ELOORAC window transport racks as an alternative to metal transport racks or wood disposable racks
Large windows and sliding door systems are attached to the Eloorac transport frame in the conventional way. In addition, by wrapping with stretch film, your product is even more secure and also delivered to the customer cleaner. On this window frame with 120 cm long runners, up to 8 standard windows can be placed. For systems with a thickness of up to 22 cm, e.g. 4 can be placed.

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 figure above shows the Eloorac transport frame in all its available and stocked heights. Which transport rack height is right for you ?

Basically, window manufacturers have the problem of having transport frames in the right size in stock. The Eloorac system is a good alternative here. Very long window transport frames can be assembled at any time. It doesn´t matter in which length.
A nice example is this long window transport rack. It consists of 4 standard transport racks type “T4HR-M80-QT120”. Smaller windows or sliding door systems can of course also be placed on the frame.

Videos about window transport racks
“STABI” plate for stiffening
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.

No extra tours because of empty window transport racks
The Eloorac transport system as a window 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 is back in the workshop or at the dealer’s, the Eloorac Transport racks can be easily stacked and temporarily stored.
As soon as several construction sites have been completed and some empty window transport racks have been collected, either the window 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 window manufacturer. Assuming that the trucks only drive once to the construction sites to deliver the full window transport racks and that there is no need for a second drive to the same place to collect the empty racks, savings in transport costs of around 30% – 50% can be expected.

Fixing goods to the transport frame + crane pallets
Here are a few example fortifications. Since Eloorac transport racks have some openings, a certain flexibility in the placement of your packaging tape is guaranteed. Most of the openings in the upright A-parts are so large that a roof batten with the dimension 40/60 mm can be inserted without any problems.
Long pallets stiffened by goods
The fear that the outer pallets of a long Eloorac transport frame will fall down when being lifted is unnecessary, as can be seen here. Since the goods are professionally fastened to the frame and by belts running under the pallet, the processor has tied a stable package. Nothing moves anymore.
Example that a window transport frame made of several Eloorac A parts can be mounted not only on Euro pallets but also on special pallets. The pallet on which the Eloorac T4HR-M120-4-QT200 frame is mounted measures 2.25 x 1.2 metres. The upright A-parts are stiffened by a stabilization plate. This plate and the central crossbar are not absolutely necessary and are therefore considered accessories.
To avoid damage to the goods during lifting with the pallet lifter “BEAMER” or by the lifting straps attached to the pallet lifter, Eloorac offers the spreader bar “SPREADER”. Like the pallet lifters, this is available in two sizes. By using the spreader beams, the belts are held far enough away from the goods, which are thus protected against pressure points or the like.

Eloorac window frames for narrow + high goods
A very important feature of the Eloorac window transport frames is their size. Eloorac´s are available in various sizes as standard. Let’s assume that very narrow windows have to be transported in a width of 100 cm. Here you could use an Eloorac window transport frame with 120 cm long runners. The frame is fastened on a single euro pallet so that a basic dimension of 120 x 80 cm is available.
The 100 cm wide windows are now placed on the 80 cm wide pallet. The windows then protrude by approx. 10 cm on each side, which is usually not a problem. In this way, for example, our Nordic customers transport their windows on Eloorac window transport racks. In the north the windows are usually very narrow. The Eloorac system is therefore very convenient for the local window manufacturers.
