High Density = High Yields
For more than 40 years, Donnegan Systems has helped businesses save space while keeping materials organized and protected. Now our innovative technology is being used by indoor growers in high-density cannabis grow facilities to maximize their space and their profit. Every system is custom designed to make the best use of available space. The rows in the above facility are 42 feet long, and staff are able to move the rows effortlessly with mechanical-assist handles. The system is designed for heavy-duty industrial applications and consists of shelving or pallet racking mounted on “carriages” that move along rails installed into or on top of the floor. Our systems are so strong they are able to support two levels of plants, lights, fans, and irrigation systems, enabling the facility to dramatically increase its yields.
Double your storage capacity and increase your yields by removing wasted aisle space. The shelving moves along tracks in the floor to open up or compact depending on your need at that time.
Because our system is so strong, it’s able to support two levels of plants, lights, fans, and irrigation systems, enabling the facility to greatly increase its yields. The system also helps improve workflow and efficiency which means your staff can perform at their highest level.
A STRONG, RELIABLE SYSTEM
Donnegan’s experience with industrial clients has resulted in a robust, reliable system that has already been proven to stand the test of time. For decades, ActivRAC systems have been moving heavy loads over long spans on military bases and in industrial warehouses – now it will help growers in this emerging market place.
A PHASED APPROACH
The ActivRAC system featured in these images was initially installed in a single room, and the increased productivity in that room justified the need for new ActivRAC systems in additional rooms. We work with our customers to minimize disruption and downtime, and will even time the new system installation to coincide with the end of each room’s harvest.
Our systems contain features such as four-foot-wide tables that make it easy for employees to reach every plant. Aisles can be generated where they’re needed, and aisle widths can be adjusted. For instance, one person working with a large bin can open up a single wide aisle, while teams of people working simultaneously on both sides of a table can create narrower aisles on each side.
Because large-scale cannabis cultivation is still a relatively new concept, many communities are still developing local building regulations. That said, our team has decades of experience in working with general contractors, architects, and local officials to ensure that systems are in compliance with all applicable codes.
We take great care to make sure your plants are stored securely, and that means taking into consideration things trellises and netting to help keep the cannabis plants from sprawling into the aisles, where they might get bumped or broken. Proper spacing allows all the plants to get adequate exposure to light, which encourages bud formation, which is something we plan for when taking into account our system design.
Mobilized Storage Systems can help growers gain higher yields and streamline workflows, without having to build expensive additions or construct a new facility. Maximizing your capacity doesn’t have to mean making your space more overcrowded. We work with you to design a system that fits the needs of your staff and allows multiple people to work within the same area comfortably.
Below is a before and after image of the indoor grow facility featured in this post. You can tell just how much our High Density Mobile solution helped increase their use of vertical space without making it too overcrowded. In fact, adding our system increased the space they had and allowed for a better layout and efficient use of their warehouse. the lighting and other features surrounding this system were improved by incorporating them into the High Density system itself.
