Eloorac glass transport rack as storage rack

The Eloorac glass transport rack is not only suitable for transporting glass to your customer, but also for use as a glass storage system. Provide the glass manufacturer with your own Eloorac glass stands and instruct the glass manufacturer to pack them appropriately on the space-saving Eloorac glass frames. As soon as the goods are delivered to you, you can store the full glass blocks directly from the truck in your storage rack. This will save you from having to repack the many glasses.
These Eloorac glass frames are partially loaded with up to 2.1 tons of glass. No problem for the flexible transport system from Rietberg. Due to the sufficient, low construction method, it is possible to erect a second storage level directly above the first storage racks standing on the floor.
In this way, storage capacity is doubled or storage costs halved in one go. This alone is reason enough to switch to the Eloorac glass transport system.

Basic information about our transport racks

The Eloorac transport rack system is especially known for its flexibility. At any time it is possible to build a transport rack in the size you need. Only the height of the upright “A” parts, i.e. how high the transport rack is needed, needs to be considered at the beginning. Once an Eloorac basic model has been chosen, it will be possible in future to assemble transport racks of any length in purely theoretical terms. The picture above shows the Eloorac transport rack in all its available and stocked heights. Which transport rack height is right for you ?

Eloorac glass transport racks / glass frames in use

If glass doors are to be transported standing on the long edge, it makes sense to use a long pallet or two Euro pallets tied behind each other. This ensures that the sensitive all-glass doors are protected.
This glass transport on a single Euro plate is considerably riskier than with a longer pallet or two Euro plates placed one behind the other.
Securing of Eloorac glass transport racks on the truck. A 16 page load securing certificate is available. This is provided by Eloorac and can be presented to the police or BAG controls as a professional document.
The ” 3G Kompetenzzentrtum in Fulda “also offers training courses, ” Seminare und Weiterbildungen “as well as trade fairs and conferences on all aspects of load securing and transport logistics.
In the course of the many ELOORAC ideas with our customers, it became clear how a product can still be sufficiently protected despite a wooden edge. These include soft wood fibre boards, double laid corrugated board, foam profile NMC NOMAPACK U12-18, foam profile NMC NOMAPACK U Classic 10-20, foam profile NMC NOMAPACK U Tulip 5-15, self-adhesive foam pads and self-adhesive cork plates.
Products can be attached to the Eloorac in many different ways. Most openings on an Eloorac transport rack are large enough to accommodate a 40×60 mm roof batten. These are often used in the shipping departments. Due to the different openings in the A-parts of the glass frames, the most diverse fastening options can be implemented.

Optimum use of space due to Eloorac glass frames

Narrow or small glasses can only be transported standing on the long side of conventional glass frames. An example of this are shelves for shoe shops. These glass shelves are usually supplied in dimensions of 100 x 28 cm. However, a 28 cm narrow glass cannot be transported upright on glass racks. The Eloorac glass stillage enables the upright transport of narrow glasses. In this way, up to 66% of the transport area and transport costs can be saved.
The upright transport of glasses is the easiest and fastest way to save costs. Eloorac´s are intended for use on Euro pallets. They are 120 cm long. If you now place the all-glass doors upright on the Eloorac glass stillage, the space required for transport on the truck is significantly reduced.

The stabilization plate shown does not have to be used. The plate makes a high Eloorac frame more stable as long as the goods are not attached to it. Among other things the effect of the plate and how it is mounted is shown in the video “Stabilisation”. For lower frames the plates are usually not necessary.

Special trips to construction sites to retrieve empty transport racks are a thing of the past

The Eloorac transport system as a glass transport frame is a good alternative to conventional metal frames. The big advantage of the Eloorac window transport frames is the easy return of the empty, dismantled frames.
Left half: Empty metal glass transport racks are a thorn in the side of every client and site manager. The retrieval is very time-consuming and therefore cost-intensive.
Right half: After the glass has been installed on site, the fitter packs the dismantled glass transport frames into his assembly vehicle or onto the trailer. Advantage: Trucks no longer have to make the sometimes very long journey to the pick-up location. Once the assembly team has returned to the workshop or to the dealer, the Eloorac Transport racks can be easily stacked and temporarily stored.
As soon as several construction sites have been completed and some empty glass transport racks have been collected, either the glass manufacturer’s truck or some standard haulage company can pick up the pallets with the dismantled Eloorac transport racks from the dealer and transport them back to the glass manufacturer.
Assuming that the trucks only drive once to the construction sites to deliver the full glass transport racks and no second trip to the same place to pick up the empty racks has to take place, savings in transport costs of around 30% – 50% can be expected.

Eloorac glass rack vs. one-way frame

Delivering on disposable racks is very expensive.
Reason: Wooden one-way racks are only used ONCE. Afterwards the delivered person has to dispose the wooden racks himself. Eloorac glass transport racks have been reused more than 50 times.
Ultimately, the use of disposable racks means that a new glass frame has to be purchased, organised, stored and, above all, planned every time it is delivered. This means that unnecessary acquisition costs, storage costs, organisational and planning costs as well as transport costs for new one-way racks arise again and again.

Eloorac glass frame vs. metal frame

The return of empty metal racks is very cost-intensive and is out of proportion to the return of dismantled Eloorac glass racks. The argument that the trucks drive back anyway and can therefore take the empty metal racks with them is often not seen objectively enough. Just think: Trucks that drive empty through the area cause high costs. Even if there are empty metal racks on them.
Alternatively, forwarding agents are commissioned with the delivery. Eloorac transport racks are “easy to transport” due to the pallets used. By the way: Forwarders are able to learn. Many Eloorac users use freight forwarders for their deliveries.

This is annoying…

Empty transport racks that are forgotten on construction sites or are picked up only after weeks / months. This is not uncommon. The damage the industry has to bear here goes into the millions every year. We know Frmen who calculate 50.000 Euro each year for lost and damaged glass transport racks. The question arises whether 50,000 euros is such a small sum. Apparently, only a few companies change anything.

Great flexibility in the design of a glass transport rack

The Eloorac transport system can be seen as a kind of “Lego” system. The standard sets can be used to create window transport frames of any length. If you work with Euro pallets, they are simply connected with plastic tape. However, some Eloorac users have had their own large pallets made. In this way you will have more stable pallets, which are heavier due to their size.
Eloorac glass transport frames are in many ways different from glass frames of other glass transport system manufacturers. The Eloorac plug-in system is designed in such a way that glass transport racks for very narrow glasses, for example, can be mounted and lashed on a Euro pallet. This type of glass rack construction has enormous advantages over other glass transport racks or metal racks.
The runway pull-out aid is used where there is too little storage space. If the glass pane or all-glass door to be removed is placed on the roller conveyor, it is very easy to pull it out. Since it is now no longer necessary for employees to climb into the rear areas, the pallets can be placed closer together.
The type and length of the lower runners of the Eloorac glass transport racks is similar to that of metal racks. You can obtain Eloorac´s as a double-sided loadable A-frame (A-frame) which we label as “M” variants, as well as the single-sided loadable L-frame (L-frame).

The “Beamer” pallet lifter, specially developed by Eloorac, enables pallets to be lifted easily and safely with Eloorac glass frames. The advantage of the 4-strand system: The pallet always hangs balanced . Even unevenly packed pallets can be safely craneed with lifting straps of the same length.
