Segmenting storage to prevent small items from getting lost in large lockers


Be the first to comment

What is the issue?
Small items tend to get lost in large lockers and are typically inconvenient to find.

Why address this?
Optimising storage makes it easier to find just what you want and when you need it, making life that bit more relaxed.

How to address this?
Segment the locker storage by implementing locker trays to keep the smaller items to the top as presented in figure 1. Essentially a locker tray is a simple flat box that is very easy to construct as presented in figure 2.
Implement four solid sliding bolts into each corner to secure it for heavy weather conditions. Something of this size coming loose in the cabin in a knock down situation would be highly dangerous.
