Aircraft Tire Racks - How Can They Be Safer?

Aircraft tire storage can be a real problem. As these tires go from 44" to 56' or even larger, they are heavy and dangerous to move. If their storage racks are poorly designed, they can be difficult, and even dangerous to remove from the rack as their weight and shape make them unwieldy. An experienced company such as Tier-Rack recognizes this and has designed a solution.

2deckemptyTier-Rack manufactures tire racks and equipment designed for military, aerospace manufacturers, service suppliers and carriers. Our racks are made to handle airplane tires easier, faster, and - most importantly - safely. Our aircraft tire racks are engineered for large aircraft tires. Whether you are storing standard 44" OD , 56" OD, or even larger aviation tires we can custom design racks for all your storage issues. Tier-Rack can design a rack system that helps you save valuable room by going vertical in your storage facility. Commonly racks are stacked 3 to 4 high, with a 4000# capacity per rack, via a fork truck. We also offer designs to make it easy to load and unload tires via ramps to the side of the racks. Typically our rack designs hold, 6, 8, or 10 aircraft tires. Tier-Rack has been the leader in aircraft tire racks, stack racks, and tire storage solutions since 1955. Our racks can be used with GoodYear aircraft tires, Dunlop aircraft tires and others.

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 today.
