Eloorac glass transport rack as storage rack

Picture of a large glass warehouse in which Eloorac glass racks are used as storage racks. All-glass doors are stored here and picked directly if required.
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.
Illustration of several Eloorac glass frames as storage racks for the storage and order picking of 8mm ESG all-glass doors.
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

Representation of the Eloorac transport frame Model overview with all model types including dimensions
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

Illustration of the Eloorac crossbar types "Q" and "QT" and how a glass transport frame or glass stillage is strapped on the loading area of a truck.
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.
Illustration of an Eloorac glass transport rack loaded with glasses for shower cubicles and all-glass doors. A detailed illustration shows the support profile made of PVC with a hardness of 70° Shore A.
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.
Eloorac's high glass transport racks or glass stillages are secured on the truck with straps.
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.
Image of two Eloorac glass transport racks mounted on a truck. The load securing test was carried out by the 3G Competence Centre in Fulda for the Eloorac transport systems.
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.
Illustration of various possibilities to implement edge protection on the Elooracc transport frame. The different, sometimes quite simple means used in industry to protect the goods are clearly visible. These include soft fibre boards, corrugated board, Nomapac / NMC Tulip, Nomapac / NMC U 12 - 18 or very simple adhesive pads which are available in a wide variety of designs.
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.
Illustration of some suggestions how products can be attached to Eloorac transport racks.
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

Comparison of how small or narrow glass shelves are transported in a conventional way on 3 glass blocks and that the transport of the glasses on an Eloorac glass transport frame saves up to 66% of the transport area.
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.
Illustration of Eloorac glass frames or glass transport racks on which large and high glass panes, as well as all-glass doors made of 8 mm ESG glass, are transported upright. The upright transport or storage of the glass doors saves a lot of floor space.
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.

Videos to the topic glass transport rack

The Eloorac transport frame is loaded with a ton of glass during the simulation of a full braking of a truck. It was tested at the VDZ testing institute in Dortmund. It can be seen how easy it is to secure the load professionally on the glass transport rack by using a PET tape on the Eloorac.
Scene from the video “Tests” which was recorded at the VDZ testing institute in Dortmund. This test simulates an emergency stop. The 1000 kg heavy goods slipped by only 3 mm.

“STABI” plate for stiffening

Illustration of the possible attachment of a stabilisation plate to an Eloorac transport frame. The higher e.g. the glass transport frame is chosen, the higher is the probability that a stabilizing plate will be used or makes sense. The details show what has to be taken into account when processing the stabilisation.
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.
Empty metal frames used for the transport of windows are standing on the construction site and waiting for the very complex return transport.
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.
Eloorac reusable transport racks are driven back to the workshop in assembly vehicles to save space and can then be transported to the manufacturer by a forwarding agent.
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

Illustration of many disposable wooden racks, which require a lot of space in contrast to dismountable Eloorac glass transport racks or glass stands. Clearly visible: Eloorac glass frames occupy considerably less space.
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

Illustration of less but much space consuming metal frames for glass, in contrast to dismountable Eloorac glass transport racks or glass frames. It can be seen that a large number of Eloorac glass frames occupy considerably less space.
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…

Illustration of transport racks made of metal that are standing or lying on the construction site. You can see how careless the customers are with the expensive transport racks. The damage to the glass industry amounts to several million euros annually. Apparently the glass manufacturers earn quite good money, otherwise something would change.
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

From 4 disassembled Eloorac standard transport racks and Euro pallets or EPAL pallets, the most different Eloorac transport rack variants are created.
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.
Illustration of the individually expandable Eloorac transport rack plug-in system with the illustration of the fastening of 2 A-parts with PET tape on a Euro pallet.
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.
Picture of the Eloorac "RUNWAY" system / pull-out aid. The glass drawer is used when there is not enough space in the warehouse. The runway is designed for glass doors up to 10 mm thick and can be easily placed on the pallet.
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.
Representation of the Eloorac principle which runner lengths fit to the different Euro pallet combinations.
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 pallet lifter “Beamer” – The tool for craneing glass frames

Illustration of craneable Euro pallets which are equipped with Eloorac glass frames or glass transport racks and which are lifted safely with a crane using lifting straps and beamer lifting irons.
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.

This page deals with glass transport racks & glass A-frames for small or large glass panes.
