's time to take a look at your warehouse and make sure that you are set up properly for the future of your business.  With warmer weather, you can move out the Winter products and get your Spring and Summer items towards the front, if you have a mobile warehouse.  What I mean by a mobile warehouse is a building with portable racks that can be combined into different configurations and moved around your warehouse to fit your needs.  Tier-Rack Stack Racks are the best way to move your warehouse operation into Spring and keep it fresh and productive.

Tier-Rack Stack Racks are a system of stackable racks that can be used to completely reorganize your warehouse, ship your products more efficiently, rotate your items quickly, and take advantage of the height of your space, not just the floor's area.

Reorganize Your Warehouse

Tier-Rack Stack Racks can be moved through the warehouse and fit into nearly any configuration that you can imagine, stacked five high, cubed out in a truck, or spread out however you want.  They can be moved with a forklift with your products safely aboard, to speed up the process.

Ship Your Products More Efficiently

You can use Tier-Rack Stack Racks to move your products from spot to spot in your warehouse, but why stop there?  Instead of loading and unloading the products, load them in the truck on the Stack Racks, getting your products in and out faster and letting your warehouse staff concentrate on getting your items in the hands of the customers.

Rotate Your Items Quickly

When the weather changes, so do buying habits.  Wouldn't you love to be able to put your current most popular products up front right away instead of spending a whole day taking things off of shelves and moving them to different shelves?  Just move the whole rack!

Take Advantage Of The Height Of Your Space

Tier-Rack Stack Racks stack 5 high, letting you store products higher and safer than ever before.  You can use every square inch of space you have, instead of looking at that area above your racks and wishing you had something stored there.

Let Tier-Rack show you how to move your warehouse into the future and set you up for success.  Call us today at 1-800-325-7869 or visit www.tier-rack.com today to learn more.

American Made Stack Racks For Your Company's Safety

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 the 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 for more information.

Since 1955, Tier-Rack Corp has used their Tier-Rack storage system to store tires, boxes, fabric, pipe, electronics, 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.

Companies Need Used Shipping Racks

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 on 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 Warehouse Racks Make Sense

 

Used Warehouse Racks

Buying warehouse racks doesn't have to be a difficult process.  If you are a warehouse manager, you need to find a balance between price and product and get the highest quality item possible for the money you are spending.  That is where used warehouse racks make sense.  If you want to save money and get a high-quality rack, you can trust used warehouse racks from Tier-Rack.

Used warehouse racks are exactly what they say.  They have been in a warehouse and done their job.  We inspect every rack to ensure that the quality is to our high standards before we sell them to you.  Warehouse racks can be expensive and are even more so if you are constantly replacing them.  If you are getting a guaranteed, used rack that has been inspected by Tier-Rack's professionals, you know you are getting a rack that will last for a great price.

Warehouse racks alone are tough to manage.  Every company has different needs, and even then, the needs can change to show the development of the business and industry.  One year, you may need to have your warehouse ready to deliver your product right away.  The next year, your product may be storing more product for a longer haul, without the need to move the product so quickly and find a way to keep your product long-term, or maybe you need to rotate your product often but keep it in storage.  Whatever the need, you can buy used warehouse racks that will help you keep up with the changes in your industry and company.

Tier-Rack has been a leader in the storage rack and warehouse industry since 1955.  Let our experts help you find the best used warehouse rack or design the perfect new warehouse rack for your business to help your business grow.

Carpet Pad Racks For Your Storeroom

Carpet pad occupies a lot of space when floor stacked on pallets. At the most you can stack the rolls into an unstable pyramid. A Tier-Rack®  pad rack allows the pad rolls to be stacked in a dense bundle. The uprights on a modular rack hold your pad rolls in place without using shrink wrap. This allows you to store about three times as many rolls per pallet position. Stack the pad storage racks 3 to 4 bins high giving the appearance of standard pallet shelving This opens up a large amount of valuable floor space for other uses.

The portable foam racks also provide security for each pad roll as the roll storage rack is being moved about your location. It is often faster and easier for a forklift truck to pick up a loaded foam rack than a pallet of loose pad rolls. The rolls are also held securely as the rack is moved, which means you are less likely to have a pad roll fall off the load. In some applications the roll storage racks can be waiting at the receiving dock for a truckload of loose pad rolls, loaded with carpet pad rolls and moved into the warehouse to be stacked. Customers have reported that they can reduce the time needed to unload a 53’ trailer by 75% using our roll racks.

If You Roll Product Suspended Roll Racks Will Store Them

 

Suspended roll racks: Do you manufacture or distribute product in rolled form? Rolls that you cannot stack on each other without risking damage? Plastic film, fabric, rolls of vinyl and non wovens can occupy excessive floor space. Use your warehouse air space!!

 

Tier-Rack® suspended roll rack is an excellent fabric rack that allows the rolls to be protected from creasing and flattening within the rack, while permitting the rolls to be stacked to the ceiling in your warehouse. Standard pallet racking does not solve this problem.Fabric racks do solve this problem!

 

– Use these sturdy stacking racks to protect sensitive rolls from damage. Since the roll is suspended on a core beam, the material never touches the rack. You can access the rolls with a fork lift or hoist. Instead of taking up all of your valuable floor space with individual rolls, put them into roll racks and stack the racks 3 to 5 high. A suspended roll storage rack is the best way to store rolls of vinyl or a paper roll or a packaging roll. These racks can be designed as a label rack to hold rolls of labels, or as paper storage rack or paper roll rack for paper roll storage. Portable suspended roll racks are also ideal for storing and shipping plastic film. 

Our heavy duty custom racks are designed to give years of service. Whatever you need to store or ship, whether the product is light or heavy, bulky or fragile, we can provide an affordable solution.

 

The stacking racks also provide security for the rolls as they are being moved in your operation. It is often faster and easier for a forklift truck to pick up a loaded roll rack than a loose roll. In some applications this industrial shelving is also used as a heavy duty stacker to stage the rolls in your production area from which product can be fed directly into the production process from the stackable rack.

 

Do your rolls need to get to your customer undamaged? Why build crates that have to be dissasembled and disposed of by your customer never to be used again? Use the roll rack as a returnable shipping container. We can design a custom rack that contains your rolls and fits within your trucks.

Let Tier-Rack Tire Racks Store Your Tires

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.

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.
