Maximize Capacity in Pharmacies and Supply Rooms

Maximize Capacity in Pharmacies and Supply Rooms

Fast Access and Organization in Pharmacies

In the ideal hospital supply room or pharmacy, techs have fast access to items through organization and optimized space. Pharmacy techs, often many at a time, would have space to access hundreds of items that are unboxed and repackaged daily.

That’s where we come in! Even if you don’t have the ideal footprint, our modular bin storage system is designed to accommodate constantly fluctuating inventory, and it makes the most of limited space. It can be configured on the spot and reconfigured as needed without tools and fasteners. With more space, and organized storage, techs and nurses can always access what they need.

Clothing Storage at the Fashion Institute of Technology

Clothing Storage at the Fashion Institute of Technology

A New Storage Area Where Everything is Beautifully Displayed, Easy to Access, and Safely Stored

Located in the heart of Manhattan, the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) is an internationally recognized college for design, fashion, art, communications, and business. The Museum at FIT is open to the public and creates exhibitions with its extensive collection of 50,000 items from the world’s most well-known designers including Adrian and Yves St Laurent.

Founded in 1969, the museum and the collections area had become overcrowded after decades of growth. Staff wanted to create an amazing experience for the public and improve the storage of their collection. They also wanted to attain accreditation from the American Alliance of Museums (AAM) – a prestigious distinction that recognizes museums for following best practices for collections storage and achieving their mission.

Expanding the museum’s overcrowded storage rooms wasn’t possible. so they had to maximize capacity to store their thousands of costumes, shoes, hats, and other accessories, to achieve accreditation.

They decided the best way to maximize capacity would be to install high density storage systems. The architect relocated the doors to create one long central aisle through each 5,000 square foot climate controlled room. On either side of the aisle, sit rows of mechanical assist high density storage systems.

The collections area is now a model of best practices for collections storage. When pieces aren’t on display, they’re housed in the high density systems, organized alphabetically by designer.

Staff love the new clean and simple storage area where everything is beautifully displayed, easy to access, and safely stored.

Room to Grow

As the Museum at FIT continues to build its collection the storage equipment provides room to grow without expanding the room’s footprint. The shelving is easily reconfigured without special tools, and allows staff to safely store many more objects in the same space as before.

A Secure Setting

The high density system offers protection from dust, light, and any water from the overhead fire sprinklers. Museum staff place and retrieve objects as needed, and museum visitors can view selections from the collection in the galleries. Researchers can also view objects online and in study areas.

Successful Accreditation

After years of preparation, renovation, rehousing, and organizing, the Museum at FIT received accreditation. The peer reviewers found the collections to be “well organized and carefully preserved.”

To others embarking on a storage facilities renovation, the Senior Conservator offered these words of advice, “You absolutely must have institutional support. And you have to be willing to learn about things they didn’t teach you in school. Listen to the architects, the space planners, the engineers. Draw upon their knowledge. It’s a lot of work, but it’s our job.”

Preparing Your Office for Social Distancing

Preparing Your Office for Social Distancing

It’s Time To Make Your Back-To-The-Office Plan

While everyone is working remotely, now is the perfect time to start creating your Back-To-The-Office Plan. Social distancing is the new norm and becoming increasingly important when thinking about the design and functionality of your workplace when everyone comes back in to the office.

An excellent way to create more space in your office is to address your storage. Did you know that you can compact your storage space to half its footprint?! With high density storage, you can create more space in your office for your employees to spread out and keep their social distance. Let us show you how!

Lets start with a look at the stationary shelving model. Conventional filing cabinets, lateral cabinets, or open shelving units have fixed aisles located between each row. This is wasted space between each aisle.

Compact high-density shelving and filing systems turn non-productive aisles into productive storage space by eliminating the need for multiple isles. This reduction in “wasted space” often times cuts storage space in half! This directly contributes to “Sustainable Sites” by helping to reduce building size and the development footprint, and preserving open space.

Another option you have is to add more carriages to double the amount of storage capacity in the same footprint. Increase productivity by configuring the system to have one or more moving aisles to balance end-user access activity level.

Lastly, and most importantly right now, by using high density storage, you are able to cut your storage footprint in half and use that extra space for staff to work and spread out. By using the space you have efficiently, you’re able to maximize the available area for your employees to keep them safe.
