Increase Personal Protective Equipment Storage In Your Facility
The COVID-19 crisis has highlighted the importance of keeping emergency supplies on hand. Hospitals already have to store those kinds of items, and know how much space they can take up. In a hospital setting, every square inch of space is needed for patients, so it’s important that storage space is maximized and organized.
Our Storage Experts have worked with hospitals and pharmacies for years to find the best storage solutions for their needs. Our mobile systems eliminate wasted aisle space and free up space for other uses.

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.

Storing Sterile Supplies and Pharmaceuticals Aboard a Navy Hospital Ship
The USNS Comfort is a 1000 bed hospital ship that has been deployed on humanitarian missions around the globe. It recently docked in Manhattan to help relieve New York City’s overburdened healthcare system during the COVID-19 crisis, and Spacesaver high density systems are playing a crucial role in keeping the ship’s pharmacy and sterile supply storage areas organized and safe.
Although the Comfort is a massive ship, the interior storage space is limited. As with any hospital, areas that are taken up by storage are spaces that could be used for patient care. The safety of the crew has to be a primary consideration as well, and staff were concerned about the previous storage systems in the pharmacy and sterile storage areas.
Storage experts worked with the ship’s medical staff to design safer solutions. The new high density systems roll along carriages with anti-tip and brakes for added safety. Custom rail-locking bars at the base, along with overhead brackets attached to the tops of the shelving, allow crew to lock down an open “underway” aisle and prevent movement.
To keep stored items organized and secure, most shelves have bin fronts and dividers, and some shelves are secured with tambour doors. Stationary carriages are fitted with shelving instead of end panels to allow for quick access to frequently used items.
