Be Sure. Always.

A military parachute rigger’s primary goal is to be certain about the safety and security of the hundreds of personnel chutes they pack and store on a daily basis—and by extension, the lives of the soldiers they protect. In fact, it’s part of the Army Quartermaster Rigger’s Pledge: “I will be sure always.” To assist with this priority, Spacesaver has engineered two durable and user-friendly products for optimal military parachute storage—the Universal Storage Container (USC) and Parachute Rack storage system.

Parachute Rack Storage System

Our Military Parachute Rack storage system provides breathable storage without taking up valuable floor space. These rugged, all steel racks feature infinite possibilities for customization depending on the application, and can be combined with a Spacesaver mobilized storage system, such as Eclipse or ActivRAC. Standard features include:

  • Adjustable cantilever arms to accommodate different size bags for changing needs
  • Infinitely adjustable horizontally, and adjustable on 6” increments vertically
  • Cantilever arms are securely held in place by a thumb screw eliminating the need to use tools
  • All materials used in the fabrication of the Parachute Rack are “non-reactive” preventing degradation of the stored materials
  • All corners are rounded and all exposed edges are meticulously deburred to prevent snagging or puncturing of stored materials
