Thermoplastic Coating on Extra-Wide Shelves

Spacesaver helps an Air Force base store and protect new parts 

When the Hill Air Force Base needed to store new parts and components for the next generation F-35 aircraft, they turned to the local Spacesaver consultant for a compact solution that would accommodate their changing storage requirements.

The Spacesaver consultant drew up a plan that would repurpose the base’s existing high-density rails and carriages, as well as the shelving uprights, from three different areas and consolidate them in one room.

Because some of the new items to be stored were quite large, the consultant recommended ordering Spacesaver’s new 72”-wide 4-Post shelving, which can accommodate items up to about 70 inches wide. A thermoplastic paint coating was applied to comply with requirements to prevent metal-on-metal contact between the aircraft parts and the shelving.
