How Marijuana Racking Systems Maximize Growing Space and Improve Efficiency

When it comes to indoor commercial cannabis cultivation, space often comes at a premium. Using a marijuana racking system not only improves plant yields, it also maximizes space.

Also known as vertical grow systems, these racking systems allow commercial growers to use every square inch of their facilities. Systems & Space’s GROW Mobile System is vertical, movable, and configurable, minimizing wasted space both vertically and horizontally. The system enables your commercial cannabis operation to grow more plants in the same amount of space — letting you grow your yields, your profits, and your business.

The GROW Mobile System for marijuana racking offers the following benefits.

Maximize Space

Constructed of heavy-duty 14-gauge steel, Systems & Space’s vertical shelving was designed specifically for indoor cannabis growing facilities. Its sturdy, durable, and low-profile carriage moves along rails installed into the floor or another surface, effectively eliminating wasted aisle space.

  • Accommodates new or existing pallet racking and shelving.
  • 3,000 lbs. capacity per carriage/wheel section.
  • Can extend up to 60 feet long and 30 feet tall.
  • Welded horizontal bracing ensures stability.

Improve Efficiency

The larger the growing facility, the greater the expense when you factor in real estate costs and the price of effectively controlling temperature and humidity levels. However, packing the plants too closely together can lead to additional concerns like restricted air movement, uneven lighting and shade, mold and mildew growth, and pests.

As opposed to adding square footage, by growing more plants in the same space with a racking system, you can reduce energy use, improve efficiency and lower the cost-per-plant.

  • Waterfall wire decking on the top tier allows light from ceiling-mounted fixtures to reach plants.
  • Designed to accommodate ventilation and irrigation systems.
  • Steel drain trays can be used in place of decking.
  • By freeing up space in aisles, water build-up can make its way to drainage systems, ensuring air humidity remains consistent.

Increase Safety

With the turn of a mechanical-assist handle, staff can easily and safely access aisles when needed, providing full accessibility to every plant. The GROW mobile system is outfitted with anti-tip rails, safety locks, welded uprights and other features to make your commercial grow room setup safer.

  • Three-spoked handle moves thousands of pounds with minimal effort.
  • User-activated anti-roll safety lock prevents unexpected carriage movement.

At Systems & Space, every vertical growing system is customized to meet your needs and is designed to optimize airflow, light and space for healthy plants. Contact our team for more information.
