Tamarack Lumber High Density Storage and Lockers

Tamarack Lumber High Density Storage and Lockers

Organized Office with Mobile System and Employee Lockers

Tamarack Lumber has been offering first class service to customers since 1973. They have an outstanding selection of products covering 35 acres, including a Truss Manufacturing Plant, a Retail Store, a Corporate Office, and enough lumber and plywood to supply any construction site.

TAMARACK NEEDED HELP MANAGING FILES AND COMPLYING WITH RETENTION POLICY

In their new corporate office, Tamarack Lumber needed help storing and managing their files, and complying with their retention policy of keeping files for 7 years. They also wanted to increase security for their HR and client files in their new space.

In their lunchroom, Tamarack needed a place for employees to store their personal belongings while at work. So they reached out to the experts at Spacesaver Solutions Inc. for help.

High Density System and Employee Lockers Maximize Storage, Organize Files, and Secure Belongings

Our Storage Experts designed two storage solutions that would allow Tamarack Lumber to store their materials more strategically, manage the security of their files, create visual solutions to apply retention policies, and securely store employees’ personal belongings.

The powered high density mobile system stores the company’s HR, AR, and AP files along with other materials. When staff need to access an aisle, they simply press the “move” button on the touchscreen and the correct aisle opens up. For added security, the touchscreens on restricted aisles require a passcode before the carriages will move and allow access. This ensures that only authorized staff are able to access the sensitive information stored within.

Located in the lunchroom, we designed 56 employee day use lockers to store their personal belongings. The lockers are operated with a combination lock so staff don’t have to worry about managing lost or stolen keys. The new lockers help tidy up the lunch area making it a great place for staff to take a break and enjoy their lunches.

Staff at Tamarack Lumber are thrilled with their new storage solutions. They can now better manage the security of their files, improve their records management processes, and increase capacity with room to grow.

“Our smart storage and retrieval solution makes a smooth day!”

Vertical Storage Carousel for Furniture Manufacturer

Founded in 1981, Woodlore began producing custom laminate office furniture in a 5,000 square foot manufacturing facility. Over the years, they’ve continued to grow and expand, and today their 140,000 square foot facility features state-of-the-art equipment and automated processes that are supported by their proprietary resource planning software.

HÄNEL ROTOMAT VERTICAL STORAGE BRINGS GOODS TO THE OPERATOR AT THE PRESS OF A BUTTON

As a leader in office furniture manufacturing, Woodlore has many sub-assembly components used on a daily basis. Due to their growth, their current storage system which had served them well for many years, needed to evolve.

They needed to implement a storage solution that would organize their supplies, improve productivity and ergonomics, while also minimizing their storage footprint, so they reached out to Spacesaver Solutions Inc. for help.

Vertical Storage Creates up to 60% More Storage Capacity and Improves Efficiency

Our Storage Experts worked with staff at Woodlore to design a Hänel Rotomat vertical carousel storage system. Designed using the Ferris wheel principle, the Hänel Rotomat brings items to the operator – not the operator to the goods. By making use of the available room height, carousel storage creates up to 60% more storage capacity.

Users operate the Rotomat by simply entering the item they want into the computer on the system. This activates the carousel to rotate, bringing the item to the user at the ergonomically designed retrieval height.

The Woodlore system is 23′ tall with 30 carriers and 10 intermediate shelves. The Rotomat features custom graphics with the company’s logo and official colours. We also supplied custom bins to maximize space within the Rotomat.

The system produces the highest output, as it can process an entire work order without ever making more than one full rotation. By moving clockwise and counterclockwise, the Rotomat organizes the work order in an optimized path to maximize efficiency.

Woodlore is now able to store approximately 515 square feet of sub-assembly inventory on a 46 square foot floor space. They love that they’re able to maximize their storage space and easily retrieve the parts they need.

“Its footprint saves space. Its ease of use saves time!”

ATHLETIC STORAGE SOLUTIONS FOR TORONTO RAPTORS TRAINING FACILITY

The Toronto Raptors are Canada’s basketball team. Since their start in 1995, they have won six division titles, made the playoffs 11 times, and won the 2019 NBA Championship! While they play their games at the Scotiabank Arena, they spend most of their time training at the OVO Athletic Centre.

CUSTOM DESIGNED STORAGE SOLUTIONS PROTECT PLAYERS’ ATHLETIC EQUIPMENT

Opened in February 2016, the OVO Athletic Centre is 68,000 sq ft. The facility has two full size basketball courts, locker rooms, training and medical facilities, player amenities, and storage areas for their equipment.

When the OVO Athletic Facility was being built, our Storage Experts worked with the architects to design and plan the storage for the building. Working together, we created user friendly athletic storage solutions to securely store the team’s athletic wear, exercise equipment, and player’s personal belongings.

Storage Solution Includes Mobile Storage, Worktables, and A High Security Locker

We designed two high density storage systems, movable Rousseau worktables, and a secure locker to hold players’ valuables when training at the facility.

The first high density mobile system is powered. Located in the back storage area, the system stores the team’s jerseys, clothing, and other memorabilia. Staff simply press a button to move the large carriages and access the aisles.

Also located in the back storage area are two Rousseau worktables. These worktables feature stainless steel tops for durability, many doors and drawers for added storage, and are placed on castors to allow staff to move them to where they are most needed.

The second high density system is a mechanical assist system, located in the training area. Players simply turn the three spoke handles to access weights, jump ropes, exercise bands, foam rollers, and other miscellaneous exercise equipment.

Lastly, we designed a high security locker usually used in police departments to store players’ valuables while they are working out in the training area. The locker features multiple bins and pull out drawers to securely store a variety of items.

“The Raptors love their Spacesaver storage solution!”

The Hillman Group started in 1964 as a fastener company, serving independently-owned hardware stores. During the past five decades, they’ve leveraged their unique ability to simplify the hardware buying experience and become the industry leader to top home improvement and local hardware retailers.

NEW LOCKERS SECURELY STORE EMPLOYEES’ BELONGINGS WHILE ALLOWING FOR VENTILATION AND VISIBILITY

The company was opening a new location in Scarborough and wanted a locker solution that would securely store belongings for 423 employees while allowing for ventilation and visibility into the lockers. They also wanted the lockers to be able to accept electrical wiring for charging ports at a later date.

Our Storage Experts designed multiple banks of three-tiered  metal lockers with hasp locks and perforated doors in a diamond mesh pattern. The lockers were installed on a recessed toe kick base for enhanced ergonomics and feature cut-outs to accommodate electrical wiring which will be installed by an electrician in the future.

Staff love their new lockers! They’re not only functional and durable, but look great as well!

HIGH DENSITY STORAGE HOUSES UNIFORMS FOR THE TORONTO BLUE JAYS

From the start of their inaugural baseball season in 1977, the Toronto Blue Jays have been Canada’s team, winning 6 East Titles, 2 AL Pennants and 2 World Series Titles! The team was running out of space for storing their uniforms and needed help.

CUSTOM BRANDED STORAGE SYSTEM ORGANIZES THE TEAM’S MANY JERSEYS

Today’s modern baseball team now requires multiple home and away jerseys along with several special occasion uniforms. With limited existing equipment storage space at the Rogers Centre, this increased storage requirement created an issue.

Our Storage Experts designed a powered high density mobile system to store the team’s uniforms, hats, helmets, batting gloves, shoes, bats, and jackets. This system features custom branding, and allows the team to store all their needed equipment in the same footprint without expensive renovations or expansions.

Everything is organized and easy to access, and the equipment manager couldn’t be happier!
