Tier-Rack Corporation has been a leader in rack solutions and flexible warehouse racking systems for fifty 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.

Storage Racks - Buy Quality Racks

When you are purchasing storage racks, one of the main considerations is the durability and longevity of the product.  You don't want to purchase a rack and have it fold on you in less than a year, or have the welds break on you in transit.  While it's impossible to have 100% durability, when you make racks with superior metals and techniques, they will last longer and perform better for you.  That's why Tier-Rack is the top choice for storage racks for any business.  Tier-Rack provides storage racks for the long haul.

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.

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.

Bulk Bags and Bins For Your Warehouse

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.

Bins are also great for shipping.  Our shipping bins let you remove a 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.

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!

For more information on Tire Racks and other Stacking Racks, visit www.tier-rack.com today, and call 1-800-325-7869 to speak to our sales team!

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.

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.

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
