Souderton Area High School Organizes Athletic Equipment with Datum's MobileTrak3® High Density Storage System

Share Article

The Souderton Area High School’s Athletic Department incorporated Datum's MobileTrak3 into the design of their newly constructed high school to provide centralized storage of their sports teams' uniforms and equipment. The recently installed high density storage system improved accessibility of the their athletic equipment as well as the lifespan of their uniforms by improving air flow. Previously, these items were stored in opaque bins and cardboard boxes in several different rooms that were scattered throughout the school.

To give Souderton’s Athletic Department the most cost effective solution, Datum installed a MobileTrak3® System, equipped with 4Post™ Shelving in conjunction with Storage Concepts Inc. (, a Datum Authorized Reseller.

Since the MobileTrak3® is a low profile high density storage system; it allowed them to still have a space saving mobile solution despite height restrictions in the room. All of the carriages designed were 10 feet long and incorporated different types of 4Post™ shelves, dividers, and garment rods. By utilizing different sizes of shelving and carriages, custom sized storage compartments were created for each sport the school offered. Accommodating both equipment and uniforms in the same system improved accessibility and usability.

Keeping the uniforms and equipment in closed bins or cardboard boxes meant they were susceptible to dampness, mold, and odors. The open shelving design of 4Post™ allows for optimal airflow, meaning uniforms and equipment remain dry. Hanging the uniforms also keeps screen printed logos and numbers from cracking and sticking together, resulting in an increased lifespan. Datum also matched the school's colors to promote team spirit. The extra room the MobileTrak3® created is now being used for issuing uniforms and as extra workspace for the coaches.

"Datum’s MobileTrak System has been a wonderful addition to our equipment storage," said Art Sell, Equipment Manager. "Having everything in one location, being able to separate things into different storage units, and being able to locate all the different sporting teams’ equipment in a very quick manner has been very helpful to us.”
