Hannibal Industries Presents White Paper on Innovative TubeRack System

Stronger, Safer Racking System Solves Seismic Challenges

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 18, 2013) - Hannibal Industries, Inc., a leading storage system manufacturer and provider, announced today that is has created a white paper, "TubeRack: A Revolution in Steel Pallet Storage Rack Systems," on its revolutionary storage system that is stronger and safer than conventional racking systems. 

In earthquake prone areas like California, the Pacific Rim, South America, Japan and Southeast Asia, companies need to invest in storage solutions that will help mitigate the danger associated with seismic activity. While major efforts have been made to improve safety procedures, develop new technologies and implement stricter building codes in the U.S., there still remains a strong need to shore up earthquake resistance of a building's contents which can be displaced if the proper material handling solutions are not in place. 

The TubeRack System's dual-moment frame allows flexibility both front-to-back and side-to-side giving it the ability to withstand impacts and seismic events more safely with a company's product design. Its horizontal-bolt-together modular design handles more capacity with less steel in many instances, while reducing the stress on the slab. This all-new modular design also allows for future flexibility and lower freight costs.
