The systems are comprised of three main components: vertical racking constructed from heavy-duty steel and can be installed either stationary or on the Spacesaver mobile system; the carriages which house patented mechanisms that allow staff to safely move thousands of pounds with minimal effort; and rails which guide the carriages, creating a safe and easy path for movement around the grow facility. Additionally, Spacesaver and RMJ offer a harvest and drying rack solution that works seamlessly with the vertical grow solution, providing an overall efficient system for growing, harvesting, and transporting with fewer steps, translating to safer and cleaner operations.
