Importance of Stack Rack Safety in Warehouses

The importance of safety in a warehouse environment cannot be overstated. With forklifts and other heavy machinery carrying weighty loads from one place to another, a simple mistake can easily lead to property and product damage, injuries, or even worse! It’s no wonder why so much emphasis is put on safety training for those people operating machinery. However, there are also many safety concerns associated with how stack racks are used as well. As one of the top suppliers of industrial-grade racks and shelves, including tire racks, shipping racks, and stacking pallets, Tier-Rack has become an expert in safe storage. This blog will go over some of the best practices in warehouse safety and potential hazards to avoid.

How to Avoid Potential Warehouse Hazards

Almost all accidents can be avoided by following the guidelines created by OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) in combination with the safety rules implemented by the warehouse manager. This includes:

·      Store heavier loads on the lower shelves.

·      Make sure that stack racks are loaded straight and even.

·      Employees should be properly trained in lifting techniques and machinery use.

·      Make sure that aisles and storage areas are free of clutter and of any items that can cause fire, tripping, explosion, and pest infestation.

·      Protect your racking system from collision damage with frame end guards, drive-in floor channels, and rack bollards.

·      Provide adequate lighting in the storage facility.

Best Practices for Warehouse Storage Safety

Keeping your employees and products safe is vital for your success in the storage business. Here are some safety tips that can help you create a safer work environment:

·      Conduct Regular Inspections – Inspecting your racking system on a regular basis will help keep you up to date on any damages and potential hazards. You should check for sagging, leaning, damaged beams, dents, or other damages. For a more comprehensive inspection, you should seek third-party racking specialists with experience like Tier-Rack.

·      Avoid Improper Rack Use – There are a wide variety of different types of racks, and each was designed for specific storage use. For example, a tire rack is for tires and pad racks are for carpets. Using them to store something other than what they were designed for can cause the racks to break, resulting in damage or injury.

·      Don’t Exceed Capacity – All stack racks come with a maximum capacity threshold, and adding more than what it is designed to handle will lead to structural failure. It is recommended by ANSI and OSHA that all racking systems display information about its load capacity for all to see. Overhanging products are also a common safety hazard that should be avoided.

·      Correct Installation – Incorrect installation of a racking system is a major safety hazard for everyone in the warehouse. Make sure that the racks are level, flush and aligned. For certain instances, they should also be anchored to the floor for better stability.

Tier-Rack has been an industry leader for over 60 years and provides you with custom racks that meet your specific needs in order to ensure optimum warehouse safety. We also buy and sell used stack racks that meet the strictest safety requirements. Simply put, Tier-Rack is your go to source for racks and shelving.

Pretty soon, self-driving vehicles that run on clean energy will take over the roads and make car accidents and pollution a thing of the past. One thing that won’t change however, is our need of tires. In fact, the need for tires and tire storage will only rise as the world’s population of drivers increases.

The answer to these questions will not only dictate the style of tire rack you need, but also how your warehouse will be set up.

You may find that there are restrictions on rack height and storage capacity, which you will want to know before setting up the warehouse.

Used Tire Racks That Work Like New

LacingTires

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.  You can also choose USed Tire Racks for your shop that work like new!

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. 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.

Our product design team will deliver a solution that will hold your items securely in a cost effective stack rack.

Use a Bin to Store Your Warehouse Goods

FoldingBin1

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.

A Warehouse Of Tire Racks Can Save Your Business

PassengerTire 1 Big

Running a warehouse is a complicated job.  Beyond the job of organizing schedules and keeping people on task, keeping the warehouse's stock accessible and safe is the main task.  Finding a balance between rotating old stock forward, keeping aisles clear, and ensuring that the stock is stored in a way that the items don't become damaged is very important.

This balance is especially important in warehouses that store tires, such as tire shops, big box stores, auto repair shops, and any business that repairs their own vehicles.  These warehouses need to have their stock accessible, as their customers need to have their vehicles fixed, and moving the customers in and out quickly can make all of the difference in staying open and going out of business.  Tires also have to be stored correctly physically to keep them from warping, which can lead to blowouts and lawsuits.

Save Space With Used Nesting Racks

QuakerLN4Nested

A Used Nesting Rack, when placed in your warehouse, saves space for you.  It's a rack that works as both a Movable Rack and a nestable one - it helps out in bulk storage and is often used for bulk bag storage in warehouses.  If you need to store assets in this way, the Nesting Rack is the way to go.

Sometimes these racks are called a nestainer, jarke cupl-up, nestrack, nesting bin, nestable pallet, or nestable pallets. They can hold heavy loads (they are typically stacked in columns of 4 or 5 racks, with each rack holding 2,000 to 4,000 pounds). Empty racks and bins can be "nested" - one rack set inside another rack - up to 6 or 7 at a time. They are a storage system that saves time because the empty racks can be nested by one fork lift operator. A bundle of nested bins occupies less space than empty standard heavy duty pallet rack. The rear posts act as stops for your loads, so your fork lift operator does not have to guess how far into the nestable pallet the load should go. Many sizes and load capacities are available for Tier-Rack nesting racks.

If you are in the market for a nestable rack that can stack and save space while storing bulk items, the Nesting Rack is the product that will serve you best in your warehouse.  Don't spend another day precariously stacking other racks or leaving bulk bags sitting around your warehouse.  Get organized and save space with Nesting Racks from Tier-Rack.

How a Perforated Tire Rack Deck Makes Your Warehouse Safer

PassengerTire 1 Big

When businesses store tires, they need to know that they are safely stored, and that their WAREHOUSE will be safe.  Believe it or not, this is a very important question in storage.  When racks store items, such as tires, they need to be setup to allow water to sluice through, going from fire suppression systems all the way to the floor to put out fires in your storeroom.

Perforated deck 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.

Tier-Rack Corp of St. Louis, MO has been providing custom designed and manufactured tire racks since 1955.  Tier-Rack has created hundreds of customized racks for every shape and size of tire, using wire mesh and perforated decking to support the tires while keeping them from warping during long periods of non-use.  Let us show you how our years of manufacturing experience can provide you with quality earthmoving machine tire racks at a very affordable price.
