SPACESAVER – Military Parachute Storage

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.

Rack vs. Container:

Specifically designed with input from parariggers around the world, the Universal Storage Container is constructed with heavy-duty 12 ga. diamond perforated steel panels and 11 ga. steel frame. Additional features include:

  • Structurally welded reinforced base for fork lift access, as well as fork truck access on all four sides
  • Heavy-duty top panels lift and pivot out of the way for full clearance to the interior
  • Stackable—up to 3 high
  • Accommodates heavy-duty padlocks with up to ½” diameter shank
  • Optimized for use with Spacesaver’s mobilized storage system, ActivRAC
  • Available in two sizes: standard (up to 40 T-11 parachutes) and large (up to 64 T-11 parachutes)

The 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
