Increased Climate-Controlled Storage Capacity for Independent Seed Testing Company

One of the world’s largest independent seed testing companies was quickly running out of space in their climate-controlled storage facility. They needed more storage capacity and a better method to access, track and control samples, but wanted to avoid the potentially costly construction of an entirely new building.

Haldeman-Homme, the local Spacesaver Representative in North Dakota, was presented with this challenge and proposed the ActivRAC 7M system as the ideal storage solution. This high-density mobile storage solution eliminates the need for idle aisles and can more than double storage capacity as compared to traditional wire racking or static shelving. By planning renovations around this storage system, the company was able to build a new climate-controlled storage room on-site, rather than construct a new facility off-site in order to store their samples.

The rail used with this ActivRAC 7M solution was recessed into the unfinished concrete floor of the new room, so that it would be flush with the concrete to make traveling in and out of aisles with sample carts or wheeled ladders easier and less disruptive.
