Parachute Storage in Less Space
In any given US airborne division, there could be tens of thousands of parachutes that need to be stored. Of course, stacking this incredibly important and expensive equipment in a pile isn't an option, but most military facilities are still faced with the challenge of having a limited amount of storage space available. Parachute storage system containers mounted on high density racks allow for the specialized storage of parachutes while utilizing a compact floor area to save space and provide fast, easy access.

Convenient Access & Parachute Protection
Jumpers' lives depend on the quality of their gear. Mains and reserves for parachute storage muse be kept dry, secure, and protected from snags and tears. Some military facilities use wire baskets for parachute storage, but these are often less than ideal. Many users find that they are difficult to access, and the wires were prone to rusting, which causes bending and breaking. Broken wires open up more risk to snag on packed parachutes and create an extremely hazardous situation, especially if the snag isn't noticed before deployment.
Parachute containers are designed specifically for parachute storage, providing durable, heavy-duty steel construction as well as forklift-accessible and fold-down sides for convenient access. The strong, clean containers are sized to store enough chutes for a plane full of jumpers in an efficient amount of space.
Military facilities can achieve even more space savings with a high density rack system to keep containers organized and accessible. Industrial racking is mounted on carriages that move side to side along a rail system, which eliminates wasted space between aisles while allowing quick access to every container. To access an aisle, the user simply pushes a button. The aisles can be made wide enough for forklifts so they can easily access the stored containers. Click here to watch how high density racks work.
