Extra-Wide Compact Storage Created for National Guard
09 Jul 2018
When National Guard members get the call to deploy, they need to be ready for anything. That means they need to store a wide variety of equipment and supplies, and their gear needs to be kept organized and easily accessible to ensure a quick and effective response.
Members of this Utah Air National Guard unit needed to create a better storage solution for their gear, which included ladders, bins, duty bags, and toolboxes of various sizes. They needed a system that could:
• Accommodate large and bulky items
• Stay organized to facilitate gear retrieval, replacement, and inventory
• Be reconfigured as gear was acquired and retired
• Be locked down to prevent “borrowing”
• Optimize space in an under-utilized area in the warehouse
They contacted the Spacesaver distributor in Salt Lake City for a free space assessment, and over the next few weeks the Spacesaver consultant worked with them to design a system that met all their needs. To provide plenty of vertical and horizontal space, the solution includes 10’ tall RaptorRAC™ Widespan Shelving on “piggy-back” or extra-wide compact mobile systems. Custom-engineered back panels prevent items from sliding off the shelving, and waist-high locking mechanisms provide security.
In the photo on the right, Guardsmen had just returned from deployment and stacked their gear near the locked system, where it would be ready for replacement on the shelves.
