Saving space and keeping frequently-used tools accessible

Do you need to move supplies with very little notice?   Do you need secure tool storage?  This can happen frequently in the military.  In the U.S. Air Force, lives depend on well-maintained planes. Extensive maintenance projects take place in specialized facilities, but technicians also need to perform day-to-day maintenance as issues arise. Tools and supplies for those jobs need to be organized and in good condition, and they need to be kept in a space that’s both secure and convenient.

To store commonly-used tools, parts, and supplies, the Support Section Chief at this Air Maintenance Unit wanted to set up a cage in the supply room near the exit door to the runway. Space was a problem, though: the shelving could be set up against the wall, but the cage would need to extend three feet into the room, beyond the outer edge of the shelving, to provide ADA-compliant access to stored items.

A consultant worked with engineers to create a custom solution: RaptorRAC™ Widespan Shelving encased in perforated steel sliding doors and surrounds. Perforated steel “walls” are welded to the sides. The doors slide on overhead supports along the front of the shelving and lock to ensure the contents are secure.

This solution securely stores tools, parts, and supplies while taking up half the space that a cage would require to store the same items.
