Mobile Shelving Organizes Football Equipment

Disorganization and lack of space had become serious problems. With the help of powered mobile shelving, the team was able to get organized and make better use of the space in the equipment room.

Storage Problems in the Football Equipment Room

The football equipment room was old, cramped, and disorganized. On top of everything, the team was quickly running out of storage space, which didn’t help when trying to organize gear and equipment.

The inefficiencies caused a lot of problems for the equipment managers. Having gear ready for game day is essential to things running smoothly. But it took staff so much time to find items because they were boxed up and in hard to reach places.

For the new facility, the equipment managers wanted a state-of-the-art storage system that would keep items organized and optimize their space. Since Spacesaver® powered mobile shelving is used at many of the other colleges in the division, the equipment managers knew they wanted it at their facility.

Features of the Powered Mobile Shelving

Due to the size of the storage units, a powered operational control was selected for ease of access and movement. Users are able to press a button and enter the aisle immediately and without the normal delay associated with hand crank controls.

The mobile shelving is also equipped with a floor lock, which uses a key controlled tumbler lock mechanism mounted near the floor level that interfaces with the systems electric controls. This lock ensures that the shelving is completely secure when it’s not being used.
