Chris’s expertise was invaluable while the Golden Knights worked with Montel to devise a sports equipment storage solution that fits as well as a laced-up pair of skates.
The Golden Knights play at T-Mobile Arena, but they practice at City National Arena, so an investment in smarter sports equipment storage would need to address the organizational hurdles of spreading equipment across two locations.
And, no surprises here—your average shelf isn’t designed to properly or efficiently store cumbersome things like pads and sticks, let alone provide the flexibility to store them differently as needs change season after season.
Chris will be the first to tell you: managing sports equipment in the NHL is more than hunting down a clean pair of socks. Equipment can’t fill the entire storage space. Chris and his team sharpen skates and repair pads, which necessitates space for skate sharpeners and sewing machines.
In the end, the Golden Knights and Montel agreed on a Mobilex mechanical-assist mobile storage system at each of their two locations. It’s already one of the more popular mobile storage systems for sports equipment managers because of its simplicity and versatility.
Like all mobile storage systems, Mobilex’s compact, collapsible design reduces the storage footprint, reclaiming space for equipment staff. Now there’s plenty of room for comfortably sharpening skates and repairing pads.
Each Mobilex carriage comes with a SafeCrank ergonomic handle on the end panel. One pound of pressure is enough to safely move tons of equipment. The custom shelving, drawers, and racks hold helmets, jerseys, and more the way they’re meant to be held and keep them easily organized and identifiable at a snap, supporting the dedicated Golden Knights equipment staff.
