When it comes to storing or operating expensive or sensitive equipment, military bases need it to be as efficient and safe as possible. Here’s one conflict of interest you may have encountered: Equipment needs to be easily accessible at any moment, but when it’s not in use, equipment on the floor can get in the way of military operations.
Elevating equipment with equipment platforms keeps everyone and everything safe from potential abuse or damage as military personnel work nearby. These platforms can hold equipment like HVACs, air compressors, and other equipment critical to base operations.
Added Security Increases Workplace Safety
Equipment platforms can be designed with a gate to allow only those who are permitted to interact with the equipment to gain access to it. This measure prevents potential injury to personnel or accidental damage to equipment.
When inexperienced personnel interact with sensitive equipment, there is the chance that they could accidentally break a part of it and injure themselves through cuts or electrical shock. Have only those who are experienced and authorized to handle sensitive equipment make repairs or maintain it.
Streamlining Workflow & Optimizing Space Makes Bases More Efficient
Efficiency is not just essential in an emergency—it has a huge impact on workers’ daily routine and the military’s budget. By using platforms, equipment is out of the way of any foot and vehicle traffic. Personnel do not have to weave their way through lines of equipment to get to their destination.
In addition to more room for maneuvering, this added floor space allows more room for or other pieces of equipment or storage areas, optimizing the space. An organized space allows military bases to run efficiently and find critical equipment quickly and easily.
Avoiding Damage During Natural Disasters
Damaged equipment means costly repairs and a delayed reaction time when moving out to help with the aftermath of natural disasters. Elevating equipment like HVACS and other machines protects them from conditions that could damage exterior and interior surfaces, such as flooding. This added protection is especially important for military bases as in times of emergency they cannot afford to have equipment damaged.
