The Result

The LEVPRO system allowed teachers to move all the frequently used items, including summer school items, into the units by the gym and get rid of rundown homemade shelving.

Solution in Action: Fort Atkinson High School


School sports team equipment was stored in cramped, cluttered storage cages, making it difficult to protect and find items.


The football team added a high density mobile system with sport-specific accessories such as shoulder pad racks and hanging rods to their cage.


Even within the small space, the football team gained significantly more storage space. Uniforms and gear are now organized, protected from damage, and easy to navigate.
