Storefront Display Conveyor for Pack-able Jackets! 32 Degrees is an activewear clothing company that focuses on providing functionality and style for the everyday wardrobe. 32 Degrees’ goal is to revolutionize the everyday basics by utilizing the latest warming and cooling technologies to deliver all day comfort throughout all seasons at a valued price. PACLINE Overhead Conveyors was contacted by 32 Degrees to help with a creative storefront marketing display in Manhattan, New York in the Macy’s department store near Times Square. The customer saw our Garment Handling Systems used in retail displays and realized that we could offer the exact solution they had envisioned. The month-long window display would feature their 32 Degrees “Heat” jacket that is pack-able into a small, convenient bag. Utilizing the PAC-LINE™ Overhead Conveyor allowed 32 Degrees to demonstrate the pack-able capability of their jacket with an interesting and eye-catching effect.                   The Challenges PACLINE was faced with some very unique challenges when engineering and installing this conveyor: Storefront room dimensions were only 3’ x 18’ Storefront display conveyor could not be bolted to ground or be hung from ceiling The VFD control system could not be displayed and could not take up a lot of room Installation had to be completed overnight and no parking was available for truck delivery The Solution The limited storefront space was PACLINE’s greatest obstacle throughout the design and install process.

Pacline Conveyors Inc. awarded Inmate Property Storage System for $100 Million Jail Project in Harris County, Texas.

Pacline Conveyors Inc. awarded Inmate Property Storage System for $100 Million Jail Project in Harris County, Texas.   Pacline Conveyors Inc., was recently awarded the contract to build and install the inmate property storage system for the new Harris County Joint Processing Center in Houston, Texas. The $100 million dollar, 250,000 square-foot facility will serve the third largest county jail system in the United States and is expected to be completed by the end of 2017. The new Joint Processing Center has been designed to improve efficiency in the correctional system by consolidating and streamlining all inmate bookings and releases for the city of Houston and the county. The Harris County Center will have the capacity to hold up to 1,500 inmates at various stages of processing. Managing the inmate property for a facility of this size is a challenge and an important reason why the builder, Clark Construction, chose PACLINE’s automated garment storage and retrieval system for the Harris County Joint Processing Center. The PACLINE system will include 12 industrial-strength PAC-LINE™ signature enclosed track conveyor loops with the capacity to carry a total of 12,000 hanging garment bags with inmate personal property. PACLINE’s RETRIEVER™  control system will allow operators the efficiency of retrieving multiple indexed bags. This is an important feature of the system as it is estimated that the Harris County Center will be processing up to 900 inmates per day. The enclosed-track design of PACLINE’s conveyor system eliminates dangerous pinch points common in other conveyor systems. This is an extremely important consideration for inmate property systems where hands and fingers of the operators can come in contact...

Say ‘YES’ to The Dress and PACLINE! For more than 60 years, the Kleinfeld Bridal Boutique has been making dreams come true for brides to be. Brides have learned that the magic of Kleinfeld lies not just in magnificent stores, not just in offering the largest and finest selection of designer wedding gowns in the world, but in the hearts of the most professional staff anywhere…a staff dedicated to delivering their every wish. In 2014, Hudson’s Bay opened a Kleinfeld salon on the 7th floor of its flagship store on Queen Street in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. With 20,000 square feet of white-washed floors and vaulted ceilings, this one-stop-shop for brides has over 700 bridal gowns, as well as bridesmaids’ and flower girl dresses, shoes, jewelry, lingerie and headpieces. The Garment Conveyor Challenge: During the renovation and re-construction of the space that would become Kleinfeld Hudson’s Bay, Pacline Overhead Conveyors was contacted to provide a garment handling solution for storing and handling the large inventory of wedding gowns and other bridal apparel. The goal for Kleinfeld was to have an automated storage and retrieval system that would maximize the space utilization of the back storage room area of the Bridal Salon. By far the bulk of the 20,000 square foot space was dedicated to the customer area with its spectacular showroom and displays and the numerous oversized fitting rooms. There were only three stock rooms, with a handling area totalling roughly 2,800 square feet. Kleinfeld set out several key objectives for their garment storage and retrieval conveyor which were to: Receive new stock including the constant rotation of Trunk Show gowns Provide storage...
