Pope Air Force Base Relies on Mobile Shelving for Secure and Efficent Storage

Pope Air Force Base Special operations squadron at Fort Bragg in Fayetteville, NC required a better storage solution for their wide range of highly specialized and uniquely sized items.

Within a new special squadron facility that provides support and supply functions, unique storage solutions were designed into seven areas to optimize space utilization, improve organization and maximize control and security. The Non-Commissioned Officer in Charge (NCOIC) of Material Control remarked,”Special Operations is growing and taking on a new, more multi-faceted role within the military. To support our squadron, we built a new building with state-of-the-art facilities and security and we felt it was important to invest in better storage throughout the building.

To satisfy the unique equipment requirements, a wide range of storage solutions were incorporated. Drawers are used to house small items while standard shelving houses medium sized items.“The Spacesaver mobile shelving system helps us to better store our bulk items as well as our smaller items,” explained the NCOIC. “When we deploy we can quickly locate what is needed and get them their supplies.” Security is no longer an issue either. With all of the weapons and components stored inside the mobile system, it is simply rolled together and kept locked at all times; thereby satisfying double-lock requirements.
