Automated carousel racks for storing rolled awning & sunscreen materials

store and unreel rolled awning and sunscreen materials from automated carousel racksAwning and sunscreen materials are large, cumbersome, and difficult to store. Often, they are stored away from the production area, where employees have to spend much of their time just searching and retrieving the materials before transporting them back to the production area. Lifting and transporting these heavy items could lead to work-related injury for employees and damage to products. Automated carousel racks make it much easier to store and unreel rolled awning and sunscreen materials, saving time, material damage, and injury to employees. In addition, the automated carousel racks save space by maximizing vertical storage space and decreases retrieval time. The carousels can either be installed as stand-alone units or can be integrated with cutting tables, as shown in the video above.
