High-Yield Medical Cannabis Grow

Spacesaver helps design a commercial grow room setup that saves space, increases yields, and promotes employee comfort and safety.

Planning for Expensive Space

Real estate costs are soaring, so optimizing space can have a huge impact on your bottom line. This indoor cannabis grow uses Spacesaver’s ActivRAC® Mobilized Storage System to gain higher yields and streamline workflows, without having to build expensive additions or construct a new facility.

Beyond real estate expenses, the growers have to keep the air inside the building controlled for temperature and humidity. The larger the facility, the higher the costs, so saving space is important.

Static Tables

The growers’ first attempt at saving space involved placing plants on low tables. The aisles were narrow and cramped, and the tables were too wide for the employees to comfortably reach across.

Two-tier shelves that move

The new commercial grow room setup doubled the growing area and improved working conditions. Two levels of Spacesaver’s wide-span shelving on the ActivRAC® Mobilized Shelving System formed the core of the new floorplan.

The company’s owners worked with the local Spacesaver consultant to design a new grow room floorplan using ActivRAC. The ActivRAC system consists of shelving or pallet racking mounted on “carriages” that move along rails installed into or on top of the floor.

Save space. Increase yields. Help keep employees happy and healthy.

“Our goal is to maximize our space — and we’ve been able to do it with Spacesaver’s help.”

The medical cannabis facility gained these benefits:

Optimized space

Every Spacesaver system is custom designed to make the best use of available space. The rows in this facility are 42 feet long, and staff are able to move the rows effortlessly with mechanical-assist handles. 

Higher yields

Because the Spacesaver system is so strong, it’s able to support multiple levels of plants, lights, fans, and irrigation systems. This facility opted for two levels, dramatically increasing yields.

A strong, reliable system

Spacesaver’s experience with industrial warehouses throughout North America has resulted in a robust, reliable system that allows users to move heavy loads with ease.

A phased approach

The increased productivity in one flower room justified the need for more ActivRAC systems in additional rooms. In each case we worked with staff to minimize disruption and downtime, timing new system installation to coincide with the end of each room’s harvest.

Safety and Ergonomics

The new flower room setup features four-foot-wide tables that make it easy for employees to reach every plant. Aisles can be opened and locked for safety, and aisle widths can be adjusted as needed.

Code compliance

Spacesaver’s team has decades of experience in working with architects, builders, and local officials to ensure that our systems are in compliance with applicable codes and regulations.

“We went from 10 tables to 18, and now we have way more aisle space. That keeps the employees safe and happy.”
