ELOORAC window transport racks as an alternative to metal transport racks or wood disposable racks

Windows are packed for delivery abroad on Eloorac transport racks for windows. 8 windows are placed on these window racks. The obvious load-bearing capacity of Eloorac frames, which are mounted on Euro pallets as always, is repeatedly confirmed by customers.

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.

Carton packed front doors and side entrance doors are transported on Eloorac window transport racks. Electric lift trucks can effortlessly move the transport racks full of windows due to the Euro pallet base.

Other products such as carton packed front doors and side entrance doors were packed on an Eloorac transport rack. Transport with electric pallet truck is possible at any time due to the use of Euro pallets.

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

Examples of window transport racks

Basic details about the T4H-M80 transport frame from Eloorac. The most important dimensions and designs of the window transport frame can be seen, which is also used for the transport of front doors or barrel loading elements.

You can see the Eloorac transport frame which in this case was assembled from 2 standard sets to a 2.4 meter long glass stillage or window transport frame. By using Euro pallets it is very easy to extend the transport racks further and further.
Illustration of a T4HR-M80 Eloorac reusable transport rack in the size 360 x 80 x 190 (210) cm (WxDxH) which is achieved by using 3 EPAL pallets. Here the flexibility can be seen which is comparable to that of a LEGO modular system.
Picture of 2 very long Eloorac transport racks from model T4HR-M80. You can see that almost any length of transport frames or glass frames as well as window frames can be designed. Eloorac as the alternative to metal transport racks or also one-way racks and by the Euro pallet very simply on any length combinable.

Another picture of a T4HR-M120 Eloorac reusable transport rack in the size 240 x 120 x 190 (210) cm (WxDxH). This variant, however, consists of 6 upright A-pieces which are attached to 3 EPAL pallets or Euro pallets which lie next to each other. By the use of the additional A-parts, narrow windows can be placed better on the transport frames for windows.

Illustration of an Eloorac transport rack for very large windows which was assembled from 4 Eloorac standard sets. From the same frame, 2 shorter window frames will probably be created during the next use. Eloorac is just like LEGO System individually adaptable.

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.

Very long window transport frame consisting of 4 Euro pallets and 4 Eloorac standard sets. With a total length of 4.8 metres, every window manufacturer is able to transport very long sliding door systems or panorama windows.

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.

“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.

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.

Empty metal frames used for transporting 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 is back in the workshop or at the dealer’s, 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 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

Mounting examples

Illustration of some details and suggestions on how to attach goods to Eloorac transport racks.

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

A forklift lifts a long Eloorac transport rack. The transport frame, which is used in this case for wooden panels used in exhibition construction, remains balanced. Although the forklift truck with its forks engages centrally in the 4 Euro pallets arranged in a row, the outer pallets do not hang downwards.

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.

An Eloorac frame for transporting windows when still empty. The transport rack is shown here with a special pallet. The upright A-parts are stiffened by a stabilization plate. The pallet is lifted with the palletlifter Beamer and with 4-strand sling.

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.

Illustration of the spreader bar "SPREADER" from Eloorac and the pallet handler "BEAMER". The left side of the picture shows the lifting of an Eloorac transport frame with the beamer pallet lifters. On the right you can see the spreader beams. These are used when the lifting belt must not touch the goods.

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

Illustration of an Eloorac window transport frame on a Euro pallet with very narrow, high windows.

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.

Illustration of upright front doors stored and transported on Eloorac transport racks. Here, several front doors are moved or loaded by just one person. The result is enormous savings in personnel, fewer sickness cases due to back problems and less damage to the doors to be moved.
This picture shows a 3.2 meter long window transport frame. On top of this stand very large, 30 cm thick windows mounted on cruise ships.
In order to reduce the amount of space lost during delivery, the Eloorac model type "S0" allows the space between the A-frames to be fully utilized.
Eloorac transport racks are individually adjustable in length and do not only fit on Euro pallets.
