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!”

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.

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. Click here to see another locker room storage solution.
