HIGH DENSITY STORAGE SOLUTION PROTECTS 170 YEARS OF BASEBALL HISTORY

Created in 1982, The Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum proudly holds over 170 years of Canadian Baseball history in St. Marys Ontario.

St. Marys is home to one of the first recorded games of baseball in North America. It took place on June 4, 1838 and was written about by St. Marys native, and Mayor, Adam Ford.

ARCHIVES STORAGE SYSTEM PROTECTS COLLECTION FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS

The Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame was building a 1200 sq ft storage archive addition to their museum, and wanted to create a place to store their baseball items, paper, and books. So they reached out to the Storage Experts at Spacesaver Solutions Inc. for help.

Our Storage Experts worked with the museum to design a mechanical assist, high density storage system that can store 450 bats, 300 jerseys, 170 boxes, as well as large miscellaneous items such as trophies, books, photos, and framed art.

Staff at the museum are thrilled with their new storage system as it maximizes their archives storage while protecting their collection for future generations.

“The new storage shelving really allows us to organize our collection and provides more room for storage which is vital for the future of the museum.”.

Director of Operations, Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum

TORONTO MAPLE LEAFS SCORE UPDATED HOCKEY EQUIPMENT STORAGE

As one of the original six members of the National Hockey League, the Toronto Maple Leafs have a long team history. The team and their loyal fan base have called the Air Canada Centre their home arena since 1999, but when it came time for a renovation of the team’s equipment and locker room, the hockey equipment storage room was an afterthought.

While the new storage room looked beautiful, it was a lot smaller than their previous space. The equipment manager’s primary goal was to fit all of the team’s bulky equipment into one central area while still having easy access to the gear needed for practices, games, and workouts. The equipment manager had visited and spoken with managers of multiple other teams, and he’d seen how Spacesaver Solutions’ mobile shelving helped add storage capacity in other locker rooms and hockey equipment storage rooms.

HIGH-DENSITY MOBILE STORAGE SYSTEM FOR HOCKEY ATHLETIC EQUIPMENT

He reached out to Spacesaver Solutions Inc. to see if we could help find a way to accommodate all the uniforms, pads, helmets, skates, and over 1,500 sticks into the new smaller space. Rob McClelland, our Storage Expert has extensive experience designing athletic equipment storage systems and took a full inventory of all items that the Toronto Maple Leafs needed to store. After discussing different options for organizing the gear, Rob and the equipment manager settled on a convenient way to organize all of the items using a high density mobile storage system.

ORGANIZED SHELVING OF HOCKEY EQUIPMENT

STORAGE FOR EASE OF ACCESS

The new system eliminates static aisles to allow the Maple Leafs to use every inch of space and make the most of the confined area. Similar items are grouped on the same shelf, with separate cubbies for different sizes of shirts, uniforms, and more. Lightweight, easy-to-grab items like gloves are stocked on higher shelves, while bulkier items are kept on larger, lower shelves for easy retrieval. Dividers and bins help ensure that smaller items like socks are easily accessible while keeping them organized and secure on the shelves. Even chewing gum for the players has a designated space on the shelving system!

TORONTO MAPLE LEAF’S HOCKEY EQUIPMENT STORAGE ROOM MORE THAN JUST A FUNCTIONAL SPACE

For added security and convenience, the high density system is equipped with a priority aisle setting. When not in use, the system automatically resets itself to restrict access to certain aisles while leaving the most heavily used aisle available. And the finishing touch? Custom-made, 3D Plexiglas team logos to adorn each carriage.

With the new system in place, the Maple Leafs no longer have to worry about running out of space in their small room. When it’s time to set up for a home game or pack up for an away game, the whole process is faster and more streamlined with all items in their designated cubbies. With the added details, the hockey equipment storage room is more than just a functional space – it’s a source of pride for the entire organization.
