System IV is Aero-Docks most advanced and sophisticated level of storage and offers the highest density possible. This is because 90 to 95% of a facility’s floor space is used for active boat storage. When the cost per site acre/hectare is very high this design can put many more boats on your land due to no aisle within the building. Due to this systems higher cost its application is best suited to land areas with high cost. Also this designed storage system is better suited to handle larger heavier vessels. The boats can be stored on a permanent set of bunks/rails mounted on the indexing carousel or for vessels over 46 feet (15 meters) the boat may be stored on a fitted custom sized carrier. Consult with Aero-Docks staff concerning if bunks or carriers is best on larger boats up to 75ft (23m).
Our original design was an oval carousel which is the design shown in the 4 minute video on our video page. The carousel has evolved from the oval shape shown in the DVD into a simpler and more efficient square indexing design but concept is same. By squaring the system with boats moved at each end to opposite side done simultaneously at both ends a significant higher density can be achieved using nearly all of available floor space for actual storage and income producing linear footage. This system has NO AISLE inside the building.
You can see the original design and current design in the following two images.
