Leading Australian logistics systems provider and manufacturer of ColbyRack, Dematic has developed an innovative storage solution for clubs to store skis and boards.
Dematic engineers have combined standard pallet racking components with clever roller-mounted shelves to create a new containerised storage system to store a large numbers of skis and boards when a club runs out of room.
Innovative design features in the new roller rack system include standard pallet racking uprights fixed to the inside of the container to support beams, with rollers mounted at intervals so the skis are stored securely. The integrated roller system facilitates easy loading and unloading of the craft into the container, simplifying the job and minimising damage to the craft.
Dematic CEO and keen surf life saver, Glen Borg drove the innovative engineering design and donated the first solution of its type to Newport Surf Life Saving Club. Glen worked closely with Mal Reid, another Newport SLS member to provide a scalable, flexible and modular solution that was simple to install.
Glen Borg explains that Dematic has been manufacturing storage racks for nearly 50 years; putting together the new storage solution was a simple process.
