A Safe Warehouse Follows These Rules

boxes4high

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 it’s 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 customers 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 soound 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.

Get The Right Rack For Your Industrial Tires

Greentrucktirescopy

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.

Don't Get Fooled By the Wrong Warehouse Rack

Warehouserackswithwiredeck

Finding the right tire rack takes real research, and a real attention to detail.  While many companies can quote a tire rack, or build a tire rack, not all of them do it accurately or ethically in every phase.  Finding a company that sells, designs, builds, and delivers your racks is one way to guarantee accuracy in your order.  Start with a quote.  Finding a reputable company with a solid reputation in the industry.  Preferably, your target company will have an on-staff engineer, who will be able to accurately design the tire rack to properly support and store your tires for how your company uses them. 

They can also help to ensure that everything that you want is included in the quote.  Every specification, from metal gauge to load rating, needs to be spelled out in the quote.  A short list to help you would be: load ratings, stack heights, all tubing gauges, rack design details and empty rack weight.  Also, make sure to demand domestically manufactured racks. Often, companies will quote racks from overseas which use inferior tubing, and won't inform you of the 12 weeks of lead time that it takes due to sea container shipping, so that they can save on manufacturing costs. 

When the racks arrive, it is equally important that the work is checked. Just because a company tells you that their racks are 14 gauge doesn't mean that they are.  Demand in the quote to know what the estimated weight will be for each rack, and measure a sampling from the order upon arrival. Companies will skimp on the construction in areas that aren't seen, such as in the base which is welded closed.  These are hard to spot, but easy to measure if the estimates on weight are given.  It's also not unreasonable to check the physical address of the manufacturing facility to ensure that you know that these are made domestically.  If they come in a container, they are probably from China. 

Some of the most common pitfalls to avoid are:

          - Dealers or distributors posing as actual rack manufacturers
          - Inferior overseas material and workmanship
          - Quoting lighter gauge tubing
          - Quoting the correct gauges but then delivering lighter gauge
racks
          - Omitting rack tags indicating manufacturer and safe load limits

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.

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. 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 www.tier-rack.com or call 800-325-7869 for more information, or to order your racks.

Used Racks Store Products As Well

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

IMAG0072

When buying a storage rack, many factors come into play.  Building out your warehouse is a complicated process that has to be tailored for each space.  Your warehouse is different than any other, and needs a plan that works for you.

 When you’re determining your warehouse plan, you also have to think about cost.  That’s where Tier-Rack’s used racks can make all of the difference. 

 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 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.

A Hot Warehouse Is a Slow Warehouse

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.

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. Give us a chance to prove to you that nobody does it better than Tier-Rack! Whether you need 100,000 steel tire racks or 10 tire racks, Tier-Rack is your best choice for stackable tire racks.

Perforated Decks Save Your Stored Tires

LacingTires

Wire decking, or racks, serve a very important purpose in the safety of your storage space.  Racks, and all storage, need to work with your existing fire prevention systems in order to be safe.  What a perforated deck will do for your storage facilities is allow water to sluice through the rack in the event of a fire, allowing flames to be extinguished beneath the racks.  This essential safety feature makes the racks an active participant, not a hindrance, to the safety of your facility.  This also helps your tire rack to pass important fire safety codes and keep you operating.  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.

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.

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.

Let Warehouse Bins Keep You Organized

auxfuel33

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.

Learn About How Stack Racks Work

MaximizeSpaceinWarehouse

Everyone that has a warehouse knows that a storage rack can be the only barrier between order and chaos.  Having a professional rack, made for your item and industry, keeps your warehouse clean and organized.  They give you a place for everything.  Different industries need different racks, but every business that stores anything needs racks.

Stacking Racks are a great solution for many businesses.  What are a few reasons to choose stack racks?

•Store more product in less space

•Contain products in stack

•Eliminate use of wood pallets

•Allow bulk storage, no aisles needed

•Rearrange storage layout easily

•Unused racks collapse to save space

•Protect products during shipment

•Economical solution to many 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.

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.

Warehouse Racks Have Weight Limits. Obey Them!

CantileverPicture5

Overstacking a rack is dangerous. whether it's for tires, general goods, giant coils, grains, or whatever, there's a weight limit that your rack was built to specifications for.  This weight limit, however, isn't always easy for warehouse managers to convey to their employees, regarsless of how important it is to warehouse safety.  There may be a missing link in the chain of information, where the manager creates a sign which is covered by something else, or the lessons get lost in the shuffle of employee turnover.  However, this important lesson needs to be imparted at every level, as no company can afford for their inventory to crash to the floor.

Overstacking isn't the only problem though.  Racks can be weakened by collisions with forklifts, by improper stacking, by being in improper configurations or environments, or they may arrive in an unsatisfactory condition.  This last one, however, is one that Tier-Rack Corp can fix.  Every rack manufactured by Tier-Rack Corporation meets their highest safety and manufacturing specs, and are manufactured here, in the United States, of the finest metals and techniques at their manufacturing factories.
